The Bob Gartside Special

by Kev ‘The Noise’ Davies

Another great event for the Stanbroke Bob Gartside race day at Ipswich City Dirt Kart Club and another record attendance – 146 entries and their families getting to see the displays of a sprint car & 1/4 scale sprint cars.

As for the racing, some great numbers necessitated 3 groups of 125cc Seniors and a huge field of 100cc Seniors. Again, the on track action didn’t disappoint with the added excitement of Dead Mans Finals with the prospect of champagne to be sprayed for the top 4.

Ya can’t park ’em THERE!

Following the fireworks and the 57 raffle prizes being given away, most were too cold in the Ipswich winter to be spraying champagne on one another – understandable if ya ask me! But some of the kids couldn’t resist.

Plenty of mumbo from Twin Rotaxes
Ipswich mayor Teresa Harding was on hand to wave the green flag for one of the race starts
Lots of shoeys by the kids (how many sets of race boots have been ruined by this?)
