Endurance karting invades Lismore
Kart racers from across Northern NSW and Queensland are set to invade Lismores show ground this Sunday, March 24, for the second round of the 2007 Queensland Endurance Kart Championships.
The six-hour endurance karting event is a whole team effort, with more than one driver required to finish the race and a solid pit crew vital for quick pit stops.
The 12 teams that are expected to line up for the Lismore event will be keen to knock off opening round winners Civic Avengers. The Avengers are in impressive form after placing second outright in the most recent round of the ProKart Australia Karting Championship at Manning Valley Raceway and are currently in the outright lead with 200 points ahead of the South East Queensland Recycling team on 194 and the Brickies team on 188.
Queensland Endurance Kart Championship organiser, Mark Johnson, says that interest is mounting in this cheap form of motor racing as word spreads.
This is the first year that we have staged the Queensland Endurance Kart Championship and so far the interest has been encouraging and if the racing from the opening round is anything to go by, then we are in store for an exciting debut year, Johnson said.
Lismore has a wonderful go-kart track that is very challenging, and combine that with the unpredictable six-hour event, it is sure to be exciting, he said.
