Not All Bikes

adelaideblackhorsekart2014small It is not all motorcycles at the up and coming Adelaide Blackhorse Motorcycle Festival at the King’s Hall Pavilion on the 7th February – 8th February – 9th February 2014.

Adding to the festival of motorcycles are the North of Ireland Karting Association (NIKA) who have announced that they will have a stand at the festival.

NIKA Chairman Richard Dewart says, “We will have Karts on show from the 8 year old starter class up to the 140 MPH Superkart Class with many in between, we will have Charlie Eastwoods 2013 European Championship Winning Kart on show and will be promoting our NI Kart Experience Day on the 15th February at the show, you can sign up to come along to a race circuit and actually experience the thrill of driving a fully prepared Kart on a full race circuit.

We will also have staff on the stand to direct and answer questions with regards anyone wanting to get into either the sport of karting or just to find out where and when we race.

Please come along as we will be more than happy to see you and show you around the exceptional Equipment we will have on Show and introduce you to Karting at its best!”

The aim of the NI Kart Experience scheme is to introduce new drivers into karting. Using race prepared machinery, potential newcomers to karting get a taste for the full thrill of karting and hopefully we will find the next generation of champions.

Locally the main focus for the drivers attention will be the NI Championship, which kicks off on 1st March at Kirkistown and concludes at Bishopscourt in September. In between, the drivers will also face the challenge of Nutts Corner and the NW200 Paddock.

Undoubtedly the highlight of the year will be the Superkart UK Cup and British Superkart Championships at Bishopscourt on the 31st May. On their last visit to these shores, in 2012, the Division 1 Superkarts smashed Jonathan Rea’s outright lap record by over 1.5secs and with a grid packed with European, British and Irish champions, that record could be lowered even further.
