Pilbara News - - Sport - Louise Alling­ham

Aus­tralian cham­pion kart racer Dave Sera will join Kar­ratha Kart Club this Satur­day for their first club run of the year.

Sera will also be run­ning driver-skills train­ing ses­sions to Kar­ratha Kart Club’s pro-cadets, ju­niors and se­niors through­out the week­end.

Sera is Aus­tralia’s lead­ing kart racer with 18 Aus­tralian cham­pi­onships and 56 State cham­pi­onships un­der his belt.

He has more than 20 years of ex­pe­ri­ence and raced in places all over the world in­clud­ing Las Ve­gas, New Zealand, Ja­pan and the United Arab Emi­rates.

Keen karters who missed out on Sera’s train­ing ses­sions are in­vited to the run on Fe­bru­ary 18 at the club on An­der­son Road in the Kar­ratha LIA.

En­try is free, gates open at 5pm and food and drinks will be avail­able from the can­teen at 6pm.

There will be eight classes run­ning for cadets, ju­niors and se­niors and an op­por­tu­nity to meet the driv­ers and get some in­for­ma­tion on karting. Mem­bers and non­mem­bers are wel­come to come down to the club on Fri­day and Satur­day nights to watch the driv­ers and Sera whip around the track.

Kar­ratha Kart Club pres­i­dent Shan­non Drew said the club looked set for a big year with huge in­ter­est so far and 15 new mem­bers join­ing the club for 2017.

There is plenty go­ing on at the club in 2017 in­clud­ing monthly club runs and round 1 of the North­ern Cham­pi­onships in March.

Head to kar­rathakart­ for more in­for­ma­tion.
