Apps and Hopcraft dominate at Honda O Plate

Super One Rotax SeriesMyles Apps continued his winning ways at Buckmore Parks 40th Anniversary meeting last weekend by picking up the ABkC Honda O Plate on his Zip Lightning kart.  Apps dominated the weekend and was the fastest in all conditions. He started the main final from the front row and quickly moved into the lead and took the win by a significant margin becoming the 2013 ABkC O Plate Champion.   Apps felt his knowledge of Buckmore Park had helped him in the terrible conditions saying “I know the track here well  and the new kart was fantastic all weekend.   I just knew that if I wanted to win, I had to hit the front ASAP due to the spray from the wet track. I am really pleased to have won the O Plate and especially here at Buckmores 50th Anniversary meeting with such a strong grid of quality drivers.

Matthew Hopcraft also enjoyed a good weekend on his Zip Honda with David Bellchamber’s  Next-Gen team. David commented “Matthew probably should have finished second in the main final but I think that Hudson just caught him out halfway through the main final.  Huddson held his line well until the end  and there was nothing they could do about Apps who was too far ahead.  Matthew has driven really well and I’m really pleased with his performances and results since joining us on his Zip kart this year”. Matthew collected 3rd place in the final  meaning that Zip Kart had taken 1st and 3rd on the podium and continuing their great run of results.
