Warwick Karting Club races into the new year

KARTING: Up to 100 competitors will take to the Sandy Creek track this weekend for the final Warwick Karting Club meet of the year.

Karting club president Peter Lane said this would finish off a huge year for the club.

"We've been batting well above our average for a small town club," he said.

"We average around 100 competitors to each meet which is a testament to the club members who put a lot of time and effort keeping the facilities presentable."

Lane said the secret to the club's success was giving the competitors what they wanted.

"People want to see improvement," he said.

"Every time they come they see something new."

Lane said the support of local businesses made it all possible.

"I can't say enough about our sponsors - BP West Warwick, Warwick Industrial Supplies and Betta Home Living," he said.

"They are always willing to put up their hand."

Karting begins at 8.30am tomorrow until 3pm followed by the club's Christmas party and trophy presentations.
