More Bumper Fields for Junior Sprints

The Slideways Junior Racing Series continued to turn on the action, with bumper fields once again facing the starter at Slideways Go Karting World Pimpama.

As always, the field were split into Cadets (ages 7-11) and Juniors (ages 12-15), with the line up for the three ten-minute races determined by a random grid draw for race one, which was inverted for race two, with combined points setting the line-up for the finale.

One further event remains on the Junior racing calendar, scheduled for the normal track direction on Sunday December 2, with early bird entries receiving a free bonus practice session.

In other racing, the Slideways Enduro Series has two rounds remaining, set down for this Wednesday night, and Friday December 7, with more details on all of our racing events available at the Slideways Public Race Days page.

In other Slideways Go Karting World activities, the Slideways Karting Academy provides personalised tuition, with the aim of lowering lap times and improving race craft.

Sessions are held weekly, with further details available from the Karting Academy website.
