IKD Celebrate 30 Years in 2020

2020 will be an exciting year for International Karting Distributors (IKD) – we are celebrating our 30 year anniversary.

Ian Black started what was Blacktown Kart Centre in 1990 and has since grown the business to what is today known as IKD.

From being a one-man band in the back of his Father’s automotive business, IKD is now a company employing nine staff to service your karting and motorsport needs.

IKD has been a family run business since the start. Ian has employed both of his parents, David & Kerry (now retired) and both of his children, Maddie & Jack, as well as a team of staff who are extremely knowledgeable and a credit to the karting industry.

In the 30 years IKD have acquired distributorship of the industry’s most prestigious brands, including BRP Rotax, OTK, Tillett, Sparco, OMP & Alpinestars just to name a few.

Not only do we service the karting market, but IKD also started Racedeal in early 2013. Racedeal is an online store focused on offering all racing apparel as well as car racing products such as seats, steering wheels and harnesses at competitive pricing.


To celebrate our 30 year anniversary IKD are creating a whole new, bigger and better showroom known as ‘Race Department’ which will stock all of our brands from karting to FIA motorsport products.

Our dedicated sales team will be on hand to assist customers either in-store, online or over the phone for any enquiries you may have. We offer fast affordable same day shipping as well as ensuring our products are regularly in stock to limit the wait time.

We are excited to unveil our Race Department and will be having a ‘Grand Opening’ in the new year. This will include a sausage sizzle, random giveaways and discounts to celebrate what is a milestone year for IKD.

More information on our opening will be released in the New Year.

From the entire IKD Team, we would like to thank you for your business in 2019. We wish you all a happy and safe Christmas and New Years and we look forward to seeing and hearing from you all again in 2020.

IKD will close at 5:00pm Friday 20th December and open at 8:30am Monday 6th January.
