Cyclonic weather hinders karting series at raceway
THE Triple Crown karting series was cancelled at the Whitsunday Raceway on Sunday due to the strong winds and rain of Cyclone Ita but the event has been rescheduled for Sunday, May 11.
Whitsunday Moto Sports Club (WMSC) members were disappointed at the news but many have now set their sights on preparing for the club’s next race meet on Sunday, May 4.
Club president Adam Stroud said a practice event would be held on Saturday afternoon before all classes hit the track for a great day of racing on the Sunday.
“Seeing as the last three race meetings have been washed out I’m expecting a really good turnout for this one,” he said.
“Our local drivers and those from interstate are itching to get back on the track before the Queensland State Championships in July.”
This is the second year running the Triple Crown karting series has been cohosted by the WMSC, Townsville and Mackay karting clubs.
Under the new schedule, all kart drivers will be taking to the tarmac track in Mackay on Saturday, May 10 before making their way to the Whitsunday Raceway for the final round of the series on Sunday, May 11.
More than 60 kart drivers have entered the series and one lucky competitor who races in all three events as part of the series will win a new Deadly Kart from Dynamic Performance Engineering (DPE) and David Sera.
The kart will be the chassis of the win- ner’s choice and comes with a race suit and Dave Sera driver training classes.
In other exciting karting news, the WMSC will also playing host to the Great Barrier Titles on June 7-8 and the Queensland State Championships on July 10-12.
