2014 Come N Try Day
The inaugural 2014 DKA Come-N-Try / Sign-on Day will be on Sunday, 23 March
2014 between 08:00 am and 11:00 am.

The organisation of the day is being done by other committee members.
I'm not sure of the exact agenda, but based on past events of this type,

1) DKA club members attend for membership sign-on and licence
2) New members attend for membership sign-on and licence payment,
3) Come n Try visitors attend and register - AKA insurance requirements,
4) Those members with karts will provide them to the 'come n try'
participants based on age / class criteria and provide the necessary
instruction and advice.

It's best to get there by 8:00 am as there are AKA restrictions on
Cadets/Rookies, Juniors and Seniors running on the track together.

You just need to bring yourselves. Make sure you've all got sturdy footwear,
with jeans and a long sleeve shirt for the prospective driver.
Helmet, gloves and a suitable kart will be provided.

You'll also need to complete a standard AKA form and waiver document for
insurance purposes. This can be done on the day.

If under 18, a parent or guardian to be present at all times.

Based on age, size/weight, experience and aspirations, this will determine
the class of kart.

In the meantime, jump onto the AKA website and check out some of the videos.
These things will give you insight into

Australian Karting Association Ltd Chairman Mick Doohan has announced Kelvin O’Reilly as the governing body’s new Chief Executive Officer today.

Australian Karting Association Ltd Chairman Mick Doohan has announced long-time Australian motorsport administrator Kelvin O’Reilly as the governing body’s new Chief Executive Officer today.

Karting will be the fourth motorsport category for Mr O’Reilly who has held numerous roles within the sporting and corporate arena. His experience covers sporting, administration, technical process and control, governance, marketing and commercial areas within organisations including the Touring Car Entrants Group (TEGA), TOCA Australia (FIA Super Touring), Gold Coast Motor Events and Rally Australia.

The strength and appeal of Karting in Australia was demonstrated by the overwhelming response to the role from local and international candidates.

“We had an incredible response for the new role of Chief Executive Officer with many high caliber applicants and we’re delighted to be able to have Kelvin join Karting as we enter the new era,” said Doohan.

Mr O’Reilly will officially begin his role as CEO of the Australian Karting Association on September 1.

"I'm looking forward to working with the Board and Karting Community to finalise the transition to the new corporate structure and long term direction of Australian Karting,” said O’Reilly.

"In conjunction with the Board of Australian Karting Association Ltd I look forward to being able to assist them and guide Karting as a sport in Australia as both a participation sport in its own right for all ages and as an enhanced 'breeding ground' for our future motorsport Champions.

"I look forward in the first few months to meeting with and working with the people that make Karting tick and to ensuring that the future of Karting in Australia realises the vision that the Board and all of our participants have for the sport.”

The AKA has in excess of 7,000 members with 92 Clubs across the country. The Association sanctions more than 700 race meetings and events annually across all States and Territories.

Mick Doohan, Chairman and Competition Director, is joined on the Australian Karting Association Ltd Board by Bradley Collins (Technical), Melissa Holzberger (Administration), Phill Smith (Finance) and Sam Moreton (Marketing).

Thailand Rotax Invitational - BRYCE FULLWOOD
In his first overseas event, Darwin driver BRYCE FULLWOOD finished second in the Thailand Rotax Invitational at the Bira International Race Circuit in Pattaya, Thailand. He then backed this performance up a day later at the same venue with a victory in the Fourth Round of the Thailand Rotax National Series.

Fullwood, supported at the event by his parents Brad and Kelly along with younger sister Kasey and long-time mentor Graham Powles, started the weekend by qualifying second fastest in the Thailand Rotax Invitational. He continued this form through the heat races and led the way for the majority of the pre-final before finishing second. After a huge downpour delayed the start of the finals, Fullwood lined up on the grid for the final in wet conditions. Unfortunately, Fullwood’s kart set up wasn’t quite right and local driver Veravich Wongsanganan drove away with the win, Fullwood still managed to secure a very credible second place with the rest of the pack quite a fair way back.

The following day in Round Four of the Thailand Rotax National Series Fullwood was determined to go one better, and he did. In the opening few laps of the 14-lap final, Fullwood opened a commanding lead to take the win well clear of Wongsanganan, who was later excluded for a non-confirming carburettor.

VIDEO - 2013 CAMS AMSF Elite Driver Development Camp

This week twelve of Australia's most promising drivers including our own Bryce Fullwood gathered at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra to learn about what it takes to be a professional athlete in motor sport.

Aged 13 to 19, they were put to the test in more ways than one.

They all share the dream of making it to the top in motor sport and they all are hoping this intensive week long training camp will help them make that happen.

This is their story.
