Karting News Briefs

  13 December 2013

karting capers for Friday the 13th...

  • Grenfell Kart Club will host the 2014 NSW State Titles. The event takes place on October 3 to 5.

  • The SA Karting Association is holding a "Come N Try" day at the Monarto Karting Complex on Sunday, January 12th. If you know anyone wanting to have a test drive of a race kart, this is a perfect opportunity to introduce them to the sport. All drivers welcome from 7 years of age onwards. Karts and apparel supplied, cost is $10 per driver and bookings are essential - call (08) 8340 9288 or email iwt@iwt.com.au

  • The 2014 NSW TaG Super Series will offer the Junior Max class at all rounds. This gives NSW-based Junior Max racers a golden opportunity to race some decent events that are not too far away from home. None of the rounds clash with the Rotax Pro Tour. In fact, this series is an ideal stepping stone for kids stepping up from Js before hitting the Pro Tour. Super Series dates and venues were in yesterday's News Briefs.
