Is that because of how much the costs have blown out of reach for an average family?



Exactly

The current happenings in the Karting world against Karting Australia, of which Mick Doohan is the head of, says it all. Karting NSW this week announced it was breaking away from KA, one of the main reasons being that costs have blown out for the average club karter and participation levels are plummeting, the general feeling being that KA have more interest in the elite levels and have not kept the average karters in mind when they make up 99% of the karting community.

Not quite true - Karting NSW is holding a vote of its clubs about breaking away, has not broken away yet, although it may well happen.

Muz is accusing me of making this thread ridiculous???

Whatshisname started this thread on 1/8, it then got a response 1 & 1/2 hours later. Then I posted 5 weeks later. Muz didn't even notice this thread.

Hopeless.



Apologies, I didnít feel the need to post until recently. Is that ok for you, your royal flogness?

That's something a 15/16yo, or a mid-20s female momentarily frustrated at her boyfriend, would ask.

It's not compulsory for a son to follow his father's footsteps. Sometimes kids deliberately do the opposite.

Jack Doohan may simply prefer cars over bikes.

Just asking a question based on your comments. Still seems legit to me.

Has happened now, pretty overwhelming vote as expected, and great to see

Hopefully karting in NSW can start building again after the last few years under a Doohan-led KA.
