New Competitors Spice Things Up At The Second Round Of The 2012 Tasmanian Statewide Series
On February 11th and 12th the Southern Tasmanian Kart Club held the second round of the 2012 Tasmanian Statewide Series. 117 competitors flocked to the Orielton circuit with many turning up on the Friday to get in some extra testing. The weather forecast predicted rain throughout the weekend and competitors were prepared for a drenching. Fortunately it failed to eventuate allowing for some of the best racing of the series so far. Come finals, the track had substantially improved and competitors smashed their qualifying times. Steve Crocker even managed to set the lap record in his class. This round also saw several new competitors joining the series to throw a cat amongst the pigeons.
Results after the second round of the series are available here.

If you want to become an official, schools are being held on the following dates:
11 February - STKC track at Orielton
14 April - NWKC track at Highclere

emphasis on meeting paperwork and with more emphasis on ‘on the job’ mentoring
on the Sunday. This is where any new officials coming along will be shadowing
more experienced officials.
