There was a good mix of local and out of town drivers for the State Championship Shakedown, giving the drivers that turned out a good chance to fine tune their karts before this coming weekends South Australian Karting State Titles.

Jett Zerk in Cadet 9 took a clean sweep with Jarvis and Lucinda Jones having a good battle for second and third.

In KA4 Junior Light, Brayden Stewart won every race to take the win. Cadence Florentinus came second and Rhys Bartlett finished third.

There has been a lot of work by club members and volunteers in preparation of this week’s State Title round. This will be a great weekend for spectators or those interested in taking up Karting. There will be Karters from all over the country and from ages of 7 to 50.
