Oceania Closes Retro Championship

from Kev ‘The Noise’ Davies

Retro Karting Australia’s Oceania Championship meeting in Victoria on the weekend closed out the RKA Series for 2023 with some decent size fields and high-revving action.

“It was one hell of a weekend at Eastern Lions Kart Club’s Hume International Raceway in Puckapunyal and it did not disappoint” The Noise told KartSportNews.

“This track lends itself to really competitive racing in any class of kart, so it was fitting to have the 2023 RKA Oceania Championships and season finale at this circuit.

“Practice all day Friday showed that drivers from Tasmania, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales & the Australian Capital Territory meant business this weekend!”
