The 2017 Daytona DMAX Championship headed to Daytona Sandown Park this weekend for round 2 – and the Surrey circuit hosted a day of extremely close, competitive racing.

Across all three weight classes in the endurance qualifying, the top 80% of the drivers were split by less than one second – a new record for the already amazingly close DMAX karts – and the lap times were even closer in the races – as newer drivers got used to the 900m tarmac circuit in Esher.

The cold, but dry conditions saw drivers right on the limit throughout the day, with over 140 entries for the second round of the exciting 2017 calendar.

With such close racing, the series saw a lot of changes to finishing positions from Round 1 – and the championship standings are the closest they have ever been after just two rounds – which augurs well for interesting battles developing up and down the Champs tables over the next eight rounds of the Championships.

The full race reports will be online on the Results Pages shortly but, in the meantime, Daytona would like to congratulate the podium finishers across all six champs classes:
