KTA Withdrawal of Townsville EventJune 1, 2012
To whom it may concern:
Press Release Withdraw of KTA (Kitetour Asia)
Withdraw KTA Australia
After losing our naming sponsor for the KTA Australia event the KTA withdrew their sanctioning of the event due to financial limitations. We are extremely regretful of these circumstances!
We have tried everything possible to keep the KTA event as part of the 2012 Australian National Race and Freestyle Titles next long weekend from 7-11 June in Townsville, Queensland, but were unsuccessful in securing another sponsor to pay for KTA Team admin costs, sanction fees, KTA travel , accommodation costs that were not negotiable with the KTA. We tried to find a solution with the KTA which was unsuccessful.
The 2012 Australian National Titles will go ahead as planned.
All international riders will still be able to participate in the Racing and Freeride events, when registering for the event.
Price money is still being offered for the competitions.
