Another huge field of 220 entries will be racing at Ipswich Kart Club this Saturday for the KA100 Titles and Round 3 of the IKC Championship.
In the feature classes for KA100, KA4 Junior Light, KA3 Junior and KA3 Senior Light, quality and quantity are abundant.
KA4 Junior Light has 29 entries and the likely pace setters will be Jack Wells, Lachlan Platten, Carter Mobbs, Alice Buckley, Jordan Ensbey, etc. With the Qld State Championships also being held at Ipswich in early October, many drivers from throughout the state have entered to get in some practice for the State Championships, so the locals may be challenged by the likes of Matthew Boylett, Billy Myers and Tom Dare. Several drivers have also recently taken the step from Cadet 12 up to KA4 Junior Light, so the likes of Beau Bromhead and Charlie Bowen will also be ones to watch.
KA3 Junior is full of talented drivers and have been putting on some sensational racing lately in South East Queensland. From the 24 entries Zane Rinaldi, Ty Spencer and Ryan Laycock would be the 3 favourites for victory, but Coby Govoni, Marcos Flack and Shaun Jacques will also challenge.
KA3 Senior Light has also been providing some fantastic racing lately, with the Matthews brothers and Jai Brown at the front but extremely close. Jace Matthews will go in as favourite ahead of brother Declan, but with talent like Jai Brown, Harrison Hoey and Kurtis Tennant in the field, this will be a great class to watch.
Once again the KZ2 class will make an appearance and put on another great spectacle.
All classes will get 3 Heats and a Final, with the Feature KA100 Classes having qualifying and all other classes having random grid draws. All classes will be Final only counts.
Under the Qld Health approved COVID Safe Plan, Ipswich Kart Club can now have spectator attendance and up to a total of 2000 people in the facility. All in attendance though must still either complete an online Karting Australia COVID Declaration or scan in at the gate with the Q Code.
