Indy 800 Comer Class
Year after year, the comer class proves its popularity by the continuous rise in the number of competitors. The kids in the class age between 7-11 years and even though they are only young, they still manage to provide a good show for their supporters, spectators and officials alike. They must all run Comer S80 or Comer SW80 engines and have a minimum weight to reach of 90kg (kart and driver). All drivers are required to run Dunlop SL1 Rookie tyres as a series control tyre to give every competitor as equal an opportunity as possible. Having these rules in place makes the racing closer and helps the competitors to learn kart control and invaluable driving skills.
Indy 800 Racing Series has a total of 8 rounds with the series kicking off in February/March each year and Ends in October. Each round gives all classes a morning practice session, Qualifying, 2 heats of 8 laps each, a Pre Final consisting of 10 laps and a Final of 12 laps with the winners decided by the Final of the night. All rounds are competed here at Indy 800 Kart Track which is generally run once a month from the start of the season. Points are accumulated for each round which go towards the series Championship for each class. Our 2015 season saw a total of 9 rounds for the series, being our biggest year yet with an average number of 80 competitors each round across all classes. Recently stepping out of Comers is Jake Beattie and Dylan De Bono; both boys running Mini Max in the Australian Pro Tour series this year. Beattie and De Bono are doing great and are both enjoying the series which takes them all around Australia from South Australian, Melbourne and all the way up to Ipswich, Queensland.
