NSW Superkart Club Racing at Wakefield Park A Success!

01/05/04

This just in from Kevin Hartin Superkart Club of NSW

With round 2 of the club championship run and won at Wakefield Park last weekend, we can take time to look back on what was a very successful promotion for the club.

We had 12 non club members take up the offer to go racing with us on the Wakefield Park permit and licensing scheme and every one of them had a ball. The gaggle of Rotax MAX sprint kart drivers certainly got onto the long circuit requirements fairly quickly and ended up taking out all three places for the day.

Already, we have snagged a new/old member in Colin Moore, who didn't have to ask twice when his missus and former Superkarter, Linda (nee Mapp) told him to go and get his CAMS license and get back into regular racing. No doubt there will be a few more to follow as word gets around about our style of racing.

NSW Superkart Club Running at Oran Park Under AAA Permit

This courtesy of the Kevin Hartin NSW Superkart Club

30/11/01

As of my last, very positive posting on November 6th, we were going to run our scheduled race meeting at Oran Park on December 7th utillising a permit from the AAA rather than a CAMS event permit. 

It seems that CAMS was not too impressed about that and have brought to bear pressure on the management of Oran Park, which would more than likely have a bearing on Oran Parks activities and or outstanding insurance claims, resulting in a reversal of their earlier decision to accept our booking with AAA insurance.

To add further insult, Oran Park are happy to run non racing activities such as Open and Closed Practice, Sprints, Lap Dashes and Corporate drive days under the cheaper AAA insurance coverage, but deem that the risk is too great to trust this insurance to be sufficient for a race meeting where experienced drivers take to the track in a highly controlled environment with paramedics in attendance.

Special thanks should go to those determined interstate Superkarters that are working hard behind the scenes to undermine our NSW's efforts to engineer a way for the NSW club to resume racing and have closed their minds to any alternative to CAMS. We may not be as politically astute as others at this time, but I can assure everyone that it takes a lot more than that to kill a cockroach.

I could go on and enlighten you all to the goings on over the past two weeks, but I fear that the CAMS and Oran Park Solicitors don't need the extra work, nor can I find any provisions in CAMS annual report for further expense in an environment of rising costs, falling membership, disappearing race meetings and increased competition from our friends at the AAA. 

At least, we are yet to be given the pineapple treatment for the Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular, with more entries continuing to come in taking our total to 68.

NSW Superkart Club Running at Oran Park Under AAA Permit

This courtesy of the Kevin Hartin NSW Superkart Club

Just when we thought we had had the last of the very few race meetings in NSW for 2003, we have managed to secure a permit that will allow us to race at Oran Park on December 7th. This will be the final round of our much truncated 2003 NSW Club Championship.

Thanks to the efforts of the AAA, the NSW Superkart Club will be the first club to run a race meeting in NSW with insurance coverage from someone other than CAMS. The AAA, led by a consortium of well known track owners, has run a few meetings under their cover in Victoria and are in negotiations for a number of prominent events during 2004.

After much due dilligence on behalf of the club executive, we are satisfied that a AAA permit provides an equivalent level of cover that we have come to expect from CAMS, but at a lower cost and with some sensible concessions that will see additional reductions in running costs at the race meeting.

In addition, as the AAA has their own licensing regime, it allows participation by non-CAMS license holders, such as those with AKA licenses. As a result we expect to see additional entrants in Rotax MAX and 125cc Gearbox classes, with regular sprint karters trying out the long circuit.

Superkart Racing at Wakefield Park

August 10th 2003

This just in from Kevin Hartin NSW Superkart Club VP

After a trip down south to Wakefield Park by club executives Kevin Hartin and John Pellicano, it has been announce that NSW Superkart Club (NSWSKC)  have negotiated a place as a support category at the State Championship meeting to be held at Wakefield Park on Sunday August 10th.

For those that have followed the recent happenings, it was looking good for NSWSKC to once again run with the bikes at Oran Park on August 10th. That was up until a couple of days ago when it became clear that Oran Park had lost their track license to run Bikes on safety grounds .

John and Kevin did a track inspection of Wakefield Park and are happy to report that the areas of concern  to superkarts in the past have been addressed to the NSWSKC's satisfaction. The double right hand corners at the top of the hill has been fixed where the new extension meets the old circuit and the braking area at the last turn has also been smoothed out considerably. There is the option to either run the superkarts on the new last corner or the old, which is what the karts have usually run.

A final decision on which track configuration used will be made after practice.

Entries for this meeting are to go back to Wakefield Park, along with the entry fee of $180.00 AUD

 It is imperative that our members support the exec in attending this meeting as it may well be your last opportunity to race in NSW this year. Also, if we get at least 25 superkarts to the track, we are looking good for a place as a support category at a series of four meetings to be held at Wakefield Park during 2004, featuring Touring Cars and other popular crowd drawing categories which will be confirmed subsequent to the successful promotion of this event.

It cannot stressed enough that you must make every  efforts to support this meeting as the future viability of Superkarting in NSW may well depend on its success.

Kevin Hartin

Vice-President NSWSKC

Qld State Superkart Titles

Morgan Park Raceway

Warwick QLD

This just in from courtesyof  the Superkart Club of NSW website and penned by Paul Battle

