Inter Service Karting at Fulbeck

In Karting Team by RNRMMSA

This weekend saw the third round of the Inter-service championship take place at Fulbeck, Lincolnshire.

The team entered 3 karts into the endurance race this round, 45, driven by SLt Jean-Luke Laister & LAET Sam Cresswell, 89, driven by Lt Sam Harris & PO Alan Grier and 98 driven by myself and LA(ACMN) Liam Waterhouse. Jean-Luke also entered the Premier race in his Iame X30.

Most of Saturday was spent making slight alterations to kart setup, heading in to qualifying, kart 45 was looking on the pace.

Laister won 2 of the 3 premier heats, putting him in second place to start the final. After taking the lead into the first corner and holding on to what was looking like a victory, his chain let go on lap 5, retiring him from the race.

Qualifying then came for the endurance race, with 35 karts on the track it was hard to find a clean lap. Kart 45 qualified 7th military, with 98 in 13th military just 0.36 seconds behind 45, and 89 in 24th.

Unfortunately it appeared the racing gods were not on our side this weekend, as the bad luck continued into the endurance race with 45 snapping a stub axle, and 89 retiring further into the race with a shifting rear axle.

98 had a reasonable race, finishing 10th military with some wheel to wheel racing along the way. On to the next round at Rowrah.
