The 125cc Gearbox class has been the most popular with no less than 13 different participants during 2017. These 3 however have been regulars at the front all season long. Taking home 3rd place in his first time at Lakeside was Rocket Rod Tait in his Honda powered Stockman MR2. 2nd place Phil Silcock in his Honda powered Avoig Elise. Regaining the form that had seen him dominate the championship early was Sam McFerran in his Honda powered BRM

Points table updated after Round 4 of the prestigious 2017 Queensland Superkart Series. Peter Nuske looks like being clear winner for the for the Club Championship but he isn't quite there yet. The class champions are still being sorted and the next round at Lakeside November 18 - 19 will be vital to all competitors to stamp their authority on their category.
The 2017 Pacific Superkart Challenge has been run and won!! Taking out the Pole Position Awards were:
Rotax Light: Dan Lewis
Rotax Heavy: Nicholas Marshall
85cc Gearbox: Keith Taylor
Class winners for the weekend were:
Rotax Light: Peter Nuske
Rotax Heavy: Nicholas Marshall
85xx Gearbox: Cameron Moxley
With just 1 round remaining things are heading up in the chase to be class champion. Be sure to stay tuned for the final round and watch how it all unfolds!!
The 85cc Class, Cameron Moxley showed a mix of speed and reliability to take the class win from Life time member Chryss Jamieson and new boy on the block Keith Taylor had some small issues which prevented him capitalising on his pole position
125cc Rotax Heavy- Nicholas Marshall may have been the only heavy on the weekend but that didn't stop him racing hard and showing some of the lighter guys how it's done.
125cc Rotax Light- These guys were at it all weekend long with Peter Nuske and Dan Lewis swapping positions nearly every lap of every race. In the end it was Peter Nuske who got the better of his team mate forcing Dan to settle for 2nd. 3rd was Allan Parker from over the border showing us he's no slouch always being hot on the heels of the lead 2 ready to pounce if either made an error.
With 4 Superkart lap records falling at this event, the competition was tough. Was great to have some southern competitors at the meeting. For more information see the club facebook site https://www.facebook.com/QLDSUPERKART/
