Gold Nugget C&D Titles

from Kev ‘The Noise’ Davies

Another fantastic karting event was completed on the weekend, this time is was the Golden Nugget C & D Titles at Cooloola Coast Kart Club.

Almost 70 drivers enjoyed a 2-day event which saw practice until lunchtime Saturday, then qualifying and heat 1 in the afternoon. The rest of the heats and finals were completed by 3pm Sunday.

The qualifying in some classes was definitely a sign of what was to come – the 4SS Senior Light class saw the top 6 separated by less than 2 tenths! 4SS Juniors were equally close and once again KA3 Junior & Cadet 12 provided some outstanding racing.
