125 Rotax Light

1st Peter Nuske

2nd Leighton Cook

3rd Ben Longland

4th Amber Bothamley

5th Jeff Cook

 

Was great to see Jeff Cook back on track after passing a medical on Thursday and he had a blast all weekend dicing with Amber Bothamley.

Ben Longland was back after some time off and a less than impressive Round 1 he had the kart dialled in and was threatening to shake up the established order of Peter and Leighton. Unfortunately a DNF where he spat the chain running over a rumble strip while dicing with Leighton saw him end up 3rd overall for the day. Peter was once again the class of the field.

 

125 Rotax Heavy

1st Glenn Wiggins

Unfortunately a lone warrior this weekend with his usual compatriot David Dyson away in Bundy with his endurance kart team.

Glenn had a great weekend mixing it with the Lights and improving all weekend watch out David at Round 3 

 

125 National

1st Greg Hack

2nd Kyle Schroeder

3rd Jon Bothamley

4th Liam Hoy

5th Ross Frazer

 

This class had a bit of everything, engine dramas, great racing and a lot of banter exchanged!  Liam Hoy after his Round 1 win was looking to cement a solid result and extend his lead in the championship but it all came unstuck in Race 3 when the engine let go

 

Jon Bothamley started Race 1 strong before his ignition packed up handing the win to Greg who was showing impressive speed for his first race meeting. Greg would continue on that form picking up the win in Race 2 and 4.

Kyle showed you have to be in it to win it. Despite suffering some fuel surge issues hampering ultimate pace he finished every race and picked up second overall. Now to get those issues sorted and see what he can really do behind the wheel 

250 National

1st Tim Weier

1st Russell Jamieson

Only 10 days after returning from the Bend in SA the Jamieson boys were working flat out to get ready after some engine dramas ended their weekend at the Bend.

With no competition they worked on chassis handling and engine setup.
