THE Gippsland Go Kart Club opened its 2022 season at Tramway Park, Morwell.
The season started on Sunday, February 13 and on a 32-degree day with everyone starting the year on new tyres, the grip level was up and the lap times fast.
The new season also saw several new faces at the track, competing in their first race meeting.
Four drivers: Jamie Rowe, Ryan Wyhoon, Bryce Felmingham and Jordan Bantick, enjoyed a clean sweep of their respective categories, taking wins in all three eight-lap heats plus the 12-lap finals.
