Another huge entry of 228 drivers will be contesting Round 3 of the Ipswich Kart Club Championships this Saturday the 30th of April. Feature classes will be KA4 Junior Light, KA3 Junior and KA3 Senior as they contest the IKC KA100 Titles.
In KA4 Junior Light, amongst the 22 entries the likely frontrunners will come from Luke Rinaldi, Xavier Avramides, Toby Musico, James Cittolin and Dominic Penman. Others looking to impress will be Jye Flynn, Jaxson Fischle, Jett Adamson, Angus Hare and Charlie Cronin.
KA3 Junior is always hotly contested at IKC and the likes of Sebastian Tupackovski, Jack Wells, Isaac McNeill, Brodie Norris and Jake Czislowski will be out front, but others like William Gallagher, Jake Szewczuk, Dominic Penman and Alex Gardner will all challenge for the podium.
KA3 Senior looks to be a likely battle between Kurtis Tennant, Jai Brown and Keegan Fraser, with Will Marshall, Ryan Uhlmann, Henry Titman and Josh Miller in with a chance. Justin McCartney will be making his debut in this class and may also figure prominently.
Across the other classes, Cadet 12 once again has a large field of 25 entries, Cadet 9 has 21 entries, the Cadet P class has 13 entries and the open TAG classes also have big numbers, 23 in Light and 18 in Heavy.
This Round of the IKC Championships also sees the return of the IKC Clubday Challenge Program which will see Group winners acknowledged in Cadet 9, Cadet 12, KA4 Junior Light, TAG Restricted Light, TAG Restricted Medium and TAG Restricted Masters.
The Clubday Challenge Program is designed to offer incentive for those who normally finish mid field or further back and basically creates a race within a race in these classes, as drivers compete for winning their Group.
