Dan Healey of Yate wins Adult Kart Championship at Castle Combe
5:00pm Saturday 7th September 2013 in Yate and Sodbury Sport
YATE teenager Dan Healey has also become the first person to win consecutive Junior and Adult Kart Championship titles at Castle Combe.
He brought home the Adult title after winning three out of four heats and his semi-final, which gave him his starting position of second on the grid for the final shoot out for trophies. Healey took the lead into the first corner and extended this throughout the race.
Within the last two laps, the second-placed driver was catching and was bumper to bumper for the final lap, but Healey held his defence very well to take home yet another first place trophy.
Healey is the youngest competitor at the Adult Kart Championships where they start from the age of 15 with other racers in their 20s, 30s and even 50s.
He achieved enough points not to have to turn up to the final race on Saturday, October, 12 when he will collect his Championship Trophy.
First prize for winning this Championship is free entry into the British Rental Kart Championships in January 2014 where he will be competing against 100 other drivers; some UK and some World Kart Champions.
Healey won another trophy on the weekend in the Juniors.
He won two out of four of his heats, and started fourth in the final shoot out, jumping to second on the first corner and then taking the lead and driving off into the distance soon afterwards.
Healey is also leading the Junior Championship after three of seven rounds.
