KARTERS from across the country arrived at Huntingdon Kart Racing Club on Sunday to contest the third round of the Summer Series.
In the Cadet class Dan Fazzone nipped past early leader Charlie Savage for the win, to leave Savage to hold off a fast gaining Ellis Hanks. Ben Tuck won the novice trophy, gaining eight places to finish 14th overall.
In Junior Rotax, Bobby Neil made the most of his pole position to lead throughout. Aaron Head pulled back from a poor start for a well-earned second spot, with Harry Edwards winning the novice trophy.
It took Toby Reynolds some time to open up a gap from Tom D'Arcy in Minimax, and D'Arcy was eventually caught by a fast-running Jay Goodwin who came through to take second behind Reynolds after a mid-grid start. Martin Murad took the novice trophy.
In Junior TKM Billy Baxter made a flying start and was never challenged as he won by a comfortable margin. The action all happened behind him as karters capitalised on their rivals' mistakes. Sam Randon led March's Adam Strong over the line for second place, and the novice award went to Andrew Rush.
Mike Spencer showed his class in Senior Rotax, lapping faster and faster throughout the race, pulling away from Dan Russell and Dale Head.

The early race leader in Rotax 177, James Darch, looked comfortable for five laps but Tim Penton hauled him in. Although the field bunched when the safety flag came out, Penton drove a steady race on the clear track to take top slot. Darch was relegated to third after Lee Torrie swept by him. Jamie Turner took the honours as top novice.
In the 177 veterans Ian Alexander took top step on the podium, holding off a fast-finishing Steve Sawford. Catworth's Robin Milton came home in third, and Andy Parker was the best novice.
The Gearbox 125 and 250 classes were taken by Richard Palmer and Martin Smith respectively. In the 125 class Palmer's race turned into a procession with Richie Schmitz in second, but Smith had to work his way past Ron Stamp for his win.
In the 210 Challenge pole position man Charles Morris dropped out on lap one. After some cat-and-mouse racing with Dan Bury, Lee Plain managed to take control on lap five to win by more than seven seconds.
