Power Republic

Tony Kart Australia would like to welcome the Power Republic team to it's growing dealer network.

Having an interest in go-kart racing is only the beginning. Derek Jones of Power Republic has a passion for motor sport like no other.

Heavily influenced throughout childhood from a family involved in racing, whether it be Group A Touring Cars, Speedway, Go-Karts or Rally Cars, motorsport was always at the core.

When Go-Karts became his chosen sport in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Greg Smith of Baron Engine Developments did more than just develop his engines, he developed his passion.

As a high school student, Derek's first work experience was with Baron Engines in 1993 and Greg introduced him to Reed and Rotary 100cc race engines, at Geelong, a year later. 

Greg mentored Derek through his apprenticeship in one of Melbourne's largest tool-rooms and has provided endless support through the creation of Derek's 2-stroke engineering business, Power Republic, based on the Gold Coast, Queensland.

"We are pleased to announce that Power Republic, will be joining forces once again with Baron Engine Developments, to become part of the Tony Kart Dealer Network."
