If the Gunner Government will be basing its fracking regulations on what Mines and Energy Minister Vowles brought back from a fact finding mission in the USA, Territorians should be alarmed. If this is world’s best practice regulation, then it shows that regulation is incapable of preventing harm, writes Lauren Mellor from Frack-free NT.
Now that the dust has settled from the NT Karting titles, won by long-time Central Australian motor sports identity Tony Connor in the Statesman Class, the Dirt Kart fraternity is gearing up for the Alice Springs titles on September 18.
Club President Gary Burns says several new drivers were planning to come out and have a go this weekend.
“The NT titles have created some excitement and energy so we’re expecting to see some new faces at the track,” he said.
In the NT titles Connor scored 116 points from his eight heats to edge out Port Pirie’s Dale Afford by one point. PICTURED: KT Medium driver Adem Mahomet takes a tumble at the Territory Titles in Alice Springs on 17 July. Photo and story by PATRICK NELSON.
