Two Nelson Karters On The Podium

Two Nelson Karters On The Podium

Nelson secured a double podium finish when the last round of the Bayleys WPKA Goldstar series was held in Hawke's Bay at the weekend.


Four Nelson karters have been competing in the series and both Brendon Gridley and Kevin Barker went into the weekend with a chance of winning the Rotax Heavy title. Gridley had a one-point advantage over Palmerston North driver Ashley Higgins and two points over Barker.


The three had been battling it out throughout the whole series with all of the drivers taking a win at each of the previous three rounds. This weekend though there was another driver in the mix in Hawke's Bay's former national champion Zach Zaloum.


Zaloum showed that local knowledge was the key and went on to win the weekend from Higgins and Gridley with Barker coming home in fourth. Higgins and Gridley were tied on first equal on points for the Goldstar series and even after a count back they were still tied. Barker's fourth-place finish was enough for him to finish third overall for the series which gave Nelson a double result on the podium.


Louise Gridley, racing in the Vortex Mini Rok class had the hard job of learning a new track aswell as racing on the same weekend but improved her pace throughout the races to finish 13th for the weekend and 12th for the series.


Jackson Rooney from Palmerston North was the only driver to win all of the rounds to win the series from Marlborough driver and current 2nz William Exton. Thomas Boniface rounded out the series podium.


Ollie Workman in the Cadet Rok had a weekend to forget as he was taken out in two of the heats heading into turn one and then had engine issues for the rest of the day, confining him to the side lines. He finished the series 11th overall. Liam Sceats from Auckland took out the series win with current South Island champion Louis Sharp second and Mason Potter third.
