Tag 125 Heavy driver Steven Wrigley had a impressive debut outing in his new Praga kart qualifying 9th and being amongst the leader all weekend until he and another kart made contact in the final sending Wrigley into the tire wall and out of the race. Rookie drivers Jackson Callow and Tate Frost had probably the biggest challenge of all when they lined up in a field of 30 drivers from all over Australian, Frost qualified 18th and Callow 24th.
