A NEW track and more experienced opposition was no match for Bundaberg and future national karting star Troy Loeskow at the weekend.

With action on the track cut short because of thunderstorms Loeskow took out the Central Queensland titles in the Tag 125 and Sportsman Lite categories.

Troy said he enjoyed his first trip to the Emerald circuit and the opportunity to just race one of Bundaberg's best drivers was a real thrill - let alone beating him.

"I really liked the track; it was smooth, wide and it had really fast corners which I enjoyed," Troy said.

"It was just good to be able to race Kel Treseder and John Grother which was good by itself. And I was glad to get the win."

The Emerald lay-out suited Troy and he made the most of the free-flowing track to reach 128kph on the main straight.
