DPE Kart Technology was established in 1973 by eight-time Australian karting champion and Australian Motorsport Hall of Fame Inductee, Drew Price, and has been manufacturing and distributing quality karting products ever since. DPE has always been more than just a business, with Drew's passion for karting running deep, as is evident when he stated, "My career in karting is something that I’m proud of, but I think more importantly I’m very proud of the role that I’ve played with my business in the sport to help the growth and development of karting. Karting has provided an enormous talent pool for the world of motorsport."
In a karting career that spanned two decades, Drew Price claimed six Australian Titles between 1972 and 1984. After winning his first Championship, he started Drew Price Engineering (DPE) during 1973 in his father’s shed to manufacturer his own karts. Over the past 45+ years the business has gone on to become one of Australia’s largest karting businesses, with Drew ultimately handing over the reins of the business to his son, Bart, who is a a six-time Australian Karting Champion himself.
