Kidz Kartz is back!

After missing last year because of Covid restrictions this week will see two Kidz Kartz races in Canterbury.

Firstly there will be the Templeton Medical Cup Prelude at Riccarton Park on Wednesday (Nov 9) and then the Westview Racing-Enterprise Recruitment Kidz Kartz NZ Trotting Cup at Addington on Show Day (Friday), November 11.

Friday's Cup is run alongside a stellar programme that includes the $300,000 Group 1 Dominion Trot, and the $200,000 Group 1 NZ Pacing Free-For-All.

Ranging in age from 12 to 16, this year will feature nine young drivers from as far afield as Auckland - and there are some famous racing names in there too.
