Thompson leads BKA points

Nine drivers won races in a hugely competitive fourth round of the 2023 Sectus Technologies Barbados Karting Association (BKA) Championship at Bushy Park race circuit last Sunday.

While Blake Thompson increased his lead in the champion driver title chase, the battle has intensified in both the Cadets and Easykarts Lights, where single-figure points margins now separate the front-runners.

Cousins Zak and Jacob Mayers, who were absent from the 60cc Cadet class last month, returned to the fray in determined mood. Jacob was the fastest qualifier, but Zak won the opening race, by just 0.3 seconds, then two more as the cousins battled for supremacy.

Jacob won race three by the day’s smallest margin of 0.1 seconds. Points leader Aeden Bruce was third in all four races, but his class lead has been cut from 29 points to just five by Zak, with Jacob also much closer in third place. (PR)
