"Mate the yearly financials will show you the cost of Insurance, and without referring to it directly, I believe it was in the vicinity if $410K.

"It appears KNSW with its fresh eyes have conducted its own Whole of KA review.
It is refreshing to see professionals taking their position seriously and certainly contributing in a positive fashion.
KA have more than met its match with this board…"
You are forgetting that KA has to make an earn out of all this, so they have re-invent the wheel to bring in a class they can see meets the requirement karters are screaming out for??????
The WOSR mentioned about a controlled chassis, they…"
"What you guys fail to recognize here is, although many classes have been created to attract people to the sport, create enjoyment amongst those with equal ability and budgets, there is no earn in any of this for KA, so it gets scrapped. So get…"

"You wouldn't be the first non participant official to be banned from anything other than spectating, and some event banned beyond that.
It really does make the mind boggle what they will do to who, for what. "

thanks Neville for asking to be a friend . I have always read your comments & I believe you have karting at the best for the karting community you are a dictoriny to what Australian karting has forgot so thanks
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?
