Nelson karters top the podium

Nelson karters Barker and Gridley finish top two in Palmerston North


Nelson's Kevin Barker finished top of the podium in Palmerston North.

Wherever Nelson kart racers Kevin Barker and Brendon Gridley go around the country they seem joined at the hip.

And once again they've both finished on the podium at round two of the Bayleys WPKA Goldstar series in Palmerston North at the weekend.

Barker took three wins across five heats in the Rotax Heavy Class and was lucky to take a strong third place finish in heat four after his kart was airborne from clipping a spun kart on turn two of the opening lap. Gridley wasn't as lucky after he got caught up in some carnage, but drove very well to finish second behind Barker. Ashley Higgins from Palmerston North rounded out the top three.

"We got a 1-2 finish down south but it's normally me that is the bridesmaid, so it's great to finally beat my good mate and take the win," Barker said.

Barker is now sitting first equal on points for the Goldstar series with Higgins and Gridley only one point behind in third.

Bo Hill and Ollie Workman, in the Cadet Rok class, also made the trip north. Neither driver had been to the very technical, fast-flowing Palmerston North track before and showed some great speed. Hill finished in eighth place and Workman in 12th.

This was also Louise Gridley's first time at the track and she finished 16th in the Vortex Mini Rok class and improved her pace across the weekend.
