Record Field For Prokart Enduro Championship

press release

A field of 38 teams is set to kick off the opening round of the Powered by Honda ProKart Australia National Endurance Kart Championship, the ‘Oran Park 7 Hour’, this Sunday (February 8) at Western Sydney’s Oran Park Raceway.

In what is by far the biggest assembly of team’s in the history of the Powered by Honda ProKart Australia National Endurance Kart Championship; the ‘Oran Park 7 Hour’ promises to be closely fought and very exciting.

Heading the 38 team line up is defending Powered by Honda ProKart Australia National Endurance Kart Championship, Team Kaos, and they are no doubt looking to make it back-to-back championship and they go into this year’s Championship as one of the firm favourites.

ProKart Australia owner Tony Pullen is ecstatic about the record number of entries to the opening round of this year’s Powered by Honda National Endurance Kart Championship.

“38 teams is something totally unexpected, but it is a great example of how much the National Championship is growing,” Pullen enthused. “We have the majority of last year’s teams returning, other team’s coming out the wood work or returning after they competed in a rival championships, and there are a number of new teams and that is certainly something that hold’s the future of the National Championship in good stead.”

Pullen continued on by saying that a number of Queensland based teams have joined this year’s National Championship as well as contesting the Queensland Championship.

“There are a number of strong teams based out of Queensland and it’s great to have them support the National Championship,” Pullen said. “What makes a National Championship so strong is bringing together the best drivers from all states and there is certainly plenty of home state pride out there on the track, which adds more spice to the National Championship itself.”

Endurance Karting, which runs between three and four drivers per team, is not only about racing, but also chasing consistency, slick pit teams, a lot of team strategy and you can also throw in some good luck.

Open practice for all teams is to be held on Friday and then on Sunday there will be both practice and qualifying sessions followed by the ‘Oran Park 7 Hour’ event. Throughout the day there will be various promotions via giveaways from both the ProKart Australia ‘Grid Girls’ and Redbull Energy Drink.

On Sunday the on track action is scheduled to start at 9am. The Oran Park Raceway circuit is located on the corner of Northern Road and Cobbitty Road in Narellan NSW.
