Kart drivers from Cairns and Melbourne heading our way

KARTING: The Warwick Karting Club is expecting riders from as far as Cairns and Melbourne to be at Sandy Creek Raceway for the Junior Top Guns meeting on September 23-24.

Last weekend, the club hosted 70 riders as part of a challenge round.

Warwick driver Daniel Plant won the tag open class and set a new lap record.

Club president Peter Lane said he expected 120 drivers from Queensland and interstate to be in Warwick for the September event.

"We have had interest from as far as Cairns and Melbourne,” he said.

"Last year we had 102 drivers and I believe the number will grow this year.

"The club hopes to have prizes in excess of $10,000.

"Our club is always looking for more volunteers to run major events like the Junior Top Guns.

Anyone able to help out can call club president Peter Lane on 0418740021.

After the Junior Top Guns, the next event will be round 7 of the club championship on November 12.
