Whilton Mill hosted the closest and most exciting races of the Elite Karting League season so far yesterday. Standings leaders Teamsport Titans had an impressive six wins throughout the day and were again the top Endurance team of the day but despite five sprint wins, the Birmingham Wheels Bullets were crowned the top team of the event having finished eight times in the top three of the twelve sprint races. Overall the points tally was close but the Bullets have closed the gap to the lead with one double-header event remaining in November.

The home team, Northampton Knights, notched up an impressive three wins and finished third on the day, while the girls' teams had their best events with the AKS Angels scoring their first win and the Teesside Angry Birds winning the £600 cash prize 'Race of Champions'. The Teesside squad had a huge battle over the 15 minute race, lying in second and pushing hard throughout. It was only on the penultimate lap that Teesside's Maddie Saunders managed to pass Jack O'Neill for Teamsport Titans.

24 teams competed in identical karts with Biz Kart Evo chassis and twin GX160 Honda engines with drivers weight equalised to 85kg. Following a one hour practice session, drivers competed in a packed schedule of 12 ten lap races, a Race of Champions qualifying and a 15 minute race on the national circuit before qualifying and two one-hour endurance races on the international circuit.

Kat Pope, EKL Coordinator: “Whilton Mill was our best round so far. Everyone was very organised and so the day ran smoothly and the racing was fantastic. The 'dash for cash' was the closest it's ever been and now four different teams have claimed the prize money in four events which shows how competitive the racing is.”
