The Australian Summer Series event three for 2023 was held in Queensland with more new winners to the Series being crowned at the Warwick Kart Club on Saturday afternoon.
Many drivers are using the Series to test a new category whether that be a step up from Cadets to Juniors or Juniors to Seniors.
The race of the day came in KA3 Junior when multiple drivers were in with the shot of taking the 11 minute plus one lap feature race.
Ultimately, while the fight continued for second and third, Hamish Campbell snuck away for a dominant win, while Loclan Hennock left it until the final lap to get himself into second over Kobe McInerney. In the heavy division in the same race, Charlotte Page became one of two female gold medallists today with Trent Newton finishing second and Zachary Turner awarded the bronze medal.
The other female winner was in Cadet 12 with Lana Flack adding to her haul of major race wins. Although leading the early phase of the race, it wasn’t clear cut until towards the end when she slipped down the order then had to fight through to take the win over Roman Krutil and Cooper Folley.
Troy Loeskow returned to the winners circle in the Gearbox class. It has been a long time between drinks for Loeskow, but put on a masterclass to work through the field after a problem from the startling and then hunted down Bailey Sagaidak who held a 2.5 second lead. Finishing third in a race of attrition was Kobe Barton.
Luke Trost was one of the drivers making. The move from Juniors to Seniors and dominated KA3 Senior. He took the win by over six seconds from Jake Czislowski and Tommy Harradine.
Jensen Marold won KA2 Junior despite crossing the line second. Hamish Campbell crossed the line first, however a post race technical infringement eliminated him from the results, promoting Isaac McNeill to second and Tyson McGill to third.
Jordi Slater took a 4.5 second win in Rotax Light getting home ahead of Jack Stimson and Bryce Lane.
Mika Lemasurier took out the ROK GP category in front of Tyler Howard and South Australian Jacob Dowson, who was elevated to the podium after Ryan McMillan was the recipient of a penalty for a driving infringement.
Zac Raddatz won X30 Heavy after surviving a race long battle with Jackson Souslin-Harlow. Daniel Brown was able to get through to finish in third.
In Mini Max Oskar Hennock got through for a narrow win over Aston Mills.
