Team RacePrep To Run Lehane & Mitchener At Tassie Titles

  8 October 2012

Queensland based Team RacePrep has announced that champion karters Pierce Lehane and Lee Mitchener will line up with the squad at the 2012 Tasmanian State Championships at Burnie next month.

Lehane (right) will suit up in the Clubman Light class while Mitchener will race TaG 125 Heavy.

"To have two drivers of this calibre making an appearance at the 2012 Tasmanian Titles is not only a coup for Team RacePrep, but for the NWKC" the team said in a statement.

"Pierce has had an amazing year and the future is very bright for this young man. Lee is a consummate professional beyond his years and he always puts in 200% for us."

Over the years Team RacePrep has boasted the likes of Barclay Holden, Richie McLeod, Ryal Harris, Kris Walton, Tyler Greenbury, Matt Greenbury, Brendan Nelson and Lee Mitchener (below) - and now adds Pierce Lehane to the list.

"Team RacePrep’s Col Watts (Wattsy) has always been a great advocate for mentoring and guiding some great drivers to be totally world class over the years.

"We have secured some great local sponsorship to get the guys over to compete and we are happy to have Sheps Concrete & Cleaning Services and Waddington’s Panel & Paint on board."

The Tassie Titles will be hosted by the North Western Kart Club on November 16 to 18.
