Three new lap records were set during Round four of the club series on May 18.

 

The first went to Brad Tremain in the 125cc Open class setting a 0:59.8798 in race one.

During the day both Brad and previous lap record holder Nick Schembri went below Nick's previous record of 1:00.460.

 

The second by Sanuja Perera (Sunny) during race three setting a 1:02.0280 almost three years to the day his team mate Russ Occhipinti set the previous best.

 

The third record set was by Junior driver Lucas Quattrochchi setting a 1:07.4011 in Race 4. Our other Junior James Strah also dipped below the old record during the day

Here are some of the viewer comments:

Wow those things are fast...Great footage man...Love those dual carbs. 

Great footage, You guys are hardcore racers. All respect to you. I think Superkarts are the heaviest form of racing. Even more so then F1's. 

Bass rocks!!
It's scary just watching it - great footage.
Yep those carbies add to the effect.
Keep up the good work guys
