MOTOR SPORT: Aaron Alexander enjoyed victory in the pro-class of round three in the British Pro Kart Championships in Dorchester.
That was despite driving a newly-built kart that was not finished until the night before it was in action.
Saturday saw West Norfolk’s Alexander and teammate Kieran Lambert testing it ahead of Sunday’s race day.
Alexander earned ninth place on a grid of 41 drivers in qualifying and in the actual race was up to fourth before a collision sent the kart airborne, dropping him to 10th spot.
Lambert brought the team back up to eighth place and Alexander’s next stint saw them move into sixth spot overall and the pro class lead, a position they held until the end.
λ Stowbridge racer Marcus Hudson suffered a seized engine and fuelling issues during a four-race weekend in the NKF Super 4 250 Championship at Fulbeck, n Lincolnshire.
Despite that, he managed three eighth-place finishes in the heats, having started the day third on the grid for the opening race.
He suffered more problems in the final, chasing a kart that was spilling anti-freeze over the circuit, creating a slippery surface. After passing that obstacle, Hudson enjoyed some tussles on his way to ninth place.
