Vic Open Still On - But Help Needed

The Eastern Lions Kart Club has advised the Victorian Open Sprint Kart Championships will be held as planned this weekend.

The Hume International Raceway facility at Puckapunyal has been unaffected by the tragic bushfires that engulfed parts of Victoria.

However, there is an increased need for volunteers. "A large number of our rural volunteers that were to work at the Vic Open have been called to other duties due to the bushfire emergency and are now unavailable" the club's Tom Mills informed KartSportNews. "We are in urgent need of flaggies for the Thursday and Friday and reumumeration is available."

If you can help out, please contact Chris Sanderson on 0418 340 081.
