The winner of three editions (i.e. 2014, 2016 and 2017) Paolo De Conto has been particularly unlucky this time around, as he had to retire from the Final due to an incident following another incident that affected one of his qualifying heats. That was a pity as De Conto had secured the third time in qualifying, being only 0.020s off the pole position time. Benjamin Tornqvist also had to stop after posting the ninth time in qualifying, while alongside the fifth place of Kyle Wick in KZ, other highlights of the race for CRG were the eighth place obtained by Matt Jaskol and the 11th of Brian Keck.
To provide this pathway, IKC offered four Come and Try Days throughout the year and close to 200 drivers participated across those Come and Try Days and this generated many new members, a lot of whom are now racing competitively or practising towards racing next year.
To provide this opportunity and create encouragement for drivers further back in the fields, Ipswich Kart Club introduced the Clubday Challenge Program for 2018 for the “Development Classes” i.e. Cadet 9, Cadet 12, KA4 Junior, TAG Restricted Light, TAG Restricted Medium and TAG Restricted Masters.
Thanks to DPE Kart Superstore Queensland for providing 5 x random prize draw packs worth over $150 each. Also thanks to Lake Leslie Tourist Park for providing an accommodation voucher to be given out as a random prize, and to all the officials/volunteers/emergency services/canteen and assistants on the weekend – it was a cracker!
