3-Track Challenge Results

Our annual 3-Track Challenge was run yesterday.  67 karters were on track for the event, after a chilly 2degree start it turned out to be a beautiful day with some great racing on our 3-tracks.  Races were run over our 3 different length tracks, with a carby session and 2 races being held on each.  28 Local racers were joined by a plethora of visitors from other clubs with 23 from Orange, 4 from Combined Districts, 3 from Grenfell and Wagga, 2 from Canberra and 1 from Tamworth, Manning, North Shore and Griffith.  Of note again was the amount of D-Prov licence holders making it to the track with 11 over the classes run.  Heat 1 was run over 6 laps of the middle length B-track, Heat 2 was run over 8 laps on the short A-track, Heat 3 was run over 6 laps of the regularly used C-track and Heat 4 was again 8 laps on the A-track.  The prefinals and finals had to be reduced in length due to the lateness of the day and fading daylight, with the prefinal being reduced from 10 laps to 8 laps of the B-track and the final run over 10 laps instead of 12 on the C-track.

The final victors of each class were:

- Cadets: Cody Burcher (Orange)

- Rookies: Tyler Everingham (Dubbo)

- Jnr Nat Light: Nicholas Riley (Dubbo)

- Jnr Nat Heavy: Gus Flynn (Manning)

- Snr Nat Pro: Jason Newham (Orange)

- Clubman Light: Dylan Shepard (Orange)

- Clubman Heavy: Chris Riley (Dubbo)

- TAG-R Light: Alexander Ward (Canberra)

- TAG-R Heavy: Peter Whale (Dubbo)

 

The junior 3-track champion ended in a draw with Nicholas Riley from Dubbo and Cody Burcher from Orange tied on points.  Senior 3-track champion was claimed by the current Senior National Australian championship holder Jason Newham from Orange.  Complete results can be found here: https://app.austkarting.com.au/aka/results/view/NSW/Dubb/2013-06-16 On top of the results from the race meeting a number of track records were also set, especially on the A & B-tracks, there new records and their new holders can be found HERE.
