TRANS-WEST CONTINUES ITS SUPPORT OF CIK STARS OF KARTING SERIES

Trans-West Insurance Brokers will continue its support of karting in Australia by partnering with the CIK Stars of Karting Series in 2010.

As an Australian owned and licensed Insurance Broker Trans-West Insurance Brokers have been offering insurance and risk management services to commercial and industrial organisations since 1979.

The partnership with the CIK Stars of Karting Series is a continuation of the support shown by Managing Director Sam Sofi and his team to not only karting but Australian motorsport as a whole.

"At Trans-West we are proud to once again be associated with the elite level of karting in Australia," said Sofi.

"I've always been a firm believer in the fact that if we can have an elite level in the sport it encourages more people to get involved in karting at all levels which can only be a good thing for everyone.

"I've been involved in karting for over two decades now, at both a personal and corporate level, and I'm proud to be associated in a sport that encourages strong family values while providing people with an opportunity to develop their skills."

Trans-West Insurance Brokers have specific products for motorsport competitors to protect their assets including a karting, transporter or motorsport package along with various office and business packages.

The CIK Stars of Karting Series will kick off in Newcastle on March 5-7 and will incorporate the Australian CIK Championships for the Pro Light (KF1), Pro Gearbox (KZ2) and Pro Junior (KF3) categories.

Competitors in the Pro Light category will use the 125cc IAME KF specification engine, as used in the 2009 championship that was won by Newcastle driver Hayden McBride. The Pro Gearbox drivers will take to the track powered by a six-speed 125cc gearbox machine while the Pro Junior drivers will use a 125cc Vortex KF3 specification engine.

Driver's looking to register their interest in the series should visit www.starsofkarting.com.au.

Supplementary regulations for the opening round are available under the rules section on the series website, www.starsofkarting.com.au and the official site of the AKA www.karting.net.au

Running in conjunction with the series will also be a Clubman and Junior National category, where competitors will be vying for the East Coast Title, along with one class chosen by the host club. The winner of the Clubman class across the four rounds will also receive a trip to the All Japan Kart Championships later in the year courtesy of the Yamaha Motor Company.
