Victorian State Champion Cody Donald is up the front everywhere he runs and this was no different at the Junior Sprint Classic. Cody was in a sensational battle with some of the best JNH drivers in the country in Ryan Pike and Ben Harders. Cody had many lead changes and came home in great and respectable third place. Donald then headed to the Australasian Kart Titles and was in another great battle. Donald led the early stages of the red plate final and after a huge battle between four karters Cody came across the line in third spot. Congratulations Cody!

Rod Campbell took out the Australasian Kart Titles in 2013 and went back to defend his title this year. Rod was in a titanic three way battle all weekend and at the start of the final ran second and had his work cut out for him! Rod made a decisive move early in the final and was able to open a crucial gap and go back to back. Congratulations Rocket!
