Triple Crown Concludes at ‘Ruler of Cooloola’

by Kev ‘The Noise’ Davies

Well, what a weekend! The final round of the Triple Crown has been run and the series decided.

The series points totals are in the tables below. To get to these points it went a little bit like this…

4SS Cadets

A field of 5 started behind the Cadet 9s and Samuel Piggott had a fantastic day taking a clean sweep of victories to win the day and the series! Coming home second was Michael Quintiniani. Annabel Kennedy drove fabulously to finish third ahead of Zac Mason with new comer young Nicholas Kinder finishing 5th.

The 4SS Juniors 

The biggest junior field I’ve seen to date! It was a magnificent day of racing and very competitive. Coming out on top was the in-form miles Bromley. A close second was Kieran Stirling who actually drove two classes on the day. Third home the #11 of Jack Stimo Stimson just beating Jordan Briggs & William Carey. The top 3 is exactly how the podium positions ended up in the series.

4SS Senior Medium

James Hogan took a fabulous win ahead of arch rival and friend Tim Baker. Harrison Arendt came home third and once again that’s how the series finished as the cream rose to the top!

4SS Senior Light 

Kaid MacDonald had a great race day to grab enough points to put him 4th in the series just ahead of Casey le Gard. Scott Pierce brought home the #48 in third behind Hayden Nissen, but none of them were a match for Jack Munro who once again showed the 4SS Senior Light show it’s done. In the series, Le Gard had the last laugh against Scott Pearce & Kaid MacDonald by grabbing himself a 3rd place finish just behind Kevin Johnson who made enough points to come home second behind series winner Jack Munro.

4SS Supermaxx Medium 

Once again some fantastic racing in this class saw Vance le Gard come home 5th behind Craig Nissen. On the podium was the Project X driver Kev Johnston behind Scott Pearce and both of them beaten by the flying Hayden Nissen. All the top three ran two classes on the day. In the series it ended up Scott Pearce coming home third behind Kev Johnston in second with the series win going to Hayden Nissen. 

4SS Supermaxx Heavy 

A great third place to Edward Arendt in this one, a hard charging Cooper Walvin couldn’t be caught for second no matter how much he tried and likewise Craig Silcox looked in a class of his own taking the win on the day and in the series! Second in the series was Cooper Walvin and third Tommy Tucker.

KA4 Junior Light 

Driver of the day award by the stewards was handed out in this class and it went to eventual winner Luke Rinaldi who had an absolutely awesome day of battles with the super fast Jordan Ensbey who finished up second just ahead of Kieran Stirling in third.



KA2 class was running on the weekend also and Zane Rinaldi showed everyone a clean pair of heels. Elliot Cleary and Jordan Ensbey swapped second placed finishes but it was Cleary eventually coming home second ahead of Ensbey.

Junior Performance 

An awesome display of driving from Shaun Jaques got him a clean sweep of victories ahead of the biding Hugh Barter with Rhino Mueller coming a real close third.

KA3 Senior Light

A great performance from Lachlan Cowie to take all four victories beating cool-hand Luke Smith into second ahead of Lachlan Callaghan Pearce in third.

TaG Restricted Light 

Peter Bossons once again was in fine form taking a seemingly easy victory. Second in every heat was Lachlan Murphy and a brilliant effort on the day saw Justin McCartney come home third.

TaG Restricted Medium 

Peter Patzwald once again ruled Cooloola and took the win ahead of Lee Robinson. Coming home third was Brodie Gallagher.

We were treated to a display of driving also by the one Open Performance kart of the pirate, Coby Govoni, who broke the Cooloola lap record! 

Cadet 9p

A great drive from Cooper Millard to take the victory in this one ahead of Jack Jenson, who actually won the first heat. In third was Zander Watts 

Cadet 9b

The beginners saw a dominant performance from young Mackenzie Wagner ahead of Emrey Stallan in second and third was Tyler Ross. 

Cadet 12p

Fabulous result for Jye Flynn to take 1st ahead of Brodie Norris. Finishing third was young Seth Cotter.

Cadet 12

Moving into Cadet 12s, and already stamping his authority, was young Dima who took the win ahead of the in-form Levi Boyd. Finishing third in this one was the tempur sponsored 98 of Jackson Cooper.
