Go For Gold Go-Kart Challenge

The MAAC 18th Annual Go Kart racing event was recently held at the Sepang International Circuit on 04 August 2018. This year a total of 15 teams from Australian Universities Alumni Chapters participated in the “gruesome” race.

The extremely hot and humid weather did not deter the teams to give their very best to win placings for their respective teams. Not only was the challenge trophy up for grabs, there were also sponsored goodies to be won.

To add to the camaraderie of the exciting event, each team brought their own cheerleading groups to give them the boost to complete the circuit in perfect harmony. Like all races, there will only be one winner. The challenge trophy for the year 2018 went to the team from Murdoch University. Coming in second was a team from Monash University and third was University of Sydney. All three teams clocked in very impressive time.

The MAAC Vice President (Alumni Relations), Adrian Ong gave away the trophies and prizes. A very special prize was also extended to a Monash team that completed the circuit even though it was the last to do so. What a sport!

The hamper prizes this year were sponsored by The Model Cook. Other sponsors include drinks by MAAC President Pat PW Yeoh and passport holders from PM Resources Sdn Bhd.
