23 young karters were the first to drive an official lap of the re-configured Albert Park F1 circuit when they took to the track early this morning.
The kids, a mixture of Karting Australia licenced juniors and cadets, followed former F1 racer (and Clerk of the Course for the Grand Prix) Tim Schenken who was driving a Maserati 250F.
The karters were led by Australia’s FIA Karting Championship Academy Trophy representative Harry Arnett, female driver Joanne Ciconte and Rochester Kart Club’s Tanner Peters.
“All in all, it was an incredible experience for the young drivers” Karting Australia posted on social media.
