Ryan Rebello, Scott Barnes prove too slick
It proved a day of dominant displays across the five classes as the Bermuda Karting Club hosted its first trophy day of the season, the Vincent “Slick” Lewis Memorial Race.
There were perfect displays from individual drivers in no less than four of the classes, with each picking up victories in all three heats run.
That included Ryan Rebello, who was at his dominant best in the Stock Shifter class, holding off the challenge of Stephen Corrado in each heat. Ryan Burgess completed the podium places in the first two races, with Jorja Thomas claiming a third-place finish in the final heat of the day.
Scott Barnes also enjoyed an impressive outing in the highly competitive L206 Senior class. Fresh from competing in the Rock Island Grand Prix in Illinois last week, he had the ideal return to racing on island, picking up three wins from three.
David Barbosa sealed second place in the first and final race, with Jason North finishing behind Barnes in the second heat. Barbosa also finished on the final step of the podium in heat two, with Max Corriea and Marc Tucker finishing third in heat one and heat three respectively.
The Tag Senior class proved a little more closely fought, with Blake Horseman and Bilal Binns both claiming heat victories. Horseman took the chequered flag in the first and third race, with Binns taking the honours in the second. The latter also picked up two second-place finishes, while Jauza James finished second to Binns in heat two.
Just two drivers took to the track in the L206 Masters class with Robert Wheatley prevailing over Patrick Stamper in each of the three heats.
There was also a small field of three drivers in the Cadet class in which Jonah Moniz dominated claiming three successive race wins. Isaiah Daniels Green settled for second in each of the heats, with Roman Wilkinson third.
