The final round of the Spreyton Fresh-AWC Motorsport Academy Karter of the Year series wrapped up on the weekend at Circular Head Kart Club.

  • Results from the 2017 Tasmanian Karter of the Year Series have been finalised and can be found further down this page. 171 competitors took part – wouldn’t it be great if they all turned up at once! Winners will presented with their series trophy at the awards night on December 2nd.

The final round also incorporated the shakedown to the Tasmanian Championships to be held at the track on November 17 to 19.

In typical Smithton weather, the day started out sunny however intermittent showers kept the crews busy all day.

In what will be a last practice for the State Titles, many of the competitors were eager to test different setups in a bid to find those elusive 10ths of a second that could bring home a blue plate in a few weeks time.

Racing was action packed with some great passing moves made thru out the classes. Local Smithton driver Daniel Hinds will head into the titles as the favourite in TaG Restricted Medium after taking a commanding win in the final, defeating reigning champion Shane Stonehouse and Statewide Series winner Scott Hildyard.

Another local in with a chance to claim a blue plate in November is the vastly improved Logan Dixon in KA4 Junior Light. Dixon battled it out all day with Ethan Wyllie and Fletcher Bellars, the three pushing each other hard all day.
