Welcome to the Sydney Kart Racing Club. Your club has been made up from a band of very dedicated and loyal volunteers who give up time so we can put on some of the best race meetings in the country.

The much anticipated resurfacing of the Port Macquarie Kart track is underway.

We have identified that some are still having issues with the MyKarting Portal but don’t fear as KNSW is here.

If you’re one of those affected, please be at the Canberra kart track between 5pm and 7pm tomorrow (Friday 8th February) and we’ll have staff onsite to assist you in getting licencing sorted out for this weekend.

If you haven’t nominated yet for the first round don’t despair.  Just get your kart ready, head to Canberra tomorrow and we will get you sorted out so you can race on the weekend.

The new Maxxis dry tyre has already proven to be a big hit.  Affordable, durable and fun to drive on.  The Maxxis Sport and Dunlop KT12-SLW2 Wet are available at all good kart shops.

Karting NSW would like to congratulate Bathurst Kart Club, Bathurst Regional Council and all bodies that contributed to the success of the DA for an International kart track to be built on top of Mount Panorama.
 
Bathurst Kart Club President Mark Dunbar would like to thank all who contributed their time, effort and expertise to get this project underway. He understands that there's a long road ahead, but with the support of karters and appropriate bodies this project should be up and running in the near future.
 
Bathurst Kart Club will keep everybody updated with the progress of the track.

Just hours after Lewis Mataczyna was born in Canberra, he was flown to Sydney wrapped in cotton wool.

He was diagnosed with a rare and serious form of epidermolysis bullosa, which meant his skin could tear apart at the slightest touch or bump.

Since then his life has been a lot different from other kids his age, often missing out on the everyday joys of childhood.

He has had frequent operations including procedures to open his throat so he can eat and drink and he is very susceptible to infections.

Outright

1st. Pro-Axle 8
2nd. Hoofhearted
3rd. Hoofhearted 12

CHAMP Class

1st. Plan B
2nd. PTK Racing
3rd. Hoofhearted Too

Pro-Axle Pole - William Lucas
CHAMP Class Pole - Jayden Woolley
Fastest Lap of the Race - William Lucas

Secondly, but most importantly, it's time to congratulate the winners of both our championships;

Our Outright championship winners are Kart 90, St Croix racing - regular drivers, Andy Sandlin, Mitch Lozina, Michael Schiller and Drew Russell. From all at 4SKA a massive congratulations on an extreme effort to win the outright trophy for 2018.

With two minutes to go, the championship was on the line, Kart 90 had blown an engine with 20 minutes to go, and had to finish 11th or higher and cross the start finish line within three minutes of the leader. With a minute and a half to spare the kart returned to the circuit with replacement motor fitted to take the title. It was a hollywood finish and the atmosphere was electric.

Our CHAMP Class winners, and so very well deserved, Dieci Racing's who's regular drivers Hayden Cox, Greg Cox and Phil Middleton did a top job all year to take home class honours.

I'd like to personally thank our officials who continue to turn up round on round and provide our growing club with a stable platform to race. To Barry, Santa, Ray, Maxine, Bruce, Murray, Shaun and Joel, thanks again for your time and patience in what is generally a thankless job. Always remember, you're number one.

To my committee, great work, lets keep the momentum going and deliver the projects we have on the table to take this series to a point where we have forty karts at the big tracks - that's our goal, and its achievable.

Briggs 206 is here, and everyone at the track on Friday saw just how promising the future is, the package is fast, the price is right, it's our future and everyone seems excited to embrace it. You can't sit on your hands flogging a dead horse, and while the Subaru has been great for us for many years, the Briggs will be bigger and better.

Lastly, thanks so much to the teams. It's the teams and the people that make this series what it is. Many comment about how well we do things on the people front. We are by far and away the friendliest club I've ever been a part of. We race hard, but we sit around the camp fire eating a Dieci sponsored sausage sandwich after the racing and drinking an ale and have a laugh about the weekend.

Our new rule book is not far away, it will be practical, it will make sense, and it will make your life easier, its a common sense approach to club karting. Our calendar will be announced in the next month, and I will be writing to you all soon with how you can start preparing for season 2019.

Get those RSVPs in for the Christmas Party Presentation night, we need to know who's coming on the night we crown our champions.

 

Congratulations Les Green on Officiating at over 100 meetings.

Les first got the Karting bug when he had a day at Newcastle in1992 and then started Karting at Combined District Kart Club with his
daughter in Arrow karts.
Les entered his first race meeting in 1993 at Wollongong Kart Racing Club and finished in 5th place in the clubman light class.

In 2002 when he attended the Over Forties meeting, he met Jeff Tressider who suggested he should try speedway.
He couldn’t believe that there was a speedway track nearby, NSW Speedway Kart Club at Nepean.

He won some titles & championships with the club, however, found the fun and all the family orientated people were the best of all!
Les then joined another club, Central Coast Speedway Kart Club at Gosford and found this club was friendly & had a family feeling, too.

About 2004 he became a scrutineer for NSW Speedway Kart Club then in
2013 he became a clerk of the course. Les stopped racing at 65yrs and has put all his energy into Officiating at many different clubs.

Les is a life member of NSW Speedway Kart Club.

With anticipation growing for Round One of the KNSW 2019 State Sprint Title in just over a month’s time, Host venue Griffith has strategically scheduled an event for those wanting to have a hit out prior.

Nominations are now open via MyKarting Portal so take advantage and get to Griffith this Saturday and Sunday to bed in some of our Maxxis dry and Dunlop wet tires.

Also, on offer this weekend is “Sunday Speedway” action with Round 2 of the Central Coast speedway kart club championship. Many a dirt speedway competitor has gone on to bigger and better things.  Ian Madsen has gone on to compete in the World of Outlaws Sprintcars in the US and just last week added another victory to his fantastic career.  Lady racer Katelyn Hickey has also gone on to race thundering Dirt Late Models to great success.  In the most recent Australian title, she finished a very creditable 9th in a stellar field.

Karting is growing again in NSW so get your backside trackside.
