There seems to be no stopping our young Ninja Karts star, Toby Partridge, as he continues to record excellent results on the ovals.

Soon after making an appearance at the recent Motorsports Show, he was in action at the Birmingham Wheels venue.

Following a fifth position in heat one, retirement loomed during his second outing.

This seemed only to spur him on when the all-important final arrived.

Looking for victory on the last lap, he was pipped on the line and had to settle for third place.

The following day saw the team at Swaffham, and once again it was to be another fifth-place finish in the opening heat.

Heat two saw an upturn in fortunes and a third place podium was the end result.

When it comes to overtaking, Toby seems to take in some amazing moves and this was evident in the final as he secured a well-deserved victory.

His consistent performances have reaped their reward, and next Sunday the Swaffham oval will play host to the East Anglian Championship race which will see Toby line up on the outside of the front row of the grid.

AUTOSOLO

The Anglia Motor Sport Club (AMSC) is an umbrella organisation covering a number of the region’s clubs.

It helps to see clubs working together and that is what happened at Wethersfield when Cambridge CC, Eastern Counties MC and Falcon MC combined to organise the second round of the AMSC Autosolo Challenge.

All cars ran over the same course, but those in the autosolo category must be road-going while the autotest section allows for cars to be brought to the meeting on a trailer.

The outright winners of both sections were the Cambridge CC duo Mark and John Peterson, Mark taking the top honours in the autosolo at the wheel of his class A2 Renault Clio while John again emerged on top of the Class D autotest category.

Looking at individual classes, West Suffolk MC drivers dominated Class A1 with Marcus Keeble’s Clio heading home the Mini of Laura Christmas, Vini Cruz’s Peugeot 106 and Duncan Christmas also in the Mini.

In Class A2, Hannah Ellis brought the Falken Tyres-backed Citroen AX GTi into third spot.

The local club also provided the top three in Class B.

All at the wheel of Mazda MX5s, Kevin Lockwood took victory followed by Kayne Lockwood and Paul Webb.

With Peterson taking overall honours, it was left to David Leckie’s Vauxhall Nova to secure Class D honours ahead of Dan Pearson - Ford Puma - and the MG Midget of Nick Barrett.

Class A1 sees Vini Cruz ahead of Marcus Keeble and Duncan Christmas while Hannah Ellis tops the list in Class A2.

David Leckie heads the list in Class D, with Dan Pearson in third spot.
