Six hour races on Sunday at Warwick Karting Club track

KARTING: Sandy Creek Raceway will be the venue for a six-hour Sportsmen Enduro Karting Queensland race this Sunday.

On Saturday, there were two one-hour races.

SEK co-ordinator Simon Ham said the SEK Queensland club raced twice each year at Sandy Creek Raceway.

"We have each karter on the track for eight minutes for qualifying,” he said.

"Our club doesn't have a home track but we are affiliated with the Warwick Karting Club.”

In a one-hour race, teams must change drivers twice and seven driver changes are part of each six-hour race in SEK Queensland.

Ham teams with Warwick driver Nic Lane in the enduro races.

They compete in seven state rounds and one State of Origin round each year.

Ham is an engineer working for Arup, a consulting engineering company which was involved in the structural engineering for the Sydney Opera House.

"It is good to get right away from work and go karting,” he said.

Lane is an apprentice with Warwick builders Hughes Elite Builders.

Admission free for this Sunday's racing at Sandy Creek Raceway, next door to the Sandy Creek Pub.
