Speed bug bites young

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - VIC­TO­RIA NU­GENT

CHELSEA Ket­tles is just six years old but she’s al­ready pas­sion­ate about the Townsville 400.

The Kir­wan young­ster has been to the V8 Su­per­cars event ev­ery year since she was a baby and has firm ideas about which team is the best. “I like the Red Bull,” she said. It’s not just the rac­ing that grabs her at­ten­tion, with Cars char­ac­ter Light­ning McQueen a big draw­card, along with the more in­ter­ac­tive ac­tiv­i­ties.

Dad Shaun Ket­tles said the en­tire fam­ily loved com­ing to the Townsville 400 and it had been a high­light of the year since it first started.

“I’ve missed a few years be­cause of ros­ters but the wife usu­ally brings the kids,” he said.

Mr Ket­tles said he thought the event had im­proved over the years.

Mr Ket­tles was also joined by son Jakk, 12, and step­son Bray­don Moody, 15, both big V8s fans.
