Great afternoon of racing at Round 5 of the 2016 Pembrokeshire Karting Championship. Several new drivers took to the track in what turned out to be a very competitive afternoon.
An early charge by Stuart Davis saw him claim pole in the lightweight qualifying followed by two race wins leading many to suspect he was on course for his first PKC win. That was until Sam Joseph was able to reverse the momentum into his favour by winning the final two races which was enough to climb ahead of Stuart on the podium for the win. Fresh off his victory at the PKC45K, William Samuel Dolbear who tops the Lightweight standings was eager to increase the margin to his rivals but found himself having to deal with a returning Carwyn Bowen who just pipped him to the third spot on the podium.
In the Heavyweight division, Michael Lloyd Davies and Brian Newtoncontinued their battle for the title, but found they had to contend with new driver Geoff Marsh who instantly showed he had the pace to be at the front of the pack. Despite consistent finishes, Michael was forced to accept second overall to Geoff whilst Brian took third.
With his result, Brian is still on course to win the Masters Trophy, whilstMelany Howell still tops the Female standings but could be placed under pressure from Jess Holmes in the closing stages of the Championship.David Burger maintains his lead in the Rookie standings ahead of George Rogers.
After the event, we held our fourth Fastest Lap Challenge of the year, which saw Sam Joseph win, but is just 0.05 ahead of Stuart Davis in the league table.
Organisers would like to thank the staff at Carew Karting for hosting the event and Ryan Thomas of R. Thomas Photography for capturing the action on camera.
The PKC will return after the Summer break for Round 6.
