Three races took place on the day with Thomas Cardno, Ollie Bayani and Mike Seabourne all claiming race wins.

In race one, Cardno took pole position which enabled him to grab an early lead.

Steve Bearcroft charged up the grid early on as he moved from fifth on the grid to second place.

A late incident saw James Arthur lose control and take out Jeremy Woodward as he picked up a penalty for his troubles.

There was no stopping Cardno however as he led from start to finish with Bearcroft coming home second and Woodward third.

 

Bayani made a great start to his Swindon Karting Open Series campaign, winning from start to finish in race two

Having earlier secured pole position, Bayani raced away from the pack leaving the rest to fight it out for second place.

Rob Lowe, originally third on the grid, moved up to second on turn one.

Four drivers then fought it out for second place with Lowe holding off Stephen Islip, who had earlier made a great move on Paul West.

While Bayani took the chequered flag, the latter stages saw Lowe and Islip battle hard for second with the former just holding on by 0.2 of a second.

A flawless performance from Mike Seabourne saw him win race three of the Swindon Karting Open Series on Saturday.

Having qualified on pole position, Seabourne soon secured a comfortable lead from the chasing pack.

Meanwhile Andy Fryer, Sam Slater and Robin Kassam were all embroiled in a fierce early battle for second place.

Slater however soon pulled away in second place, leaving Fryer and Kassam to battle it out for third.

Fryer eventually held off Kassam to take third while Seabourne also secured the fastest lap and took the lap record in a time of 27.944 seconds.
