Dave Hamnett Memorial

from Kev ‘The Noise’ Davies

That’s a wrap! The Noise’s 2022 season has come to a close and went out with a bang at the 2022 ‘Deep Sea Delights’ Dave Hamnett Memorial at Manning Valley Kart Club.

Around 150 had entered in the lead up to the event, so promised to be the best meeting held at the circuit for a long time.

The biggest fields were in the TaG Light & Heavy classes which made for very exciting racing to watch with some of the region’s best drivers on show. The junior classes were also well represented.

Three of the biggest classes (TaG Light, TaG Heavy & Junior Performance) thrilled spectators with a top-6 shoot out. Junior Performance fastest time went to Timothy Reed posting a 34.188, TaG Heavy was Chris Bregonje posting a 33.942 and TaG Light was Todd Stocks with a 33.428.

The heat racing got even more intense but with very few incidents considering the size of the fields.
