Tyler Chesterton took a clean sweep of final victories at round seven of the Super One British Karting Championships in Junior Rotax. Samuel White took a podium with 3rd in Junior X30 as well.

Glan-Y-Gors Park in Corwen, Wales hosted the seventh round of the Super One British Karting Championships.

Tom Adams qualified 3rd on the grid in Minimax Timed Qualifying, before going on to take a 6th and 7th place finish in his two heats - giving himself 7th on the grid for the first of the two finals.

Adams made good progress to vault himself up into the podium places, setting the fastest lap in the process to get within 1.4s of the leader.

The Final, going off 3rd on the grid saw Adams chase the leaders throughout the race - ultimately despite once again taking the honours for fastest lap, he had to settle for 3rd on the podium at the chequered flag.

Tyler Chesterton qualified 4th on the grid in Junior Rotax, with teammates Henry Stennett 7th on the grid and Ben Burgess 13th. Chesterton went on to take a win and a 3rd in his two heats, giving him 2nd on the grid for the first of the finals.
Stennett took 6th in his first heat, before a nosecone penalty in his second heat resulted in a 19th place finish - meaning he would line up 13th for the Pre-Final.
Burgess would line up 12th for the Pre-Final after taking 10th and 14th in his two heats.

Chesterton went on to take a hard faught win in the Pre-Final, after taking the lead with three laps to go and holding it until the end. Burgess gained two positions to come home in 10th position and Stennett finished in 12th position.

The Grand Final saw Chesterton double up on final victories, taking a lights to flag victory after never being headed throughout the 18 lap final - claiming victory once again in Junior Rotax. Burgess and Stennett endured battling races, taking the finish line in 11th and 14th positions respectively.

Samuel White set the 2nd fastest time in Junior X30 timed qualifying, with teammate Matthew Hudson taking 24th. White went on to take two 2nd positions in his heats to line up 3rd on the grid for the first of the finals. Hudson made it into the top 20 on the grid after taking 10th and 12th in his two heats.

The Pre-Final saw White battle for the win throughout the race, remaining 3rd throughout and holding onto his strong position at the chequered flag. Hudson crossed the line in 19th position, gaining a place from his starting berth.

White put on an almost identical performance in the Final, in contention for victory throughout the entire race, however an opening for victory never materialised around the notoriously difficult circuit to overtake on - as he took 3rd place on the podium at the end of the race. Hudson was the victim of a collision from another driver making a failed overtaking manoeuvre, dropping the Coles racer to the rear of the field and not allowing him to get the result his pace deserved.

Coles Racing came away with a trio of podium finishes at Glan-Y-Gors, after great performances by Sam White, Tom Adams and Tyler Chesterton, the latter strengthening his hold on the Junior Rotax British Championship lead.

The next race takes place at the annual MSA Kartmasters Grand Prix, hosted by PF International on the 4-6 August. The winner of each class gets to run the coveted GP Plate for the next season. Coles Racing will be entering Rotax and X30 classes for the prestigious event.
