Lo­cal driv­ers gear­ing up for Qld Closed State Ti­tles

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

MORE than 40 go-karters from the Whit­sun­days, Mackay and Townsville hit the track of the Whit­sun­day Race­way for round six of Whit­sun­day Moto Sports Club kart cham­pi­onships on Sun­day.

The sin­gle day event served as the per­fect warm up for the up­com­ing Queens­land Closed State Ti­tles which will be host- ed by the Whit­sun­day Moto Sports Club on Septem­ber 2829.

Be­gin­ners right up to the very best vet­er­ans of the sport showed their skill in per­fect rac­ing con­di­tions as they bat­tled for a podium fin­ish across all ju­nior and se­nior classes.

Club sec­re­tary Tracey Stroud said com­pe­ti­tion was fierce and the club was look­ing for­ward to host­ing the Queens­land Closed State Ti­tles later this month.

“We are ex­pect­ing 150 gokart driv­ers from across the state to at­tend the event which is open to all driv­ers hold­ing a Queens­land kart li­cence,” she said.

“It will be an ex­cit­ing week­end be­cause ev­ery nom­i­na­tion will go into the draw to win a Yamaha J mo­tor and some other great prizes.”

There will be two un­of­fi­cial prac­tice ses­sions held on Septem­ber 25-26, with the of­fi­cial prac­tice sched­uled for Fri­day, Septem­ber 27.

All spec­ta­tors are wel­come to join in on the ac­tion and make the most of the can­teen, bar and jumping cas­tle over the week­end.

HOT LAP: Whit­sun­day Moto Sports Club driver Dun­can Robb was on form at the Whit­sun­day Race­way, keep­ing ahead of Ter­rence Archer and Luke Jones in the Sports­man Heavy di­vi­sion on Sun­day.

FO­CUSED DRIV­ING: Kiara Lyons got her head down as she looked to ex­tend her lead over Co­hen Ogilvie and Huet De Froberville in the Ju­nior National Light di­vi­sion of the Whit­sun­day Moto Sports kart cham­pi­onships on Sun­day.
