Hays won at the inaugural event and finished as the highest placed Australian in the corresponding event last year.  He has got his sights set on toppling his more experienced rivals next weekend in the elite KZ2 class.

Seven classes of competition will be in action ranging from the KA12, where drivers are aged between 9 and 12 years of age, through to the KA Masters for the drivers aged over 35, where it is proof that karting is a sport for all ages.
