Horseman continues dominant start to new karting campaign

Dominant drive: Blake Horseman won each of the three heats in the Tag Senior class at the Southside Raceway

Blake Horseman continued his impressive start to the new Bermuda Karting Club National Championships campaign with another perfect outing in the third round at the Southside Raceway on Sunday.

Building on the momentum of achieving the same feat in the previous round, Horseman was again at his dominant best, winning each of the three heats in the Tag Senior class.

In the first two races, he took the chequered flag ahead of Bilal Binns and Richard Walker-Talbot, with Brian Bulholes clinching second place in the final heat, ahead of Binns, who completed the podium places.

Meanwhile, Jason North saw his supremacy halted somewhat in the L206 Seniors class.

Having won each of the previous six races this season, he maintained his flawless record by also claiming victory in the first heat of the day on Sunday, finishing ahead of Scott Barnes and Marc Tucker.

However, in the following race, North failed to finish inside the top five, as Tucker took the victory, with David Barbosa finishing second and Barnes third. The final heat did see North back in the podium places, but he had to settle for second place, as Barnes took the chequered flag, with Barbosa crossing the line in third place.

Ryan Rebello enjoyed a successful outing in the Shifter class, picking up two wins from three.

Having got off to a slow start, finishing fifth in the first heat, which was won by Stephen Corrado, ahead of Ryan Burgess and Jorja Thomas, Rebello clinched victory in heats two and three, to end on a high. Burgess and Thomas finished with three successive second and third-place finishes respectively.

Of the two drivers competing in the Modified Shifter class, Shannon Caisey prevailed over rival D'Nico Durrant in each of the respective three heats.

There was also an exciting battle in the Cadets class with both Jonah Moniz and Syah Pedro claiming victories. The former prevailed in the first heat, with Pedro claiming back-to-back wins in the remaining races. Roman Wilkinson completed the podium places in each of the heats.
