"I have just read Mitch Lozina's paper.
I note with some satisfaction that he has addressed my thoughts on the KA response, but so much more eloquently than I might have.
And in the final couple of pages of graphs, I note that my club, now no…"
"I have just been reading with interest the press release from Karting NSW, and the response from Mick Doohan on behalf of KA.
It is interesting that Karting NSW must be the only state karting body in Australia that has experienced a serious downturn…"
"I have a couple of comments re the above replies.
First, fuel legality is determined as a judge of fact. The penalty cannot be appealed.
I do wonder whether there may be some recourse to a remedy in an expensive civil proceeding. And…"
"Hey Guys ,
I am no lover of KA but there should not be unfair bias when levelling criticism at the organisation that we foolishly put in control.
We have all been stewards and have had to impose penalties in accordance with the rule book whether we…"
"I doubt that the KA ineptitude mob will reverse anything ..the 4 people named will just be labelled fuel cheats by their peers forever and a day, with no recourse...but that's the way this parliament of KA dimwits operate. And the KA followers…"

"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…"
"Julian, if your son is 2 seconds off the pace with tyres that old, he should be able to gain a second a lap on new tyres. That would put him in a position to have some racing in the back half of the field, and more importantly, learn how to…"
"Joe, your tyre spend is scary. The best ever lasting tyre we had at one time was the Bridgestone YEQ. 3 good meetings in Clubman, and at least, possibly more laps practicing. The same tyres in J's gave 5 good meetings, and again at least as…"
"Old discussion, so back to topic.
Both of my sons could lap 1.5 seconds faster than me.
However, I always achieved 100, and sometimes 200 RPM more than either of them down the main straight.
Same gearing, but I was 10Kg heavier.
One of my sons…"
