AHR is my own Kart team. AHR stands for Andrew Hayes Racing. We currently run two karts for myself and my Dad. The team began in June 1994 when I raced for the first time. I was using an Australian made 1993 Seeger chassis coupled with a Yamaha KT100J engine. I was third in the rookie class that day.
Since then I have had mixed results. I moved to Juniors at the beginning of 1995 and was still on a steep learning curve. But in June that year I managed to take victory in the Warrnambool open meeting. This would be my only major win in the junior classes.
Being quite tall, I was usually over the class weight so I was desperately awaiting the chance to move to seniors, where i could finally race on even terms. The opportunity came after my 16th birthday in 1997.
Since then I have been a front runner at almost every meeting I have attended. This has been aided by the late 97 purchase of a superb Arrow AX6 chassis(similar to the one pictured above). My karting career hit a high in 1998 with several top performances. If everything goes to plan though, I wish to move into cars in the near future.This will be the biggest challenge of my life.
