The bitumen at Bundaberg Kart Club is heating up this weekend as the Bundaberg 4SS Invasion takes place with 86 riders taking part.

Bundaberg Kart Club’s Shane Chung said Bundaberg 4SS Invasion has drawn competitors from around Queensland including Brisbane, Ipswich and Toowoomba, and he is hoping to see as many locals as possible trackside to show support.

“Not only have we got an impressive action-packed weekend, but we also have Todd Hazelwood a current SuperCar Driver coming along, and we will have local and Australian Champion Troy Loeskow here too,” Shane said.

Shane said the Bundaberg Region had produced a number of karting titleholders and events like Bundaberg 4SS Invasion could be a stepping stone for the up-and-coming champion.

Australian Karting KZ2 champion Troy Loeskow will be in his hometown of Bundaberg this weekend for Bundaberg 4SS Invasion.

“We have two current Australia karting champions that have come from the Bundaberg Region, Troy (Loeskow) and young Ky Burke,” he said.

“To have these two guys come up through the ranks here in Bundaberg shows what is possible.

“It’s pretty exciting but given the success that Bundaberg Kart Club has had with producing fantastic and successful young drivers we wanted to appeal to the local community too and see if we can get more locals involved too.” 

The two-day event will have 60 entrants in the four-stroke category, which Shane said was perfect for beginners like himself.

“I’ve only been part of the club for three months, I joined knowing we have this fantastic track just around the corner, and four-stroke is good for me as beginner,” he said.

“I’m hoping events like Bundaberg 4SS Invasion will draw in more people to take up the sport.

“The 4SS class is low maintenance, low cost and ideal for newbies.”

Shane said anyone interested in checking out karting or Bundaberg 4SS Invasion are welcome to head along to the Bundaberg Kart Club track at University Drive as gates open 8am Saturday and Sunday.