QLD State Titles 

24-25.5.03

A small contingent of seven drivers,with entrants in the 80,125 and twins, made the trek to sunny but cold (and dusty, is it dusty Joe?) Warwick for the Queensland state titles at the recently upgraded Morgan Park track. A great drivers track but pretty bumpy in places.
Friday practice turned sour for Warren Mcillveen when his brake pedal went to the crash bar at one of the fastest parts of the track and went head on into the tyre barrier. With the kart bent like a banana, his weekend appeared to be over before it even began. But with the help of our guys, a few locals and three old drums of petrol he was back in action. The kart practically as new. He then proceeded to win all races and take the 250 title.
In the 125’s the result was the same with Anthony Zullian sweeping all the races for the 125 title.
Three representatives took part in the 80 class. Ross Hansen, Doug Ward and Paul Battle. With no practice before racing commenced they had their work cut out for them. Paul only getting two laps in qualifying after a broken battery connection. Pole went to local Chryss Jamieson with our guys lining up 13th,14th, and 15th.
Race one saw Ross finish second, Paul third and Dougy in fifth position after having to fight through slower traffic.
In race two, Paul just beat home local Jason Smith, Ross fell victim to a mysterious carby problem and Doug crossed the line fourth.
Third race saw all karts combined adding to the excitement. Paul won again, Ross a close third and Doug not to far back in fifth.
The fourth race shaped to be close between Ross and Paul but unfortunately Ross suffered a puncture and steadily slowed to be fifth at the flag leaving Paul to take the win while Dougy raced hard for fourth.
Unusually there were five races but only the first four counted towards the title. Paul won comfortably after the chasing pack got caught up with some slower 125 drivers. Dougy was third after a great race with Ashley Jamieson and Jason Smith. Ross DNS’d after a previous off on Saturday left him with bruising too sore to continue.
A top weekend was had by all. NSW drivers claiming every class they contested.
Thanks to the QLD superkart club who organised extra pits for us and a BBQ at a nearby motel on saturday night helping to add to the atmosphere.
There is a meeting there in July, so anybody thinking of going should make the trip (approx 10 hours drive). Especially since we don’t have a meeting for a few months.

Paul Battle.

CANCELLATION OF RACE MEETING

 ORAN PARK RACEWAY

 29TH JUNE 2003  

This info courtesy of Kevin Hartin Vice President of the NSW Superkart Club

It is with regret that the New South Wales Superkart Club Executive have been forced to cancel the race meeting scheduled for June 29th at Oran Park South.

The refusal of CAMS to issue Permits for us to run race meetings in conjunctions with Motorcycle clubs, has forced us to go on the hunt for other Car clubs to run meetings in conjunction with, a task that has proved impossible at such short notice. For more on this issue
Click Here

With many clubs already committed to a calendar for 2003, the Executive is focusing on opportunities to partner up with other car clubs to jointly run meetings for the remainder of 2003 as well as actively pursuing avenues that will enable us to renew our long term arrangement with the Motorcycle racing fraternity.

CANCELLATION OF RACE MEETING

 CALDER PARK RACEWAY

 8TH JUNE 2003

 It is with regret that the Committee of the VSKC advises it members of the cancellation of  Round 5 (Relay Event) which was scheduled to be held at Calder Park Raceway on 8th June 2003.

 The information we have received from CAMS is as follows: 

  • Calder Park Raceway was placed in the hands of Administrators in March this year, and they were, we understand, instructed to “wind it up”
  • CAMS have been negotiating since this time, for Calder Park to renew its Track Licence, due to there being a number of race meetings scheduled this year
  • The Administrators indicated to CAMS that they were trying to source alternative Insurance cover for the track
  • CAMS gave Calder Park Administrators until 5pm Thursday 15th May 2003 to respond
  • By Monday 19th May 2003 CAMS had received in writing from the Administrators, a letter stating that they no longer wanted a track licence for motorsport to be held at Calder Park.

 The result of this is that as members of CAMS, we will not run any meeting without a Permit issued by them.  This permit gives us insurance cover in case of accidents.  CAMS have indicated today that they will not be issuing a Permit for our June race meeting.

 CAMS regrets that at this stage they have not been able to rectify the matter more successfully, but have confirmed that they will continue to negotiate with the Administrators.

 A “Press Release” to the media advising of Calder Park’s current situation and future will be issued by CAMS shortly.

 Please understand that as the Committee for this Club we are responsible for ensuring that Members and their teams  are appropriately covered  by Insurance whilst at any race track and as such must adhere to the regulations supplied by CAMS.  We trust Members understand that this situation is completely out of our control.

Morgan Park Transformed

Courtesy QLD Superkart Club website

(20-10-02)

 
Morgan Park Raceway in Warwick has undergone a radical transformation. 
The track has virtually doubled in length and boasts four different configurations.
 
 
The surface is billiard table smooth and runoff is good (apparently designed with v8s in mind).
Ripple strips are not too severe and there doesn't appear to be any problem with track/off-track surface heights.
 
So as you can see the layouts are exciting, especially Track D & E.
 
I think the track will be a winner for all classes and challenging to drive.
Track E with over 10 turns and theoretical top speeds of V8s over 200 at T4,5 & 7.

CAMS Schedule of Fees for 2003

Appendix R

This information courtesy of the Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS) website www.cams.com.au

CAMS Statement
22 Oct 2002
In response to the requests of our members, please find enclosed a version of Appendix R listing CAMS fees for 2003 as passed at the Board Meeting on Friday 18th October. The final fees will appear in the 2003 CAMS Manual of Motor Sport, due for release in December.

It is envisaged that there will not be changes to the listing attached herewith.

Due to the communication that we have received from club delegates in 2002, we have introduced a 4 tier fee structure for club affiliation in 2003. These fees will assist the smaller CAMS affiliated clubs which is important considering that some of these clubs with less than 40 members are our most active in relation to motor sport activities and event organisation.

The majority of licence fees and permit fees have seen a 3% CPI related increase for 2003, however, there has been a reduction in speed event permits and motorkhana state championship permits.

We hope this assists your club’s event budgeting process for 2003 and ask you to please make use of your state office if you have any queries relating to the organising of a motor sport event in the coming year.

As approved by the CAMS Board on Friday 18 October 2002
Note: Fees subject to change at any time

Senior Superkart Competitors Badges

This just in from Bob Roberts

What is it I hear you say?  Let me elaborate a little.

It has became very evident to me that, since traveling south to various state meetings and attending the Nationals at Phillip Island in 2002 it was quite evident that there were a considerable number of over 50 drivers across all categories still racing and enjoying the sport.

I therefore would like to put forward a proposal that will identify those within the category to be easily identified by some sort of breast patch depicting our seniority. 

After much deliberation  I have concluded that this group should be open to all aged 50 and above competitors. This will enable you to be part of a national group consisting of the more senior members of the Superkart fraternity who have a lot in common.  

