THE Lismore Kart Club is reaching the business end of the season with 56 drivers turning out for its race meeting on Sunday.

The Cadet 9 class (7-9 years), better known as "pocket rockets", saw a good field of 12 face the starter.

Racing was close but at the end it was Kayden Thompson who took first place, with Braith Santin second and brother Jake Santin in third.

In the Cadet 12 class (9-12 years), a field of 11 young racers made up a very competitive group. The win went to Kye Suffolk, with Drew Bidner in second and young female driver Alice Buckley in third.

In the Junior KA4 class it was well represented with six entries. Sam Seccombe took first place from Jack Porter while Beau Batchelor finished third.

In the Junior KA3 class, there was only two competitors so they were run in conjunction with the KA4. Thomas Gallagher took the win from Jacob Lesha.

In the KA4 Senior group (A and B), racing was close among the 11 competitors.

Jordan Kingham won, with Dmitri Nommensen in second and Ryan Newell third.

This group is divided into two and in group B, Jessica Matthews came first, Ian Neil second and Dean Nommensen third.

The TAG 125 Restricted Light Class had seven competitors face the starter, with William Seccombe finishing ahead of Cameron McPherson and Matthew Neill.

There were five racers turn out in the TAG 125 Restricted Medium and the racing was intense, with Jason Routley taking a well-earned win from Elwyn Garrard who came second but kept Routley on his toes. Joshua Dagg came in third.

TAG 125 Restricted Heavy had two entries and they were combined with the TAG Light class. Jason Hardy took the win from Matt Bidner.

The final meeting for the season will be on December 3 and includes both racing and some featured classes followed by the presentation of club champions awards.

The club will then be in recess, with the first meeting scheduled for 2018 being held on February 11.
