Australian Superkart Championship[edit]

The 2009 Australian Superkart Championship was the 21st running of the national championships for Superkarts. It began on 6 June 2009 at Mallala Motor Sport Park and end on 19 July at Eastern Creek Raceway after eight races. It was contested for two engine capacity based classes, 250 cc International (incorporating 250 National Class) and 125 cc. 125cc champion was Melbourne teenager, Steven Tamasi.[3]

A third national level event was held later in the season at Morgan Park Raceway which was held for the 250 International, 125cc, the recently superseded 85cc class and the Rotax Max non-gearbox category.

Non-Gearbox Superkart Championship[edit]

With insufficient pre-registration, non-Gearbox Rotax Max championship was not contested in 2009.

Teams and drivers[edit]

The following drivers competed in the 2009 Australian Superkart Championship. The series consisted of two rounds, with four races at each meeting. With only four competitors appearing from the 250 National class all season, the 250 Nationals were merged into the 250 International class.
