Winged speedway karts are popular in America, being a successful breeding ground for speedway stars of the future.
Now, the West Australian versions have joined the Speedway Australia fraternity, after showcasing their class at the Pinjar Park Motorcycle Speedway track in Perth.
West Coast Outlaw Karts Club President Trevor Reynolds was excited about the prospect of joining Speedway Australia in the New Year.
“This is absolutely awesome”, he said. “We expect this to open the door to more venues, and growth will follow”.
With a common go kart frame offering the protection of a roll cage, high back racing seat and safety harness, the greatest appeal comes in the form of the Sprintcar styling including the huge Sprintcar style Top wing. This gives youngsters the thrill of winged racing while adults who could only have dreamed previously can now have the chance to take to the track in a winged racer.
