Recently returned from the Coach Design teams European assault, Chryss Jamieson dusted off the oldest of the teams 250 International chassis, the powder blue Anderson Mirage-Honda. "Jammo" displayed a clean pair of heels to the opposition at round two of the CAMS Queensland Superkart Championship at Morgan Park Raceway over the 31 August/1 September weekend.
Jamieson won all three races, lapping consistently two-three seconds a lap faster than the field. The first race of the weekend saw Steve Cloake pull clear of Joe Tyrrell in the battle for second as Tyrrell struggled with a persistent ignition problem in the Racetech Anderson-Honda. In the second race Tyrrell fell out of the top order as the ignition fix did not work. He limped around to finish a distant seventh while Cloake finished second. With everything fixed in race three Tyrrell dropped four seconds from his lap time and pulled steadily clear of Cloake to claim second place, despite a broken engine mount distracting his attention for half of the final race.
Behind the 250 cc karts at the front of the field there was a pattern. Phil Silcock had the starts perfected in the Rockpress Stockman-Honda. Each race he would be able to jump one grid row on the run to the first corner, in Race 2 was briefly into second place. As the races went on Rob Aston, driving the Bluff Racing Stockman-Yamaha instead of his usual CRG Maximo was able to gradually reel in Silcock and pass him for fourth or third place in the back half of the races to win the 125 cc class for the weekend.
Behind them was a similar battle between Lindsay Jamieson and Chris Aston. Lindsay was driving one of the 80 cc Gladiators, specifically Drene's usual pink and white kart, instead of the 125 cc Stockman. Chris Aston drove the Aston family CRG Maximo. The two would battle for sixth place (or fifth in race two when Tyrrell was in limp mode) all weekend. Lindsay won the battle, finishing seventh, fifth and sixth compared to Chris' sixth, sixth and seventh. Drene Jamieson hopped out of the pink Gladiator-Honda and into the red Gladiator-Yamaha that Stewart Bell usually drives to try and leave his mechanical issues behind, but the pink kart ran faultless and the red kart saw Drene again having a troubled plagued weekend ending with an engine failure.
Tyrrell has consolidated his lead in the state championship and is now 30 points clear of Rob Aston. Cloake is just six points behind Aston with Silcock now fourth but is just two points ahead of Chryss Jamieson who scored a perfect 94 points for the weekend.
In the Morgan Park club pointscore, Tyrrell is almost 700 points up on Cloake with Silcock a strong third.
