The Yorke Peninsula Dirt Kart Club ran its last race meeting for 2021 last Saturday, and it was a hotly contested event with 100 drivers over 10 classes.
Some race incidents early and the hot weather and persisting winds kept the track crew hard at work until sunset.
The new surface was great and confirmed the recent work done by the club has been beneficial, with a few more slight changes the track will be ready for SA titles next year.
The racing was good all night with passing opportunities and very few incidents after the early few incidents. This was great to see and produced some close results.
Well done to all the officials and volunteers once again, we can’t race without your support. Something the drivers and crew need to remember is without these people you can’t race so be positive and have respect for all volunteers at race days.
The Education Day was well supported on Sunday and a lot of laps were had by all. We saw some great improvement in some of the younger drivers by the end of the session.
The AGM/Club Presentations were held after a BBQ lunch at the club and we thank all those that managed to attend especially all those who took on roles at the club for the 2022 season.
