Kart days are fin­ish­ing up for the year

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

KARTERS from the Whit­sun­days, Mackay and Toowoomba kart­ing clubs hit the Whit­sun­day Race­way on Sun­day for one of the club’s fi­nal kart days for the year.

Although the weather was quite mis­er­able Sun­day, the sun even­tu­ally made its way out for op­ti­mum rac­ing weather.

Whit­sun­day Mo­to­sports Club kart pres­i­dent Adam Stroud said the kart day was filled with qual­ity lo­cal rac­ers.

“Best per­form­ing lo­cal was Max Deguara in the cadets with Lara Had­low and brothers Louie and Ben Archer show­ing some very strong im­prove­ments and well on pace now,” he said.

There was plenty of ac­tion in the Sports­man Heavy with Leo Ro­driguez floor­ing each round. The Whit­sun­day Mo­to­sports Club will host two more kart days, one on Novem­ber 9 and the other on Novem­ber 30, to round out the year.

At the next kart day dou­ble points will be of­fered to the club cham­pi­onships which could go to any of the four driv­ers in the se­nior di­vi­sion.

The Whit­sun­day Mo­to­sports Club is still on the look out for vol­un­teers to as­sist with meet­ings and race days.

Any­one who is in­ter­ested in the sport can con­tact kart trea­surer Tracey Stroud at trea­surer@wmsc.org.au or via the Face­book page at www.face­book.com/wm­sck.
