With the close of the 2017 Queensland Superkart Season coming to a close, the Gala Awards Night was the place to be. Was great to see some new faces in the podium positions. But experience was the key to 2017 with Peter Nuske taking home the coveted 2017 Club Champion Award. Consistency and great preparation was the secret. Even a change of chassis mid year didn't slow him down. Results are as follows. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1tIQvqmpeboGczE2IGyqFPCLzxq3tHdV2/view
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Queensland Superkart Club Inc. 2018 is shaping up to be a bigger and better year. Did someone mention 85cc Junior Superkarts using a CIK chassis similar to the Stock Honda regulations? Better watch out for that Press Release. Something that has been missing for years.
The 85cc Gearbox Class was alive and kicking in the QLD sun. Showing us that age in just a number, veteran racer and multiple 85cc Australian Champion Chryss Jamieson bought his Gladiator home in 3rd. 2nd place was Keith Taylor in his Honda powered Gladiator. Taking home the top prize was Cameron Moxley in Gladiator Yamaha kart!
The 250 National Class has been hotly contested all year with nothing more than a coat of paint separating them at times.
Taking home 3rd place was Gareth Crisp in his GAS GAS powered ADE. Taking home 2nd was Tim Weier in his GAS GAS Powered ANDERSON Maverick. 1st Place was Lachlan Crisp in his GAS GAS powered Anderson Mirage
Dan Lewis in his Lewis Plumbing Anderson Yamaha has fuel delivery issues all weekend but had plenty of speed when all was going well.
The 125cc Gearbox class has been the most popular with no less than 13 different participants during 2017. These 3 however have been regulars at the front all season long. Taking home 3rd place in his first time at Lakeside was Rocket Rod Tait in his Honda powered Stockman MR2. 2nd place Phil Silcock in his Honda powered Avoig Elise. Regaining the form that had seen him dominate the championship early was Sam McFerran in his Honda powered BRM

I wonder who will be lucky enough to get the Hard Luck Award? This trophy has been around for many years and still has the QRRKC (Queensland Road Race Kart Club) logo which was what the Queensland Superkart Club Inc first started out as now over 40 years ago.
