The 85cc Class, Cameron Moxley showed a mix of speed and reliability to take the class win from Life time member Chryss Jamieson and new boy on the block Keith Taylor had some small issues which prevented him capitalising on his pole position

125cc Rotax Heavy- Nicholas Marshall may have been the only heavy on the weekend but that didn't stop him racing hard and showing some of the lighter guys how it's done.

125cc Rotax Light- These guys were at it all weekend long with Peter Nuske and Dan Lewis swapping positions nearly every lap of every race. In the end it was Peter Nuske who got the better of his team mate forcing Dan to settle for 2nd. 3rd was Allan Parker from over the border showing us he's no slouch always being hot on the heels of the lead 2 ready to pounce if either made an error.

With 4 Superkart lap records falling at this event, the competition was tough. Was great to have some southern competitors at the meeting. For more information see the club facebook site

Jordie’s Fords Dutch Double


Australian champ Jordan Ford took the double today in Assen winning Sunday’s Round 4 of the European Superkart Championship in the Mono Division to complement his Saturday victory.

In doing so the young Victorian extended his lead in the Mono Cup.

Starting from the Mono pole, twentieth position overall, Ford made a lightening start coming out of the first series of corners in 13th.

Jordie Ford Qualifies on pole

Reigning Australian Superkart Champion Jordie Ford continued his hot form claiming pole position at the Assen TT Circuit, scene of rounds 3 & 4 of the European Superkart Championship. On his first visit to the legendary circuit, Ford quickly came to grips with the high speed layout leading practice and both qualifying sessions.

Fords Anderson/DEA was at the top of the time sheets midway through practice the first practice session as he bettered three time British Champion Paul Platt's PVP/ Gas Gas benchmark time with current Euro Mono number 1, Gavin Bennett also improving.

Qualifying one was set in sunny weather with Jordie quickly into the low 1.41 second bracket, under the existing lap record. A late quick lap from Bennett placed him second behind the Australian with Platt third and Gareth James fourth.

The day didn't go all Fords way they as In qualifying two Jordan elected to stay in pit lane as inclement weather threatened. Bennett then found some speed to better Ford with ten minutes left on the clock of the 25minute session, forcing Jordan to resume ontrack where he lowered the Mono Class pole time by a further three hundredths of a second to claim pole.

Race 1 takes place at 1pm local time Saturday before Sunday's final race at 9.30am.

Ford currently sits second in the championship behind Paul Platt with the championships final round taking place in late October at Lemans Bugatti Circuit.
