Underdog takes victory in 2016 IAME European Open

IAME European Open

Trent Valley Kart Club organised the inaugural IAME INTERNATIONAL OPEN last weekend at the World renowned PF International kart circuit in the UK.

Three classes took part – IAME Cadet, X30 Junior & X30 Senior –
providing a grid of each.

Despite mixed prior forecasts, the weather held for the race days and competitors enjoyed extended track time within the relaxed timetable. The racing built up into a spectacular set of Finals, all of which provided sensational races!

IAME X30 Senior, looked to be the property of Oliver Hodgson who dominated proceedings, even upto the last corner of the Final, but a sensational overtake by underdog Danny Keirle stole the show.

A stunning end to some brilliant racing! 1st Danny Keirle (Jade Karts/Gold) – winning the €3000 cash & IAME X30 World Final Ticket, 2nd Oliver Hodgson (PF International/Birel ART) – receiving €2000 cash & IAME X30 World Final Ticket, 3rd Tom Joyner (AMT/Zanardi) – awarded €1000 cash & IAME X30 World Final Ticket.

Just as the other two categories, the top 3 in X30 Senior also received entries to the forthcoming Kartmasters GP event, due to take place later this Summer.
