Gippsland Club Race Day, Round 1

Despite a couple of regulars being absent, the opening round of the Gippsland Go Kart Club’s 2020 season was one of the largest club race days for some time with 36 entries fronting the starter.

This was largely thanks to boosted numbers in KA3 Senior (five in Light, eight in Medium) and KA4 Junior (six in Heavy, four in Light, all P-platers) plus six Cadets.

Competitors should note that next month the March club day is not on the traditional last Sunday of the month, but will be raced one week early, on March 22.

The Cadets put on a fantastic final. Here, Ryan Wyhoon leads as Cohen Naumann #46 gets bumped into turn one of a heat race (pic – Steve Dansie)
