LAUNCESTON Kart Club will this weekend host what it believes to be the biggest race meeting in Tasmania aside from the state title.
The Clubman Cup is one of the most sought after trophies in Tasmania and the feature classes of clubman light and clubman heavy have attracted a field of 23 of the state's finest drivers to Archerville.
In its 17th year, the cup also includes junior clubman, over 40 clubman pro and clubman super heavy with a total of 35 drivers spread across all clubman divisions.
LKC is optimistic of success in four of the five clubman cups on offer with Nathan Zuj starting favourite in clubman light, albeit with stiff opposition from Devonport's Brody Appleby and Hobart's Brad Hobden.
Another Launceston driver, Damon Shelton, will also be one to watch as he is a past winner of this event.
The clubman heavy field sees another pair of Launceston karters head the list of possible winners with Zane Wyatt and Troy Stone coming off good mainland results likely to battle it out with Hobart's Mitchell Evans.
Clubman super heavy has a field of six with Perth's Scott Wrigley the early favourite.
A winner from the very first Clubman Cup is hoping to back up with another victory 17 years later when Stephen Bricknell competes in the over 40s clubman pro.
The junior clubman is a race in three with Wade McLean, Morgan Jakobovski and Jacob Morris all contenders.
Support racing includes cadets, rookies, junior national (light and heavy), tag restricted (light and heavy) and over 40s pro and super heavy.
As a special treat held during the Saturday practice, Tasmania Police will be on hand with a radar gun clocking each driver to determine the fastest in each class.
Saturday practice is from 10am-5pm with racing from 9am on Sundayntsa September 1stnte.
