Flamboro Speedway was the place to be on Saturday (May 26) for anyone that races 4 cycle Honda karts. For the third straight race, more than 100 Waterloo Regional Kart club members took to the track in pursuit of valuable points for the 2012 season championship. Everyone on hand was treated to some great racing action. It was especially good to see many new members starting to show they will be competing for a podium finish in the not too distant future.
The race day sponsor was the family and friends of Everett Colling. On June 2nd, many family members and friends will join Jane Colling in the Hamilton Walk for ALS (Lou Gehrigís disease) as she raises money in memory of her late husband Everett. Everett had a passion for racing and classic cars, and he was a former president of the Canadian Vintage Modified Racing Club. Jane collected donations for her walk at registration, and throughout the race day. She was overjoyed at the end of the day, stating she had exceeded all her expectations thanks to the generosity of the WRKC members.
ALS is a paralyzing, life ending condition that attacks and kills the motor neurons in the body. It denies it victims the ability to move, to speak, and finally to breathe.
In the Cadet A class, Josh Bisschop captured the feature win, leading Trevor Robillard, Liam Rhodes, Carson Nagy, and Keidon Fletcher the checkered flag.
Luke Pero was the victor in the Cadet B feature, edging Logan Sopha, Morgan Ramsden, Jarrett Balzer, and Blaine Robinson.
Ciarra Collison was the driver to beat in the Novice feature, crossing the stripe ahead of Aaron Turnbull, Madison Colling, Peter Ditner, and Austin Wadham.
In Jr. Heavy, Tyler Turnbull emerged with the feature victory, ahead of Justin Collison, Jared Gill, Taylor Mantel, and Kenny Rockwell.
Sr. Medium witnessed Tristan Gill taking home the feature win, while Adam Racine, David Miller, James Moore, and Dominique Smith completed the top-five.
Brian Wilkinson was the Masters feature winner, besting James Woods, Bob Bailey, Michael Grinyer, and Paul Rhodes.
