Karting (New South Wales) Inc this evening released its 2020 Annual Report. In the Message from the Chair, Ms Ilona Alsters stated:-
“It has certainly been an extraordinary year, not only in karting, but for humankind”.
In her report to the Member Clubs, Ms Alsters confirmed that “despite all racing ceasing during the months of April and May 2020, KNSW delivered a surplus of $3,065 which is a $191,476 turnaround from 2019.”
Looking forward, she also noted that “the 2020/21 year looks exceptionally promising, with licence numbers and participation already well above last years numbers”.
On a personal note, she stated that “I have thoroughly enjoyed attending many karting events throughout 2020, seeing the hard work of our Clubs and Members first hand. In addition, I would like to thank my fellow directors, for their advice and support and whom have given immensely and freely of their time to help re-build the foundations of our sport”.
She also expressed her gratitude to all KNSW members, officials and volunteers, particularly this year. “We all worked together as a karting community, volunteering during a pandemic. We all placed the safety and wellbeing of fellow karters as our number one priority, all whilst navigating through the ongoing viability of our clubs, businesses and karting families. Congratulations – your hard work and tenacity has certainly paid off!”
At tonight’s Annual General Meeting, Ms Alsters was re-appointed as Chair by the Member Clubs of KNSW. In addition, fellow directors Ben Aylen, Shane Glanville, Nick Becker and Craig Sargent were also re-elected. The members also approved an amended Constitution for the organisation.
