The final round of the Victorian Superkart Club’s 2011 racing season has come to an end under perfect skies at the Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit on the weekend.

Only the hardened gearbox drivers attended this event coming straight off the previous weekends Australian Championship.

The Club farewelled long time racer Rod Prickett who decided this year it was time to give the sport away and concentrate on other projects. Rod ended his career on a high by not only taking out the day but the 2011 club series as well.

Sports sedan driver Darren Hossack made a return to the track driving Marty Latta’s single while Brendan Luneman spent the day testing and seeing just how far a single can be leaned out (he found out in the second heat).

In the 125’s it was winner take all for Rod Conn as the three series leaders put it all on the line.

In the Non Gearbox Rotax classes it was a dominant Alan Dodge from NSW over Peter Strangis in Light, a determined Bobby Jane from a very on the pace and hard charging Leigh Grant in Heavy, and Tim Clarke clean sweeping the Juniors from Conor Nicholson.

The club now heads into recess over the summer months and returns to Phillip Island in February.
