Superkarts at the CAMS Motorsport Expo

The QSC Inc attended the CAMS Motorsport Expo on Sunday at the Norwell Performance Driving Centre. The QSC Inc were kept busy with plenty of people stopping by admiring the superkarts on show. We had plenty of interest from current KA racers as well as families looking to get their teenagers into motorsport. The #89 Weier Family Racing kart was popular with kids young and old with quite a few sampling what it feels like to sit in a superkart.

Formula Junior Superkart (Formula JSK)

After trialling at a test day with juniors in 2017, the QSC Inc has held early discussions with Qld Raceways and now with Racers Insurance, the underwriters for QR. All stake holders agree that large format motorsport needs a junior support group with pathways to open competition. All stakeholders agree that the QSC Inc Inc is best placed to offer this pathway through Formula JSK. There is still some way to go and there are still many hurdles to mitigate but we all feel confident that this can be accomplished by structuring a strategic plan for the QSC Inc.
