Congrats to KA on 1st round of the Nationals

Well I have to say (according  to the blurb) that KA  should be congratulated for the excellent turnout for the first round. 291 over 9 classes is a great turnout and yes, it is the biggest event…Continue

"That is true, but value for money starts to diminish as you race less. There is then a cross over point between value and cost where by the money spent, does not equal the fun had. This point will be different for everyone, but given the…"

"On a more positive note, one of the best things about karting is you only need to do as many races as you can afford. For some people that's most weekends, for some people that's 6-8 times a year, and some people once a year on a $75/day…"
