The Great Southern Kart Club kicked off its 2021 season earlier this month as 81 drivers hit the track for the March club day.

There were plenty of keen dirt karters racing for the first win of the year on March 6.

Alex Crofts started the season the same way he ended last year, by taking victory over Bodi Walton and Rhys Jilley in the junior light class.

In the junior heavy class, there was plenty of action and close contests as Josh Thompson won over Elissa Morton and Diesel Glazebrook.

The KT lights class was as competitive as ever with 11 nominations but it was Sally McDougall who finished first from Tyler McQuilkin and Ryan Crofts.

In the KT medium/heavy class it was Brandon Bain who won bragging rights from Bree-ann Glazebrook and Josh Dale.

The 125 lights class was the biggest of the day with 15 drivers hitting the track and Nathan Walton emerged victorious from Gary Joyce and Nathan Miller.

The 125 heavy class was fought out between 10 drivers and it was Cooper Davis who proved to be the one to beat, taking the win from Craig Douglas and Brad Preen.

The victor in the 100 open class was Hayley Morton with Wayne Hilgert and Aron Sharp rounding out the podium.

Though the outlaws class was light on numbers this time, there were still some good battles between the six drivers nominated.

Walton took the victory ahead of Sharp and Gareth Keeling.

The next scheduled meeting is on April 3.
