Hamish Campbell Shifts Up a Gear in Australian Kart Championships


As a 12-year-old, Hamish is almost certainly the only junior to run 2 classes: KA2 & KA3 in the history of the Australian Kart Championship. This is only possible due to his fantastic year last year in Cadets in Australia and Italy which secured him an A-grade license. Many of the kids he competed against in Melbourne are in either their second or third year in the class, many of whom already race cars in conjunction with their karting program while Hamish is still in Primary School.

Hamish's skills and achievements are nothing but impressive. With many, many more races to come, including the Rotax National Cup in Ipswich - which a first place in this event will grant him a ticket to race the world's best in Bahrain later this year, the only thing left to say is "watch this space" - Go Hamish!
