"I know a written submission was made in November last year requesting that the Subaru engines be allowed a 12 months grace as a transition cross over, with a view of encouraging the owners of those engines to enter 4 stroke sprint events and assist…"
"I think you have nailed the problem Di. Most people are running scared. I continually field calls from people all complaining of the same things in karting, yet they are loathe to stand up or poke their heads up fearing retribution from…"
Even factoring in any added licence's such as the 'parent/pitcrew' licence, that is a loss of 19.65% of licence holders over that short period of time!
So if that percentage is applied across the National licence holder…"
"So that is a loss then of just over 1 driver per day in that small window of a 5 month period in one state?
No matter how you look at that, it's an alarming rate of loss.
Who is going to step up and stop this slide?
Correct me if I am wrong…"
There are plenty who can't distinguish between a comment and a question, believe me.
There is only 5% of the ordinary members required to call a special general meeting. Here we have at least 7% of associate members signing the…"
that would mean we have lost 5,000 karters in 4 years?
I don't believe we have lost that many, as although the figures suggest a number have left karting, some of that number are replaced by 'new' licence holders entering…"
"Kris there had been some interest in 4 stroke sprint racing until the end of 2017 with the guys using the Subaru engine.
A recommendation has been put forward for that engine to be allowed 12 months grace giving existing engine owners the…"
"Exactly what most have been asking for over the last 4 years Ian. You know first hand the enormous effort that is put in by those unsung heroes, the volunteers. The ones at the coal face who know and understand how the machinations work…"
"Mate my son still races and according to KA I am not allowed to associate with him??? I am lucky enough that he is old enough to work on the kart himself. (infact he encourages me to stay away, he reckons he has never gone faster since…"
"So therefore Brian you,as should, as KA should, get to know the people who actually do work tirelessly for their clubs and its members.
I have been awarded life membership of my club, as have a number of others, who put in to make sure the club…"
That is exactly why the Board of KA needs to be replaced. This type of thing is not good business practice. It also buggers me that a Board with so many 'suitably qualified' people on Committees must appoint an outsider (who doesn't do it for nothing) to take charge of an aspect of karting. Don't they have any business accumen?
I'm considering racing at Picton this w/e..
At Canberra at the mo, so getting there shouldn't be a problem..
Can I camp at the track? With my 80yr old mom and 14yr old lap dog in our campervan...
Is power a possibility?
If so can I arrive tomorrow.. Practice on Saturday...?
How many TaG R H would you expect racing?
Thanking you, Carl.
Would you expect Homebush Karting being there?
Hi Neville, thanks for the invite. I love karting but see a dismal future for us that love Clubman. I was President of Toowoomba for 2 years, and have been involved for 10 years. IF you want to discuss anything my phone number is 0419733528
My comments have to be somewhat guarded for defamation reasons. The AKAQ has been ripped off by probably more than the $54,000 but this is a good starting point. The person involved was formerly on the AKAQ Executive. This person (not Ralph) has also been involved with stealing nearly $250,000 from a separate individual who I happen to know. I understand he will be charged by the Fraud Squad in the next few weeks on the individuals matter. By the way "Up the Rabbitohs". I have been a Souths supporter since the mid-60's. Maybe this year?
