Do you think you’re good enough? Well, have a go
DO YOU see yourself as the next Daniel Ricciardo, or a budding Craig Lowndes? Do you think piloting a go-kart is easy and don't understand what the fuss is about?
Well, the Bundaberg Kart Club has given you the chance to prove yourself and find out what skills are required to be at the front of the pack on August 9.
The club has enjoyed a strong increase in membership this year following successfully hosting the Queensland State Sprint Kart Championships last year, which pulled hundreds of drivers from across Australia and New Zealand, and there have been scores of motorsport fans who want to have a go.
Club president Richard Litzow said boys and girls can get into karting from the age of seven and it wasn't unusual for a couple of generations in the one family to be participating in the sport.
Litzow said the club had a reputation for breeding champions and was excited with the calibre of the new generation of drivers coming through the club who are currently carving their way through the ranks nationally.
Both juniors and seniors are welcome at the free come and try day which runs from 9-2pm on August 9. Helmets and race suits will be provided, however drivers are being encouraged to bring their own long pants, long sleeved shirts and must wear closed in shoes.
Club members will be instructing participants on the basics of karting before they are allowed on the track under controlled conditions. For more information call Litzow on 0400.052.038.
