Nine fine at Nats

Go-Kart Racing, Greg Moore Raceway

The Pacific Coast Mini Road Racing Club hosted a Canadian National Event at Chilliwack’s Greg Moore Raceway last weekend, drawing top drivers from across the country.

Chilliwack’s Jake Hayes, just nine years old, finished first in the youth 7-10 division to earn his first National title.

Mom (Joldie), dad Norm and racing coach Scott Borthwick  (from Inside Racing School) had no idea how Hayes would measure up against some of the most talented kids in the country.

They got their answer when he set a new track record in his first race on Saturday, clocking a lightning quick one minute, 16.4 seconds.

Hayes was nearly as good on day two, combining his times to finish second in the intermediate class.

He raced and finished ahead of several adult riders, leading the track announcer to scream, ‘Somebody tell this kid he is only nine years old!’
