Racers, teams, and spectators will soon descend upon Bunbury for the 2018 Western Australia Karting Championships.
Around 1000 people are expected to visit the Bunbury City Kart Club from September 22 to 24 for some electrifying go-kart racing action.
Organisers anticipate more than 200 go-karts, driven by some of the state’s best racers, will hit the track throughout the event’s duration.
Bunbury City Kart Club president Mick Kenny said they were thrilled to be hosting such an esteemed event.
“It’s not only good for our club but also for the city, because there will be around 1000 people coming down. It’s just good for everybody,” he said
“As a club we’ll do really well from it through our canteen during the day, but the city will get a boost later on.
“It’s second to none – it’s putting us out there and hopefully we might get some new members out of it.”
City of Bunbury Mayor Gary Brennan said the event signified the city’s dedication to sport and recreation.
“It’s being held prior to the school holidays, so that will bring a lot of people to Bunbury and the South West,” he said.
“It’s a great facility and adds to our diversity regarding sport in the region.”
