Over the Christmas New Years break, Morgan Park Raceway http://morganparkraceway.com.au/ was being transformed with a total resurface of the race track. Racing has been suspended for a couple of months to let the surface cure. A flat smooth Morgan Park is a great Superkart track. Look forward to going back there in the near future.
Attached are some great videos from Le Mans France in 1984. Racing is on the Circuit Bugatti which is the permanent road racing course which turns right after going under the Dunlop Bridge. Unlike the 24 Hours of Le Mans Sports Car endurance race which is on Circuit de la Sarthe which goes straight ahead down to the public roads.

The 2016 Superkart Series, proudly sponsored for another year by Motorsportzone.com.au has been run and won with the Trophy Presentation Gala held at the beautiful Mt Coot-ha restaurant on Saturday night the 26th of November. There were over $1000 of raffle prizes to be won, thanks to generous donations from Zahl 1 Karting, Lowes Morayfield and from Nutzz with several people taking home more than one prize. Nutzz also donated to each person there on the night a bottle of their Nuttzz Macadamia Liqueur and Caramel flavoured Macadamia Liqueur. This a new product and to find out more about it, go to www.nutzz.com.
The 125cc Rotax Light class was hotly contested all year with 2015 Class runner up Carmelo Bonaventure hoping to go one better, but veteran Peter Nuske wasn’t going to let him have it all his own way . These two were never separated by more than a few karts lengths all season and when Michael Gagie joined them after the first two rounds, he got straight on to the pace and mixed it up with them, creating some brilliant racing and they drafted 3 wide to the line on many occasions. Peter Nuske took the top spot from Carmelo Bonaventure with new comer Michael Gagie rounding out the podium in third place. Peter Nuske also took our Club Champion.
The 125cc Rotax Heavy class was a little light (pardon the pun) for competitors this year but that didn’t stop them mixing it up with the Lighter guys. Nicholas Marshall was the top dog in this class from Richard Murtagh and Brandon Stillwell, a ring in from South Australia, in third.
