Heat 1
In heat 1 the finishing placings were unusual in that they finished exactly as they started with every driver in the 7 kart field remaining in their starting position, Glenn Riddell taking the win from Steven Riddell and Phil Smith 3rd.

Heat 2
After a close battle early on Glenn Riddell was able to get clear of the field crossing the line 2.3 seconds ahead of Steven Riddell who had a great scrap passing each other multiple times in the final stages.
