2018 Bala Challenge - Go Karting Championship

Sunday, 2 September saw 12 teams from Masonic Lodges across North Wales gather to compete in the 2018 Bala Challenge at the international standard Go Karting track at Glan Y Gors, Cerrigydrudian.

The festivities began with participants embarking on a series of qualifying laps, which allowed drivers to become acclimatised to the track.

Near perfect weather conditions made the track ideal for some very fast lap times and, throughout the race, spectators and resting drivers eagerly cheered on their teammates.

After an intense 90 minutes of racing, the results were in!

  • 1st place: St Catherine Lodge
  • 2nd place: The Three Amigos (Ruthin)
  • 3rd place: Bala Lodge

The fastest over-all lap, coming close to the circuit record, was set by Chris James driving for St Catherine Lodge.

Thanks go to Mark Bennett of the Bala Lodge & Square & Compass Lodge who organised the event and raised £500 for local charities through the sale of raffle tickets on the day.
