Congratulations to Harrison Mitchell in Year 12 on his 10th placing in Round 1 (Friday 3 – Sunday 5 March) of the Australian Kart Championships in Monarto, South Australia. Harrison raced across 5 races, accumulating points that would determine the overall round result. He currently races in the Senior division (16 and above) of the X30 (highest level in Australian Karting), with 52 competitors in the division. The highlight of the weekend for Harry was his 3rd placing in the 4th race (pre-final). Unfortunately, he was bumped out of contention at the first corner in the Final and battled mechanical issues for the remainder of the race. However, his consistency across the weekend saw him gain a Top 10 finish.
