May 31 2015 Club Day Day Races

The promise by the Bureau was for rain later in the day, but the morning started off mild and a little windy as they gathered for the May Club Day at Oakleigh. Then, before carbie session had been completed, the Bureau’s prediction proved accurate as rain started to sprinkle across the circuit, but by the time we began Qualifying the sun was streaming down, so it looked like being a busy day ahead for competitors adapting to the changing conditions.

Unfortunately, with no one available to do the track safety lights, I can only provide a summary of the racing as I was on double duty with starting and lights.

2015 Victorian State Kart Championships

Day 2 of the VSK Championship got going with a chilly start, a beautiful sunrise, and the promise of a good day ahead. We began with Heat 2 of Junior National Light – the report that follows is in class order.

Restricted 125 Light

Flood off to a great start as Winter went around at JSKC to lose 2nd place, Jordan Rae into 2nd as a result, then Brock Rae, but Chong got through on him to take 3rd by lap 5, meanwhile Flood was streaking away in the lead. Flood went on to take the win, while Chong was pressuring J. Rae for 2nd after working his way through following a shocker yesterday, and just failed to get past J. Rae as they crossed the line.

After a week of rain and gloomy weather, Saturday arrived bright and shiny to signal the start of the Oakleigh round of the 2015 Victorian State Kart Championships.

We completed all the First Heats, and Second Heats through to Clubman Heavy, so the rest of the report will be submitted tomorrow.

Restricted 125 Light

I was busy with flag lights while Heat 1 was run, and can only advise that pole man Brayden Flood took the win ahead of Bradley Winter and Jordan Rae.

Working Bee Saturday May 9 2015

There will be a working bee held from 2 pm this Saturday, May 9, 2015. The track and grounds require some maintenance leading up to round 3 of the VKC, which is to be held at OGKRC May 15 -17 2015.

The track will be closed during the working bee. The more helpers that come along, the quicker the tasks can be finished. It would be great to see some new faces at the working bee.
