"There's 6000 odd licensed AKA karters, Gavin. I have heaps of customers who don't race with the AKA. This website gets visited by FAR too many individual computers each week for there to be only 6000 people interested in asphalt karting."

"Wholeheartedly agree with that. 12 months of non communication followed by only 3 months to get prepared for a whole new world is unrealistic. "

"All good, I will be watching them burn too.. I just wish they would look after the juniors by giving more choices for them to run. Be more progressive in developing junior classes(kartify Aus) or whatever they called it. "

"My apologies Col....I only saw a the second part of your post and didn't realise you were replying to a previous question. I take it you were assuming , in your reply, that the engine was already in existence. Apparently it is a new model."

Col Fink replied to Steve Oliver's discussion Buy a Mini Rok from the States
""Trust is difficult to gain when transparency is given a low priority." I could not agree more. On this front, our first board of directors have failed in their first year (in my opinion). I hope they improve in future."

Future Engine Selection Process

It’s an exciting time for karting. We’re a month away from the beginning of Governance, a moment that is literally years in the making. Finally, the sport will be directed by a board of professionals, under a structure deemed Best Management Practice by the Australian government, and used with great success by sports and hobbies of all kinds across Australia.

 

Finally, the Australian karter will be treated as a customer, with all the care and respect that we deserve. Finally,…

Hey Col,

 

Love Kartbook, but just as a suggestion, would it be possible to add a date filter to the forum search. If you do a keyword search in the marketplace, results are not in date order.

 

Not a criticism, just a suggestion, as I say, I love kartbook, its one of my favourite sites.

 

Regards

 

Greg

Hello Col,

I'm afraid it is the same person...

Pleased that you say some things I wrote were useful for you, and hope I didn't lead you down to many long and winding dead ends.

I doubt I'll be getting into too many long (winded?) ediscussions, these days I'm too busy / tired most of the time.

Regards,

John.