To date we have a few in Qld and the interest of Paul Stebbing from Victoria and we are looking for more competitors to set up a network of senior members around Australia. I won’t mention any names but a certain kart manufacturer in NSW is at this time reluctant to become involved even though he meets the age requirement. I also believe from a reliable source that there is also a female competitor n SA who also fits this category. But being a gentleman I won’t reveal her name. 

To standardize the embroidery Geoff Nothdurfts  good lady Ann has agreed, for a very reasonable price, to do any embroidery relating to the group. 

I therefore await your thoughts, suggestions  and ideas for a breastpatch. 

I await your response. I can be contacted at mail to 

Tankvet@bigpond.com.au

 Regards

Issue of permits for 2 X 4 (cars & bikes) in Australia

The Confederation of Australian Motorsport (Cams) has seen fit to renege on its previous undertaking to issue 2 x 4 event permits to organising clubs in Australia.

In a curious turnaround, Cams, evidently acting on legal advice, has made the decision despite the glaring success of the Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular held early in February this year.

Event organiser, John Pellicano of the NSW Superkart Club, put in countless hours of effort, together with the support and assistance of Cams NSW State Manager Peter Tate in an effort to secure 2 x 4 event permits for 2003. The Superkart Spectacular at Eastern Creek went ahead as planned in conjunction with the "Premier 500" motorcycle races as a result of careful planning and co-operation between all facets of the two disciplines of motorsport.

There was considerable initial resistance to the running of the event, despite the previous years successful promotion, due to the different levels of liability insurance that the two controlling bodies (Cams and Motorcycling Australia) have available to them and the attendant issues of insurance cover for officials and such in event of some kind of incident during or between events where there must be a transfer of liability cover between the two insurers, and the question of who would actually cover the claim in event of some kind of accident.

After considerable negotiations between the event organiser and the controlling bodies and their insurers, there was an agreement whereby there would be an interval of 5 minutes between the last bikes coming off the circuit and the first superkarts on the circuit and again at the end of the superkart event there was to be a 5 minute interval after the last superkarts left the circuit and the next group of bikes went on to the circuit for their next event. Although appearing at first glance to be unwieldy to achieve, in practice, the system worked well and the whole 2 day event went ahead smoothly with no cause for concern on any fronts.

It was clearly demonstrated that the two wheel and four wheel variety of motorsport could co-exist comfortably to the satisfaction of the insurers, event organisers and competitors alike.

For whatever reason Cams, supposedly based on legal advice has announced it will not issue permits for this type of event into the foreseeable future placing directly into jeopardy, the running of the 2004 Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular. This event is shaping up as a truly international event as there have been undertakings by some of the top U.S. superkarters to ship out all their race kit for this one event and are willing to comply with all the necessary rules and regulations as laid down by Cams to gain a racing license for this one event. Bear in mind that there is little prize money currently available for the winners of this event and to attract international competitors, willing to travel half way around the world with their superkarts and gear, at their own expense, is a savage indictment of the prestige that this particular superkart race event is held in the world. There is even talk of creating a true world superkart series including Europe, U.S. and Australia as event destinations, hopefully attracting the cream of the world superkarting crop in the process.

It is clear that many, if not all the superkart clubs in Australia, do rely heavily on 2 x 4 events for economic survival and the sudden and unprecedented refusal of 2 x 4 permits places many of the superkart clubs in a position whereby they may be unable to continue to promote race events at any level, and indeed, even remain financially solvent.

Australia has already lost 2 superkart clubs now, forced to close their doors due to financial unviability, directly due to spiraling event  organising costs.

This is a sorry state  of affairs for grassroots motorsport in Australia and a strong groundswell of disapproval is gathering countrywide in response to this latest development.

Urgent action is required by Cams to stem this dissatisfaction amongst the grassroots level of amateur motorsport and deal with the issue of 2 x 4 event permit issue in Oz as they are the controlling body for superkarting in Australia and are ultimately responsible for the future of the sport.....

Expect some interesting times ahead!

CAMS has so far declined to comment on this topic

Stay tuned for more on this issue.

Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular

at Eastern Creek Raceway Febuary 2004

 Its worth noting that there is plenty of real interest in next years event from quite a few guys from the U.S. Subject to licensing and such there should be a couple of hot runners coming over to experience our way of superkarting things and the friendliness and hospitality that Aussies are known the world over for.

The F250E juggernaut rolls onward and upward! we just need to temp a few of the Europeans over now!

This just in from John Pellicano

Dear competitor

 
I am pleased to announce that The 2004 Superkart Spectacular at Eastern Creek has been re-negotiated with the promoter & we are back on board with bells on.
 
The event will again be held in the second week of February & it will be bigger"n"better than ever. I will be pushing for 5 races & prize money for 2004. I have had interest from the Yanks to come & race at the Creek, which would give it a real international feel.......all avenues will be explored for this to happen, even though it is a logistical nightmare. 
 
This early note will give our interstate friends & locals the opportunity to prepare them selves well ahead of time if they wish to participate at this great event. 
 
Please be put on notice that there will be a notable absence next year.........REFUNDS!  A non negotiable issue.
 
Whilst there were more than unacceptable refunds for the event, all of them were legitimate but they all occurred in a a time frame that prevented other competitor to make up the numbers & this affected greatly our budget forecast. This situation jeopardises the viability of the event as we are limited to 60 entrants, we will work hard at making sure this doesn't happen next year. Some punters may be uncomfortable with this situation, my advise would be don't enter if the risk is too high. PLUS.......I will not give up until such time that my vision of 60 machines is realized on the grid for race one.
 
Once again thank for your support & in the mean time we will push forward towards the great event in 2004. There are 355 sleeps to go.
 
John Pelicano (event coordinator)

Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular

at Eastern Creek Raceway Febuary 9th & 10th 2003 

The Premier 500 at Eastern Creek has been run and won for another year and it is notable this year for the almost total domination of the F250E class at the hands of the team Stockman/Honda RS250 juggernaught!

Honors went to 1st Brian Stockman, 2nd Sam Zavaglia, 3rd Warren McIlveen. These guys showed pretty much a clean set of heels to the rest of the F250E pack and deserve much credit for their efforts. The sight and sound of these 3 guys bellowing down the straight and bowling flat out around turn 1 at Eastern Creek should not be easily forgotten by those that had the opportunity to see it.

