See you all trackside....

Having belief in your own ideas and tenaciously pursuing your ambitions:  This is the philosophy which has taken Vortex to such great successes.  From its inauguration, Vortex has delivered the performance required in order to compete at the highest level and taste the success which comes hand in hand with victory.  Since then the brand has grown, and now offers a premium range of karts racing engines.

Vortex forged its reputation within the motorsport arena as a workshop for the preparation of race engines.  During the 1990’s Vortex expanded its capabilities, and became a factory which was able to design, and manufacture engines which were capable of driving to race victories.

 

Call Maurice or Kane on (06) 758 8891 to arrange your new Vortex engine or parts for your existing engine. They are the experts you can count on!

The next working bee to be held at the track will be advised as soon as possible.  Thanks to all those who turned up for the last working bee, the track was in great shape for Club Champs. Any questions, telephone Maurice Frost on 7588891 or Robert Boniface (027) 592 4210.
