The Endurance Karting Association or TEKA runs endurance kart races which provided the maximum bang for your buck over a race weekend. Unlike sprint karting, where races are usually only 10 or 15 laps, endurance events are usually for a minimum of 4 hours and can be as long as 24 hours - continuous racing! Pit stops, driver changes, refuelling stops, race strategy and kart preparation all combine to offer a challenging and exciting "real racing" environment at a cost which is comparatively affordable. The karts are powered by two 8.5hp Briggs & Stratton motors and can achieve speeds in excess of 100 kph. The racing is competitive and close with teams often separated by seconds or minutes at the end of a 6 hour race.
 



 

What is TEKA?

The Endurance Karting Association Inc (TEKA) was established by a group of competitors in 2000 with the aim to promote the sport and provide structured, safe and affordable racing. There are currently over 250 financial members and the association is run by a committee of team owners and drivers. TEKA as a registered club operates under the legal framework of our constitution which is available here.
 


TEKA holds appropriate Public Liability Insurance (approved by the Department of Sport and Recreation), hires circuits for events, utilises a qualified Clerk-of-the-Course, utilises a state-of-the-art electronic timing system, supplies fuel and co-ordinates accommodation for competitors. The association also issues an annual Rules and Regulation Book and appoints approved engine scrutineers. This website, is maintained by the association and is the primary communication tool for members.
 


Who are the competitors?

The competitors range from family teams with father and son combinations, to teams of friends to company sponsored teams. Competitors are drawn from all walks of life and age from 16 years to 60+ years. The nature of endurance karting appears to attract a greater percentage of "mature age" competitors.


Not 16 yet?

TEKA accommodates all our up-and-coming racers by providing a designated time for junior practice. These sessions occur at almost every round and give the young drivers a chance to get the hang of karting before competing.
