“The KartSport New Zealand Executive and Management regret to inform you that the Armstrong Motor Group 2020 National
Sprint Championships meeting planned to be held at KartSport Canterbury’s Carrs Rd Raceway, Halswell, Christchurch over
the Easter long weekend (April 10-13 2020) have been postponed. A new date will be advised at a later stage dependent on
an improvement in the COVID-19 virus situation.
“Planning for hosting the National Sprint Championships and other events in these extraordinary times has been a top
priority of the leadership team over recent weeks and continues to be our number one priority. Rest assured it is with
sincere regret that we have to make this decision.
“Apart from the need to comply with government decrees, the KartSport National Sprint Championships are a place where
competitors and teams compete for and defend the ultimate titles in New Zealand karting. To add a significant additional
set of rules for our volunteers to administer AND restrict team and entry numbers is not an option for those
competitors, officials, crew, family and friends who cherish this four-day plus celebration that hosts 500 attendees per
day plus spectators.
“Refund process and/or deferment options to be advised shortly. Please be patient as we work through this in conjunction
with KartSport Canterbury.
“Further updates will be posted on our Health & Safety page:
