The growth in Competition Licences, which was evident in early 2020 prior to COVID-19, has accelerated as we have moved into 2021. While the 3 month free Licence extension has depressed reported numbers over the last 6 months, the latest May 2021 statistics are beginning to tell the real story.
Competition Licences are up 11% on the same month in 2018 to 922, to be the highest since November 2012 (935). In addition current Vintage (108) and Practice Licences (164) remain strong.
A big shout out to all the Clubs that have been building their membership through Have A Go days, adding new class options and running great events. Outstanding (over 20%) three year growth in total Licenced Members is demonstrated as follows:
KartSport Marlborough up 140%
KartSport Auckland up 95%
KartSport Hamilton up 85%
KartSport Manawatu up 53%
Vintage Karting NZ up 43%
KartSport Wellington up 35%
KartSport SuperKart Drivers up 26%
