Phillip Island Karting Queen 23 year old Daniella Daniels, is a pre-school teacher by day
but at the weekend, she’s a speed demon and is challenging all comers to beat her time at
the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit Go Kart Track.
The Phillip Island GP circuit backdrop of Bass Strait can’t be beaten at the replica go cart
track which stands alongside the world famous circuit.
Jump in Phillip Island’s new go karts
and slam dunk Daniella’s record
WANT to add some speed to your school
Head to the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit
Go Kart Track and take on our challenge, to
“S lam-Dunk Daniella’s Go Kart Record” in our
new French Sodi RT8 Evo2 Go Karts which
have just arrived from Europe.
So who is the fleet-footed Daniella?
She’s the Phillip Island Karting Queen and
in years of go karting at the Island, it is none
other than Daniella Daniels, the 23 year old
pre-school teacher from Narre Warren North,
who heads the record books for hot lap times
in the Sodi karts.
Bedding down the Go Karts this week, we
called on Daniella to put the new four wheel
machines to the test. She managed a best lap
time of 47.419 seconds on the 750 metre Phil-
lip Island Go Kart track which is a replica of the
world famous Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit.
“I just love go karting, it’s a passion of mine.
I grew up with older brothers and our life was
all about cars and bikes and going fast.
“I’ve never done driver training, I just get out
there and go!” said Daniella.
“The new go karts are super special and as
the holidays go on, they’ll get run it and they’ll
pick up even more pace. It’s a ton of fun and I
can’t wait to get back on track.”
So speedsters, that’s your mark – 47.419
seconds. As of today, Daniella sits on the top
of the Honour Board, but your holiday mission
is to slam- dunk her time and see your name
lead the charge.
