Karts in ac­tion for round two of club champs

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

THE kart­ing con­tin­gent of the Whit­sun­day Moto Sports Club (WMSC) will be host­ing round two of the club cham­pi­onships at the Whit­sun­day Race­way this weekend.

The two-day event at­tracts some of the very best kart driv­ers from Rock­hamp­ton to Townsville, with beginners right up to the very best vet­er­ans of the sport chas­ing a podium fin­ish.

WMSC pres­i­dent Adam Stroud said round one of the cham­pi­onships was can­celled as a re­sult of wet weather last month.

“All driv­ers are re­ally look­ing for­ward to get­ting back on the track and it should be a great day of rac­ing,” he said.

All driv­ers are wel­come to test their skills on the cus­tom built rac­ing track dur­ing a prac­tice ses­sion on Satur­day from 12-4pm.

Gates will open at 7am with rac­ing to kick off at 10am on Sun­day, and re­sults will be recorded across all classes.

The can­teen will be open and spec­ta­tors are en­cour­aged to make the most of track­side seat­ing to catch a glimpse of all the fast-paced kart­ing ac­tion.

All spec­ta­tors are wel­come to meet and greet with the kart driv­ers on the day but must wear cov­ered shoes to en­ter the pit area. “New mem­bers are al­ways wel­come at our club events and it’s a great op­por­tu­nity for them to meet other driv­ers and learn more about the sport,” Stroud said.

The Whit­sun­day Moto Sports Club will be host­ing the Shake­down Great Bar­rier Reef Ti­tles at the race­way from June 7-8.
