The series has its origins in what was known as the Subaru F4 Series at Picton Karting Track. These were mainly four hour endurance events at Picton once a month on a Saturday night under lights.

In early 2014 The Subaru Karting Association of NSW Inc. was formed.

The club ran its first race meeting at Port Macquarie Kart Track in very wet conditions.

It is incredible that more than a decade on, so many teams and drivers that were in attendance that day are still involved with the club.

By 2015 the club embarked on running a full calendar of racing events and had attracted the attention of Karting New South Wales. The club affiliated with Karting New South Wales and the Subaru KX21 motor became eligible for racing nation-wide.

The impending closure of Fuji Heavy Industries in Japan, the manufacturers of the Subaru KX21 engine meant our Subaru power plant suddenly had an expiry date.

In response to this in early 2018, the club voted on a name change to the:

Four Stroke Karting Association of New South Wales Inc.

From 2019 our engine of choice became the: Briggs and Stratton LO206.

The Briggs & Stratton Engine has been an absolute winner for the club. The rev limiter means the engine looks after itself, the engines are even, and the racing close.

The club now boasts professional equipment levels, Race America Track Safety Lights, Portable Weigh Bridge, Fuel Bay, Pit Lane Timing, and a large Club Trailer.

Our club has installed and funded permanent timing loops at Canberra, Dubbo, Manning Valley, Lithgow, Wagga, & Orange so that timed pit stops run without a hitch.

We have now invested thousands of dollars over the years to improve the racing experience and continue to do so.

The clubs vision has always remained the same:

  • We are a social club that goes racing
  • We use a control sealed Briggs & Stratton LO206 tagged motor that can be fitted to most karting chassis, the engine is sealed so you cannot alter it meaning everyone is on a level playing field.
  • We always attempt to run our events professionally and in accordance with the rule book.
  • We are non-for profit, meaning all money made goes into equipment for the club or promotion of our racing.
  • We visit the best tracks in the ACT & NSW on an annual basis and run eight rounds of racing a year.
