Rotax 125cc
The 125cc Rotax Light class was hotly contested all year with 2015 Class runner up Carmelo Bonaventure hoping to go one better, but veteran Peter Nuske wasn’t going to let him have it all his own way . These two were never separated by more than a few karts lengths all season and when Michael Gagie joined them after the first two rounds, he got straight on to the pace and mixed it up with them, creating some brilliant racing and they drafted 3 wide to the line on many occasions. Peter Nuske took the top spot from Carmelo Bonaventure with new comer Michael Gagie rounding out the podium in third place. Peter Nuske also took our Club Champion.
The 125cc Rotax Heavy class was a little light (pardon the pun) for competitors this year but that didn’t stop them mixing it up with the Lighter guys. Nicholas Marshall was the top dog in this class from Richard Murtagh and Brandon Stillwell, a ring in from South Australia, in third.

motorsportzone 2016 series
250 International
With only 1 entry, Taylor Bertram should have been raking in the points with the good consistency he had at the last meeting. Unfortunately the F1 Honda RS250 was determined to self harm all weekend with 1 race finish for the weekend. It was just enough to get a small lead in the championship however.
1st: Taylor Bertram (F1 / HONDA)

250 National
The Gas Gas duo of the Crisp brothers showed they were ready for the onslaught from Dan Lewis returning with his revamped Anderson YZ Yamaha. But not all went to plan for Team AGL. Lachlan still enjoys a faultless run while Gareth had a small incident demolishing his nosecone in the process. Lewis won 2 out of the 5 races with a small electrical issue hampered his performance in race 4 and 5. The battle for 250 National supremacy continues November 12 - 13 at Queensland Raceway. Will also be the return of the third member of Team AGL, Adam Ferguson, with his new Gas Gas powerplant.
1st: Lachlan Crisp (STOCKMAN / GAS GAS)
2nd: Dan Lewis (Anderson/ Yamaha)
3rd: Gareth Crisp (ADE / GAS GAS)

125cc Gearbox
With Silcock absent from this event, Sam McFerran, Lindsay Jamieson and Jon Bothamley halled in the points. McFerran winning 5 from 5 raced but faced stiff competition from Lindsay Jamieson and Jon Bothamley. The Pavesi engine of Bothamley is showing signs it will be a serious contender for the championship in 2017.
1st: Sam McFerran (BRM /HONDA)
2nd:Jon Bothamley (F1 / Pavesi)
3rd: Lindsay Jamieson (STOCKMAN/ Honda)

Vale Luke Spalding

It comes with great sadness to announce that Luke Spalding has lost his fight with cancer today. Luke joined the Queensland Superkart Club Inc at the age of 15 only a few years ago in a 125cc Gearbox Superkart after just getting over the fight with Cancer the first time. He was a fast and clean driver and other competitors had nothing but praise for him. It was easy to tell early on that he was a talented driver.

2016 QSC INC MOTORSPORT ZONE SUPERKART SERIES POINTS AFTER ROUND 4

motorsportzone 2016 series
250 International
A field of 4 250 twins with Russell Jamieson setting some blistering lap times, even going close to the lap record. Taylor Bertram is now finding good consistency in the F1 Honda RS250. Was great to see Brian Wild return for his first event in 2016.
1st: Russell Jamieson (ANDERSON / DEA)
2nd: Taylor Bertram (F1 / HONDA)
3rd: Michael Nicholas (STOCKMAN / YAMAHA)

250 National
The Gas Gas trio of Weier and the Crisp brothers showed the way all weekend. Every race was virtually a drag race to the line every time. All 3 went very close to the lap record during the weekend. Weier in heat 5 had an incident in turn 2. Good to see he is ok, cant say the same for his Superkart however. The next round will be interesting with Dan Lewis returning with his revamped Anderson YZ Yamaha ready to challenge trio at Lakeside Park September 10 - 11.
1st: Tim Weier (ANDERSON / GAS GAS)
2nd: Lachlan Crisp (STOCKMAN / GAS GAS)
3rd: Gareth Crisp (ADE / GAS GAS)

125cc Gearbox
Where did Phil Silcocks reliability go? 3 DNF's in a single weekend has hurt his Motorsport Zone Superkart Series points lead. Lindsay Jamieson, Jon Bothamley and Sam McFerran wasted no time and swooped while Silcock was having an off weekend. At times, you could throw a blanket over the podium positions in each race.
1st: Sam McFerran (BRM /HONDA)
2nd: Lindsay Jamieson (STOCKMAN/ Honda)
3rd: Jon Bothamley (F1 / Pavesi)
