Congratulations:

The Club is very proud of Jordan (Jordie) Ford in winning the 2017 CIK European Superkart Mono 250 (National) Championship.

 

Jordie won all three events of the series at Donnington (G.B.) Assen (the Netherlands) and Le Mans (France) setting Lap records along the way.

Driving a Factory backed Anderson Kart he certainly dominated the series backed by the skills of his team, Russell Anderson, Matt Morell, and

Scott & Dale Williams.

 

Second place went to Brit Gavin Bennett and third to fellow Brit Paul Platt.

 

 

In the 250 International class German Peter Elkmann took out first place with second going to Czech Adam Kout while another Victorian Club member

Brit Liam Morley was third.

Here are some of the viewer comments:

Wow those things are fast...Great footage man...Love those dual carbs. 

Great footage, You guys are hardcore racers. All respect to you. I think Superkarts are the heaviest form of racing. Even more so then F1's. 

Bass rocks!!
It's scary just watching it - great footage.
Yep those carbies add to the effect.
Keep up the good work guys
