Lanz who is no stranger to the Kartdrome, although she campaigns mainly in South Africa and Europe, was untouchable on the day in the Senior Max category as she qualified in pole position and then proceeded to win the heat race, the pre-final before romping home to win the final.

Next best and chasing hard was Piers Pakenham-Walsh who was runner-up each time to Lanz. Phillipe Valenza was third in the final. As for the DAMC Max Seniors championship, consistency paid off as Ammar Rayess walked off with the champion’s trophy having scored in every round.

In the Max Masters it was a three-way battle, all day, between Jonathan Mowatt, Walid Al Qassemi and Paul Walsh. There was little to separate the trio and in the end it was Mowatt who took top honours in the final after winning the pre-final.

Qassemi, qualified in pole position and went on to win the heat race but had to settle for second in the final. Walsh was third. The result was enough for Qassemi to be awarded the 2011/2012 DAMC Masters champion’s trophy.
