Young karter’s eyes on future
COMING off a fourth place win in the Jmax catergoy at the Young Guns karting competition in Lismore last month, Kelsey Creek karter Nathan Hadlow has got his eyes on the big prize.
His father, Stacey Hadlow, said Nathan’s kart speed had certainly improved in the lead-up to the final placing of 16th out of 32 in the qualifiying heat.
This had led eventually to taking out fourth place in the finals.
Nathan races as part of the Project X team.
Next on the radar is the Pro Tour in Warwick this June so Nathan is travelling southwest this weekend to try out at a club day at the Warwick raceway.
At just 13-years-old and with ever-supportive parents, Nathan nurses every boy’s dream – to make it the V8 Supercars.
He is blessed to have parents willing to give him every opportunity, travelling extensively towards making his dream become a reality.
The Pro Tour enables karters to experience karting at the highest level and will en- sure that Nathan gets some very valuable experience in such quality fields.
The significance of this event for young karters is the hope that if you end up in the top three after all rounds are completed, you will ensure a place for yourself in the World Titles.
After the Warwick round further rounds are to be held at Eastern Creek in Sydney, Puckapunyal in Victoria and then the final at Ipswich in Queensland.
Nathan hopes to take state or national titles.
In other news, the Whitsunday Motosports are looking forward to playing host to the 2015 Queensland C and D Grade Titles on the weekend of May 22 and 23.
