Various major Superkart events have been affected by lockdowns and travel restrictions, including the second round of the SKA National Series plus the National Festival of Superkarts.
Superkarts Australia has confirmed the second round of its National Series has been cancelled. The round was to have run in conjunction with the Muscle Car Masters at Sydney Motorsport Park on September 4-5, however Muscle Car Masters has now been called off.
“This means that unfortunately the second round of the SKA National Series will not be going ahead in 2021” the organisation posted.
“Thank you to all the competitors for providing some fantastic racing and memorable moments at Round One of the SKA National Series at The Bend Motorsport Park earlier this year. Superkarts Australia appreciates everyone’s support and wishes you a safe rest of the year. Bring on 2022!”
Meanwhile, the Victorian Superkart Club has moved the date of its Phillip Island based National Festival of Superkarts from August to September 17-19.
“This will keep the meeting with its ‘unofficial’ Friday practice, giving those from interstate the chance to practice before the main event starts on the Saturday” the club posted.
Because of the date swap, the club is looking to run the sixth round of its Club Championship as a one-dayer on August 8, though that has yet to be confirmed. (EDIT – now confirmed, entries are open)
