This caps a great year for Herefordshire Raceway staff as race director Lee Hackett won the British Rental Kart Championship in July. Lee won the championship by 4 points with a top 5 finish at the final round.
Both drivers will be aiming to retain their respective championships in 2013 with support from Herefordshire Raceway.
The Herefordshire Raceway Junior Championship was decided by 1 point last Sunday. Matthew Tinning from Gloucester beat Max Richardson to the tittle by just a single point by gaining 3rd position in the final event on the last lap, this was enough to secure him his first title and be crowned Herefordshire Raceway Junior Champion 2012!!
Max Richardson set fastest lap on the way to winning the final event which looked like enough to wrestle the championship from Matt, however, Matt’s last lap move on Jonah Barker secured him enough points to beat his main rival.
Max finished runner up after winning two of the six rounds, Tom Bennett who also had a shot at the tittle at the final round finished 2nd, this securing him 3rd overall in the championship.
Matt Tinning was the class of the field for most of the year and deserved his championship. Winning 3 rounds early on made it an almost impossible task for the others to catch him and his move at the final round to secure the title was the move of the season under pressure!
Tom Bennett won the final round of the Herefordshire Raceway Junior Novice Championship, his 5th win of the year, to comfortably win the championship by 9 points.
Closest rival Quintin Hayward finished 3rd in class to seal 2nd overall. Star drive at the final round was Jonah Barker, he secured pole for the main final and finally finished for 2nd in class. This was enough to steal 3rd place in the championship off Reece Lycett by a single point.
Star Novice Driver
5 wins and 5 fastest laps say it all really, Tom Bennett was the star performer in the novice class, almost winning the main championship while he was at it!
