Former National Champion Jac Preston took on the second round of the Rotax Pro Tour at Eastern Creek Kart Track in NSW. Preston, after coming away with a strong podium finish in third spot at the opening round earlier this year, was looking to continue his strong form and grab a good haul of points to his championship.
At the first ever “Super 6” Round for the Sparco Rotax Pro Tour the weather conditions proved mixed across the weekend. Saturday’s Qualifying & Heats 1 through to 3 saw drivers having to make last minute tyre decisions on the grid. With rain just making the track greasy it was make or break for many drivers.
Spearheaded by Aucklanders Bond Roby and Marco Manson, the 11-strong contingent of Kiwi karters contesting Australia’s Sparco Rotax Pro Tour series this year are in Sydney preparing for the second round at the Sydney Motorsport Kart Club’s kart track at Eastern Creek this weekend.
