15.02.15 LONDON LEAGUE... ROUND FOUR
With 3 rounds gone in the first ever London League it was time to hit the International Track at Tower Bridge.
Brandon Abraham led the table before tonights event but now came to the track he has the least experience on. Some regular Tower members were in the line up and looking to gain points on the league leader.
In the first heat regular Tower members Oswald Bousseau, Francesco Poderi and Tim Carolan made up the top three with Oz getting the quickest opening lap time.
Heat 2 saw Francesco set the fastest lap with Tim second and Brandon finding his feet in third.
Tim took the fastest lap in heat 3 with Tyler Mays getting a quick time in for second place.
Heat 4 showed that experience isn't always key with Brandon and Tyler in the top 2. With only 2 heats remaining it was all about getting those quick lap times in and the lap times started to drop.
In the penultimate heat Tim Carolan recorded a 59.492 lap, the quickest of the night. Brandon was in second and new League entrant Billy Hutchings put himself into contention in third.
The final heat is where the laps got really competitive. Francesco pulled out a rapid 59.418 to take the win and Oswald just behind him with a 59.436. Tim's best was a 59.492 to make up an incredibly close top 3.
We now move onto the next event, The Eliminator at London Docklands on March 18th!
04.02.15 LONDON LEAGUE... ROUND THREE
Tyler Mays claims Round 3 and accelerates to 2nd place in the current league table!
We had 12 drivers race in what was an epic event on Wednesday 4th February for Round 3 of the London League.
The format was our exciting Eliminator event which is set as 5 minutes practice, 25 qualify and a 30 minute race. 18 minutes into the race and the last driver at the back of the grid on every other lap is black flagged to leave the circuit - the ultimate last karter standing competition!
Brandon Abraham was the quickest in the qualifier followed by Tyler Mays. The race was very intense at start and the top drivers in the event found it very hard to race as everyone was eager to claim that top spot and avoid elimination!
In the end, the epic battle came down to Tyler Mays, Brandon Abraham and Jake Cassetta meaning North London regular members such as Joe, Gerard, Anand and Hannah could not make it into the top three positions despite all their efforts. All drivers however created an EPIC competition throughout making it a fun night for all and a memorable night of karting.
3rd Place... Jake Cassetta
2nd Place... Brandon Abraham
1st Place... Tyler Mays
