Off and racing at Dalby Kart Club

AS SISTERS Georgia and Eden Rostron hit the track for their first race on the weekend, they were backed by a long line of kart racing blood.

The young racers are carrying on a family tradition, as their mother Desley Rostron and aunt Leesa Cunningham were part of a sister racing trio in the 1980s and '90s, and continue to race today.

Proudly wearing matching shirts, the 'sisterhood' team were among 78 karts racing at the Dalby Noise Summer Series round one on Saturday.

Commentator Kev 'the noise' Davies turned up the heat as racers of all skill levels took to the track.

The Queensland Vintage Karting club also visited the Dalby track on Saturday with members showing off their old-style karts in action under lights.

Michael Carlton and Glen Gray were among the vintage kart enthusiasts visiting from Casino.

Between them, they brought as many karts as their trailer could carry to the Dalby meeting, with models ranging from 1959 to 1962.

Mr Gray said go karts have evolved since his models, with improved steering accuracy and plastic exteriors on new karts.
