Grey number plates will be awarded to the winners of the 2018 Australian Kart Masters – rather fitting (or insulting?) considering it’s an event specifically for drivers 40 years plus!
Formerly known at the Coffs Harbour Over 40s Titles, the event has been re-branded and is a KA National Cup level race meeting. It will include a shootout competition, vintage demonstrations and feature class status for the category with the most entries.
