Five-Kart Team Tackles Phillip Island

press release 12 August 2015

Williams Racing heads to the famed Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit for a milestone moment this weekend as it will be the first time the team runs five karts across three classes for the 2015 Victorian Superkart Clubs, Australian Non-Gearbox Nationals/Victorian Gearbox Titles.

For their 250cc National entries, this will be almost a test session for the team with the second round of the Australian Superkart Championship only a month out.  So they will be hoping to get some good data from the event.

Current Australian Superkart Championship class leader Jordan Ford will be hoping to add a state title to his already growing Superkart CV as he wishes to continue his momentum from the Sydney round back in July. After lowering the Sydney Motorsport Park by three seconds, improvements to his Yamaha powerplant could put the current Phillip Island lap record at risk if the weather proves favourable.

Dale Williams will be running his first race at the Island since the Shannons National round last September and is looking to see if his new Anderson long wheelbase chassis suits the long open circuit.  Joining the duo will be Tyler Williams as he hopes to gain some valuable experience at the track before returning for his debut national round in September.

In the Non-Gearbox, Williams Racing is represented in both classes with two hungry drivers looking to take home a coveted Australian #1 plate.

Travis Jones is eager to improve on his new found form from the last club meeting to get a good result in the 125 NGB Light. With increased support from sponsors Sunbury Collision Centre and Superior Automotive, Travis is sure to be amongst the front runners in this class.

Jarrod Sanfilippo will be competing in the 125 NGB Heavy class in his Burbank Homes sponsored Monaco for the second time after winning at the Island on debut last time out. Used to his regular surroundings at Todd Rd, he quickly adapted to the wide open spaces on offer and easily adapted to the slipstreaming style of racing synonymous with the seaside circuit. With a freshly built engine from Master Karting, Jarrod will be a dark horse for the championship.

Williams Racing would like to thank their sponsors Peter Ford Catering, Burbank Group, Slipstream Signs, Dunlop Kartsport, Yamaha and PowerFlow for their continued support of the team.
