STRS Win Round 2 of Karting Championship
On Wednesday 24th February 21 boys making up 7 teams from Sir Thomas Rich’s competed in Round 2 of the British Schools Karting Championship at JDR Karting in Gloucester.
STRS A-Team won the night with Toby Hogg and Zak Taylor particularly impressive both winning two races each. Louis Appleyard of STRS A supported his team mates with two fourth place finishes with fastest laps in his races and an excellent drive from 11th to 4th place in his second race. This team will now compete at the South West Regional finals at Thruxton in April.
Second and third overall places in the completion went to very competitive teams from Hanley Castle School and All Saints Academy. This was disappointing for Tommies pupils who produced some very strong drives but were just beaten in the overall standings. Notable individual race performances were achieved by Remo Buccianti 2nd place, Gregory George 2nd place, Andy Isaac 2nd place, Ryan Birch 3rd place and Lewis Sugden 3rd place.
