2012 Australian Leopard Series

Remo Racing is proud to announce that the Leopard Class will be on tour with the 2012 CIK Stars of Karting Series.


The Leopard Class is open to ALL IAME X30 or RL 125cc engine owners, whether you’re an amateur or professional driver.


The 5 rounds will be contested at Newcastle, Bolivar, Ipswich, Melbourne and Eastern Creek. There will be prizes won at EVERY
ROUND so grab your IAME engine and enter a round nearest you.


LEOPARD CLASS: Rules per AKA manual WEIGHTS:

160kg Light and 180kg Heavy

 

TYRES: Contracted MG FZ Yellows Rules per AKA manual.

 

ENTRIES: Register on Stars of Karting Series website: http://booths.speedcafe.com.au/stars-of-karting/sok-registrations/


The atmosphere at the CIK Stars of Karting events is absolutely amazing! Rub shoulders with Australia's elite drivers and see what its
like to be amongst the professional side of karting. If you are unable to follow all the rounds of the Series you can still WIN PRIZES by
entering one of the rounds below in your State.


RACE FORMAT:
The LEOPARD CATEGORY will see both Light and Heavy competitors line-up in the same field. Which means that
there will be two weight divisions but run on the track at the same time in the same field. So all drivers will grid up based on their
qualifying time - regardless of what class they are in, and the first Light and first Heavy driver across the line will win their respective
categories. The rules are as per AKA rule book, so are simple.

 

Round 1 - February 25/26 - Bolivar, South Australia
Round 2 - April 21/22 - Newcastle, New South Wales
Round 3 - June 16/17 - Ipswich, Queensland
Round 4 - July 28/29 - Eastern Creek, New South Wales
Round 5 - September 22/23 - Port Melbourne, Victoria

 

Leopard Class has produced MANY champions who have moved up to CIK racing. If you see last years’ entries in the CIK Series you will find that HALF of the competitors in KF1 and HALF of the competitors in KZ2 came from LEOPARD Class.


Below is a list of drivers from last years CIK Stars of Karting Series who competed in KF1 (Pro-light) and KZ2 classes and all came from LEOPARD Class Jake Spencer, Cian Fothergill, Grant Smith, Adam Hughes, George Geranis, Jason Hryniuk, Ben Edwards, Matthew Erdmann, Elle Brydon, Cameron Macqueen, Damien Radosevic, Shay Mayes, Tyler Greenbury, Matthew Hayes, Kel Treseder, Jason Pringle, Matthew Wall, Scott Taylor, Kyle Ensbey, John Grother, Lee Mitchener and Jordie Lindstrom.


So here is proof that Leopard competitors can gain a wealth of experience and develop their racing skills in the Leopard class. Leopard class competitors are our future champions. The IAME X30 engine is still the exact same engine as used world-wide. The other great benefit of owning an X30 engine and racing in Leopard Class is that there are NO RULE CHANGES. The X30 engine was built by leading engine manufacturer IAME in 2004 and there have been NO parts changed since its inception in Australia in 2009, and we have kept our promises. It is a true OUT OF THE BOX racing engine with low running costs with “NO BLUEPRINTING REQUIRED" nor possible due to the design of the major components.


PRIZES


LIGHT WINNER The Leopard light winner of the 5 round series will secure a new IAME KF ENGINE for use in the 2013 CIK Stars of
Karting Series.


HEAVY WINNER The Leopard heavy winner of the 5 round series will win either a NEW X30 ENGINE to keep or the equivalent value
towards KF1 classes at the 2013 CIK Stars of Karting Series (winners choice).


FIRST LOCAL HOME There will also be a prize awarded at EACH ROUND to the first local home for both Leopard Light and Heavy
classes. (A local is a competitor from that State example: SA, Vic, NSW etc;)


Also, all Leopard Light and Heavy drivers who compete in this series (minimum any 3 rounds) will automatically qualify to compete for
prizes at the Australian Leopard Final and automatically qualify for a spot in the 2012 IAME International World Final in France.


The ULTIMATE GOAL of this series being at such a prestigious event is to not only provide Leopard competitors invaluable experience
competing in a low cost 125cc class with an amazing atmosphere but also the opportunity to ultimately MOVE UP into CIK racing.
We are very excited and also most grateful to the committee on being given this opportunity for the Leopard competitors in Australia to
be able to race at the most prestigious event in Australia as the CIK Stars of Karting Series, and we thank you.
