Tarvin Racers Take Trophies

Home » Newsroom » Tarvin Racers Take Trophies

The weekend of 1st / 2nd July saw Tarporley School karting team take part in the 46th National Schools Karting Championship, with three of the team from our own village.

Daniel Kenny -Tarporley school karting 2017

In the Comer Cadet class for younger drivers Daniel Kenny had a weekend of mixed fortunes, including a visit to the ambulance after a racing incident, and a technical non-finish after an accident caused damage to the kart resulting in unsafe bodywork. This didn't stop Daniel though, and at the end of the weekend he brought home the National Sprint Trophy, together with the overall championship shield.

Amy Duke / Katie Pritchard Tarporley school kartin

In the high powered Junior TKM, cousins Katie Pritchard and Amy Duke resumed their season long battle. This has been Katie's first season in the fast and highly competitive class and she did herself very proud finishing 10th of the 29 drivers for the weekend, and 14th in the annual championship. Katie's favourite racing moment of the weekend came in the final race of cousin Amy's NatSKA career when the cousins came home in 3rd and 4th places.

Amy Duke -Tarvin racer

For Amy Duke it was always going to be an emotional weekend as it marked the end of her school's karting career. With some brilliant results on Saturday (including a fantastic drive from 27th on the grid to 2nd at the finish) Amy set up a charge to the trophy for Sunday, narrowly missing out on claiming the National Sprint title for the weekend, and claiming 4th place in the annual championship.

The meeting ended with an "end of term" water fight with Amy and fellow retiring TKM driver Charlie Mooney from Oswestry being well and truly drenched by their teammates who all wanted to wish them well for the future!
