The competitors where greeted with the 846m track for this round of the championship. This track offers another passing move at the top of the hill with the double apex hairpin in play. Some of the karters have never raced on this track so it added a little spice to the meeting.
Tag R Heavy:
A big field again with 18 hitting the track, Peter Price dominated proceedings putting in a near faultless display. Derek Lane chassed hard all day, the boys in the field put on some great racing with some very interesting passes.
1st Peter Price
Always a pleasure to watch these young stars hit the track and they never fail to entertain. Jessie Attard again was to strong but he was pushed all day by Jett Bennett, Carey Alexander, Travis Litchenberger and Kyle Bonser unfortunatly Bonser would not finish the final.
1st Jessie Attard
Spectators where treated to some great racing in this class and it was great to see young Sarah Collins (Kosmic) take it to the boys coming from 14th to 6th in the first heat. Aaron Borg had his work cut out to keep her behind and they battled for most of the day. Josh Heath was also very fast grabbing a pair of 2nds.
1st Aaron Borg
Senior National Over 40s:
The more experianced, level headed, wiser, gentleman of the sport put on a show but most of it wasn't level headed!! Gerald Chait was the man to beat winning the first 2 races but the old fox, Bruce Gentle, used all his cunning to win the pre final. In what was a fierce battle in the final, first Gentle crashed, then on the last lap Williams and Chait crashed out while Chait was leading. This would leave Maurie Piper to pick up the pieces just like he said he would!
1st Maurie Piper
Junior National Heavy:
CRG v Monaco... Davidson and Gamauf both in the black machines and both taking it to Agathos in his Monaco. Agathos would get the win in the end, the boys putting on a great display of good clean racing.
1st Dimitri Agathos
Every spectator who had the pleasure to watch these kids went home with a smile! Russel Mayo in his first race meeting drove very well getting to 6th! He won a huge trophy for encouragement. Jason Varley, who won Clubman Heavy, donated his trophy to young Russel. Another big moment was Jasper Stacey grabbing his first trophy while still on his P plates when he secured 5th! Lucas Litchenberger got the win and was very dominant in his display.
1st Lucas Litchenerger
TaG R Light:
A big field of 25 for this class and it really shows that the TaG R class is a huge succsess with both Light and Heavy total numbers over 40! Mitchel Webster won everything until the final. Kyle Henry-Smith put it all together to get the big trophy. Dean Van Es was a solid 3rd.
1st Kyle Henry-Smith
The boys came out to play and we saw some rubbin' in this class. They do say Rubbin' is Racing... Varley got the win. He came back from a DSQ in the first heat. A good field of 17 raced hard all day and it was great to see Corey Lean back in Clubman Heavy at the club.
1st Jason Varley
Kuross Amri knows his way around Eastern Creek like the back of his hand and he showed the rest of his class the way around, however Aaron Cogger really took it to Amri.
1st Kuross Amri
Nigal Stones looked to be setting up a win but he didn't finish the race that counts. Tony Walls on the other hand cleared out from the start and won the final in dominating style.
1st Tony Walls
Nose to tail racing again from the Clubman Light field. Tommy Phillips looked to have this all sewn up, but Bryce Davidson ran him down only to break a chain. Eldridge came home with 2nd in a very old kart - imagine what he could do in a nice new frame!
1st Tommy Phillips
Junior National Light:
The final race of the day and spectators were set to watch the 3-way battle that had raged all day between Agathos, Ojeda and Chronis. Andreas Chronis took it to both Agathos and Ojeda as all 3 swapped the lead during the heats. The same would happen in the final and Chronis moved into the lead, Ojeda following him and Agathos right with them. The three opened a small gap to the rest of the field. Ojeda made a move for the lead knowing that if he didn't Agathos would and unfortunatly for Chronis he was pushed wide dropping him down the order and out of contention. Agathos took the lead and led all the way until the last corner. Ojeda making the pass stick to take the win in a very exciting race. Chronis drove back through the field to finish 7th.
