YLN Members take part in Mini Kart Grand Prix

Last night, 27 Seniors and Leaders from 5 Companies took part in a YLN Mini Kart Grand Prix at Xtreme Karting, Newbridge; in what is becoming a much-anticipated annual event. 

Participants were welcomed, kitted up and shown a safety video.  They were then split into 3 groups for 2 x 10 lap heats, which determined what final they started in. 

Everyone drove well and there was some good close racing.  Well done to everyone who took part. 

Lewis Houliston, 51st Bonnyrigg emerged as the winner of Final A, picking up a gold medal.  FraserLyall finished second with Stewart Rowney third.  Michael Clarke had the fastest lap of the mini grand prix with a time of 28.472 seconds.  

A special mention must go to the Leaders who elected to start from the back of the grid in their heats and chose to race in Final C.

Thanks must go to David Clarke for organising the event and to all the Leaders who encouraged their Seniors and Young Leaders to take part.

The event was supported by a Cashback for Communities Small Grant. 

If you have an idea(s) for future YLN events; please speak to Sean Campbell, YLN Co-ordinator or contact the Battalion Office.
