Karting titles give beginners a chance to tear up raceway
THE Queensland C and Dgrade karting titles will race into the Whitsunday Raceway this weekend.
After an unofficial practice on Friday, racing will run all day Saturday and Sunday.
Whitsunday Motosports karting president Stacey Hadlow expects up to 60 people to attend, with competitors from as far afield as Emerald.
“Obviously people are travelling, which says something about the club and track,” he said.
These titles are strictly limited to karters with a C or D licence and Mr Hadlow said this was an opportunity for those who didn’t compete often “to race in an environment without the pro’s”.
A beginner karter receives a D-grade licence and has to wear P-plates until they complete four successful meetings, as approved by the clerk.
They are then upgraded to a C-grade licence.
The C and D-Grade Titles will host races for all ages from cadet 9s (aged seven to nine years) and juniors through to seniors.
For information on Friday’s unofficial practice, phone Stacey Hadlow on 0427 678 572.
Races are free to watch.
