April Race Meeting
We had a great turnout of 37 karts for our April meeting with an even amount of entries spread across all the grades although must admit it was great to see so many midgets racing – eight in total and then our new Super Kart Grade is now also attracting a great deal of interest with both Ben and Kyle racing this last meeting and word has it that there are a few more Super Kart developments happening.
Benny’s Again helper of the was awarded to Kathryn Stowell who took over Gareth’s BBQ duties and Midget/Intermediate Karter of the day was awarded to Malakai Webb of Christchurch – thanks heaps for coming down to race with us and hopefully Dad will bring you back down again.
The BBQ will be running during the lunch break with sausage/bread/onions for $2.00 and also have small bottles of fizzy drink for $1.00.
If you know of anyone who has a paddock available for the Club to race on please let one of the Committee know as it’s greatly appreciated to have new venues to race at.
A big thanks to all our volunteers that help out leading up to and on our club days, your help is greatly appreciated.
See you all at the AGM and next race meeting
