May have escalated quickly, but fell off the cliff soon after. However the chat needs to continue to see what more of the Superkart community think the sport needs.

Agreed Ashley.  We have 2 of our South Aussies racing this weekend at a NSW club meet at SMP.  Will await their thoughts on what they saw.

Apart from enjoying themselves, they were seeing how it is done elsewhere ...........  you only race at home all your life and never go interstate then all you know as normal is what happens on your own doorstep.
 
Of interest was firstly who are the NGB drivers,  have they all got nosecones , are they all 16 or 60 years of age.  To run our sport nationally we need to know what is required to cover all the bases,  so although this information is at the fingertips of each club,  they rarely communicate so we get no overview.   

Next was to look at the mixing of classes,  it is not something we do here in SA,  and at each Nationals event they have attended the classes have been split.  So just being on the track and understanding how it was arranged is useful information.

Brandon Stillwell and Jim Gorman have raced in Qld, NSW , Vic and SA this year,  so their thoughts on how each state does its thing, how the different tracks and organisers do their thing,  it is all information gathering.   And Jim wants to move to a Stock Honda in 2017,  so he has very few of them to study here at home but he has had that opportunity when he went away. 

Here in SA we have one track and one man owns and runs it.  We do as he tells us or we cannot race. What the boys learned from the NSW organisation was they ran the Superkarts at a 2 day event,  but only went on track on Sunday.  The Saturday spot was taken by the Radicals.  So that's an idea when we get offered a 2 day meeting here at Mallala and another category also feels like they don't need to be out there for both days , we share the event with them and each of us gets what we want , without both of us missing out on a prime race meeting.

There are many little things we can all do to improve our sport,  but the sharing of organisation skills and the like is one that 95% of competitors never think about,  that's left to the 5% and they are just so busy "doing" that they have no time left to think about and make changes..

Was a pity the weather turned nasty for them towards the end, hope they took home some info and hardware.
