One of the distinct focuses of the Board was to provide a clear pathway from Club level through to National Championship level.
There will now be a clear definition of this pathway with nine levels of competition of events within Karting Australia.
Bringing the sport into line with major motor racing categories across the country and around the world, karting’s State and National Championships will be conducted across multiple events from 2015 onwards.
The National Championship, to be named the Australian Kart Championship, will now be contested across six rounds incorporating seven classes (3 CIK classes and 4 Karting Australia classes). These events will be held across a maximum of three days with school age children only practicing on non-school days.
The Rotax Pro Tour will become a National Series while the State Championships will mirror the Australian Kart Championship with multiple events deciding the Champion. The State Championships will feature a maximum of 10 classes of each State’s choice, across a maximum of two days.
