Weekend of speed for kart youngsters
NINETY-FIVE young drivers aged 7 to 15 contested the Young Guns meeting at the Lismore Kart Club track.
Entries came from as far afield as Gladstone and Sydney, with trophies and sponsor products presented to the top five drivers in each class during the presentation at the Italo-Australian Club.
The Cadet 12 class attracted the largest field of the meet with 24 drivers.
A new control tower, built from a grant through the Lismore City Council, was officially opened by mayor Isaac Smith.
The council's general manager Gary Murphy and councillor Gianpiero Battista also attended.
Major sponsors of the Young Guns titles included Supercheap Lismore and Ballina, and Karting Direct from Sydney.
