Coupled with the increasing numbers across the other States, there has now been more than 150 individual drivers take to the circuit aboard four-stroke powered karts in the 4SS class.
Australian engine manufacturer, Torini, recently announced last month that the 500th engine had been bult in Australia.
Numerous Clubs and State Association are also using the four-stroke karts as a part of their introduction programs such as their Come and Try and Bring a Mate Days. This has proved to be highly successful in various regions.
