  • Launceston Kart Club has announced a partnership with their local radio station, Chilli 90.1fm. The station will sponsor the control tower at the track, but more importantly for karting, information about each race meeting will hit the airwaves in the week leading up to the event. Free passes will also be given away to lucky listeners. The club has also signed GLB Constructions as the new sponsor of the fast sweeper approaching McDonalds corner.

  • Arrow has announced a team of drivers who will be representing the Australian manufacturer at the SKUSA Super Nationals in Vegas in November. The impressive lineup includes David Sera, Nick Rowe, Ben Stewart, Kip Foster, Nathan Davis and Matt Davis.

"It will be like racing on a completely new track." The club is also seeking feedback about which direction the Sapphire Cup should be run on November 4-5.
