A Different Format For Round 2 Of SAKC

The second round of this year’s championship will see something a little different. Due to the the AFL grand final taking place on Saturday the 29th and it being a long weekend the decision was taken to move racing to a Sunday/Monday format and not the normal Saturday/Sunday format. 

Saturday will see pit allocation and free practice that would normally take place on the Friday. Also, for all you karting footy fans we will have the grand final on in the clubrooms and the canteen & bar will be in operation.
