It was another epic VRCBC Kart Race on November 6th. A full grid of 12 karts and 36 drivers took the green flag at TBC in Richmond for the one hour race; even more impressively they all made it to the end! You can see the complete results here.

The winning Team ‘CPR’ (not the railroad) of Greg Campbell, Gunter Pichler and Phil Roney beat the second place Team ‘Over the Hill’ (an appropriate name perhaps?) of Ian Wood, Keith Robinson and Paul Haym by only 29 seconds. The gap was actually down to five seconds with only a minute to go when a hard charging Ian Wood decided to try passing some lapped traffic by taking the high side on the banking of the last turn – except there is no banking on this kart track (see photo).

Team ‘Over the Hill’ never let up throughout however. Both Ian Wood (at 29.828 seconds) and Keith Robinson (at 29.986 seconds) broke the 30 second lap barrier. They would have made it even closer if they had not made an unnecessary extra pit stop / driver change. (It is always best to pay full attention throughout the full pre-race drivers meeting!)

Team META (of Roger Salomon, Thomas Leisner and Angus Glass) took the final place on the podium; these veteran corner workers leaving many supposedly ‘real’ racers in their dust.

The fight for fourth place was extremely close with three teams separated by only three seconds at the finish. Team Ogre (Jock Hobson, Peter Chappell, Chris Wilberg) took fourth followed by Team Quick (Evan Fraser, Malcolm Curtis, Bernie Hamm) and then the previous (in March) race winning Team Tiger (Trevor Yip, Doug Yip, Steve Hodge).

Planning is already underway for the next race in the New Year. Check out some more photos of this action-packed event below.
