2016 Motorsport Zone Superkart Series Information

motorsportzone logo

The 2016 Motorsport Zone Superkart Series Entry information sheet is attached. Please read carefully. This year we have 6 race meetings, 5 x 2 day and 1 x 1 day, split between Lakeside Park and Queensland Raceway. Entry cost has gone up to $295.00 for every meeting to try and cover the cost of each slot but you get about twice as much race time for the small increase in entry cost. If you can only race on 1 of the 2 days, you will need to contact the Race Secretary, Roger Amiss, to make sure he can clear it with Queensland Raceways.
As per last year, we have 2 slots per race meeting. They will now be named 250 Superkarts and 125 Superkarts (which will include 85cc Gearbox) so its easier to remember. More information inside the attachment.
The Queensland Superkart Club Inc has been around for 40 years this year (was first know as the Queensland Road Race Kart Club) and on the 31st of March, it is 42 years since the first ever Superkart race meeting in Queensland. If the last few years are anything to go by, enthusiasm for Superkart racing in Queensland is getting bigger every year.
Will you be there?

Phasing out of LEADED RACING FUEL (Avgas)

The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport has recently received advice from the Federal Minister for the Environment, the Honorable Greg Hunt MP, on the considerations for phasing out of the use of lead across Australia. The Department for the Environment has requested CAMS to provide comment to the Department on the use of lead in racing fuel. CAMS is aware that many members of the Historic Motor Sport community, in particular 5th Category Historic competitors, continue to rely on leaded racing fuels for both the reliability and performance of their vehicles in competition.
