There’s still plenty to play for at the final round of this year’s Hampton Downs Top Half Series at Tokoroa on Sunday.
‘That’s right,” says series promotor Roger Smith. “There is still a total of around $25,000 in cash, trophies, spot and random draw prizes up for grabs with $9,250 of that in cash alone. Plus no one driver has been dominant this year in any of our classes so everyone has a chance to improve on their placings at the final round.
“Just one point separates current points leader Ashton Grant and current runner-up Braeden Snowden in Urban Performance 125cc Rotax Max Light. Then there are only two points between current leader Riley Boswell and runner-up Maxim Kirwin in International Kart Supplies Cadet ROK, and only three between Celeb Hartley and Aaron Cunningham in TCB Motorsport Rotax Max Heavy.
“Most classes are still close throughout their fields as well so I expect strong battles from the front to the back in all our classes.”
