Junior Super Series for Speedway Karters

  9 February 2015

Organisers have attracted 16 sponsors to the new 'CoolDrive Junior Super Series' for speedway karters.

The series, set to start on February 22, will see contracted drivers compete over several rounds at three tracks, with the finale to be under lights.

"The Series hopes to raise the profile of all Junior Speedway drivers and will pride itself on the promotion of the drivers and their sponsors" organisers wrote.

Drivers/teams will be required to secure one of the limited available spaces in the series by becoming a contracted driver. They have until February 15 to contact the organisers, which can be done via email to Scott Donaldson at anitajaned@optusnet.com.au

There is a series launch planned for Wednesday February 18 where all the teams and drivers will be revealed prior to the opening round at Gosford Showground the following Sunday.
