|The forward thinking State moves to Governance.........
The Queensland Karting Association has adopted a new
This is the most progressive step
that any Karting Association has taken, and is as a result of collated information, proper
advisory details, consultation and research over the last 15 months with its member clubs.
At the Annual General Meeting of 2005 (after being tabled at the AGM of 2004) this
document was again placed for the member Clubs of Queensland to consider, and has
culminated in a resounding adoption to Governance and best Management practices, and
brings Qld into line with the Australian Sports Institute model and Government models of
The acceptance by the State clubs of Qld and their input and that of other knowledgable
persons clearly shows that the National organization is way out of step with its own
administration in that a similar model has been floundering at National level for 2
years and has spent some $60,000 of karters National Funds without any benefit to date.
Queenslands efforts cost the karters of Qld zero
Interference of the ASN (CAMS) in karting administration is in our opinion not doing what
is best for karting but appears to be doing only what is best for the CAMS' standing with
the FIA following their undertaking to FIA at the FIA Plenery Conference in Paris in 2004
that they would "sort" out karting .

It is simply mysterious that a hastily called CAMS "pivotal" meeting, with
selective non transferable "invitations" and without advertised agenda was
called by CAMS President Mr. Colin Osborne in Melbourne on the same day as the Qld
Association Annual General Meeting, such a CAMS "pivotal" meeting must have had
prior AKA National Exec input and knowledge , and information unknown to its AKA
members, anyway more of that possible treachery later !
What needs to be applauded is the move by Queensland to adopt the Australian Sports
Commission Governance Model - a simple and effective operation that in due course, as
directed by its Council will bring Governance to Qld karters well in advance of the
National body without any fuss and with minute costs..........
....onward and forward ....how simple and cost effective !! and with simplicity and above
all, without any treachery ........ !!!
