CIRENCESTER'S Louis Wall took the positives from a mixed weekend of racing as the Superkart Championship resumed on Anglesey.

Wall, competing in both the 125cc and 250cc events which converged in North Wales, suffered a nasty accident in one race and failed to finish in another thanks to an ignition switch failure.

But the 25-year-old was pleased with the way he performed in wet qualifying conditions and returned home with plenty of useful data and thoughts on how to approach the next round of the 125cc championship, at Rockingham on August 9/10, and the forthcoming 250cc event at Cadwell on August 30/31 which also acts as the British Grand Prix.

Wall, who is sponsored by KwikFit’s Cirencester branch, the Mansell Collection and the UK Youth charity, placed seventh in his second 250cc race, and sixth in his second 125cc event.

He said; "I was very happy with the way we went in qualifying. The accident in the first 250cc race was just one of those things, I spun out trying an overtaking move and was then hit by another driver, and the best I can say is that it could have been worse.

"In the 125, we were closing in on fourth when the switch went and I had to retire which was frustrating, though the weekend ended well with two encouraging drives."
