Central Coast Speedway Kart Club hosted the “2017 Alan Hann Memorial” last weekend July 16, to a create crowd and with good fields of drivers across six racing divisions.
After horrendous luck with the weather earlier in the year, it was great to have brilliant sunshine over the entire weekend. This wasa regular club points round, with winners based on total points for the day. There are also two special Memorial awards for the highest points in all Junior and Senior classes on the day.
The first class to run for the weekend was KA4 Juniors. This was a strong class, with Jac Laneyrie and Luke Geering fighting it out in each race, However it was Jac who managed to find his way to the front each time, taking out maximum points.
1st-Jac Laneyrie, 2nd-Luke Geering, 3rd-Chloe Angilley.
Next up was KT Modified Heavy class, which was one of the bigger classes of the day. Lots of new talent and experience was on display, with some great racing and passing moves. Jason Carter and William Lucas had one of the more spectacular crashes of the day in Heat 3, however both drivers escaped without injury, although the karts needed some work. In the end, the heat wins were shared equally by Andrew Walkerden and Jason Bisset.
