AKA press release

Following on from its successful return to Australian circuits this year the Australian CIK Championship is set to expand in 2010.

Designed to provide the Australian karting community with a distinct elite level of the sport, the 2010 Australian CIK Championship will continue the build on the foundation of the KF2 category from this year while also including the KZ2 (formerly Intercontinental C) and the KF3 (formerly Junior Intercontinental A) categories.

Also on the schedule for next year’s championship, which will run in stand-alone events to provide competitors with significant track time, is a Pro Clubman and Pro Junior National class.

The championship will be contested across four rounds, all evenly spread to ensure they don’t clash with already scheduled state and national title events, in three states.

The Mount Sugarloaf circuit in Newcastle will host the opening round of the series on March 5-7 ahead of round two in Ipswich, Queensland on May 7-9. The series will then head to Sydney’s Eastern Creek Raceway on June 18-20 with the final round scheduled for August 6-8 in Victoria. *date and venue to be confirmed by the Victorian Karting Association

“Since returning to Australian tracks at the start of this year the Australian CIK Championship has built a fair bit of momentum and I’m excited to be expanding the series in 2010,” said Series Organiser Peter Galvin.

“The CIK Championship has always been aimed to provide an opportunity for the best drivers in the country to race at the top level. Now, by incorporating the KZ2 and the KF3 categories – along with the Clubman and Junior National classes - the series is more attractive to a wider audience.

“We have worked hard in an attempt to incorporate the championship dates around the existing state titles and major events to ensure the series is attractive to as many top line competitors as possible.”

Further information on prizes and other details will be advised as they are finalised.

Competitors should contact Peter Galvin on 0433 042 900 to register their interest for the series or obtain further details and technical regulations.
