Over 250 entries are expected for Round 4 of the Ipswich Kart Club Championship this Saturday which will also feature the IKC TAG Titles and the Graham Acerman Memorial for TAG Light. Round 4 of the IKC Championship leads into the Qld State Championships the week later also at Ipswich Kart Club, so many competitors, including a small contingent of interstate entries, will use this meeting as their last chance to prepare for the State Championships.
The TAG Feature Classes are filled with a huge amount of talent and will certainly provide entertaining racing for those in attendance. With the likes of previous winners, Tyler Greenbury, Scott Sorensen and defending champion Marc Tulloch, TAG Light will have many challengers for the title, but these guys will have some serious competition also from the likes of Ben Jurczak, Dylan Rudd, Dylan Drysdale, Harrison Hoey, Luke Pink, Thomas Cooper, etc, plus a couple of other more mature karters returning to the sport in Chris Gilmour and Kel Treseder. The list of possible contenders is huge and the action will be great to witness in what potentially could be a final entry list of 35 or more.
TAG Heavy also features a great array of talent, led by another previous winner of the Graham Acerman Memorial in Brendan Nelson. He will be pressed hard by Blayke Wagner, Gavin Whitmore and Scott Gray. Scott Cleveland, Jared Neinert, Andrew Gilliam, etc, will also be in the mix.
The very popular KZ2 class will also make another appearance on the programme at Ipswich and it will be interesting to see if Troy Loeskow can be seriously challenged in the lead up to the State Championships which will also have KZ2 on the programme. The young guns like Jac Preston, Flynn Jackes, Taylah Agius, Oscar Targett, Ryan Suhle, Brody Nunn, etc, will push hard to at least take a heat win over the dominant Loeskow, whilst this race meeting also sees the return of Kyle Ensbey to racing after a 2 year break.
All the other normal club day classes at Ipswich will be on the programme as well as the 4 stroke classes, so it will be a massive day with plenty of exciting action for those who can attend. Ipswich Kart Club is currently running under a COVID Safe Plan which allows up to 2000 people in the facility so spectators are allowed but will need to complete COVID Declaration details at the gate via a Q Code Scanner and of course will be expected to comply to all social distancing guidelines, etc.