The other class finishers are as follows:

125 Max No Gearbox: 1st Adam Mckay, 2nd Steve Hider, 3rd David Prest.
 
80cc Gearbox: 1st Ross Hansen, 2nd Paul Battle, 3rd David Amadio.
 
125cc Gearbox : 1st Craig Harrison, 2nd Mick Bakker, 3rd Martin Latta.
 
250 IC/E: 1st Colin McIntyre, 2nd Shane Press, 3rd Greg Bass.

Well done to all those guys.

As for myself (Evan Lyons - Tasmanian Superkart Club) The venerable '92 RS250 Honda made plenty of power but the Zip Eaglet chassis was no match for the other kit on display. Due to dodgey handling, I was forced to back out of it on the high speed turns loosing much speed into turn 2, and was very slow around Corporate Hill. Half way into race 1, the engine backstay/chain tensioner parted company with the axle and I was forced to pit. I was able to repair the offending adjuster later that Saturday evening and after a hurried installation on Sunday morning, out we went. The kart performed well other than some fluffy tuning on trailing throttle/part power but once again, I was well outgunned by the quick guys. Nevertheless, I had a brilliant time and we managed to improve our lap times all afternoon which made all the effort of the trip up to Sydney from Hobart, well worthwhile. 

The NSW Superkart Club had things well in hand over the weekend and special mention must be made of event principle organiser, John Pellicano (NSW). Without Johns persistent efforts, it would be fair to say that the event may not have gone ahead at all! Special mention must also go to the CAMS NSW state office for rubber stamping the event permit.  Without their understanding and support of Superkart racing, 2 X 4 events such as this would not go ahead. Indeed it has been said that 2 X 4 events would never happen again in Australia, largely due to the issues with liability insurance as a result of the recent  turmoil in the insurance industry and the differing levels of cover offered by the different insurers. The sticking points were eventually covered by the insurers insisting on a full 5 minute break between the bike and kart events. Although a bit of a pain, the system hopefully worked well enough to keep the insurers happy and an incident free weekend was had. This should send out a booming message to some state offices that have stated that they will never issue a permit for a 2 X 4 event. These meetings are an essential part of future motorsport in Australia and indeed, they can run concurrently with little or no drama and furthermore, are vital to the continued organisation of all forms of amateur motorsport in Australia. State managers who have  proven to be recalcitrant over this issue need to be made very aware of the repercussions of declining permits for future 2 X 4 events, including their continued appointment of office, with regards to future competitor numbers, and with the ever upward spiraling costs involved for lone clubs running race events. The state managers must not be allowed to discourage organisers forced to share track hire and further associated admin. and medical costs with different forms of motorsport, from attempting to organise 2 X 4 events by denying permits. There is now no valid reason for a state manager to deny a permit for  2 X 4 event as the precedent has been set and all went off well and should be duly noticed by the managers concerned.

The stuff below is courtesy of Kevin Hartin of the NSW Superkart Club

The only thing that Saturday practice confirmed, was that the usual suspects were yet again out the front with strong looking performances. The trio of Blue and Red Stockman/Hondas of Sam Zavaglia, Warren McIlveen and Brian Stockman, looked strong and very fast particularly down the straight into turn 1. Also looking strong was John Pellicano, making his debut with a late model Honda powering his Zip chassis, while Wayne was struggling with carby issues but still putting down respectable times.

The pair of Roses, Sam and Paul, both making their racing debuts continued with the dramas that plagued them on the previous days practice, with Sam eventually packing it in and a full effort put behind Paul driving Alans PVP. The South Australian contingent were quietly working away at setup, with Jason Maros and Rob Oakley looking good, while Gerry Siebert struggled with a slowing engine that eventually saw him miss the first race.

Race 1 saw Stocky make the best first lap that I can remember, starting at the rear of the 250 grid, getting past all the traffic, pulling maybe 100 meters on the field and then continuing to build on that till the chequered flag, in a word, awesome. Warren was slower to get going but soon got clear to take an easy second, while Sam managed to hold of Pelli for the 4 laps and take third. Wayne got an average start and eventually worked his way past the Lombardos, who had plenty of straight line speed, then Rob but it was too late to make an impression on Jason, who finished fifth.

Race 2 ended up fairly similar to race 1 with the Stockman/Honda trio again finishing 1,2,3, but this time Pelli dropped out of contention about mid race with some engine problems that finished his weekend, so it was Jason and Rob that provided the entertainment. I'm not sure who won out there, as my attention was diverted to Wayne who had problems on the warm-up lap and eventually started the race from dead last as the field had already disappeared through turn 1 by the time he got onto the straight to make a start. Despite this setback, he managed to work through some serious 80, 125 and most of the 250 traffic to finish about seventh or eighth, just behind Mario Todarello, who was having his first drive in about two years. Paul Rose was running strong in the mid field and provided a bit of a surprise for Wayne as he re-took his track position after being passed. It looks like the next generation of Rose has a bit of go in him, just like his old man.

I didn't get much sleep on Saturday night as all I could think about was bloody Dellorto carbies and how we would fix the problem that caused Wayne to miss the start of race 2. An early start was in order and after trying all manner of carby settings, in three sets of Dellortos, we settled on a setup that would at least get Wayne back out for race 3.

The PVP/Rotax was looking much better in race 3, but was still not a match for the Stockman/Honda juggernaut that kept rolling on for another 1,2,3 finish. The Rotax powered trio of Wayne, Rob and Jason diced for the first few laps until Wayne made a break and went after Sam. In doing so, Rob and Wayne came together under brakes at turn 2, as Wayne seemed much quicker in the corners but not able to keep with Rob on the straight. Thankfully, both continued undamaged, with the only legacy being some great footage on the video. Wayne almost caught Sam at the finish, but had it not been for the superior power of Sams Honda onto the straight, the PVP, which was much quicker in every corner may have got up for third. No doubt my obviously biased comments will offend some, but I have the video to prove it!!!

