As part of the newly launched #TOGETHERWERACE Initiative, Karting NSW is proud to announce the KNSW Ambassadors for 2021/22 are IMOGEN RADBURN and LUKE ANGILLEY.
Director of Administration, Ben Aylen wishes to thank the karting community for putting forward their nominations for this year’s KNSW Ambassadors for 2021/22. As with all things karting, the competition was fierce and hotly contested.
KNSW Ambassadors will work together to not only represent all things Karting NSW on and off the track, but will also be involved each month directly with the Board of KNSW, providing an ‘Update from the Track’, ideas and thoughts to improve the sport from and for our next generation of karters.
Imogen has been involved in Karting for the past 2 years and in such a short time, has already made strong connections with young karters, their parents and others in the karting community.
She has a very bubbly personality and communicates extremely well with both adults and children.
Imogen has had an extremely successful 2020 racing year with KNSW and has won the state titles for NSW and ACT.
Imogen is currently completing Year 10 at Bomaderry High School on the South Coast of NSW. During her time there, Imogen has been chosen as a mentor to the upcoming Year 7 students.
Imogen loves spending time with the younger karting community and encouraging and supporting their goals. She loves sharing their excitement when they succeed and offers a ‘shoulder’ or and ‘ear’ when things do not go the way they had planned.
She is often seen giving them words of encouragement to come back even stronger in the next race. Imogen says “I’m thrilled to say that I’ve learned from so many trained professionals in my field, but I know that I still have so much to learn from others in the industry. I’m a hard worker, a team player and excited to see what projects could benefit from my unique skill set. I can’t wait to get started on how I can help other karters in NSW in the future”.
Luke has been involved in speedway for a number of years, having won 2 x NSW State Speedway Titles and 1 Australian title. Luke has recently come across to sprint karting and has been enjoying racing with KNSW.
Luke is currently in Year 8 at Camden High School. He was School Ambassador for Mount Hunter Public School in 2019.
Besides all motorsports, Luke is interested in engineering, building cars, new technology, designing and printing 3D Objects. Luke also has a keen interest in future proofing the sport with a keen interest in electric karts and car engines.
Luke is passionate about making karting accessible and affordable. He believes if more people had access to karting, they would catch the bug and be in for life.
Luke is a very friendly and approachable person, willing to held out others in any situation. He is extremely respectful and gets along with all peers and competitors in any sport in which he competes.
Luke is currently a member at Port Macquarie Kart Club.
We wish to congratulate both Imogen and Luke on their appointments and look forward to sharing further their further insights in months to come.
