Cooloola Opens Twin Track Challenge

from Kev ‘The Noise’ Davies

Another magnificent day of racing at Cooloola Coast Kart Club on Sunday! This time it was round one of the Ampol Golden Nugget Wide Bay Burnett Twin Track Challenge. Bundaberg Kart Club will hold the second round on the weekend of August 20-21.

108 drivers fronted for this round and not only was the 2-stroke racing excellent, but the 4-stroke racing matched it for numbers & competitiveness!

Jack Munro lowering the 4SS Supermaxx lap record by a comfortable margin, the ‘international driver’ Gaven Whitmore showing them how it’s done in TaG Restricted Medium and Shaun Jaques dominating TaG Championship Weight were just some of the highlights. Special mention to The Joker (Jye Flynn) dominating KA4 Junior and having battle through karts in front to get a clean sweep of victories.
