"Damn right it's too fast At Oakleigh yesterday Cadet 9's were doing low 44's. Thats mid to front of field for 2015 Junior National Light but with kids as young as 6yo (practice) or 7yo (racing). I believe Cadet 12's were in high…"

Bruce Allan replied to David Kerwood's discussion New tyres for all classes
"Large fields are going to be a challenge in 2016 I think. Here we are 1 1/2 weeks from the very popular Junior Top Guns (OGKRC) and there are 4 entries only in each JNL and JNL C&P. And 3 entrants have entered both meaning at this stage a total…"

Bruce Allan replied to David Kerwood's discussion New tyres for all classes
"I agree with many of the posts re cost. However I think a bigger issue is how much faster entry level class laptimes are going to be. We did pre Xmas testing of Bridgestones in JNL with my son and his mate. Both are new to JNL (shifted up from…"

"I think what they have done is change the rule so all drivers must progress at the same age. The current rule sees some drivers move up at age 13 and others at 13 years and 11 months, depending on when their birthday falls in the calendar year."

"Our plan too was to run Rookies till 13 too. We did not see this coming, instead of two full years in Rookies we suddenly only get one before moving up ;("

"Hi Jim. Thanks for the words of wisdom and encouragement. You are probably right that Hamish is fast enough for his first oakleigh Club day. He practiced today and hit sub 51's regularly with a tired motor, worn tyres and a cooling track. So we…"

Jim Lane replied to Bruce Allan's discussion Oakleigh Rookie Kart Set Up - Help please
"Hi Bruce,   50 second laptimes for a Rookie at Oakleigh after 6 practice sessions is all right, and plenty fast enough to do the clubday. Most of the gains between where you are and the 46's (I think this is still considered a…"
