Hodgson dominates OK at Kartmasters
For the first time at KMGP, the latest offering from the CIK saw the OK (Vortex) class in operation. While the grid numbers were disappointing, those taking part and support from Strawberry Racing made it a very exciting debut at the event.
Fast or what!! A new outright circuit lap record for Dean Macdonald – 54.99s, and for sure it was the speed of the karts which impressed. We were also privileged to have CIK European winner at Genk the previous week with us, Clement Novalak, to add spice. The race was a three-way affair with PF expert Oliver Hodgson showing the way to Novalak and Macdonald but there wasn’t a lot in it.
A bit of an anti-climax as Hodgson was in total command – Lights to flag in style gave him the first OK GP title. As with the Prefinal, Novalak and Macdonald followed home in 2nd and 3rd, while Luke Knott had a strong drive to finish 4th.
OK will appear again at PFi for the last round of the British Championship in September.
