elusive state title
THE Renmark Dirt Kart Club sent a handful of
its members to the South Australian state titles in
Lucindale late last month, with Josh Ryan providing
the highlight by claiming victory in the 100cc class.
No stranger to the podium at state title level, this
was Ryan’s first win after a number of second and
third place finishes in recent years.
Ben Nitschke was the only other club member to
finish on the podium, clinching third in the outlaw
class in just his first year of racing at that level.
The club’s next race meeting is scheduled for
Saturday, May 20 at 3.30pm.