The long wait till race 4 gave us plenty of time to look at extracting a bit more straight line speed and ended up fitting a pair of Alan Roses special pipes the showed up well on the dyno. All was looking good until the first run down the straight, where Wayne was well outclassed by the South Australian Rotax pair of Jason and Rob, never mind the blisteringly fast Hondas of Stocky, Warren and Sam. To make a change, Stocky had some competition with Warren taking the lead on a couple of occasions until he had gearbox problems and ended up touring to the finish a lap down. Stocky slowed and was passed by Sam, who looked like he would go on for the win until Stocky passed him on the last lap to keep his 4 wins from 4 starts in tact. It looked like Stocky was playing with Sam and easily blasted past when it counted. Nevertheless, Stockman/Hondas took 11 of the 12 podium finishes for the weekend. Rob managed to hold off Jason for third, while Wayne struggled with a few extra neutrals in the gearbox to finish fifth after getting up to third at one stage.

All in all, despite the utter domination of the Tamworth based team, a good time was had by all and we have some great video footage that will be put up on the web site in the next few days. Congrats to Stocky, Sam and Warren and thanks to all those that traveled from interstate to support the meeting.

Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular

at Eastern Creek Raceway 

Febuary 9th & 10th 2003 

Here is the latest just in from event organiser John Pellicano

18-11-02

Gentlemen,
It is with absolute pleasure that I can inform you that a permit has been issued for Eastern Creek in Febuary for the "Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular" 4x2 meeting. This moment puts an end the titanic battles that I have been having in the last few months securing this permit. This is an achievement that will change the platform for many clubs in Australia & clearly demonstrates you must never give up even when all the doors appear shut & all is doom "n" gloom.
 
We can now start to promote this meeting officially & your support in this area would be much appreciated.  I am hoping to receive good support from Victoria for a change & have no doubt that Graeme Williams will be of the utmost of help.
 
To date there are approximately 41 pre entries, so please encourage fellow member looking at participating to pre enter.
 
Pelly.

I thought it would be appropriate for me to touch base with you & give you an update on the permit situation for Eastern Creek in February that will see us race with the bikes for the first round of the world classic bikes .
 
I am pleased to say that amongst all the heartache of all of this, I am now down to the separation time between events of the bikes to the karts, so all the other crap has either been sorted out of or dismissed by Cams.  We are allocating 5-10min break between the races which is the all important "separation time" required to satisfy our state manager to issue a permit for the event, of course this totally sensible situation may not be viewed positively by other individuals within Cams.
 
The promoter will be using this time to provide nourishment to the on track officials along with making an announcement over the PA that the small break being had is in fact to facilitate  a smooth passage for this 2x4 meeting to move ahead & hopefully demonstrate to other states that NO doesn't always mean NO.
 
This permit is coming with some concessions that I fought hard at trying to avoid but to no avail. The permit fee for 2003 club events is to be $1330 but because the event has importance to us & is infact a club event & I am desperate for it to happen, Cams has seen fit to charge us a multi-club permit of $2500 even though there are no other clubs involved,  I believe this is outrageous but they had me over a barrel for the event. Incidentally, this will not be the case for normal club 2x4 meeting in the future regarding the permit fee.
 
I have been told that a permit Number will be in my hot little hands within 2-3 days............SO, look out ! I can start make plenty of noise in promoting the event.
 
I cannot stress enough the co-operation of our CAMS state manager...............please, if the opportunity arises for any of you, give him a big wrap, he does deserve iand t he has been fantastic even though I have threatened him with a horses head.

Febuary 9th & 10th 2003

After a very successful event in 2002 , the Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular is slated again for Febuary 2003!

There were many favorable comments from both bike and kart guys regarding this important event in the Australian superkarting scene and the quality and the size of the fields and some very good racing made for some fantastic viewing for the thousands of paying spectators who attended the primarily motorcycle racing event over the 2 days in Febuary 9th & 10th 2002, and the positive talk and comments about the event continues to this day! The "Premier 500" is a motorcycle event of international status attracting some of the hottest fields in historic 500cc bike racing seen in  Australia, including former 500cc GP motorcycle world champions, and the conduct of the large superkart support event field, comprising of over 60 entries in various classes ranging from screaming 80cc gearbox karts up to the thumping F250E big bangers, was exemplary. This was largely due to the combined and Herculean efforts of the event organisers and in particular, the grid marshals on the day and of course, the competitors themselves.

 Due to these marshals efforts, the superkarts were out and assembled in correct order on the grid with plenty of time to spare. A really good effort from marshals and competitors alike. A real positive for superkarting was the exposure to a large and unrelated (to superkarting) spectator base ,who would otherwise probably not get the opportunity to experience the close ,exciting and most importantly, safe form of motorsport afforded by superkarts. The superkarts presented themselves in a timely and professional manner that surely impressed even the most die-hard bike fans. The beauty and appeal of superkart racing at a motorcycle race event of this magnitude is that the technology employed in the design ,fabrication and tuning of a superkart is directly related to a racing 2-stroke motorcycle as most of the technology is motorcycle sourced to begin with and far removed from mainstream car racing except for the 4 wheels. This must surely appeal to the ex-motorcycle racer and spectator alike as a valid, cost effective and most importantly, safer alternative to the relatively dangerous racing motorcycle avoiding the costly crossover to full blown car racing!

There has been considerable debate regarding the running of 2 x 4 events with regards to insurance and liability cover for the marshals and organisers but hopefully this can be ironed out completely prior to this event.

This just in from John Pellicano, Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular event organiser

29/09/02

Dear Superkarters & Legends
 
I am communicating with you with the view of bringing you up to speed with the latest information about the Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular for 2003.
 
The situation at the moment is that we have been invited to participate in 9th-10 Feb with the bikes at Eastern Creek under the same format as the last two years, the situation with the promoter was delicate because he had made alternative arrangements as far as the superkarts as  the major support event are concerned in February due to all this 2x4 insurance and liability crap that Cams (Confederation of Australian Motorsport) is embroiled in..............I put my best foot forward  & negotiated the superkarts way back into the event as a major event support category & with the view of further negotiations with Cams for a permit believing that commonsense will prevail & the event will be allowed to go ahead.
 
