Promising Start For NKA National Super Series

press release

The NKA National Super Series started in promising fashion at Oran Park Raceway last Sunday with close to 100 entries received over the Junior and Senior classes. The action on the track was close and exciting.

ProKart Australia manager and the brainchild of the NKA National Super Series, Tony Pullen, was very impressed with how the opening round panned out and the remainder of the year only looks to get better.

“The opening round of the NKA National Super Series certainly exceeded my own expectations and having close to 100 entries for the opening round is an indication that the need is there for a cost effective and low key Go Kart series,” enthused Pullen. “During and after the day I had plenty of people come up to me and told me how much fun they had and that they are looking forward to the remainder of the year. Another pleasing aspect was that we had many people turn up and observe the round and on the day we gained 15 new members that plan to contest the next round.”

With interest growing at a rapid rate, Pullen and the ProKart Australia team are looking forward to seeing the NKA National Super Series build throughout the year.

“Early indications show that the NKA National Super Series is only going to grow as the year goes on and I for one are very exciting about that,” said Pullen. “The NKA National Super Series has received plenty of encouragement and we are pleased with the start we have made to the year and look forward to seeing new competitors. At the end of the day Go Karting is what we’re all here for and to help the sport grow to its full potential.”

The opening round of the NKA National Super Series saw round wins shared between: Bryce Davidson (Junior Clubman), Ryan Eldridge (Junior National Heavy), Coire Donnelly (Junior National Light), Drew Friend (Rookies), Jayden Ojeda (Midgets), Mark Moore (Clubman Heavy), Chris Cuttell (Clubman Light), Simon Bonello (Senior National), Joe Chetcuti (Open Performance), Grant Gaffa (TAG Red Light), Adam Nassif (TAG Red Heavy), Michael Lia (TAG Yellow), Vic Roy (TAG Red Over 40s) and Shane Taite (TAG Red Super Heavy).

Another positive to come out of the weekend was Friday’s open practice session that saw over 60 drivers take part.

“To have over 60 karts take part in Friday’s practice session was very impressive and it has encouraged us to look at holding more practice sessions this year on a Friday,” added Pullen.

Round two of the NKA National Super Series is to be held on Sunday, March 8 at Sydney’s Eastern Creek International Karting Raceway.
