  • KartbookTV's Wednesday video wrap:

  • There will be no KF2 British Championship in the UK in 2013. The governing body has ditched the category which has continually suffered from a lack of support. It is now possible the KZ gearbox class could inherit the tag of UK karting's top British Championship class. More on HERE.

  • David Sera and Kel Treseder are looking to conduct a driver training weekend in Bundaberg on May 11 and 12. It will cover on and off track aspects and include driving technique and kart setup information. However, before they commit to run, the champion duo needs to know if there is enough demand. Cost will be a $150 with a maximum of 30 participants (15 each day). Contact Kel - 0417 094 681 or email

  • Entry is now open for the Rotax Pro Tour Newcastle on 12-14th April. Every entered driver will receive a FREE Official Drivers T-Shirt. These will be distributed on the Friday at the event. Please note that the close of entry date has been extended to Tuesday 9th April 2013. Supp Regs and entry Form HERE.
