Written on the 10 December 2018 by South West VoiceLocal kart racing young gun Angus Wallace has conquered the Gold Coast and has now set his eyes on Las Vegas.
After finishing first in the recent Gold Coast 600 Race of Stars junior event, the 16-year-old from Camden has been invited to race at the SKUSA (SuperKarts USA) Supernationals in Las Vegas.Although this is a huge opportunity, Wallace also sees it as a massive challenge.
"The opportunity to race in the Rotax Pro Tour in Australia has given me some high-level racing, but Las Vegas would definitely be the next level,'' he says.Wallace, who employed all of his skills, fortitude and physical prowess to force his way onto the podium at the Gold Coast event, is a South West Sydney Academy of Sport (SWSAS) Future Stars program athlete.
"I was really stoked with the way the weekend went and qualifying eighth out of 31 was a good start,'' said the young star."The kart was in great shape and my focus was sharp,'' he said.