A further update can be read below.  My report outlines a meeting had with our State manager Peter Tate.....................READ IT !!!!!!! you will understand why I believe it will happen.
 
The event this year in February was a fitting spectacular & it's success is still being talked about to date. I have been inundated with enquires as to what is happening wit regards to future events.............Thank you, I will do my best again.
 
If you are wishing to participate, the procedure will be similar to past evets.........First 60 machines in - best dressed. 

For those of you that missed out this year & want a run please move briskly. Until such time a permit is had I will accept your written or verbal entry, then your money will do the talking.

 
I will organize a meeting with our Cams State Manager within the next 10 days to finalize either way "The Permit". As information unfolds I will make it available to the group & on our club web site. I will commence putting things in place for the event.
 
Please forward this e-mail to any Superkarters that I have missed, I am hoping good news will travel as fast as the crappy news that I sometimes send, so it wont be long that every body in Australia will have an invite. If there is any further info you require, I am more than happy to help out............Don't ask your mate, ask me.
 
START GETTING EXCITED !!!!!!!
 
John Pellicano.........Event Organizer.
Vice Presidents Report Courtesy of the NSW Superkart Clubs website 5/9/2002
Having run our second race meeting of the year at Oran Park Sunday (1st Sept) on our own without the bikes since the introduction in July of the “taboo 4 x 2 meetings”, it has become overwhelmingly obvious that the days of running our own race meetings is all but over…..unless we wish to continue loosing $2500 per race meeting on top of consistently scratching around for officials at these race meetings or…… “magically”, all our members go racing at once, which appears most unlikely.

Don’t panic ! this limiting situation also prevails in other once strong categories within Cams too & also within the various motorcycling groups that have raced with us to date, but you will be please to know that there are people working hard endeavouring to bring common sense to the tables in both Cams & Motorcycling Australia for structure that hopefully will see 2x4 meetings happen again with workable guide lines.

Bill Wilson (President) & myself last Tuesday 3rd Sept took the opportunity to visit our recently appointed NSW State manager Peter Tate, to outline the state of the nation in a typical Cams affiliated club trying to get on with it’s business of ameture motorsport for its members, within the current climate of motorsport in Australia.

The most notable point was his desire to want to listen to what we had to say & a real desire to help……….rather than that “You will do” attitude that appears to prevail from within & other State Managers at Cams.

The focus of our meeting was, firstly, enquire about the position of the 2x4 permits from his position & secondly, the likely hood of getting a permit for future meetings that would see us enjoy the company of the bikes again for future meetings, I also took the opportunity to stress to Peter Tate the document that currently exists regarding 2x4 meetings issued by a select group from Cams, is totally unworkable & this group responsible for it’s inception have demonstrated rather sheltered lives when it came to understanding the running of a shared meetings with bikes. It was also pointed out that because we use motorcycle engines there is a natural tendency to affiliate with the bikes, rather than cars. In a perfect world there would be no need to share meetings but in today’s climate, it is for financial viability & along, being able to provide with enough officials to run the meetings. I believe Cams has overlooked or dismissed the facts that clubs are like families within a community, when often the resourses of officials are within that family when the club goes racing. Whilst change is inevitable, consideration to the affects on clubs (Families) must be looked at closer, particularly at a time that issues have become so intolerable to clubs that it has lead to more than acceptable cancellations of events in recent times in NSW. This chain of events will ultimately lead to a diminishing revenue stream for Cams.

To cut a long story short there were plenty of good positive things said from both sides that was riddled with common sense for ammeter motorsport, not to mention Superkarting & to Peter Tate’s credit at no point did he dismiss our position, which has happen in the past within Cams. The four things that were said from Peter Tate in the meeting that were of extreme importance to me were as follows :
1) I am not a “Yes” man.
2) I'm interested in NSW not other states.
3) I want ammeter motor sport to prosper in NSW.
4) I approved a meeting (race permit) that Melbourne viewed unfavourably.

Now, being armed with that encouraging information we informed Peter Tate that we would be submitting a permit for a 2 x 4 meeting in October. I must stress at no point was there an affirmative Yes to a “permit” but rather he said lets have a close look at what we can do to sort this situation out that will allow superkarting in NSW to enjoy the type of racing it enoyed for the last five years without a blemish.

This position is the most positive response I have heard in the last 10 months.

Another suggestion that was received positively, to help our position & clearly demonstrate to Cams that we are prepared to co operate with their future vision for the Accreditation of Officials was to extend the accreditation process to the officials of the motorcyle group for future 4x2 events with the view of creating an environment that appeased all parties.

Once again, I take the opportunity of giving Peter Tate the “YA of the Day” he is the biggest breath of fresh air that has come our way for some time. His attitude is squarely aligned with commonsense & I look forward in sharing his optimism for Ameture Motorsport in NSW for the future……we thank you. Pelly.

  07/10/03 Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular

On Again at Eastern Creek Feb. 13 & 14 2004

Event organiser John Pellicano has announced that the Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular will go ahead as planned in 2004 following the decision by Cams to issue 2 X 4 race event permits.

Pellicano reports that the big motorcycle event, which the superkarts support, will be featuring an FIM sanctioned round of the world classic bikes championships. Former multiple 500cc GP bike  world championship title holders Mick Doohan and Wayne Gardner will be appearing as well as many other top ranked motorcycle racers.

I have personally competed at this fantastic, well organised event for the last 2 years and it will be well worth the trip to Sydney.

The grid is limited to 60 superkarts and all classes will run together.

Stay tuned for more info from John as it comes to hand.

Cams Reviews Policy On 2 x 4 Event Permits

Original Decision Not To Issue Further Race Permits Reversed!

In what can only be described as a joyous day for superkarting in Australia. Cams, Australia's motorsport controlling body, has made a positive move with regards to its existing refusal to issue 2 x 4 event permits.

This is a wonderful shot in the arm and a huge relief for superkarting and bike racing organisers in Australia as many of the states rely on shared promotion and costs with the other disciplines clubs for these kart/bike events for survival and to date, very few race events have gone ahead.

