Workman Opens Season In Fine Form


Kartsport Nelson's 2017 year started with a bang with a lot of drivers very keen to get points banked in round one of the Cutting Edge Signs Club Points Championship on Sunday.

In the Cadet Rok class Ollie Workman from Brightwater dominated the field winning all his five heats. Young Josh Milne from Christchurch finished in second and Maia Nicholson, a new driver from Brightwater, was third.

Like Workman, Bo Hill from Mapua also dominated in the Vortex Mini Rok class, taking all five wins. Josh Bradley was second and Louise Gridley rounded out the podium.

Marlborough driver William Exton won four of the five heats with Dominic Robertson from Christchurch taking the other race win. Pip Coakley from Mahana was third.

Nelson racer Tony Dyer broke the lap record in the Briggs Light class on his way to winning all five heats. Carey Burr stepped up his game also and came home second ahead of Ben Oliver in third.

Nick Stilborn showed similar form to Dyer in the Briggs Heavy class, also breaking the lap record and winning all five heats. Chris Winter was second and Ron O'Hara was third.

Like his father, Ben Stilborn took top points in the Rotax Max Light class from Daryl Wehner and David Hope who rounded out the top three.

The racing was exciting to watch in the Rotax Heavy class with tight tussles happening everywhere. Bryce Borlase took the overall win from Kevin Barker and Duncan Barrett finished third.

Round two of the club points championship will be held at The Hits Chocolate Velvet Kart Raceway in Redwood Valley on March 26.
