Race Reports From Across The Country

Thanks to an increasing number of kind contributors, today we're able to publish reports, photos and results from events in Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania and NSW for the rest of the karting community to see.

As can be seen from today's list, KartSportNews will publish news from pretty much any karting event in Australia - whether that be a major championship or a regional club-level event. Links to the most recent reports are below.

  • Reports and photographs can only be published if we actually receive them! If a race meeting you attended has not appeared on KartSportNews, you can be pretty sure we never received anything. Are you, or someone you know, able to organise sending reports and pics to us soon after an event? If so, take a look at the requirements for article submission HERE.