This should ensure, with careful event planning and organisation, many future race events for competition starved bike riders and superkarters in Australia.

Cams has stipulated some very strict guidelines to be put in place for each event but these should be a relatively minor inconvenience.

  18/08/03 Latest in on Roger Tapper This just in from Steve Tapper regarding Rogers progress following his serious stroke.

"Dad is progressing very well. He's undergone almost 2 months of therapy now, and the doctors are amazed at his progress. To begin with, the doctors were very negative and didn't expect him to recover at all. He couldn't move at all unassisted, couldn't eat by himself, and didn't really acknowledge anything you said to him. He would just stare at you, trying to work out what you were saying.

I can tell you though, he can now understand the language very well, although he's still struggling to talk back. Hopefully, it won't be long before he spits out a couple of words. He's also eating all his meals by himself with no problems, and he's also able to walk unassisted with a walking stick!

The therapists are happy with how he's doing, so that's really helping everyone stay very positive. All we can do is offer our support and leave the stubborn, determined, grumpy, old man to do it himself :)
We know he's trying, and he will get there."

12/08/03 NSW Superkart Club Race Meeting at Wakefield Park

10th August 2003

NSW Superkart Club completed a long awaited race meeting at Wakefield Park last Sunday and according to club El Presidente John Pellicano, all went very well.

The overnight weather on Saturday proved to be a bit chilly resulting in some damage to some engines from freezing water but other than that the meeting went ahead well as a support category for the State Championship car races held on the same day. Interestingly one of the competitors managed to bar-b-que his kart but all ended well.

NSWSKC are in negotiations now with promoters and organisers of various race events calendared for the rest of the NSW year in an effort to secure more races for their long suffering competitors who have been denied most of their calendared events due to the uncertain climate of liability and permit issue.

  12/08/03 Victorian Superkart Club Event at Phillip Is. a Success!

2nd & 3rd August 2003

Graeme Williams of the Vic. Superkart Club reports that the race day at Phillip Is. held in conjunction with a driver training day/sprint 2 day meeting, organised by the specialist Victorian motorsport officials club PIARC, a success. 44 Victorian entries and 2 competitors who made the long trip across from South Australia, enjoyed fine & sunny weather and shared the event with over 120 cars ranging from hot street specials to Ford GT40 race replicas taking advantage of the fast, flowing & challenging Phillip Is. layout. The viewing areas on top of the pit garages were well crowded with spectators enjoying the superkart action, and for many, it was their first opportunity to get up close and experience superkart racing action. Williams reports that following the success of the joint meeting, discussions are progressing well with PIARC and the superkarts look set to be invited back for further events next year.

23/07/03 M.A Pulls Oran Park Track License For Bikes

Ends chances of 2 x 4 events at this popular NSW circuit in the immediate future

Motor Cycling Australia (M.A.) has recently pulled its bike racing license for Oran Park Raceway in NSW based on safety concerns. This means that any hope of running 2 X 4 race meetings at Oran Park in the immediate future is doubtful. 

Of course this was always subject to the ending of Cams' refusal to issue race permits for joint Cams/M.A. race meetings which M.A. and Cams and their respective insurers have been in discussions and attempting to resolve.

This is a considerable setback for the NSW Superkart Club as their viability depends on sharing costs with other clubs outside of the jurisdiction of Cams, such as M.A..

  22/06/02 Martin Hines and the new Zip Eagle2/Rotax for Laguna Seca this year??? Latest word is that Martin Hines, after successfully testing the new Eagle 2 is set to have a run at Laguna Seca later this year.

This from Eric Severe, Karting Mag.

Zipkart's Martin Hines announced Tuesday, after testing the
Eagle II at Croix in France and breaking the Superkart track
record, that he will join the WSC fray at Laguna Seca!

"Hines commented afterwards: "That was just incredible - to be that quick after 9 years... I've even surprised myself! I have to say, it feels like it was only yesterday that I was racing here. The new Zip Eagle II chassis is absolutely fantastic and what a run that was... Unofficial lap record on day one, now that can't be bad!"

The plot thickens!

 


  19/03/02 2002 ZIP Eagle 11 Coming Very Soon David Hepworth (BDH-ZIP) reports that development of the Eagle 2 chassis is progressing well. Early testing reveals definite improvement over the "old" Eagle. The kart is reported to be very easy to turn into corners and carries good mid corner speed with ease. The frame is less rigid in the mid-section and does not tend to suffer from occasional mid-corner hopping that was an occasional issue with the older Eagle chassis.

More to come. Stay tuned!

"Premier 500"

at Eastern Creek raceway   Feb. 2002

Latest info in from the superkart event organiser John Pellicano:

 

Hello to all..................

Things are progressing well & running smoothly to date. To date, I have 44 entries , with several more to come. So, a full field is looking in order................... great !! 

Supp. Regs.for the meeting will be posted out shortly. 

At this stage, we will have 10 garages available with 4 machines in each, which will account for 40 machines at  $30 per machine for the weekend.....................so you don't have to be a mental giant to work out that there will unfortunately be about 20 machines that have to be catered for on that weekend. We are all going to do the best as possible for each other to help, but any one that has the urge to have a bitch please don't do it with your mate, do it with me so we can fix it !
 
If any of you have the ability to work under your own covered area it would help someone else, then you can click here and let me know.  I am looking at roping off an area at the back of the garages to accommodate the rest of the machines in one group. I looked into undercover arrangements but the cost was not going to be feasible to the group using it.
 
The important objective that I want to achieve is that we are all together as a group, because it is going to be a great & relaxed weekend with plenty of time to enjoy your self................. How I remember it 10 years ago.

"Premier 500"

at Eastern Creek raceway   Feb. 2002

Get you stuff together guys as the Premier 500 is on again in early 2002!

Here is a copy of the letter sent by the race co-ordinator of this event, 

John Pellicano.

