Go Karting – 22nd January 2017

Those Mercia members that represented the region at last year’s Inter-regional championships on Hayling Island were invited to either a karting day or a spa day courtesy of the Mercia Petanque Association.gk1

The Karting was held last Sunday, 22nd January, and although the weather was bitterly cold, everyone had a great time. The competitors were separated into two groups who then completed a ten minute time trial. The time trial resulted in finding the fastest racers in each group who then competed against each other in a 20 minute final.

gk2In group one, the results were in 3rd place John Proctor, 2nd place Graham Dear , and in 1st position Steve Harrington who led from the start. In group two, it was a closely fought battle between Paul Bult , Mike Ricketts and Daniel Chalmers. Mike managed to gain the lead until 2 laps from the  finish when an incident caused him to spin off. This gave Paul the opportunity to come through to take the winners prize with Wayne Marshall 2nd and Daniel Chalmers 3rd.

Well done to everyone!
