Banburyshire drivers enjoyed wins in three categories at Sunday’s kart meeting at Shenington.

André Marot led from start to finish in TKM Clubman defending from compatriot Eddie Mawle initially until the Banbury driver was pipped by Graham Stewart.

That was enough to take the pressure off Marot for the Shenington driver’s run to the chequer flag.

Edgehill’s Scott Allen had an outing in KZ UK, the 125cc six-speed gearbox class, and enjoyed a lights to flag victory which was punctuated by an all course yellow flag.

Despite the bunching up Allen was able to pull out a lead once more at the restart, chased by Adam Glear, Dan Kelly and Matt Sherwen. Hannah Lang had been a strong third prior to the race equalisation but fell to ninth.

Ross Allen was not so lucky in the 250 National ABkC Championships.

The Edgehill driver was chasing down leader Lee Stamp when his kart developed a mechanical problem forcing retirement. Allen had already suffered a retirement in a heat when his engine seized but had fought back to second in the final before experiencing the problem.

In Junior TKM, Daventry’s Joshua Sherriff prevailed over Zak Bowen and Joe Taylor despite multiple challenges and a few lead changes.

Banbury’s William Layton was an excellent fourth but Over Norton driver James Pashley clattered over the kerbs in the chicane and lost places to 11th.