Hi Superkarters 
I am pleased to report after meeting with the promoter today of the 'Premier 500' at Eastern Creek for the 9th & 10th February 2002, I have managed to secure the Superkarts in the program. The Premier 500 is a major event made up of Pre 1968 bikes of many classes & also a major championship round for the sidecars. There will be former world champions there Barry Sheen & Phil Reid along with numerous classic bikes from overseas & competitors from all over Australia, the meeting is also heavily advertised/promoted by the promoter. The superkarts enjoyed a very successful weekend in February 01 for our first invitation  & importantly it will be YOUR only chance to race at The Creek in 2002 with a crowd, So get your calendars out & start getting your selves organized for February. I hope to see plenty of our interstate friends ???
 
The meeting will be promoted as "The 2002 Superkart Spectacular at the Creek" with invitations open to all classes with a maximum field of 60 karts. Track time will be 2 practice/qualifying sessions with one race on Saturday & 3 races on Sunday. There will be trophies for each class winner along with sponsor products & possibly some prize money. The entries fee at this early stage is not known but rest assured it will be attractive on a first in, first served basis. You will be sent a letter of expression of interest along with a deposit to be paid in October. I will have as much updated information on the NSW Superkart web page as soon as the finer details are pieced together & ready to go.

I can be contacted at john@giova.com.au,  So if you need any information, I am very happy to assist with any questions or queries relating to the event, so PLEASE! don't rely on people that don't have the answers for information. I am happy to take suggestion on board or anything that will make it better for us...............our agenda is to make it The best Meeting for you !

Well, the Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular as it was dubbed has been run and won for 2002.

Once again, Brian Stockman proved his dominance of superkarting in Australia with a convincing 250F/E and overall win. I don't know what it is going to take to beat this guy. He certainly has the complete package of kart, engine and driver. The after-event presentations at the Blacktown Sportsmans Club were interesting as to some of the (hopefully "toungue in cheek") claims of other quick F/E teams as to how long Brian will/should stay at the top!!!  Heheheh! This guy has dominated every class he has cared to enter (to the considerable chagrin of other competitors) and I have heard some preposterous comments from those guys as to how the likes of Brian Stockman is systematically f--king the classes! Mate, there always has to be the fastest bloke in a class and that is for you to deal with. Looking closely at Stockmans machinery, it's not that extra special. He simply puts in more development and preparation time than most and he can seriously drive. Remember, Brian is a fair shade over 50 and still blitzes the field of much younger blokes. Personally, I see him as a yardstick to try and better, not blame him for ruining classes. You don't have to like him buddy, just beat him!

Anyway, with a lead up to the weekend at the "Creek" that would be more suitable for ducks, the heavens took pity on us and gave consideration to the event and the weather for the two days was fine and sunny after the torrential rain in the weeks leading up to the event.

There were 58 entries that participated over the weekend with 2 late withdrawals.

The superkart races were gridded by class order, fastest to the front  and by qualifying times within those classes with all 58 entries on the grid together. At Eastern Creek, with karts gridded 3 wide across the track the field extended back past the pit entry! A fantastic sight for the better that 6000 spectators over the weekend!

What is noteworthy here is the fact that there was 6 classes of karts competing together with wide speed differences from faster to slower classes with absolutely no incidents occurring between the various kart classes over the weekend, clearly demonstrating that this type of combined classes event can be run with no difficulty. At drivers briefing, event organizer John Pellicano, strongly stressed the point of drivers keeping a close eye on flag signals and karts keeping to their racing lines which would allow the drivers of the faster karts to overtake safely and cleanly, and to the credit of the slower class drivers, they held their part of the bargain and an enjoyable 2 days of racing was had by all.

The field was made up of 19 F/E's, 10 IC/E's, 9 125cc GB's, 12 80cc GB's, 3 125cc NGB (Rotax Max) and 3 100cc NGB's with 39 entries from N.S.W, 10 from Qld, 4 each from Vic and S.A. and 1 from Tasmania. It was interesting to note that Victorian 100cc NGB pilot Darren Formosa broke the Eastern Creek lap record for 100cc NGB karts with a time of 1.54! It was noted that the track was significantly slower than previous years making Darren's' achievement even more noteworthy!

Wi

The Eastern Creek Superkart Spectacular was run as a support event for the Premier 500 motorcycle races which is an event of world standard with many international competitors present and I think that the superkarters and their officials presented and conducted themselves in a courteous and professional manner, thanks largely to the pit marshals, who were responsible for ensuring that the karts were out on the dummy grid in ample time and gridded in their appropriate order. This was no mean feat given the size of the superkart field and the actual amount of room available as the dummy grid was formed up in pit lane and not in the usual dummy grid area. Well done guys!

Special mention should be made of the timing and lap scoring crew who's job it was to sort out the lap times and positions for nearly sixty karts with the faster guys wheeling past at nearly 220KPH! I am certainly glad that I was not up there with them and they deserve long and loud applause for the difficult job they handled. Excellent stuff! I think it would be safe to say that the Dorian electronic system will be the way to go at future combined events.

Ramblings

It was abundantly clear to all present and concerned, that this type of combined 2 + 4 race meeting with combined superkart classes is and will continue to be the way to go to promote the superkart message to many people outside superkarting who would otherwise never get to see the level of performance and safety these machines deliver. For whatever reason there is considerable resistance at superkartings controlling body level to allow these combined (2 + 4) events to continue at all. Indeed, in some states, permits for these events are currently not issued! So special attention was being paid to the running of this event with a view to actually allowing any future combined events at all! Given the level of professionalism and the standard of the spectacle delivered by the superkarts and bikes together, not to mention the financial considerations of sharing ever increasing costs like track hire and safety/medical crews required at motorsport events, it would be foolish of the controlling bodies in question not to give full priority to sorting out any issues, whatever they may be, with the future running of these events. The costs to clubs organizing race meetings is ever skyrocketing and it is a sad fact the some states in Australia are now no longer able to promote race events on their own, given the costs involve such as permit fees, medical staff and track hire and such and ever dwindling competitor numbers forced to shoulder the burden of ever higher entry fees. It is a "Catch 22" that must be addressed at the highest controlling level of the sport in order for the sport to survive, let alone thrive!

Eastern Creek demonstrated for all to see that with good organization and preparation, the concept of running different disciplines of motorsport together at the one event can and should co-exist comfortably together and there is no real reason that this should not continue to be the case in the future.
