Sprint Championship starts 2016 with a Burst

Saturday 6th February saw Round 1 of the Prokart SSS Sprint series start off with burst! That’s right, not a bang, a burst. After some delays with the timing system, heat 2 of the 390cc class ended with the last 10 laps under a massive cloud burst. Last year’s 12 hour race had 11 hours of rain. Just as much rain came down in the last 10 laps and the 30 minutes thereafter. With the track and pits flooded with water and hail, round 1 came to an abrupt end, with most competitors taking cover in the clubhouse.

With the 2 full heats that we managed to fit in, there was enough racing action to produce results for the day. Here are the highlights, full results can be found on the Sprint Results page.
