Round 4 Of The 2014 Tasmanian Statewide Series and 2014 McDonald’s Young Guns Meeting


Round four of the 2014 Tasmanian Statewide Series saw a slightly different format with a two day race format being utilised to allow for series engine measuring to be conducted and the reduced daylight hours at this time of year. The Launceston Kart Club’s Archerville Kartway once again played host to one hundred and ten of Tasmania’s best drivers who were not only vying for their finishing positions in the four round series but also the LKC Club Title. Add the prestigious McDonald’s Young Guns race to end proceedings and the on track action was guaranteed to be hotter than the off track temperature.

The Launceston Kart Club will hold the final round of the 2014 State Wide Series this weekend.

The meeting also includes the annual McDonalds Young Guns Race, this race has been won by a who’s who of talented Tasmanian karters over the years. The race itself is open to all junior drivers and is held over 20 laps at the conclusion on the Sunday’s race meeting. Launceston’s Jackson Callow will be keen to add his name to the trophy, but will need to be at his very best to hold out Hobart gun Zevie Eisentraut who defeated Callow at round three of the series. Others in contention will be Jonah Slater, Lachlan Newman, Andrew Lee, Justin Murphy and a trio of Launceston girls in Kiana Toon, Caitlin Fitch and Tayla Heath.

There will be twelve class winners of the 2014 state wide series determined over the weekend races, with each class winner receiving a red number plate to carry for the next twelve months that signifies them as a series champion.  A number of Launceston kart Club members are leading the points standing going into the final round.
Westbury’s Tate Frost has a slender 3 point gap in Rookies and with 120 points up for grabs will need to fight hard if he wants one of the red plates on offer.
Jackson Callow leads the Junior National Light class by 23 points from another LKC member in Andrew Lee.

In Senior National Heavy LKC veteran and multiple state wide series winner Johnathan Males has a commanding 79 point lead and barring disaster should win title number 6.
Another LKC Veteran in Adrian Harper also looks set to win a red plate this time in the highly competitive over 40 pro class.

Allan Sheahan in Over 40 super Heavy holds a slender 12 point margin over brother Troy, This could be an epic final round for the two brother with twelve months of bragging rights on the line brotherly love may go out the window in this one.

Nathan Zuj looks set to once again defeat the young brigade that comes along each year in Clubman light, going in to the final round with a 36 point margin over Hobart’s Brad Hobden.

Rounding out the local hopes will be Jairus Holmes who leads TAG Restricted Light by a mere 4 point from coastal driver Keenan Slater.
Racing will be on both Saturday and Sunday with full canteen facilities available for the spectators.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

E-mail Print PDF

Dear fellow karters.

On behalf of myself and the committee, I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas and New Year period.

After a very good 2013 karting season we look forward to an even better 2014.

As you are most likely aware, on January 1st the track direction will change from clockwise to anti-clockwise (right out the gate).  I must remind everyone that due to many reasons, not the least safety to fellow karters, anyone practicing at the track must go clockwise until January 1st as penalties may apply for anyone doing otherwise.

There are a number of events planned for 2014 with plans already in place for the return of club days in February and March.  The continuation of these will depend on your participation, so if what I am hearing is correct and members want the club days to return, please support these upcoming days.

We are all looking forward to our first meeting on January 18 with a number of different things planned for the FT Guy Bodyworks Twilight Thunder. Supp regs on this page.

Once again, have a safe and happy Christmas and we hope to see you all on January 18th

Mark Mitchell
