Well done Ando - I tried shooting karts once, a lot more tricky than it looks. Think #1 wins this set, would have been #3 if you had just managed to 'get the eyes'

Thanks ,

I think you gotta shoot karts from down low,...like kneeling on one knee,....
that or be vertically challenged like me..!!

Got a couple with one wheel off the deck too, really starting to look for better angles & less cluttered backgrounds....

Good work Ando.

What class did you race? I used to run Clubman Light in the mid '90's in Victoria.....then Clubman Medium.....then Clubman heavy.....Seeing a pattern here? ;-)a


Currently just a P&S, but watch this space.

I started in 1988 in Clubman light with a Sprinter.
Then ran Club Light with weight to go to heavy with an AX5
Then Clubman Heavy with no weight witha PCR, then a couple of Omegas.
Then got a Rotax on a beautiful Omega ... ran that for 2 yrs with no weight.
Retired in 2001...
I see n understand the pattern....perfectly..

Yet no matter the class, it's always a blast. :)

I started on a Speed RS2000 chassis. A load of @*&% that wanted to spin every time I jumped on the brakes. Then upgraded to an Allkart. Talk about the difference a decent chassis makes. Went from the midfield in Div2 to the pointy end of Div1.
