Crown on of­fer at lo­cal race­way

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING / SPORT -

THE Whit­sun­day Race­way will see some fierce com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day, play­ing host to round two of the Triple Crown kart­ing ti­tles.

Whit­sun­day Mo­to­sport Club kart­ing sec­re­tary Bob Thor­burn said the race field was al­ready look­ing healthy.

“So far we have 57 pre-nom­i­na­tions, and you can also nom­i­nate on the day, so we’ll have at least that many,” he said.

The first round of the com­pe­ti­tion was held in Townsville last fort­night, bring­ing in rac­ers from far and wide.

“There were peo­ple there from as far north as Cairns,” Mr Thor­burn said.

“So there’s a few of those guys com­ing down to this one.”

Mr Thor­burn said the ex­panded field would make for some in­ter­est­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

“So it’s go­ing to be ex­cit­ing to watch if peo­ple are in­ter­ested in get­ting into the sport,” he said.

Those want­ing to come and have a look are en­cour­aged to do so, with free ad­mis­sion.

Gates open at 7am with race en­tries cut­ting off at 9am.

Rac­ers can test their karts from 8am, fin­ish­ing at 9.30am for a 10am start to rac­ing.

Reg­is­tra­tion costs $60 for pre-en­tries and $70 on the day.

The fi­nal round of the triple crown will be held in Mackay on Sun­day, wrap­ping up the three part se­ries.
