A Message From The SGKC President

To the Australian Karting Community,

Some days are challenging, some frustrating, some disappointing and some just make you angry. Unfortunately, yesterday was a day that was a rollercoaster of all of them put together. In my time as President of the club, nearly six years, it was the most difficult day that I can remember.

I would like to take the time to thank a few people, or maybe quite a few.

Firstly, to the Club Executive and General Committee, thank you for your continued efforts throughout this year and especially the large efforts in organising the SA Kart Championship. Your efforts do not go unnoticed.

To the club volunteers who have been spending a significant amount of their own time at the club on the various maintenance and construction projects throughout the year, and previous years, thank you! I will not mention everyone as it is a very long list. Your efforts have transformed what were some rapidly ageing facilities into a much more functional and presentable facility. There is more to go, but I am confident with the drive and commitment of the current group of people we have, the vision for the club will become a reality in the very near future.

To the state and national level official’s, thank you for your continued support of the club and the competitors. Without you giving your time we cannot host race meetings. We look forward to continuing working with you to run successful race meetings in the future.

To the competitors, local and interstate, thank you for your support of the club. This weekend would have been the largest race meeting at the club for several years. We had entries from every state except Tasmania; we thank those people who entered from interstate and committed to travel and support our sport and the club. We also thank the local competitors for their continued support.

To Karting Australia, to have a national body that is willing to help in the planning of these events and then assist in assessing extremely difficult situations, make appropriate decisions and then support and back those decisions make the club’s job much easier. Special thanks to Lee Hanatschek for taking, and making, far too many phone calls.

Lastly, a few special mentions,

Steve Nicolson

Ian Watson

Danny Miller

The amount of time, effort and coordination spent by these three guys at the club over the last few months is over and above what anyone would expect. Quite simply, the club would not be in the position we are in without each one of you. Thank you just does not say enough, as I am sure all club members will attest to.

With the continued support of the greater karting community the club is now looking forward to running successful local and national level events in the future. We look forward to welcoming karters from all over the country, especially those that were able to show support for our event that was planned for this weekend.

Thanks,

Brett Fortanier

SGKC President

KZ2 Cash Prize 2020 State Championships

Question for all those KZ2 drivers out there.
Is there anything better than hauling one of these absolute weapons around one of the best tracks in the country?
If you said no then you are wrong!
Why? Becuase if you haul your KZ2 over the line in 1st place in the final you’ll be taking home a $500 cash prize!!! Now that’s a cherry 🍒
Does it get better than that? No you say? WRONG!
If we get 20 KZ2 karts we’ll double it! Yep, a cool $1000 for the winner. There may not be a ‘Blue Plate’ on offer but for a grand you could buy a hell of a lot of them 😉
So get your cog swapper ready, get entered and make your run for that sweet, sweet cash money baby 🤑🤑🤑
