Baines Motorsport Team racing for a cause.

The 2011 speedway kart season is only two short weeks away form starting and both Jake and Wayne Baines are anticipating a big season ahead .

Both drivers have high expectations of achieving good results both on and off the track .

2010 saw Jake move into the Junior class and spent the season finding his way against some seasoned and very talented drivers .

However after a full season learning the traits of those drivers he now feels he is ready to give the Junior competition a real run for the title .

Wayne on the other hand had a season that wasn’t quite to the standards he sets for himself .

In a year that saw him developing a new style of Benson chassis for most of the season , Wayne finished 2nd  in the KT Heavy class.

 Towards the end of the season however  changes made to the kart saw him on the pace and he is ready for the start of the 2011 season and feels he is a very strong chance of taking out the class championship . 

The team this year will be changing color schemes and numbers as they race for a cause trying to raise money for ongoing Breast Cancer Research .

They will be sporting a striking new Black, Pink and White design and both will carry the number 14 . 

During the off season Jake approached his Dad and asked if he could use his racing to help spread to word about Breast Cancer and also try and raise money for the McGrath Foundation .

This request made both Jakes parents ,Wayne and Alana very proud that their  14 year old boy would like to try and make a difference .

Following Jake’s lead , Wayne then decided he would join Jake and try and raise funds for the Breast Cancer Council .

The number 14 comes into play as this was Alana’s racing number and given the boys will be raising money for women’s charities they decided to both run Alana’s number in honor of her .

With approval given from both associations , Wayne and Jake will be trying to raise as much as possible thru out the year with merchandise sales from both groups and also via donation buckets at the race meetings .

The boys have a big season planned and will be contesting all of the New South Wales Speedway Kart Club race meetings at Nepean Motorsport Complex as well as some selected events at Gosford showground with the CCSKC .

They will both also contest the State Titles in June and the Australian Titles in September . 

The team has received  great support from Gavin Skene of with  the body design ,also Brendan Fox the  owner of Showpiece Signs has sign written the karts and also Ralph Green from DTO Racewear has provided  the new race suits the boys have . 

Wayne and Jake would like to thank Gavin , Brendan ,Ralph for their support along with their other sponsors Parramatta Kart Warehouse and Hopping’s Mowers .

 Anybody wishing to make a donation or would like to become part of the team trying to make a difference can contact Wayne on 0418662003 . 

Their first race meeting is scheduled at Nepean on the 20th February and they would like to see as many people come out to Nepean as possible for what will be the start of a fun 2011 season .
