A day of kart racing in Discovery Bay
- Written by arounddb, 24 April 2016
In its second edition, Harvey Law Group's recently held Kart Race was a smashing success.
Over 60 participants turned up last Saturday, April 23rd. More than 250 one on one races took place along Seabird lane. 14 wooden karts were used a pair at a time, sliding down a big, red-orange ramp at the starting point. 22 volunteers made sure that no one got hurt.
First, second, and third prizes were awarded in five age categories from 8 to 12 years. At the end of the day, Emma Bishop, Josh Williams, and Charlie Campbell won 1st to 3rd place among the 8-year-olds; Miles Ellis, Jamie Ellis, and Finn Robinson won 1st to 3rd place for the 9-year-olds; Luca Ameresekere, Ethan Manautines, and Mitch McKinstry won 1st to 3rd for the 10-year-olds; Tyler Khang, Thomas Robinson, and Reece Acorn placed 1st to 3rd for the 11-year-olds; and Madeline Ellis, Sangita Ganesh, and Juliet Pudwill take home 1st to 3rd prizes among the 12-year-olds.
Zackary McGuiness won the Free Style category, for his menacing and cleverly-built "tank" kart.
