Five Lights Grand final a blockbuster!

The weather, track, members and Orange turned it on to give us one of the best final rounds we’ve seen! Spirits were high from the outset.

The track resurfacing simply stunning and the clubs hospitality a treat 🙏 The weather perfect and the pubs not too bad either. 

A few team arrived with serious business in mind with a few Championship podium positions still undecided.

Racing on the Sunday was just short of 6 hours, super tight and generally tidy  throughout the day. When all said and done there can only be one winner, and no surprise was awarded to Trackside #37 making their return piloted by Chris Weir, Paul Marano, and Liam Ferry who also broke his old team mates lap record. In hot pursuit the might of the Buildline team with El Toro #97 runners up and their team mates Dynamite #27 under a second behind into 3rd. A brilliant performace in their first hit out with TEKA Stratco Racing #15 also taking 1st in A grade.

Finishing commendable 2nd in A grade and 5th outright Buildline #9 followed by their Championship rivals #54 ASR Trakka.

In the battle for B grade honours no surprise to see the super quick team of BMCM #29 take a dominant win ahead of ProFan #8 and Maverick #55.

When all said and done the Championship positions were decided for 2022

Phoenix rises again!

Great news for TEKA and all endurance karters that the popular chassis known as Phoenix, then Zenspeed, now Phoenix again is back in production. Now in the hands of Steve Cameron and co. the first chassis has come off the production line and looks and absolute class act (the welding quality insane)! Its debut was at Tamworth but kept reasonably quiet as the team tested and look for any gremlins. If you’d like to have a closer look, or are interested in a new roller or bare chassis keep an eye out for the wild new Phoenix livery!

Tamworth Liquid Clothing Round 7 – One of the best!!

After arriving to unprecedented rainfall and track flooding the TEKA community alongside Brodie from Tamworth kart track rallied and prepared the track for the conditions we may be faced with. The spirits could not be dampened, particularly with a great choice of pubs nearby to spend the Friday afternoon.
Strangely enough, although rain clouds never far away Sat morning was dry and warm, that was until race start.

With just minutes to go several teams made the change to wets as light rain continued to fall. As the flag dropped and #97, #27 & #18 bolted with #84 in tow and a race duration of only 1.5hrs it became a race of 3 clear strategies… Stick with wets, stick with slicks, and change from wets to slicks at the right time. Although the slicks struggled early at about the 3- – 40mins mark they were equalling wet tyre times although had some ground to make up. As the finish drew near it was clear that #54 who made a tyre change were storming toward the lead bringing #18 with them on the same strategy. #54 taking the win with #27 holding off #18 for 2nd after a 3 laps battle to the flag followed by #9.

Day 2 felt warmer again, competitors ready for anything. The same teams rocket off the start and dominate throughout the race with plenty of great clean racing right through the field. We didn’t see a safety kart all weekend. At the chequered flag #27 take the win followed by their team mates #97 and other championship contenders #84. A great race also by #81 dropped 1 place to 4th outright after suffering a post race MPT penalty.

A grade – #54 and #3 quick all weekend in 1st & 2nd followed by #9
B grade – with the quickest kart on the track late race and 6th outright #29 manage 1st followed by their championship rivals #41 and #86 into 3rd.

There remains a few Championship positions being fought into the final round at the newly resurfaced Orange, which is always a driver and spectator favourite

What a weekend, thank you to Liquid Clothing, well done all officials and members for one of the most action packed and memorable rounds of 2022!

SUTTON SURVEYORS Orange 8 Hour Recap

Over a week has passed since we signed off season 2019 at one of our favourites, Orange Kart Club.

When planning our calendar, we do our best to plan around the weather and avoid the colder destinations during winter. When we locked in Orange for our final round in November, you would think it’s safe to assume we’d be greeted by warm weather…. Never have we been so wrong. Scorching high temperatures of 13-14° on Friday and Saturday and a low of -2° on Saturday morning were the reality we faced. Ice like winds and even some rain on Friday afternoon made for far from comfortable spectating.

Palace Shakers Lithgow 444 Race Report

The penultimate round of the 2019 season took us to sunny Lithgow last Sunday, for a 444 lap sprint race at Combined Districts Kart Club.

To this point the season had been dominated by the factory Maverick Karts, notably #58 claiming the first five races of the season including the State Title, while more recently Sister kart #59 took two from two victories at Port Macquarie. Among that, one victory to Preston Hire 15 at Grenfell was the only blemish on the Maverick record.

Once upon a time there lived an evil Ogre in a ditch beside the Port Macquarie hairpin. In a fit of rage, he cast a curse over whoever plugged into his track timing loop. The curse lasted for many years until in rode a handsome knight in his lowered white steed. The handsome knight banished the evil Ogre, lifting the curse and freeing the timing loop for all to enjoy its lap counting brilliance.
