Driver winning in Warwick kart racing at age of 10
MOTORSPORT: After four second placings in the Cadet 12P class, Max Battaglene Sharpe won the final race in his class in the Queensland Junior Top Guns at Sandy Creek Raceway at the weekend
Max hails from Brisbane and is part of the Ipswich Karting Club.
He has only competed in four club days before taking on the junior top guns at Sandy Creek.
"I was surprised to win the last race,” he said.
At 10 years of age, he is in his first serious season at kart racing after previously playing football.
He was partly inspired to race karts as his uncle races cars in New Zealand.
In the last race of the day, he took the lead in the third of 16 laps.
"Kart racing is great fun,” he said.
While it was his first weekend in Warwick, Max plans to return.
"We will be back absolutely,” his father Geoff Sharpe said
