Young karter’s eyes on fu­ture

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

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.
