A gathering of more than 20 Superkart drivers will compete for the coveted Steve Aaron Memorial Trophy this Sunday, 6 September, as part of Round 4 of the MRA (Motor Racing Australia) Series.

Aaron was a talented young driver whose life was tragically cut short in a Superkart crash at the now-defunct Amaroo Park circuit in 1980, and the trophy is awarded annually in his honour. This Sunday, it will be presented to the driver who scores the most points over the four races, with a large contingent of both gearbox and non-gearbox class karts set to vie for honours.

After a thrilling display at their Nationals four weeks ago, the Mazda MX5s return for four sprint races, with newly-crowned National Champion Luke Otten heading into the weekend as the firm favourite. His main opposition is likely to come from David Stone, Cameron White and Scott Walker.

The NSW Excel Racing Series has produced close and exciting racing all year, which is set to continue this weekend with the most prominent front-runners likely to include Daniel Smith, Dean Chapman, Adam Bryant and Emily Duggan.

The Super TT (Super Tin Tops) category will provide its typically eclectic mixture of cars, including three Triumphs of Mark Morsillo, Elliot Wright and Howard Glynn, Mitsubishi Evo X of Lee Evans and VS Commodore Cup car of Adam Lloyd. Mixed into the Super TT races will be a collection of Minis including Linda Devlin, Tom Browell and Hans Riehs.

Regularity rounds out the busy day’s schedule, which includes plenty of track time for all categories.

Gates open at 7:00am on Sunday and admission is free for all spectators.
