SIX Griffith karters made the two and a half hour trip to Grenfell last weekend for the second round of the club championship, but it was well worth it as the Griffith members finished towards the front of the pack.
Ky Young took it to his competitors in the cadet 12s and set some new personal best times.
The youngster was unlucky to miss out on a podium with a fourth place finish.
In the TAG light class, James O’Callaghan took on some tough competition.
It looked like he had the measure of his competitors but tyre problems put him back to sixth.
Tag 125 light restricted saw the Wood brothers go head-to-head again as the boys continue to improve.
JR took the bragging rights with a second place finish while William was right behind in third.
Blake Snaidero and Guy Little were up against some top racers in the TAG 125 heavy restricted but the Griffith duo tested the other competitors.
Snaidero has really taken to his new class and drove incredibly well once again to claim second.
Little came out of retirement for the day and proved he hasn’t lost any of his speed to finish a creditable fifth.
Another local karter travelled to Geelong to compete in the second round of the Australian Championships.
Noah Sands competed in the KA4 junior class.
The junior driver had 38 other racers to compete with.
A crash in heat one put the karter on the back foot but he clawed his was back to finish just outside the top 10 in 11th.
The proud Griffith club sent a big congratulations to Noah on his efforts at the Australian meeting.
