FOR three of Bundaberg's best drivers the pressure is building as the end of the CIK Stars Of Karting series gets closer. Kel Treseder, Troy Loeskow and Mason Barbera will compete at Newcastle this weekend in the second-last round of the year.

The results Loeskow and Treseder get will have a big bearing on who wins the championship their classes.

Driving in the KF2 class, Loeskow sits in first place and holds a 19-point lead over Nathan Tigani and Loeskow knows his advantage can be eroded quickly with a poor performance.

The 2013 series runner-up made a few spots up last year in the last few rounds and he knows how motivated the other drivers are to knock him off.

In KZ2 Treseder (253 points) goes into the round in fourth place behind series leader Joey Hanssen (350 points), Chris Hays (256 points) and David Sera (250 points). A good result could see him leapfrog Hays and Sera.

Barbera's first season in the elite KZ2 category has seen him learn a lot about himself as a driver. After a disastrous opening two rounds Barbara improved and banked 51 points at the round in Puckapunyal.

Karting fans can keep up with the action by logging on to speedcafe.com/kartinglive, the heats and finals will be broadcast live from Newcastle.
