Barker wins big in Christchurch

alt

Nelson's Kevin Barker has won both the Garden City Championship and Mainland series titles after a successful weekend's racing in Christchurch.

Barker was one of 12 Nelson kart racers who joined over 60 drivers from across the South Island and attended the Garden City Championships hosted by Kartsport Canterbury.

The two-day event was also the last two rounds of the Mainland series which kicked off in Nelson and Marlborough back in June and Southland and Dunedin two months ago.

Barker racing in the Rotax Heavy class took out both championships, after winning both days of racing at the Garden City Champs. Canterbury's Andy Down's put up a hard fight but finished runner up to Barker with Nelson's Darryl Wehner third.

Ollie Workman in the Cadet Rok class was in the box seat to emulate Barker's efforts.

Workman won day one of the Garden City Champs on Saturday and was leading the final on Sunday until his chain broke mid race resulting him in a DNF. It was clubmate and good friend Lochiel McGregor who picked up the pieces and went on to win the race and event from Southland's Jacob Earley and Canterbury's Sam Knight.

Workman had done enough to win the Mainland Series though, Canterbury's Josh Milne finishing second and Louis Sharp rounding off the podium in third.

The Mainland series also has an inter-club trophy which was awarded to Kartsport Nelson for having the best average of points across all the Nelson drivers that entered the series.

This Saturday at The Hits Chocolate Velvet Kart Raceway in Appleby drivers will be getting themselves geared up for the King of the Tarmac, which is their last chance before the Mike Pero South Island Sprint Champs in a few weeks' time. Racing kicks off at 11am, and spectator entry is free.
