'LIKE' A NEW FACEBOOK PAGE DEDICATED TO ALL THINGS MASTERS - GREEN PLATE KARTERS OF NEW ZEALAND
TO ALL YOU AGE 40 (and over) KARTERS OUT THERE - BRING IT ON!....
Kartsport Tokoroa welcomes a change by Kartsport NZ to recognise the "more mature" karters out there by recognising them in the NZ Sprint Nationals, NZ Superkart Nationals, and Island Sprints. Announcment follows...
Further to the proposal submitted by KartSport Tokoroa in Rules Round 29 to establish a Rotax Masters class, and the subsequent discussion at the National Conference, the Executive wishes to announce the following:
In all senior classes contested at NZ Sprint, NZ SuperKart and Island Sprint events, providing there is a minimum of six competitors entered as a Master (40+ years) in the class, the first Master will be recognised as the respective Masters Champion (eg NZ Sprint Masters Champion Rotax Max Heavy) for that class. It is hoped that this will incentivise the 199 currently Licenced Masters aged competitors to take up the challenge to become a National and/or Island Champion.
Detailed rules, effective 1-1-15, will follow in a future Rule Update as normal.
We are working towards making Rotax Masters a stand alone class, so come on you green plate kids...haul that kart out of the back of the garage, dust it off, and get on the track...we wanna see you on the podium next year...1st up...NZ Nationals at Manawatu!
Get outta th way you young ones...Masters comin' thru!

Those that are 40+ and wish to be recognised as a master - we recommend you use the green number plates and remember to state you are a Master at the registration desk. This year our club will recognise the Masters with certificates and trophies at all meetings plus points series and club champs. There should be some great battles out there - get amongst the action!
