A single point separates the top teams in the Slideways Go Karting World Enduro Series, which concludes this Sunday with the eligible winning team on their way to Sydney to take on the best hire kart racers in Australia.
The grand prize includes airfares to Sydney, transport, accommodation, entry in the Pepsi Max National Hire Kart Challenge at FastLane Karting, as well as tickets to the Supercars Sydney 500, the last ever event to be held on the streets of Sydney Olympic Park.
Heading into the event, TSR Australia leads the series pointscore on 57 points, with Global Action Photography currently sitting on 56, with a total of 40 points still on offer.
TSR Australia started the series in fine form, with a pair of race victories from the opening two encounters, while Global Action Photography have been quietly improving throughout, with a third place in the opening race followed up by a second place effort, and finally victory at the most recent round.
Also in with a mathematical chance of claiming the title are 3 Stooges, Rogue Racing, Oz Jap Performance, The Muppets and Race Condition.
The format for the Enduro race day sees all three drivers from each team take part in one of the three 10 minute qualifying sessions, before the 65 minute race, containing two compulsory driver change pit stops.
The grid will once again be determined by the qualifying times from the nominated starting driver for each team.
The event will once again count towards Sodi World Series Endurance Cup, which this year saw TSR Australia head to France for the World Finals.
Prior to the event, all of the karts will be benchmark tested, ensuring parity throughout the field.
At the third Enduro round, TSR Australia picked up the fastest lap of the race with a 43.335, ahead of Rogue Racing 43.366, then Global Action Photography 43.367, 3 Stooges with a 43.468, The Muppets 43.425, GT Academy 43.702, Race Condition 44.214, Multi 21 44.507, Shed 39 44.551 and The Newy Crew 44.564.
Remarkably, that means that only 0.033sec split the top four karts on track, and 1.229sec covered the entire field.
Limited positions remain open on the grid, with new teams welcome to join the fun!
