A strong family tradition on the track in karting

WHO would have thought 40 years ago when Barry Fisher took up kart racing that he would be able to compete at a meeting with his daughter and three of his grandsons.

Fisher is a foundation member of the Lismore Kart Club.

He previously won a national title and eight State titles.

Karting is a sport open to the whole family.

Lismore Kart Club's monthly race meeting is this weekend and spectators are welcome with free entry.
