Lots of Change Ahead for Aussie Karting

Karting Australia today announced it's plan for the sport in this country. Key elements include the introduction of 60cc Vortex Mini Rok and 100cc IAME Reedjet engines to replace (over a period of time) Comer SW80, Yamaha S & J. State and National Championships will be re-structured to a series of events for limited classes rather than one-off meetings. Much much more is included in the 110-page "Whole of Sport Review" document which can be downloaded from the KA website HERE (PDF, 4Mb). The official statement from Karting Australia is HERE.
