It is with sadness that Karting Australia acknowledges the passing of Queenslander Alf Capri.
Alf lost his hard fought battle with illness and passed away on Sunday night.
Alf was one of the founding members of Karting in Queensland during 1958. He is a life member of Karting Australia, Karting Queensland and the Ipswich and Warwick Kart Clubs.
Since hanging up the helmet in the early 1990s, Alf has been instrumental on the technical side of the sport. He previously held the position of Queensland State Technical Officer and was also a Clerk of Course, Steward and Technical Official for many years. Along with his wife Maureen, in 2019 he was the recipient of the Spirit of Speed Volunteer of the Year Award at the Motorsport Australia Hall of Fame Dinner.
Karting Australia on behalf of the entire karting community offers its condolences to Maureen, the Capri family and Alf’s many friends in the karting community.
Alf Capri’s funeral details have been confirmed, but due to current Covid-19 restrictions will be reserved for family and close friends. Alf’s service will be held at 11am on Tuesday the 27th of July 2021 and will be live-streamed
