2017 Austrans Victorian Country Series

Country Series Facebook Feed

In 2017 we've had karters come from as far and wide as NT and NZ.
As a bit of fun, we've knocked up a club points competition based on the 401 points score for the top 10 in each class

No surprise at the top - but great to see some of the small clubs punching above their weight - and a really strong presence from SA.

I'm pretty sure I managed to grab worst series presentation pic for the second year running 🙂 At least Aaron was smiling this time

Sooo...how do you like the Rotax compared to X30?

How many rounds did you do Brad Trott?
