Richard Gittings the owner of JDR Karting in Gloucester wins the 2016 Monoposto Championship in his 1000cc Suzuki powered Jedi. Richard finished on the podium every race this season with 9 wins, 1 second and 1 third place. Richard also achieved 9 fastest laps and 4 lap records at Cadwell Park, Brands Hatch GP,  Oulton Park Fosters & Snetterton 300.

Richard’s finest race was at Brands Hatch GP having had a mechanical issue in qualifying resulting in 18th and 30th on the grid, but managed to charge through the field and take a win on the last corner with just 0.2s separating the top 3 cars and in the second race a fine 2nd place. Team mate Craig Hurran from Cheltenham in his JDR Karting Sponsored Jedi which is an identical car finished a fine second in the championship. Well done team JDR Karting!
