Sharing the knowledge

Tuesday 21 May, 2024
Karting Australia officials visited the recent Supercars event at Raceway to learn from Motorsport Australia officials.
The strong relationship between Karting Australia and Motorsport Australia continues, with a unique development opportunity provided at the recent Repco Supercars Championship event.
Ahead of National Volunteer Week, officials from across both karting and four-wheel motorsport came together in Western Australia for a special knowledge sharing initiative.
Karting Australia officials were at the Bosch Power Tools Perth SuperSprint on both Saturday and Sunday for the Repco Supercars Championship round with the opportunity to learn from and share their experience with senior Motorsport Australia officials, as well as local officials delivering the Supercars round at Raceway.

WA-based Karting Australia officials were given the opportunity to see Motorsport Australia Race Control in action during the weekend, as well as working with other key officials across the event to further exchange ideas and innovations.

Supercars Race Director James Taylor spent time with the officials throughout the weekend, as did many of Motorsport Australia’s appointed and volunteer officials, sharing key knowledge to benefit both disciplines.
“Karting Australia has some great officials working across all of their events, as Motorsport Australia does at every event, so we are keen to share that knowledge across our disciplines for everyone’s benefit,” Taylor explained.

“The opportunity to share our knowledge with Karting Australia is certainly beneficial to both our disciplines. For this weekend, a Supercars event provides a great platform for us to welcome Karting Australia officials into our Race Control and other key areas of the event to get an understanding of our processes and judicial set up.”
