By Ali Gordon

The annual Irish Kart Grand Prix took place at Nutts Corner Race Circuit last Saturday with a host of thrilling races entertaining the crowd.

In the ever competitive Senior Max class, Jack Lyons of Kiltale took the victory and claimed the prestigious GP Plate after a great drive in the final.

Daniel Conlon brilliantly climbed from seventh to finish second and Derek Wilson from Portadown came home in third.

Philip Patton clinched the coveted GP Plate in the Cadet class after an altercation on the last lap of the race between Sé Óg Martin and Killian Brady saw both drivers come together.

With Martin spinning off and unable to finish and Brady being disqualified, Patton was promoted to take victory, ahead of Cian Caldwell and Nathan Glenn.

In the World Formula class, Neville Bell took victory in impressive style, which saw him clinch the GP Plate ahead of Robert Devenney. Michael Shaw followed in third.

Daniel Harper claimed the win in the Mini Max class, with Jack McGaughey in second ahead of Jack Steenson in third.

Richie Faulkner won the KZ2 class with Shane Crosbie and Nathan Coss following him home.

In the 125cc Superkart class, Matthew McGaffin got the win with Noel Brennan in second and Conor McCormack in third.

Matthew Campbell took home the victory and the GP plate in the 250cc Superkart class ahead of 2013 NI Champion Liam Fox in second and Colin Menary in third.

The next Kart meeting takes place this Saturday at the North West 200 Paddock Circuit.
