Newspaper article sent to the Northern Star for June race results run down.
Sunday the 26th saw the running of Lismore Kart clubs June meeting, which was well attended by drivers and spectators. With the day being very cold, this resulted in the circuit having very poor traction, even so the standard of driving and control was exceptional.
Grafton Kart Club used this meeting as their away meeting, so members attended and obtained points towards their end of year presentation. Grafton drivers said it was a real challenge, as their circuit is a much tighter one with less top speed than the Lismore circuit.
One of the large fields was that of the CADET 9 class (drivers 7 -9yrs) with 13 entries, these pocket rockets are really something to watch, their race skills are fantastic for their young age.
The CADET 12 class (9-12yrs of age) whilst small in numbers was certainly very competitive and very close racing. This class was dominated by Rusty Ross of the Ipswich club. Local driver Nathaniel Watts received an encouragement award for his efforts on the day.
Junior K4 Light class ( 12 -15yrs of age) this class was run combining both the light and heavy groups to create a larger field. This class was also dominated by an Ipswich driver Benjamin Jenkins.
Junior K4 Heavy class (12-15yrs of age) saw some great racing with a standout drive by Grafton’s Tim Hall.
KA4 Senior Light class made up of all drivers being Lismore drivers put on some of the best entertaining racing we have seen at the circuit in a long time. The sportsmanship both on and off the circuit displayed by these drivers was exceptional. Matthew Neil was the dominate driver in this class.
The Sportsman Light class was well contested with the largest field of 14 entrants, with the racing very tight and furious.
The Sportsman Heavy and Sportsman Super heavy were run together resulting in great racing with the heavy class being dominated by Lismore members, with local father and son battle it out for the honours.
