Great preparation by the Gladstone Club
The Gladstone Kart Club needs to be congratulated on their dedication and hard work in the lead up to this weekend’s KTEQ Rentals Queensland Karting Championships. The tireless work by the committee and a dedicated band of members ensured that the event ran very efficiently all weekend.

Karts versus snake
Drivers in the Junior Rotax final got more than what they bargained for when a King Brown snake decided to make it’s way onto the circuit over the closing stages of the race.

Race leader, and eventual winner, Brock Plumb didn’t know which way to go when he came across the first time – so he jumped the kerb and went over it. Jordan Boys, who was running several placed behind, landed the knockout blow several seconds later.

Preparing for Darwin
For may of the competitors, mechanics and supporters the National Championships is Darwin are still a long way away in their mind. However, those in attendance at Gladstone this weekend have got a headstart in terms of preparation off the track. With mosquitoes and sand flies in frequent attendance, the insect repellant and anti-histamines were a high priority at this weekend’s event. Word is that the Bushman ‘Heavy Duty’ is the winning formula.
