Superkart Photos - Steve Crossman

Have a look through these pics of the Superkarts Nationals at Manfield the other weekend. Number 43 is Steve Crossman! (pics taken by my son).

Some of those look like a serious bit of kit. What's the speed they get to down the front straight?

At Manfield - about 220Km/hr, Steve could say for sure.

Nice pics :)

One of the last kart meetings I did was Superkart nationals at Taupo, about 6 years ago..

Not sure on exact top speed of the 250s, but heading down the back straight at 130 in my 100cc KT, they would pass my like i was standing still..

Did you get any KT's at Nationals this year? They may not look as fun as a shifter, but get 5-6 of them bump drafting around the track, it gets pretty exciting. :D

No - no KT100s this year. Just the Rotax's, the Nationals (125's and 250s, not full bodywork) and the Internationals. Rotax has really taken over from the KT's at the moment, seems to go in cycles .... until something like the X30 (direct competitor) gets into NZ.
