According to Kumho national marketing and training manager, David Basha, the Australian Schools Karting Championship is a great concept which will encourage motorsport participation.

"Kumho is pleased to partner Australian Schools Karting Championship as it brings the thrills, craft and discipline of  motor racing to a new young audience," said David Basha.

Kumho's motor sport involvement in Australia is anchored in the principles of young driver development.

Formula 3's Kumho Cup as well as the Australian Rally Championship's Kumho Spirit of Rally award and Kumho Australian Junior Rally Challenge have been specifically designed to encourage rising talent in the sport.

"Kumho understands the importance of fostering the next generation of Australian motor sport participants and supporting the Australian Schools Karting Championship is a great way of supporting future drivers," said David.

The Kumho ASKC will see students in teams of three compete against other schools in a three round series designed to find Australia's fastest learners.

More than 60 students from 17 schools across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory have signed up to take part in the competition.
