March 15th Race Event

Brisbanes first race event for the year has been run and done! Firstly as always a massive thank you to everyone who competed and the parents and supporters who cheered on the side lines! The atmosphere was awesome and we saw some exciting racing through all 3 classes! It was great to see some fresh faces joining in the fun as well!

Whilst most parents needed their coffee to get going the Cadet class wasted no time in hitting the tarmac. Joshua Richards pipped Luke Wilson to take pole by .386 with Ellie Wilson just narrowly missing 2nd place by 0.026th of a second! The first race would see Joshua Richards claim his first win of the year with Luke Wilson & Ellie Wilson holding their positions respectively. The second race would see Luke Wilson claiming the top step after pipping Ellie Wilson on the opening lap and holding his lead. Brock Helm would round out the podium finishing 3rd! The Final race saw Luke Wilson shoot off to take the lead with Joshua Richards hot on his heels! The boys would shoot out to a considerable lead leaving Ellie Wilson to hold down 3rd place!

Junior competition saw a field of 9 take to the track! Zachary Naylor struck first claiming pole from Luc Jacobsen & familiar face Jordyn Durrington rounded out the top 3! It didnt take long for Luc Jacobsen to overtake Zachary Naylor in Race 1, the former putting on a healthy lead to finish the race 8 seconds ahead of Zachary. Jordyns consistent and calculated driving saw him hold 3rd position! Race 2 and Luc Jacobsen wasted no time starting where he left off, this time putting a 9 second lead on the competition. Zachary Naylor would hold on to 2nd and Kyan Szczepanski would pip Jordyn Durrington to take 3rd! The final race and it seemed Luc Jacobsen wasn’t finished yet. Averaging a second a lap quicker than his closest rival Luc put on 22 seconds to cement his first place. Jordyn Durrington living up to his calculated nature made a pass on Kyan Szczepanski to finish 2nd and 3rd!

Open class was a treat with 8 fresh faces competing and having fun! Ben Hoffman continued his qualifying form from the Gold Coast round running a 39.7 to put him on top ahead of new comers Andy Barber and Matt Leaman. Race 1 Ben would set off and out a 12 second lead on 2nd place Andy Barber, 3rd place was claimed by Jamie Termbath after Matt Leaman dropped all the way back to 6th. Race 2 and Andy Barber and Ben Hoffman would have an awesome back and forth with Andy just edging out Ben by .304! Chloe Buck stepped it up with her first podium of the year! The final race would see Ben Hoffman muscle out Andy Barber and put on a 11.5 second lead! Jamie Trembath claimed 2nd with Dominic Melit 3rd. The open class produced some stellar battles with at one stage a train of go karts from 2nd to 8th all battling it out!
