Bunbury boy wins 2018 Australian Dirt Kart Nationals

The last weekend in September saw the 2018 Australian Dirt Kart Nationals held at the Great Southern Kart club in Wagin.

Two hundred and eighty-eight competitors from all over the country raced over three massive days to see who would be crowned best in Australia.

Joel Ettridge represented the Polylink Racing Team along with Daniel Coleman and Aron Sharp.

Ettridge had a ripper weekend on the track.

Taking out first place in Outlaws, he was able to claim the title of Australian No. 1.

Joel also took out third place in KT Twins and 100 Open as well as sixth place in KT Mediums. 

Daniel Coleman and Aron Sharp gave it their all out on the track with some fantastic racing, but unfortunately weren’t able to make it onto the podium.

Ettridge’s win comes after competing both in the Northern Territory and South Australian 2018 title’s, claiming first place plates in both.
