Podium finish; Herbertson claims third in Australasian titles
PORTLAND karter Corey Herbertson is continuing to rise up the ranks after a strong performance at the Australasian Kart Titles, held at Numurkah Raceway in the Goulburn Valley last weekend.
Racing in the KA4 Junior Light class against 14 other drivers, 15-year-old Herbertson earned a podium result, finishing third overall.
It was the first time Herbertson had raced in the Australasian titles and the third place finish continues his excellent form on the track, including a first overall finish at the Victorian Country Series round in Cobden in April.
Herbertson said the race win is a good reward for the work he’s put in.
“I’m very happy, I wasn’t planning on going to the meet, but decided to at the last minute and it turned out pretty good,” Herbertson said.
“This is my last year racing juniors after three years; this year was always going to be my best year with all the knowledge I have now about racing, but I feel like I’m doing pretty good.”
