There’s good news for local go karters with action to resume in the North West this weekend.
Mount Isa karters will return to the Lagoon Park Raceway complex this Sunday April 23.
There they will do battle in Round 2 of the Mount Isa Isuzu Ute Championships in a day of intense racing action.
The karters return refreshed after a four week break since the last meeting and will enjoy the slightly cooler conditions.
A spokesperson for the local club said karters have had a chance to go away and analyse their karts.
“They’ll be looking for what worked well and what didn’t and will be keen to apply that knowledge this weekend,” the spokesperson said.
The first class to hit the track at Lagoon Park Raceway will be the Cadets 12 class.

Myles Campbell will head into the weekend as the early favourite after taking the win last time out.
Once again Tara Sidnell will be the one to watch out for in the KA4 Junior category.
Elder sibling Allisa is looking like the favourite in the KA3 Senior Light class heading into the weekend.
Also looking to improve his standings after narrowly missing out on the top spot of the podium last time out is Trevor Hollyman.
Hollyman will be looking to go one step better as he attempts to take out the KA3 Senior Medium Class.
In what is expected to be the biggest event of the day the fight for the top spot is going to be fierce with Anthony Rowsell, Scott Geary Louis Lowe and Brett Twyford all looking like a good bet for the win.
But all eyes will than have to turn to look at the fastest Class of the day which will be the TAG 125 Class.
Mark Bond is likely to be the favourite in the TAG 125 Class and he will be looking to build on the momentum from his last win.
Bond will have plenty of company chasing a spot on the podium as he battles it out up front with fellow competitors Kevin Rowsell and Adam Chirio.
Racing will kick off at 11am on Sunday at Lagoon Park Raceway.
The racetrack can be found at Bendall Drive just off the southern end of Duchess Road.
Entry is free and canteen facilities are available, with closed in footwear enabling access to the pits.
The club says karting is a sport for all ages.
“Anyone who is looking to get involved in the sport is encouraged to head down to the track,” the club said.
“There you can have a look around and also have a chat with the members to find out more information.”
