Lithgow District Combined Kart club held round three of the 2019 NSW Karting championships at Lithgow race track.
There were 86 competitors across nine classes taking on the three massive days of racing from Friday, October 4 and concluding on Sunday, October 6.
"Look, having around 86 competitors, it's dismal really," president of the LDCK club Russell Becker said.
"Last year we had over 180 entries but due to political issues in karting at the moment it isn't really a surprise."
Despite the drop in numbers, racers still travelled from all over NSW to attend the race meet.
"We have had people travel from all over, such as Lismore, Canberra, Coffs Harbour, Sydney and even about half a dozen locals," Becker said.
Despite a wet qualifying on Saturday, the rest of the weekend saw some sunshine and clear weather for the racers.
"It has been a really good weekend, it has all run to time, we haven't had any major accidents or crashes," he said.
"The people here have been really enjoying themselves and getting into the spirit."
Timothy Colombrita took out the win in the 125 Light final, while Simon Davison inched out competitor Luke Seymour in the 125 Heavy division. Mitchell Saunderson took out the Junior Heavy final while Kai Jordan was two seconds quicker then Matthew Hansford-Taylor to win the Junior Light final.
In the Senior Performance Heavy category, Nicholas Becker showed his skills to take the win, while in the Light category it was Liam Jones who came out on top.
With less then one second between them Ryan Tomsett edged out Joshua Benaud to take the Rookies win.
Becker said that he was happy the Lithgow community could benefit from the race, with people inserting money into the town.
"With this many people coming into the community, 86 racers and their families, that's good money being spent in town at hotels, pubs and local shops," he said.
"We would also like to thank our local sponsors the Lithgow Workies and Seven Eleven."
LCDK Club will host their annual Club weekend on Saturday, November 16 and Sunday, November 17 in memory of Clyde Marshall.
