How to find your way through motorsport when there are so many different roads to travel.

 

Karting is where most motorsport starts at a young age and now there is a new pathway for the sports juniors to fast track their ambitions onto the real racing circuits.

If you have a Rotax Jmax and want a chance to win a prize from the Erebus Academy then have a look at Superkarting.

Superkarting races at all the race tracks that the higher formulas run around at and does it for a fraction of the cost. Circuits like Phillip Island, Winton, Sydney Motorsport Park, Mallala, Lakeside and many more have held Superkart races at a National level.

 

Superkarting offers a junior class of racing from the age of 12.

 

Many of the sports best have come up through the ranks of Superkarting, yet it is still a well-kept secret. Nick Percat was a Junior Superkarter long before he got a drive in Supercars and managed to win at Bathurst.

Darren Hossack is a multiple Sports Sedan and Superkart Australian Champion.

 

Erebus Motorsport have put together the Erebus Academy to help young drivers find their way along the motorsport pathways to the future careers they desire.

Now in 2021, the Erebus Academy is partnering with and sponsoring the 2021 Victorian Junior Superkart Championship.

A Championship that will be run over FOUR rounds for juniors aged between 12 -15. This will be run with Jmax engines that don’t have to be the latest engines available and also karts that don’t need to be brand new.

This is a championship for the drivers with all the emphasis on driving and not on the money and equipment.

 

Drivers will be given one set of tyres supplied by Dunlop kartsport which will remain with the organisers between rounds and need to last the four rounds. They will be only given three sprockets to choose from at each round. Racing will be at the Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit and the Road circuit at the State Motorcycle centre, Broadford.

 

The prize for winning this years Championship will be two full sessions in the Erebus state-of-the-art driving simulator with one of their engineers to help and train you on how to use it and how to download your data.

It will also include a personal tour of their race team workshop for 2 people so drivers can see what goes on in the higher levels of Australian motorsport.

As well as that they will also take someone for a “hot lap” in their current race car so they can fully experience what they may have learned.

Time to try something different, come and race Superkarts.

 

Date for this Championship will be advised

Here are some of the viewer comments:

Wow those things are fast...Great footage man...Love those dual carbs. 

Great footage, You guys are hardcore racers. All respect to you. I think Superkarts are the heaviest form of racing. Even more so then F1's. 

Bass rocks!!
It's scary just watching it - great footage.
Yep those carbies add to the effect.
Keep up the good work guys
