Preview: Eastern Creek 6-Hour

press release

This Sunday (July 5) the sixth round of the Powered by Honda ProKart Australia NSW Endurance Kart Championship, the ‘Eastern Creek 6 Hour’, is ready to be fought out at the Eastern Creek International Karting Raceway.

A field of 25 plus teams, that are to consist of between two to three drivers, are to revved up to tackle the ‘Eastern Creek 6 Hour’ and many of them have their sights set on coming away from the Eastern Creek International Karting Raceway with the winning honours.

The pace setters so far in this year’s NSW Championship have been the Wollongong City Raceway Jets team and they have recorded three out of the four rounds victories this year and plan to add another this Sunday by taking out the ‘Eastern Creek 6 Hour’.

Defending NSW Champions Team Kaos have been strong but unlucky in the opening four rounds of the NSW Championship and would love nothing more than to win the ‘Eastern Creek 6 Hour’ and open their 2009 winning account.

One of the latest NSW Championship round winners, the ‘Windsor 6 Hour’, was the Streamline Motorsport team and they are aiming to prove that their upset victory was no fluke by recording another round win.

Other leading contenders for this Sunday’s ‘Eastern Creek 6 Hour’ include teams such as newcomers Team SPR, along with the likes of Walkos Shire Racing, Horsepower Racing and many more teams.

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 starts from 8am and the ‘Eastern Creek 6 Hour’ race itself is scheduled to begin at 10am.
