"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. "
"Be careful Patrick, If you say what club had to cancel a meeting due to low numbers on a public forum, you will likely be banned from KA for bring the sport into disrepute. :-(
I mean after all, highlighting problems in the karting…"
"You would think the heirachy in any sport would be deeply concerned when numbers are so low clubs have to cancel meetings through lack of interest. Not KA in the sport of karting. ALWAYS remarkably quiet when participation numbers are discussed.…"
"Toowoomba had 105 entries today. Drivers still had fun. Some met with stewards. Some bloody awesome racing.
Expect similar turnout over coming months.
Not that long ago that 50 entries was a good day.
So club must be doing something right, and all…"
"Just to clarify, $40 is a 4 month trial licence and membership (awesome idea), $120 for 12 months, national licence and club membership and $10 per rider entry for a local race meeting.
Still in a totally different realm to karting that is…"
"WOW Simon what are you racing Formula 1
$120 entry?? What club are you racing at?
$275 Tyres depending what class. We run Tag R Light and would get a least 3 meets for a set. $275 (your price) so divide $275 / 3 = $92.00
"Its funny years ago (2010) if you were to say bad things about the then AKA the members not AKA were the first to pull you up and i know that first hand.
Having said that the rules should not be abused i was a victim of online bullying and had a…"
"$200 for a club day??? Tell him he’s dreaming. $120 entry, $275 tyres $50 fuel/oil, say $50 worth of hours put on your motor...and that’s without any prep costs like chains, sprockets, bearings ect club days cost $600 ish at a guess."
"You are right Ian by saying you cant force people to race club days but you can put a system in place a system that supports grass roots clubs. Karters are also responsible in supporting clubs and karters at both levels have decided not to support…"
"I've read those KA authored characterisations of persons making IMO largely not unreasonable critique of KA policy and actions. All I can say is that in my experience "trolls" and 'keyboard cowards" never put their real name…"
Have you just come to that conclusion?
They have been at it for years, and troll any site they can think of attempting to unveil comments by anyone associated with Karting.
There also seems in place a monitor of comments made by certain…"
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?
