Tablelands Advertiser - - SPORT - Bec Singh

MO­TOR­SPORTS fans will have the chance to im­i­tate pro­fes­sional driv­ers with the For­mula Vee rac­ing day at the Ma­reeba Mako­trac In­ter­na­tional Race­track, to­mor­row.

The 1200cc and 1600cc cars will be in ac­tion on the track at 52 Springs Rd Ma­reeba, al­low­ing rac­ers to feel the same thrill as For­mula 1 pro­fes­sional driv­ers.

For­mula Vee event or­gan­iser To­bia Kip­per said the 10 spots avail­able were al­most filled and hope­fully there would be some great rac­ing for spec­ta­tors.

“The spots filled up so quickly, we have had eight driv­ers con­firm and if peo­ple are in­ter­ested they’d bet­ter get in quick,” he said.

Driv­ers will be re­quired to at­tend the track at 10am for a the­ory ses­sion, fol­lowed by a short prac­tice run be­fore rac­ing starts.

Mr Kip­per said the to­tal price to race would be $250 per per­son and there were spe­cific height and weight re­quire­ments.

“The min­i­mum height is 165cm, max­i­mum is 190cm and max­i­mum weight is 120 kg,” he said.

Rac­ers will need a valid GoKart Ac­tion li­cence. Enquires call 4092 5788.
