Finally, we are able to give you details of our September Club Day. (Sunday 13 September)
September 13 Club Day will be our (Covid 19) 2020 Club Championships. Club Champion and GP Champion
Our Club Championships is normally run over 3 rounds, Reverse Track and two other club days, but with Covid -19 and the karting calendar getting condensed, it has made it difficult for the club to do this format. So a one off Club Championship will be run at our September 13 Club Day. There will be no Reverse Champion awarded this year.
You need to be a financial member of Kartsport Manawatu to be eligible for a trophy.
We have to be prepared to run Under Covid-19 Level 2 conditions.
