As the newly appointed Acting Chair, I would firstly like to thank Paul Brennan AM for his  contribution to our sport over the past 11 months. In light of recent catastrophes, unprecedented rain and on the back of Covid 19 recovery I’m happy to report that participation rates have increased by approximately 5% over the last six months. We have to spare a thought for the Lismore Kart Club who once again has had their facility devastated by flooding.


I’m happy to announce the recent appointment of two new board members Ian Black as Director of Competition and Lisa Darley as Director of Promotion, Marketing and Media, myself and the Board are extremely confident that their knowledge and experience will benefit the skill set of the Board. I look forward to working with them into the future.

This year we saw the Hunter Valley Club form and successfully run a number of meetings at the Newcastle facility. We successfully ran four state titles NSW State Tiles at Dubbo, ACT State Titles at Canberra, Speedway, Endurance and new to state title status was the ever increasing 4SS class.

Thanks goes to Goodyear and Dunlop Tyres and Les May at ALM Sales for sponsoring and promoting the grid kids opportunity to meet drivers and teams at Sydney Motorsport Park Beaurepaires Sydney Night Race at Sydney Motorsport Park and the Repco Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama.
