Aotea Electric Jason Richards Grand Prix

To remember the late Jason Richards Kartsport Nelson are running an Jason Richards Grand Prix for the fifth year, this is a new meeting with a new and unique race format. From the feedback from drivers over the past years, everyone enjoyed the event.

The key elements that we wanted out of this meeting was for it to be different from the traditional 4 heats and a final or the current CIK format. As a club we want to emphasize and encourage the elements of "Fun" and "Strategy" through this novel and unique format.
