Victorian Karters Of The Year

  14 December 2016

Troy Alger has won the 2016 Victorian Karter Of The Year award for senior drivers. Alger was presented with the perpetual trophy at Karting Victoria's awards night on the weekend.

At the conclusion of each race meeting conducted in Victoria, the officials decide together who they think was the best driver in each category. At the end of the year these votes are tallied up to determine the winners of the Karter of the Year awards.

  • Senior (Alan & Raie Choon Trophy) - Troy Alger (Gipsland Go Kart Club)
  • Junior (J.C. Maddox Trophy) - Nicholas Trebilcock (Rochester Kart Club)
  • Cadet 9 (Rene & Barney Smith Trophy) - Harry Arnett (Bendigo) & Jesse Lacey (GKCV) joint winners
  • Cadet 12 (Robotham & Johnson Trophy) - Fletcher Harris (Rochester/Eastern Lions)
