by Stuart Lee 6 October 2014

Adrian Harper claimed the Phil Goss Memorial race at the Launceston Kart Club on the weekend, in what many spectators and drivers have called one of the greatest races they have witnessed.

Launceston's Harper diced corner after corner and lap after lap with Smithton's Stuart Wells, the pair changing the lead no less than 35 times in the 20 lap race with Harper taking the lead for the final time on the second last corner to take the well deserved win. Third across the line was another LKC member in Robert Green.
