ALL AIDKA EVENTS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY (Friday 19th March 2020)  Due to today’s Government announcement of further restrictions to mass gatherings, all AIDKA events have been cancelled effective immediately (Friday 20th March 2020 until 18th May 2020). At the AIDKA Executive meeting on 15th May, we will reassess the Covid-19 Virus situation and update clubs moving forward. We have had contact from our Insurance company who suggested that if any club was found to be non-compliant with Government regulations, that no Public Liability coverage will apply. There are also heavy monetary penalties for clubs and the Association if compliance has been breached. This is something the Executive is not prepared in putting the Association at risk. We apologise for the late notice to Morgan and Jennacubbine clubs who have already put in much preparation for tomorrow’s...

AIDKA CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE for members

AIDKA CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE 19th March 2020 The AIDKA Executive committee has been monitoring the rapidly changing Covid-19 Virus situation throughout Australia. Our decisions are based on what is the best interest and health of our members, officials, volunteers and supporters. As you would have seen throughout the media streams, the Covid-19 Virus situation is changing daily. We have assessed all documents and media releases from State/Federal Governments and Health authorities. The below decisions have not been made lightly and please consider that the current state and restrictions could change at any time. BLANCHETOWN SA TITLES 2020 The AIDKA Executive have had discussions with Blanchetown Kart Club and both have agreed that the 2020 SA titles will be cancelled. The 2021 SA State Titles will be now held at the Blanchetown Kart Club on 30th April, 1st and 2nd May 2021 which means the roster for SA Titles will all be moved back one year. This is not a normal situation of ‘Force Majeure’ but feel this is the best outcome for all. This will hopefully allow most accommodation bookings to be transferred from 2020 to 2021. Cancelling now is our best option to minimise expenditure for all and eliminate the risk of cancellation if authorities change protocol and guidelines anytime moving forward, which could be just days before the event. Full refunds for current SA Title nominations will occur but please be patient. CLUB EVENTS Club events may continue until further notice but please be aware this could change at a moments notice. If Government and Health authorities place any further restrictions on mass gatherings, we will cancel all meetings effective immediately. Some clubs may opt to not race from now and this is entirely their decision. The following restrictions/protocols must be followed at all club events. Maximum nominations will be 125. If you are feeling unwell STAY AT HOME. If you personally are in a high-risk category STAY AT HOME. If you have travelled overseas in last 14 days STAY AT HOME and self-isolate. Personal Hygiene is a must. All participants to be vigilant and wash hands regularly with soap and/or use hand sanitiser (please bring your own if possible). Keep...

SEC barrel clarification

If you are going to use a SEC barrel on a KTS, it must be machined to the same specs as the SD barrel for the fitting of the Exhaust Gasket and Head Gasket. No other SEC components are eligible to be used. 12th Dec 2019

Alternative X30 Upgrade components – Eff Feb 2020

At the 15th November 2019 AIDKA council meeting the Club’s Voted 10:3 to allow the introduction of the alternative X30 components from February 2020 AIDKA conducted both Dyno and Track Testing on these components and presented this information to the council before the clubs made their decision. Testing was conducted by two drivers at two different tracks.  Similar findings were found by both drivers.  The first test was performed in race conditions while the second test was a one on one test, new vs old components. TEST RESULTS  The results can be summarized as follows: Tillotson HW-27A carby with larger reed block (29mm instead of 28mm) felt strong but in comparison to the old Tryton carby, lacked bottom end power. The New Style Pipe gave us the reverse result with increased bottom end power out of the tight corners of the track.  Without changing anything like gearing, it still maintained similar mid-range and bottom end power compared to the old pipe. The PVL ignition provided no difference in performance. When both the Tillotson HW-27A carby and New style muffler were used together there was negligible difference between the new pipe/carby and the old pipe carby combination.   For this reason, it was proposed that either new or old pipe/carby combinations could be used, but not a combination of the two. Dyno testing did show an increase in power in the lower power range but it has not shown on the track.  This may be put down to dirt karts not using the lower end power range as offer as bitumen karts do.   THE NEW RULE FOR 2020  The clubs voted to allow the following: Either combinations of the following carby & pipe Tryton Carby & 2017 Header pipe/ Exhaust combination or Tillotson HW-27A carby & one-piece exhaust Either ignition can be used with each carby/pipe combination The use of the new wider radiator is also allowed to be used with any of the AIDKA approved engines   WHY THE CHANGE?  This change was due to IAME changing the components available on new engines.   Karting Australia introduced the carby and pipe at the beginning of 2018 and the ignition at the start of 2019.   IAME...
