Words by Nick Crockford

Nate and Tyriani Wood have added state titles to their national karting crowns.

The siblings from Woody Point took first and second at the SKAA Queensland Speedway Kart Championships in Marborough on Saturday.

Nate, 11, pictured above, won the state Sub Junior section, breaking the lap record in the process by clocking 17.705 seconds.

Sister Tyriani, 10, took second place pushing her brother all the way and finishing right behind him.

This was a reverse of the recent national championships, held in Victoria, where Tyriani finished first and Nate second.

That was also the first time the peninsula pair had competed against each other at the same event.

Tyriani went into the national titles with the NSW state title, while Nate was third.
