IT was all-out action at last Sunday's Jamaica Karting Association's fourth meet held at the Palisadoes Raceway in Kingston.

With an increase in the number of entrants over the last event, spectators witnessed several battles across the various classes.

Zander Williams stamped his authority in the Comer 50 class (baby karts) taking both race finals. In the second final, Williams stood back and watched his rivals Mark Moodie and Thomas Gore jostle for first place. However, when Gore and Moodie made contact, he cruised to the checkered flag. Moodie recovered to finish second.

In the final Rotax MiniMax race of the day, it was Marc Anthony Eaton who spent his time trying to fend off Justin Sirgany's challenge. They were glued nose to tail until Sirgany broke Eaton's defence performing a brilliant pass on the back straight hairpin. It remained that way to the finish line, with Eaton consoled by his win earlier in the day.

In the Rotax Juniors, William Myers, Jonathon Law and Frazer McConnell were a train of speed each time they took to the track. Myers was able to win both finals as Law and McConnell bumped, bashed and pushed, trying to gain any advantage over the other. In the Senior class, it was the electrifying driving of Colin Daley Jr, hounded by Phillip Myers, that ended in a win each across the two class final races.

"The track was a bit loose," said Daley Jr after his race win. "But I found some speed after the team changed engines during the lunch break."

Myers, who now leads the class by half a point, had nothing but praise for his rival during his impromptu podium speech.

"I want to thank Colin for an excellent race," he said.
