More lap records fall
To round out the year of new lap records the club congratulates Matt Bass on setting a new lap record for the 250 International class
for the short (Club) circuit at Winton.
Racing at the Winton 300 as a support class arranged by Australian Superkart Events Matt set a new time of 56.1287 taking away the record set by Tony Rath
back in 2000, when Matt was only eight years old. The other totally amazing thing about this record it was only about the third time Matt has driven the kart.
