The Challenge, based on the average points of the highest scoring six drivers (min. two) using the manufacturer’s product, provides the opportunity for many competitors to make a valuable contribution towards the final result – not just a ‘factory’ pair.
Entering next week’s round (June 19/20) to be hosted by the North Shore Kart Club at Sydney’s Eastern Creek International Karting Raceway Kosmic sit on top of the points table on 117, three clear of Tony Kart with CRG in third place on 111.
“The Manufacturer’s Challenge provides the opportunity for not just the factory teams, but all competitors, to gain valuable points towards the overall outcome of the title,” said series co-ordinator Peter Galvin.
“As can be seen by the standings at the half way mark, the chase for the title is a close fought affair with a mere eight points separating the top four brands.
“In the past the Manufacturer’s Challenge has been one of the most sought after trophies within the industry, it certainly gives all chassis manufacturers and importers something to thrive towards.”
