Trevor Roberts once again (for the second time in 2 years) won the British Kart Grand Prix for F250 Nationals at Cadwell Park on 22nd July, driving his Viper Racing UK Honda/Anderson.The day was made doubly special for Ian Harrison of Viper when Trevor's team mate, Dean Hawley took the second step of the podium with his similar mount. In the early stages young Sam Moss was running up the front using a Viper customer engine and there was a real possibility of a Viper 1,2,3 until Sam was sidelined with a broken front upright on his Maverick. He is definitely a "Star of The Future". Third place was taken by "Fife Flyer" Matthew Bett who discovered a gearbox fault when he fired up his kart as the race was called. He somehow still managed to make the grid after a lightening fast engine change and his result was most deserved, particularly as he also celebrated his first wedding anniversary (The wedding caused him to miss last years event). This gave a Northern Ireland, England, Scotland 1 - 2 - 3 Trevor as most will know is the last CIK/FIA Gearbox World Champion, returning to race (after a 7 year retirement) with Viper Racing at Silverstone in November 2005. Trevor currently leads the British Championship from Gavin Bennett, however, once dropped scores are brought into play it is extremely close and yet another exciting climax for the Championship is in prospect. There are two further meetings to go at Mallory Park and back to Cadwell Park for the Finale. Dean was using an Anderson Maverick chassis for the first time this season having previously been Viper's development driver for the MS Kart, which has now been returned to the Czech factory for modification/updating. Dean's extra pace was immediate and after challenging Gavin Bennett strongly for the lead in his qualifying heat, he finished 3rd when slowed (slightly!!) with a deflating rear tyre, which was totally flat and "off the rim" by the time he returned to the paddock. The 2 scheduled British Championship rounds had to be abandoned on the Saturday due to the monsoon conditions that covered most of the UK. Sunday, by contrast, was fine and bright and all races took place in good conditions. Very comprehensive results are available from The British Superkart Racing Club website using the link below: It is hopeful that Trevor will be competing in the US Kart GP in December subject to obtaining suitable Formula E equipment capable of taking the outright win!!
