Com­mu­nity and club mem­bers at­tended the Hed­land Kart Club awards night last month in Port Hed­land.

Over the years, many suc­cess­ful State-level rac­ers who have been in State cham­pi­onships have called the Hed­land Kart Club home.

The club re­lies solely on the sup­port of club mem­bers and the wider com­mu­nity.

The night recog­nised the most out­stand­ing com­peti­tors in all dis­ci­plines and the vol­un­teers who ded­i­cated their time and ef­fort to­wards the sport.

Many ju­niors were recog­nised, with the Grey fam­ily show­ing their tal­ent across all ju­nior di­vi­sions.

Con­ner Grey was ju­nior KA4 cham­pion, Ri­ley Grey was Cadet 9 cham­pion and Tris­ten Grey was Cadet 12 cham­pion. Scott Allen was named 2018 Club Cham­pion for his hard work and de­vo­tion through­out the year.

Club pres­i­dent Shan­non Brown was first in Tag125 com­bined, fol­lowed by Joel Kay.

Brown said the club was start­ing to build up strength in the town, and was see­ing some con­sis­tency in mem­bers early in the year.

“Early in the year, we had re­ally good num­bers but other com­mit­ments can make a big drop and we want to have more peo­ple come down,” he said.

“In the new year, we will host a ‘have a try night’ for the growth of our club.”

Next year will be a huge mile­stone for the club, as mem­bers cel­e­brate 50 years of es­tab­lish­ment.
