Just under 200 drivers across 13 classes competed at Round 3 of the 2017 Austrans Victorian Country Series held at the Portland and District Kart Club at the weekend, with some 30 South Australian competitors coming across the border to compete, along with Cadet 9 driver #16 Bodhi Stevens and his team putting in a great effort to make the journey from Darwin, NT.

The rain that hit the track for practice on Saturday held off for the drivers on Sunday, which lead to some close and competitive races throughout the day.

Some highlights from the days racing included Rochester Kart Club driver #2 Billy Westereld backing up his red plate victory at the Australasian Kart Titles last weekend, taking 1st in the TaG 125 Restricted Medium class ahead of Ballarat Kart Club driver #4 Anthony Warner and Go-Kart Club of Victoria driver #57 James Stewart.

#94 Kobi Williams (Oakleigh) drove through the field after finishing 5th in heats 1 and 2 to go on to take 1st in the final of KA4 Junior Light ahead of local Portland driver #25 Corey Herbertson and Ballarat’s #31 Jaxson Cox.

In the KA3 Senior Light class South Australian competitor #14 Nikki Watson put in a great drive across the day to take 3rd behind #37 Jack Bell (Oakleigh) 1st and #72 Toby Pope (GKCV) 2nd who were both coming off strong runs at the Vic Kart Championship.

#20 Remo Luciani (Wimmera Kart Club) took a clean sweep of the KA3 Senior Medium class ahead of #7 Christopher Thomas (Oakleigh Go-Kart Racing Club) and fellow Wimmera driver #19 Alex Baker.

Geelong Kart Club drivers #66 Will Harper 1st, #92 Matthew Domaschenz 2nd, and #82 Corbin Bailey 3rd took a clean sweep of the placings in the Cadet 12 class.

#9 Nathan Williams (GKCV) continued his winning form from the Vic Kart Champ with victory in the KA4 Junior Heavy class ahead of South Australian drivers #70 Aaron Oliver (SGKC) and #99 Adam Jr Slattery.

Warrnambool’s #94 Joseph Clough took 1st in the TaG 125 Restricted Light class ahead of Australasian Kart Titles red plate winner #7 Gerry Westerveld with Ballarat’s #33 Alexander Barallon 3rd.

Local Portland drivers #3 Adam and #4 Scott King took 1st and 2nd in the TaG 125 Heavy class ahead of Geelong's #54 Aaron Hindle.

In the KA3 Junior class #95 Nathan Williams (GKCV) backed up his 1st place in the KA4 Junior class by also claiming victory in the KA3 Junior class ahead of Geelong #90 Ethan Church and Oakleigh’s #41 Marty Wright.

#72 Toby Pope (GKCV) backed up his 2nd place in the KA3 Senior Light class taking a clean sweep of the TaG 125 Light class ahead of local driver #9 Jordan Rae and Hamilton driver #15 Harley Benson.

South West Kart Club driver #21 Rusty Ponting continued his hot form after winning the 1st Round of the Vic Kart Championship in the Cadet 9 class by also winning at Portland, ahead of #94 Cadel Ambrose (Oakleigh/Eastern Lions) with Geelong’s #36 Thomas Schmidt also backing up his great 3rd result at the Vic Kart Championship with 3rd at Portland.

Hamilton driver #92 Ronald Taylor took a clean sweep of the TaG 125 Restricted Masters class, with Wimmera’s #11 Leon Forrest 2nd and Hamilton’s #55 Andrew Stubbs in 3rd.

In the TaG 125 Restricted Heavy class #46 Nathan Van Es (Geelong Kart Club) also took a clean sweep of the day with 1st in all races, ahead of #13 Billy Askew (Warrnambool Kart Club) and South Australia’s #51 Andrew Harvey (Mount Gambier Kart Club).

With Round 3 now completed we are now only at the half way point of the 2017 series, with 3 exciting rounds of racing still to come and plenty of opportunities for drivers to make a late series charge back up the overall series points leaderboard!

Round 5 at Hamilton Kart Club on Septemeber 10th
Round 6 at Warrnambool Kart Club on October 14th and 15th

A huge thanks to the People who gave a hand on Sunday for the working bee, good to see new members on board helping the club out, very appreciated! Be good to see more members helping keep the track tidy, if the track isn't maintained by the members and kept tidy imagine what a mess it would be, these working bees are there for this reason so we can all race and use the track!!
A huge thanks to Heath for a surprise BBQ.
