Brodie Evans wins McDonalds Young Guns

McDonalds


Brodie Evans has joined a long list of some of the best Junior drivers in Tasmania by winning his first McDonalds Young Guns Title at the Launceston Kart Club.
The McDonalds Young Guns has been held continuously since 1998 and has been won by some of the states best drivers over that time. The format of a one off 20 lap race at a combined weight of 130kg and a randomly drawn grid normally ensures the front rows try and make a break away for the win whilst the front runners that draw rearward grid positions try and get through to the front as quickly as possible. This year was no exception with the title going right down to the wire.
 
With the club opting to offer the majority of the senior classes at a pro weight it allowed drivers to race against some new faces and tackle some fresh challengers.

Champions Decided As Wild Weather Strikes At The North Western Kart Club Titles

After three rounds of perfect weather the typically unpredictable Tasmanian weather struck back and drivers were forced to break out the wet weather gear for the fourth and final round of the 2013 Tasmanian Statewide Series and North Western Kart Club Titles held on the 23rd and 24th of March at the Highclere Circuit. Although the track was wet for the majority of racing there were times when the track dried enough to return to slick tyres and the majority of the finals were held in these conditions. These conditions proved to be a help for some and a hindrance for others in their quest for one of the twelve Tasmanian Titles up for grabs. Mitchel Evans had an excellent series taking out two titles, TAG Light and Clubman Heavy. A truly outstanding achievement by the Hobartian and his number one pit crew, father Steve. There were also seven drivers who broke through to record their first Tasmanian Title which was a fantastic result.

Twelve New Club Champions Crowned at Launceston Kart Club Titles

Round 3 Of The 2013 Tasmanian Statewide Series


The third round of the 2013 Tasmanian Statewide Series proved to be a complete contrast to the previous round with only three drivers scoring clean sweeps and most classes seeing more than one winner during the heats. The weekend’s results have really shaken up the series standings with some drivers putting themselves into unassailable positions in the championship whilst others saw their points advantage disappear. Racing was held in perfect conditions with the weather providing two warm, sunny days and the Launceston Kart Club complex once again showing why it’s amongst the best in the country.
