The Jinba Ittai Karting Challenge will be hotly contested again to determine which Chapter will take home the trophy for 2017. It's the  RPM Chapter's turn to host the final round of the Challenge this year, and we're returning to the venue that was used in 2015 at Luddenham. Tired of seeing other Chapters win this converted prize? Come and watch RPM as it hopes to win its first title in the events history.

*** You must be a member of the MX-5 Club of NSW to enter this event ***


Individual Chapters will hold their own qualifying rounds with 3 male and 3 female members being chosen to represent their chapter at the finale which will be held on 1st October 2017 at Luddenham Raceway.

Chapter cheer squads are always welcome and encouraged to attend to support their respective Chapter contenders. BYO pom-poms!

Stick around for lunch afterwards at Walacha Hotel, Mulgoa Rd Mulgoa - only five minutes down the road.

All chapter convenors must confirm attendance of representatives in advance to Graham Fletcher at fletcgj@westnet.com.au

 Please ensure that you are at the track at least 30-45 minutes prior to the start to sort out forms and payment
