Karting club meeting going ahead at Sandy Ck Raceway

KARTING: The weather might be hot but it hasn't stopped the Warwick Karting Club going ahead with its race meeting at Sandy Creek Raceway today.

There was an early finish yesterday to practice in hot conditions .

"There is a chance we may shorten some races,” club secretary Fiona Williams said.

"Conditions will be monitored by our medicos on site.”

There are large number of karters at the track from the Gold Coast, Ipswich and the Darling Downs as well as some from as far as Port Macquarie in New South Wales.

Some drivers yesterday were cooling off in a small pool, a much smaller version of the swimming pool at the cricket at the Gabba.

Harry Vidler is a junior in his second year of karting and is competing today in his Kosmic kart in cadet 9.

"I am a member of the Ipswich club but will compete in each Warwick meeting this year,” he said.

Forty karters have nominated for the first club meeting of the year at Sandy Creek. Admission free.
