2012 was a stellar year for Queensland Superkart racing particularly for Jason Smith, Dan Lewis and Bernie Walsh. Smith became the first Queenslander to win an Australian title since Russell Jamieson won the 125 cc title in 2006, and the first Queenslander to win the premiere 250 International class Australian championship in 20 years. The TJP Motorsport Anderson-DEA had the speed, the consistency and the nerve to claim the championship at the Queensland Raceway series finale beating two-time champion Darren Hossack and long-time championship front runner Gary Pegoraro.
It gives me great pleasure to release the sponsors of the Queensland Superkart Club Inc AASA series at Lakeside.
The events will be know as the 2013 Exclusive Auto Centre Superkart Challenge Series for Gearbox Superkarts, 2013 Exclusive Auto Centre Rotax Max Superkart Cup for Non Gearbox Superkarts and the M.W. Motorsport Stock Honda Cup for the Stock Honda Superkarts.
