Lombardy Karting Under the Lights Grand Prix a Great Success

Well once the afternoon monsoon was over, the evening became one of the nicest ones all summer for the third annual Lombardy under the Lights Gran Prix.

With the temperature dropping and the sun still out, the event commenced with the Lombardy Karting track crew cleaning and drying the track, finishing just in time to for the novice class to head out for their first heat.

On hand for the third edition of the premier event on the Club's calendar were racers from NCKC, Mosport and Sudbury karting clubs, joined by the regular cast of Lombardy characters for one of the best races events this season.

The racing action was some of the best ever seen, as eight classes took to the track over the evening to race for the amazing trophies supplied by the nights sponsor, Total Fence of Ottawa. From the novice to the masters it was anyone’s race, as the Briggs powered karts seem to all come alive in the cool evening air, with bumper to bumper racing continuing well into the night. Action in the Box Stock classes was also intense as the points chase for the championship is close in both classes giving the spectators some great racing action to watch. In the end, the locals gave some of the visiting veterans a lesson in old school, inverted grid racing, Lombardy style. The features were completed by 11 pm, followed by the podium presentations to present the evenings winners with their trophies.

The Lombardy Karting management and racers would like to give a big thanks to Total Fence in Ottawa, Cavanagh Construction in Carleton Place, Contractors Rental Supply in Ottawa, and Battlefield Equipment in Ottawa for their generous support to make this evening a huge success.
