The annual ladies only race meeting is over for 2016 . Combined District kart club along with sponsor Zig Zag motel conducted the 10th running of the event in fine warm

weather over the 23 and 24 of January 2016. The meeting got underway with photo session and then followed by outstanding rendition of our national anthem sung by Emily Moore the daughter of former National class Champion driver Linda Moore.

Although numbers were down from previous years the entrants were from all over

Australia from north Queensland to Hobart.

Ladies competed in 10 classes for the chance at winning the “Pink Plate” We saw the biggest fields in KA4 Junior Light and Heavy. The racing in these classes in particular was fair and intense with outstanding performances from Sharnay Seal and Elise Raddatz with ladies 3Sharnay taking out the heavy division and Elise the light division.  In the senior division it was great to see that CDKC local Courtney Becker dominated taking home the Pink plate in KA 3 Light

In addition Sharnay took out the Nicole Franks memorial due to here outstanding

consistent performance over the weekend. This award is in memory of a female racer who sadly lost her life at an event some years ago.

On the Saturday night Maddison Hill was crowned the 2016 Miss Kartingladies 2016 1 Charity Princess. Maddison raised over $8,000 for the National Breast Cancer Research foundation.

The club would like to say a special thank you to Linda Moore former racers for her wonderful speech about her experience with Breast Cancer. Also to Paul Giuntini and Craig Harradine for doing a fantastic job at the charity auction where a further $2,000 was raised for this great cause.


The club will be reviewing the format for the future and will be looking to confirm the date as soon as possible so that everyone can start planning.
