Arrow Victorious At Tasmanian State Championships
The 2010 Tasmanian State Championships were held on the 19th, 20th and 21st of November at the Southern Tasmanian Kart Club. The recently reversed track configuration from previous State Championships didn’t intimidate the versatile Arrow Racing Karts as they made light work of the event winning 6 of the 12 classes.
Long time Arrow Supporters Leigh and Jordan Nicolaou enjoyed a successful trip across the Tasman, claiming two wins and a second in the three categories they competed in. Since making the transition from Clubman Light to Clubman Heavy, Leigh has placed his X1-28C at the front of the field in many major meetings across the country culminating with his victory in Tasmania. Local Arrow driver Samm Harrington drove strongly all weekend to round out the podium in third position.
Younger brother Jordan continued the good run for the family when the reigning Australian Champion dictated terms from the front to edge out Anton DePasquale and Matthew McLellan in Junior National Heavy, making it a 1, 2 and 3 for Arrow!
The roles were reversed in the final of Junior Clubman with DePasquale leading Nicolaou to the finish. Mason Thomas was consistent all weekend finishing third and giving Arrow another trifecta on the podium.
Liam McLellan claimed his first Junior National Light State Championship at only his second start in the class after making a last lap pass on fellow Arrow driver Brad Jenner. The two didn’t have it all their own way with young Jake Klein completing Arrow’s third trifecta for the day showing the strong young talent Arrow has to showcase.
Jordan Ford claimed his first State Championship since graduating to the senior ranks with a determined drive from ninth place to take victory in a hotly contested Clubman Light category. It was somewhat of a reward for the Melbournian after taking second position at the Australian Titles at Easter and placing in other major events throughout the year.
Not many people can boast about winning a State Championship in their career let alone five consecutive state championships in a row, but that’s what Arrow driver Steve Crocker did in the Over 40’s Pro division leading home fellow Arrow driver Terence Chadwick who finished third.
Overall it was a hugely successful event for Arrow Racing Karts. Winning half the classes confirms Arrow position as the benchmark in Australian karting at every level.
