THE inclusion of junior and senior karts classes will make Sunday's Fraser Coast Small Wheels event one of the new track's biggest yet.

Tinana's former kart track was remodelled, redeveloped and reopened as a multi-purpose track earlier this year.

Driven by track operations co-ordinator Hayden Baldwin, an army of volunteers helped transform the course, nestled between Maryborough Speedway and Maryborough BMX Club, into a fully functional supermoto track.

Now, the club has included karting events in an effort to grow numbers.

"It's looking like we could get a fair few entries,” Baldwin said.

"We've got a few more entries by adding karts so hopefully we will get a good turnout.”

Baldwin said most of the volunteers that worked on the track had swapped shovels for machines.

"It's great to see everyone who helped get the chance to use the track,” he said.

"The club days have gone really well so far. We just need to get a few more locals showing interest and we'll be right.”

Gates open at 8am, scrutineering and sign-on from 8.30-9.45am, riders and drivers briefing at 9.45am and racing from 10am.
