News Archive - December 2013

From the staff at KartSportNews (err, that would be me...) - here's hoping your 2013 has been great and there is much to look forward to in 2014. Celebrate hard with your friends and family, but please, keep it safe - we want to all be around fit and healthy for many years to come! Many thanks to the thousands of readers who visit the site, the contributors and photographers who submit items for publication, and the valued advertisers who support it so it can remain free for you to view.
