It was really great to see the pit area buzzing with karts and people.

Once Sunday was here it was time to put what had been learnt for the last three days of practice up against the local racers, with great racing across all classes.

It was a nice sunny day to be racing and the track looked great.

The next race meeting at Newcastle Kart Racing Club is round two of the Australian Kart Championships on 29th to 31st of March.
