Teams Primed For Windsor 6-Hour

press release

The form team so far in the Powered by Honda ProKart Australia NSW Endurance Kart Championship is the Wollongong City Raceway Jets, and they are looking to continue their winning ways when they line up to the contest the fourth round, the ‘Windsor 6 Hour’, this Saturday (May 16) at the Indy 800 Kart Track, near Windsor in the Hawkesbury District.

Currently after three rounds of the NSW Championship, the Wollongong City Raceway Jets have managed to walk away with the victory spoils and this Saturday they are no doubt aiming to extend their winning streak. This is the first time ever that ProKart Australia has held a round of the NSW Championship at the Indy 800 track and it is going to be quite interesting to see who comes out on top at the fall of the chequered flag.

With every winning streak comes the pressure of being able to continue that success and the likes of Team Kaos, Walkos Shire Racing, Horsepower Racing, Illawarra Karts and Parts Team and KBC Racing are more than capable of putting an end to the dominance of the Wollongong City Raceway Jets.

Trent Warwick from the Wollongong City Raceway Jets feels that their early season success is not adding any extra pressure and the plan is to keep winning.

“We have been really happy with our form and we plan to ride this wave of success for as long as we possibly can,” declared Warwick. “Our preparation is the same as it always is and we just take each round as it comes and don’t get too far ahead of ourselves. Winning certainly does wonders for the confidence but all we can do is try our best, stay consistent, work hard and see where that takes us and that is the attitude we take with us into each and every round.”

Reigning NSW and National Champions, Team Kaos, have set their sights on ending the successful start the Wollongong City Raceway Jets have made to this year’s NSW Championship this Saturday during the running of the ‘Windsor 6 Hour’.

“So far this year we have had the pace to match it with the Wollongong City Raceway Jets, but the thing that we have had missing is a bit of lady luck,” Team Kaos manager and driver Brian Briton said. “The plan is get into victory lane this Saturday and there is no reason why we should be thinking any differently. Every winning streak has to end sometime and we just hope that we can bring it to an end at the ‘Windsor 6 Hour’. I feel that we have an advantage over the other teams with our drivers having plenty of experience around the Indy 800 track.”

Endurance Kart Racing consistently brings in plenty of race action and sees the switch of positions throughout the race due to drivers having to pit for driver changes and re-fuel. The race action itself is also a test for the drivers themselves as they must drive for long periods at a time which will test their driving skills and also test each team with their preparation and team work. In Endurance Kart racing it is not always the fastest team that wins, but the most consistent. There are between three to four drivers in each team in Endurance Karting, depending on the race distance.

Practice and qualifying session’s kick off from 9am on Saturday and then the ‘Windsor 6 Hour’ race starts at 2pm and goes right through to 8pm.

Sharing the billing with the ‘Windsor 6 Hour’ is going to be the fourth round of the Super Sprint 4’s Series. The Super Sprint 4’s Series is open to Senior class driver’s that will see them contest practice and qualifying sessions followed by heat races and a final.

The Indy 800 Kart Track is located just over an hour from the Sydney CBD, on the banks of the beautiful Hawkesbury River. Just five minutes drive from the historic township of Windsor; follow the Wilberforce Road after crossing the Windsor Bridge to the town of Wilberforce.
