Its an ideal chance for competitors with KZ2/ Rotax Max/ TAG sprint karts to try road racing. Don't forget we have a 85cc junior class that has just started. Drivers from 14 years of age can race them. Cheap reliable racing. We have many 85cc senior competitors already with competitors from 14 to their late 60s.

An 85cc Junior Superkart information day at Xtreme Karting will be held June 10th from 9am to 12pm. Have a chat to the boys about getting involved. Promo attached
Honestly Anthony the low numbers are due to 2 factors. The cost of entry used to be $295 (2016) which is a large amount compared to $80 in Sprint Karting but is beyond the control of the Club. Secondly running meetings over 2 days is not the way to go. Far too long is wasted just sitting around waiting for your next race. Run some classes on the Saturday & others on the Sunday. I think the Club has tried this recently. What was the feedback from members?
