Karts on track for tune-up

KARTS drivers will have their last chance to test the host track of the SKAA Speedway Kart Australian Championship at Maryborough Speedway.

The Heritage City venue is in the midst of celebrating its 60th anniversary.

The committee earned hosting rights to a slew of national and state titles, including the SKAA Kart title during which several local drivers could feature prominently.

Maryborough Speedway president Wayne Moller admitted numbers may be affected by another race meeting at Gatton.

"This will be the last time we run karts before the Australian title so it's a good opportunity for drivers,” Moller said. "Nominations don't close until early January but we're expecting well over 100 drivers for the national titles.”

Maryborough driver Blake Hancock is one of the best in the state.

He won the standards class when Maryborough Speedway held the SKAA Karts Winter Nationals, in fields that were among the biggest the club has hosted.

The national titles will be contested on January 27.

Sunday's karts meet will start at 10am. Entry is free for spectators.
