Derek Wilson had a very impressive weekend at Nutts Corner in the third round of the NI Karting Championship.

The Portadown driver claimed a hat-trick of wins in the Senior Max class and also gained some valuable points on his title rivals.

Douglas Reid, from Ballynahinch, put in a solid drive in race two, taking victory ahead of Dollingstown driver Daniel Conlon in second and Alex Denning in third.

Both Reid and Conlon claimed another podium finish in race three with Denning the runner-up and Conor McPolin in third.

In the Honda Cadet class there were three different winners throughout the four races, with Max Allen from Lisburn claiming a brace of wins in race one and the final, with Shane O'Boyle and Peadar O'Boyle taking triumphing in races two and three. It was only Holywood's Jason Yates who was able to split this pack and make his way onto the podium, finishing second in race one.

It was a similar story in the IAME Cadet class with Dunloy driver Se Og Martin taking the chequered flag in both race one and the final, with Tom Edgar from Moneyrea taking the win in race two and Coleraine driver TJ McDonnell claiming victory in race three.

With the next round of the NI Championship taking place on May 30 at the Bishopscourt circuit, it will certainly be a day not to be missed.
