Round 4 of the Victorian Superkart Club Series took place at Broadford on June 2nd, 2024. It was the second visit to the circuit in as many months for the Club, who have been one of only two 4 wheeled categories to race at the venue for a number of years, alongside the Hyper Racer X1’s of the Australian Drivers Championship. On the day 3 Non Gearbox (NGB) and 2 Gearbox classes were represented.


NGB Light sponsored by Marron Earthworx saw very close racing. Heat 1 saw Lucas Quattrocchi take the win from reigning National Champion Sanuja Perera and Russ Occhipinti, the 3 separated by less than 1 tenth of a second. The second heat saw Perera take the win closely followed by Occhipinti and Quattrrochi. Race 3 saw a first lap issue drop Occhipinti to the back. Perera got the win from Quattrocci and Hayden Veld, with Occhipinti fighting back to 5th. The final saw Perera take the Race win and with it the class victory from Quattrochi and Occhipinti.

NGB Heavy sponsored by OZ Design was a clean sweep for National Champion Colin McIntyre ahead of Alan Haynes who continues to impress as he crosses over from sprint to the long track discipline, with Jeremy Crust third just ahead of a steadily improving Linc Appledore in a strong 4th.

Competition was fierce amongst NGB Super Heavy sponsored by Dunlop Kartsport, with 4 different winners across the 4 races with Cameron Austen, Joe Brancati and Rod Clarke sharing the heat wins and Brendan Kloot turning around a slow start to the day to win the final. It was Austen who won the day however, never finishing out of the top 2 to finish ahead of Brancati and Clarke in the final points.

125 Open Gear Box sponsored by Woodgate Racing was dominated by Todd Gardner who took all 4 races. Lachlan Jay drove well all day with 3 second place results in the heats and a 3rd place in the final was enough to secure second for the day. Lee Filliponi worked through some issues during the day, and a second place in the final enabled him to get on the podium and finish 3rd for the day.

Stock Honda sponsored by Gersh Investment Partners is a controlled gearbox class and James Strah continued his impressive season with pole position and a heat 1 win ahead of the consistent Joe Brancati and Cameron Austen who were both getting plenty of track time running multiple classes. In heat 2 Strah spun on cold tyres and caught out an unlucky Brancati allowing Oliver Bonaccorso to get away for the win ahead of Austen. In heat 3 Strah took the win as Bonaccorso and Austen took their turn to DNF. Strah took his third win and the class victory in the final ahead of Bonaccorso and Brancati.

The Victorian Superkart Club will return to the track at Winton Motor Raceway on July 6th for round 5 of the VSKC Club series.
