30 YEARS OF IKD.

The beginning

Ian Black started International Karting Distributors (formerly known as Blacktown Kart Centre) in 1990 after he quit his job at a bank to turn his real passion for racing into his career. At just twenty years of age, the dedication and commitment to owning and operating a successful kart shop was in full swing. David, Ian’s father cleared out some space in his factory where he ran his auto-electrical business, allowing Ian to not just sell karts but work on them and service his increasing customer base.

Soon after, the growth of the business meant more space was required and after a few years, what is now known as IKD landed itself in Penrith, at the foot of the Blue Mountains in a 2000sqm factory to cater for the increasing number of brands Ian was now importing and distributing Australia wide. 

   Starting in 1990 as Blacktown Kart Centre, 
   IKD has grown into the largest distributor 
of
   karting and motor racing products in Australia.



Racing DNA

IKD has racing deep in its DNA starting out with Ian’s father David to Ian to now his son Jack between them winning Club, State and Australian championships, Feature Race wins on the dirt track to testing there skills on the world stage racing in the USA and Europe. 

Jack, a third-generation racer in the Black family is ‘learning the ropes’ of the family business to follow in his father’s footsteps.
