KARTING - ROBBIE Gallier wins again, it sounds so easy, if only it was the case. After the first round of the Dunkeswell championship held in February when Robbie finished second he was in need of a win to reinforce his championship chances.

ROBBIE Gallier wins again, it sounds so easy, if only it was the case. After the first round of the Dunkeswell championship held in February when Robbie finished second he was in need of a win to reinforce his championship chances.Everything looked to be going so well in the Saturday mornings free practice session as Robbie was the quickest Honda and even challenging the other classes. Then disaster struck as his number one race engine unusually developed a fault. This meant the spare engine had to be used in the afternoon only for this engine to be below par. The team swiftly contacted the engine supplier who met them in Salisbury to hand over the loan engine. With the new engine fitted for Sunday's heats and final, Robbie was back to form winning every heat in the Honda class and taking the final by a substantial margin and finishing third overall even against other classes more powerful than the Honda.This puts Robbie back in front in the Honda championship and much in contention for overall honours in the Devon tacks all cadet class championship.Robbie said a big thanks to Jeff Johnson for lending the engine and meeting up with Chris Hutchings and he commented: "The engine was great, it was so cool to win after the problems." Support continues from Demon Tweeks, Prokart Eng, South West Karting, PIAA, Talon and WSM Fasteners.
