Stars of Karting Series announces 2013 dates
With two rounds still to run in the 2012 championship, organisers of Australia’s elite karting series, the Castrol EDGE CIK Stars of Karting Series, have confirmed dates for the 2013 series today.
While keeping a similar date format to what has been successful over the past two years, the 2013 edition of the five-round series will see the elite form of karting return to two venues that have played a significant role in the sport’s history in Victoria and New South Wales.
The first of five rounds will explode into action at the Ipswich Kart Track in Queensland on February 22/23. Round two will see the series return to one of the spiritual homes of Australian CIK racing at the Lithgow circuit with a round to be hosted by the Sydney Kart Racing Club on April 27/28.
This will then be followed by the Geelong Kart Club hosting its first round of the championship since it was rejuvenated three years ago with June 14/15 slated on the schedule for the Victorian venue.
Just as has been the case in 2012, the North Shore Kart Club will then host the penultimate round at Sydney’s Eastern Creek International Karting Raceway on the final weekend in July (26/27). This will again be followed by the Grand Finale at Victoria’s Port Melbourne circuit at the home of the Go-Kart Club of Victoria on September 21/22.
Meanwhile, the 2012 Championship will continue next weekend (July 28/29) at Sydney’s Eastern Creek International Karting Raceway ahead of the final round at Port Melbourne on September 22/23 – the weekend following the Sandown 500 in Melbourne.
