The Griffiths Report October Club Day 2016

A beautiful sunny Spring day for Oakleigh’s October Club Day – a Saturday day/night affair with the promise of a clear night ahead. Numbers a bit down, perhaps with the Melbourne Cup Day “long weekend” so many people seem to take these days, but for those that turned up, a perfect day. Once Qualifying was completed we got racing underway.

From there on Marshall extended his lead and took the chequered flag ahead of Fusinato who got past Ceravolo.

Heat 2 and Marshall leads them away, Fusinato and Ceravolo behind him with Hewett quickly up to 4th after his Heat 1 DNF. By Lap 3 these 4 had bunched up and Fusinato and Ceravolo were putting on a show of dicing, then Hewett got on the back of Ceravolo but he was not proving easy to pass. So in the end they crossed the line in this order: Marshall, Fusinato, Ceravolo and Hewett. Continue reading

The Griffiths Report September Club Day 2016

September Club Day at Oakleigh dawned sunny and a bit windy but evolved into a fine day for racing. Numbers were a little down, maybe affected by the Australian Kart Championships being run at GKCV’s Todd Rd circuit in Port Melbourne, but those who turned up at Oakleigh had, for the most part, a good day’s racing. I see that a couple of ex Oakleigh racers triumphed at Todd Rd too, with Dave Sera taking out national Title #18, this time in KZ2, and Matt Mclean who also turned many laps at Oakleigh as a Junior taking the KA3 title – well done to both of them (and anyone else I missed!).

Thanks to Andrew from AKD Photography who again turned up to provide pics for this month’s meeting, see his work at  www.akdphotos.com and grab a shot of yourself or your pilot.
