 What is the Formula 100 Titan Series?

This is a high level series which promotes the fastest single engine direct drive class in the country.  This class is all about speed, grip, diversity of equipment and full on aggressive machinery.  Minimum license requirement is B Grade which helps to ensure a higher  level of driver experience.  The series is designed to run on the best circuits, with the best officials and a points system which is fare for all.  Common sense and fairness are the series promoter's objectives.  All entrants are treated with respect as they are the people who make the series possible.  This is the only viable series in Australia where karters can race the most exciting machinery available to the rank and file karter.  Awsome series prizes are within reach of all competitors.  Just stand at the fence and listen to the screaming open 100cc engines and you soon understand why so many drivers are returning to the best kept secret in karting – Formula 100.

What is the aim of this series?

The aim is very simple,  to promote the best class in Karting, Formula 100 to its true potential.  To organise and co-ordinate quality races for the class, whilst endeavouring to offer some great prizes along the way.  Lets face it there are a number of Karting shops and individuals out there who always try to hurt the class with false information. Its time we set the record straight and return this class to the top of the pile in Australian Karting. Most engines can be purchased for far less than the cost of what junior karters are paying for a decent J engine - no wonder Formula 100 competitors are always smiling!
