kartx issue 11 cover

from the publishers of KARTX:

At KARTX we’re not just about the on track action, we’re about giving the reader more information than ever before. Last month we brought you the exclusive chat with Remo Luciani about why he sold 60% of his business, including the lucrative MG Tyres deal, to DPE Kart Technology.

This month’s cover story is the first of a multipart look at Australian karting titled the ‘State of Play’. First up is the next generation of industry, 7 members chosen to speak openly and interact with each other about their involvement in Australian karting like never before, what they see as some of the good things and what they believe needs improving.

It made for an interesting evening when they gathered for the chat, and it made for more interesting reading when we went back through the recorder to put it all in print, Its raw, as spoken and gives you a seat at the table to listen as to what was said. We hope you enjoy the first instalment of the State of Play along with the rest of this jam-packed 68 page July edition of KARTX.
