Fun Day Races Kick Off Tiger SeasonTweet
from Sean Phillips
The WA karting season kicked off last weekend for members of the Tiger Kart Club with the annual Fun Day held at Wanneroo Raceway. This meeting is more of a shakedown for the experienced members and a great way to start off nice and easy for the many new members racing for the first time.
The morning offered 3 full practice sessions and then into the 3 heat format race day on the fast 780mtr short track.
It was very encouraging to see so many P-plate drivers in all classes, particularly the Cadets where we had over 12 new Cadet members inducted through our new “driver readiness test” the week before, so they can now hit the track in a safe and controlled manner.
Our hard working committee ran the meeting filling all the roles from trolley duties through to chief stewards and were on hand to assist our newest members with anything they needed to understand.
Although the meeting was just a fun day the racing as usual ends up being fierce and some great battles were had in most races. Thankfully the carnage was at a minimum.
The winners on the day were:
Next weekend the Tiger Kart Club holds WA’s first open meeting on the same track but this time under lights on Saturday night for the Australia Day Open. It should be a great nights racing and an awesome way to really kick off the 2013 karting season.
