Good day,

I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on (augustinaziankou@vp.pl) for the full details.

Have a nice day.
Mr. Augustin.

Hi Steve,

I have retired from SA and karting  and now live in sth east Qld.

However I still have as much passion as ever and follow the scene (much to my wife's disgust)

Unfortunately the current SA President and past commissioner is so far up KA he does nothing to rock the boat even though the killing off of numbers at meetings is well documented.

Interestingly I was talking to one of my friends who is still involved and it seems KA are talking up numbers of members stating CMS does not lie.

they are apparently.... including anyone he has ever held a licence since the inception.

AT least three people on the list :

1. has not held a licence since 2013

2. has not since 2015

and 3rd not since march this year.

So of course numbers are increasing !!!! 

Their greatest weapon is as it has always been   APATHY  :(

cheers

Ian

Hi Steve

I was hoping to discuss the discrimination thing away from the forum if you wanted to

Thanks

PS I think this has a fair chance (the age discrimination card) of holding water.

Thanks mate, all good advice. I had heard the front end is main area to play with. Did you change anything on the rear?

No Steve don't have one at all. Have bought an Alfano Pro but need a water sensor. Found one on eBay this morning from UK only $80 including postage.

Thanks for that Steve, I wasn't aware of the charging rates etc. It is a shame as karters loose out on some where else to run.

Anyway good luck with Picton, it is a great track, and the people are really nice there too. A couple of us took some Subaru karts down there form our series to have a run.

Best of luck with the new venue. I'm sure the Picton crew will do all they can to accommodate you, as they did with us.

Damo
