Sapphire Speedway karting clash

SAPPHIRE Speedway will play host to a round of the NSW Speedway Kart Titles tomorrow. 

Organisers said more than 40 karts will take place across the various divisions from junior rookie for 10 to 12-year-olds, standard, modified, outlaw and 125cc kart classes. 

The speedway is delighted to welcome entrants from all over the country for the round including drivers from Victoria, Queensland other parts of NSW and one eager driver all the way from the Northern Territory. 

Organisers said despite the local contingent of drivers making up only a portion of the field, locals were among the best on show, with place-getters from last year’s titles as well as some of the Australian title holders in action across the different divisions. 

Dylan Goodger from Manyana took out first place in the 125cc and the standard classes last year, while Bega driver Stephen Robertson had a very busy time in three divisions. 

Robertson came first in the outlaw class and third in the modified class, but succumbed to engine problems in standard class. 

Meanwhile, Conjola’s Nev Britten took out second place in the modified division last year and will be looking to back up his performance tomorrow. 

Organisers hope the strong contingent of local racers will continue their winning form to show drivers from around the country what the Far South Coast has to offer in tomorrow’s event. 

Racing starts tomorrow at 12.30pm with gates open at 10am for spectators.
