Karting Australia has confirmed Murray Bridge as the venue for the final round of the 2021 SP Tools Australian Kart Championship presented by Castrol EDGE.
To be hosted by the Go-Kart Club of South Australia, the event will be contested at the Monarto Karting Complex.
It will be the sixth time the venue has hosted a round Australia’s elite Championship.
“Our focus for the Championship since the COVID-19 restrictions started to ease a few months ago was to be able to complete a fourth round and be able to truly crown our National Champions for 2021,” said Karting Australia Chief Executive Officer Kelvin O’Reilly.
“After a very interrupted 2020, we always thought that 2021 was going to be a tough year with Covid, but this year has been exceptionally tough on everyone in the karting community.
“South Australia is the only State in Australia where teams from all States and Territories can enter, compete and return home, without the need to quarantine for lengthy periods of time, and we look forward to being able to have everyone come together in Murray Bridge next month.
“It is unfortunate that we are unable to return to either Seymour or Newcastle this year, which were originally scheduled to host the final two rounds, but we’re excited about finishing the year off with a great event in South Australia.”
