As more details come to hand regarding the NZ Champs I will let you know. Entries to me (Angela Rae) by Tuesday, 21st February.
NOTE: At the bottom of the newsletter are links to the Club Champs entry form, NZ Champs entry form and Driver information sheet along with the NZ Kart Rules. Please ensure you enter and pay by the due date for these events as entries received after these dates mean you start off the back of the grid for every race. Thanks to those who have already entered.
This year we will be presenting trophies for the Most Improved Karter, Hard Luck Award and Karter of the Year as voted by YOU. Who do “you” think is the Most Improved Karter from any of the grades? The Hard Luck Award is for the karter who perhaps has blown a motor or a tyre during a crucial race or perhaps just generally has bad luck and then the Karter of the Year can be from anyone you think is just generally a great person, is perhaps helpful in fixing your kart, gives great advice or who is just generally helping in any way they can? Voting papers are to be handed in before Club Champs.
If you know of anyone who has a paddock available for the Club to race on please let one of the Committee know as it’s greatly appreciated to have new venues to race at.
These will be published to our website www.sckartclub.co.nz and shared on our Facebook page South Canterbury Grass Kart Club. Please check out our website for news and race dates.
A big thanks to all our volunteers that help out leading up to and on our club days, your help is greatly appreciated.
