The fastest Superkart drivers from around Australia will be congregating at the Paynter Dixon Sydney MasterBlast for the second and final round of the 2019 Superkarts Australia Nationals Series. There will be no shortage of on track action as drivers battle for championship glory in front of their biggest crowd in over a decade.
Defending 250 International champion llya Harpas will be looking to win his fourth title in succession but will have to fight hard against arch nemesis and veteran Gary Pegoraro as both drivers go into the race weekend sitting equal first on points. They will have plenty of competition from drivers such as Matt Bass, the young Victorian sitting third overall, and New Zealander Anton Stevens who has had his fair share of success at the Sydney Motorsport Park Circuit over the years.
The 250 National category will be a race of the elder statesmen vs the young newcomers with John Dunn and John Pellicano attempting to hold off Josh Miller. John Dunn will be looking to claim his first ever SKA Nationals title at his home circuit.
The 125 gearbox category will be the most hotly contested category of all with five or more drivers capable of winning races. Impressive fourteen-year-old youngster Blake Purdie from South Australia will look to consolidate his championship lead by finishing consistently at the front, whilst the two race winners so far this year, Lee Vella and Nicholas Schembri, will be ones to watch during the weekend. Local Sydney drivers will also be keen to register a good result with Adam Cogger a real threat for a race win, and Paul Campbell the reigning champion sure to be in contention at his home circuit.
If the racing in the past is anything to go by, the Superkarts will be a category not to be missed, providing one of the purest racing spectacles available in motorsport today.
Group N is a major crowd attraction, with cars that truly represent the Golden era of Motor racing, and has been at the forefront of the Muscle Car Masters now the Master Blast since the conception of the of the race in 2005..
