Through three days of competition, gathering a record-breaking entry list of 200 drivers split into four categories, the Internacional Kartodromo Lucas Guerreroof Valencia rumbled last weekend for the 2019 IAME Winter Cup! The action on track saw the wins of Freddie Slater in Mini, Oliver Bearman in Junior, Dean MacDonald in Senior and Brad Benavides in Shifter at the end of a successful third edition of the event organized by RGMMC to kick off the IAME X30 season!
Auckland karters Bond Roby and Marco Manson spearheaded a strong showing from the large contingent of Kiwi karters who contested the opening round of Australia’s Sparco-backed 2019 Rotax Pro Tour series at Melbourne’s Todd Rd kart track over the Jan 26-27 Australia Day weekend.
It’s hard enough winning just the one class race at a major kart race meeting like the KartSport Auckland club’s annual Butch Pet Foods-sponsored City of Sails 2-Day Challenge at Giltrap Group Raceway on Avondale’s Rosebank Domain on Saturday and Sunday. Yet this year, four drivers – Jason Lee, Aarron Cunningham, Ryan Crombie and Ashton Phipps – claimed event clean sweeps, winning all five races they started to claim coveted CoS class titles for 2019.
