Wakefield Park Re-Opens To Sprint Karters

After three long years, Wakefield Park will once again rumble to the sound of kart racing - and it will be open to all licensed karters.

Both the Powered by Honda Prokart Australian Endurance Kart Championship and the newly formed NKA Super Series for sprint karts will descend on the venue for a huge weekend of racing on April 4 and 5. Practice is available on Sunday 29th March.

"We are experiencing an unprecedented level of interest in the Wakefield Park event" said Ryan Stott, Race Director. "We are expecting both Sprint kart and Endurance Kart entries from both Queensland and Victoria."

"Interest in the Super Series is growing, reaching a heady level of 100 entries at race meets" he continued. “We are expecting that number to be blown away at Wakefield Park."

The NKA Super Series will run on the Saturday with sprint-kart classes such as 100cc, 125cc and even SuperKarts. A 7-hour enduro for the Prokarts to be held on the Sunday.

Sprint karters will race on the challenging 1.2km track whilst the Shifters and Super Karters will take advantage of the full 2.2km circuit.

"The Endurance Kart teams are working overtime for what will prove to be the fastest, and more demanding race of the year" Ryan said " Its pretty special racing at Wakefield Park. You can hire pit garages along pit lane so the event certainly takes on V8 or F1 type feel. It is the start of some big things for them, a number of events are on the drawing board for next year to further feature this side of kart motorsport.”

"We are expecting Wakefield Park to become one of the many permanent features to our kart racing program for 2010 and beyond" added Stott. "We are excited to have added this venue to our varied range of racing venues throughout NSW and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial arrangement with Wakefield Park."
