Race Return to Gippsland

Racing returned for the Gippsland Go Kart Club on Sunday with the running of the club’s August race day.

The previous club day in July had to be cancelled due to low numbers, however it was not a total loss as it allowed some potential new members to try out the sport rather than just watch from the sidelines.

The club’s next race day on September 25 is expected to be quite busy with drivers using the event as a shakedown for the final round of the Golden Power Series at the venue on October 22-23.

Results below are the overall placings based on total points for the day (three 10-lap heats plus a 15-lap final). Full results are on speedhive HERE.
