The Australian Summer Series wrapped up with a weekend of hot action at the Warwick Kart Club in Queensland across the weekend.
Female youngsters star
Charlotte Page was the pacesetter in KA3 Junior Heavy to became one of two female gold medallists today with Trent Newton finishing second and Zachary Turner awarded the bronze medal.
The other female winner was in Cadet 12 with Lana Flack adding to her haul of major race wins. Although leading the early phase of the race, it wasn’t clear cut until towards the end when she slipped down the order and then had to fight through to take the win over Roman Krutil and Cooper Folley.
Lemasurier continues to rise
Mika Lemasurier took out the ROK GP category in front of Tyler Howard and South Australian Jacob Dowson, who was elevated to the podium after Ryan McMillan was the recipient of a penalty for a driving infringement.
Campbell takes dominant win
The race of the day came in KA3 Junior when multiple drivers were in with the shot of taking the 11 minute plus one lap feature race. Ultimately, while the fight continued for second and third, Hamish Campbell snuck away for a dominant win, while Loclan Hennock left it until the final lap to get himself into second over Kobe McInerney
McInerney returns to the top spot
New South Welshman Kobe McInerney made a triumphant return to national racing in KA3 Junior Light. Kobe has been on the sidelines for a number of months after a freak mountain bike accident saw him sidelined for several months earlier in the year. McInerney took the victory by 0.1 of a second from Loclan Hennock – who backed up Saturday’s second position with another silver medal.
Cohen claims Gold
After a technical problem prevented him from starting the Gearbox Feature race on Saturday, Reece Cohen made amends and took a narrow victory in today’s finale. He was pushed the entire way by Saturday gold medallist, Troy Loeskow. Tyler Everingham – who finished this year’s Bathurst 1000 in 18th position alongside Declan Fraser for Tickford Racing – made a successful return to kart racing, collecting third position in the Gearbox final.
Macmillan makes it to the top step
Ryan Macmillan put together a complete performance in taking out the ROK GP category. Macmillan was able to get away from pole position and was not headed during the 11 minute Feature Race, taking the win by a 3.744 second margin. Tyler Howard backed up a Sprint Race win this morning with a hard fought second place and Jacob Dowson completed the Dee Vine Estates Podium.
Souslin-Harlow holds on in X30
Jackson Souslin-Harlow hung on in X30 Heavy having expended the tyres throughout the course of the weekend. Souslin-Harlow used his vast experience to keep Daniel Brown behind him. Brown kept the Sydney-sider honest by pushing him right through to the drop of the chequered flag, the margin of victory just 0.111. Zac Raddatz was shuffled to the rear of the field in the early stages – however was able to charge back through to finish third.
