KART RACING

Whether your child is nearing the day when they are old enough to qualify for a LEARNERS permit or even as young as 6, karting is a sport where they can gain confidence, learn racecraft and develop their driving skills.

Kart racing gives them years of supervised motoring experience well before they are old enough to qualify for a ROAD LICENCE!

On may 19th and 20th, the Wimmera Kart Racing Club hosted Round 3 of the 2018 Victorian Country Series. This event is held annually and shared amongst 6 clubs. Our event attracted 217 competitors from as far as Melbourne to SA. For all the news on the event, please visit our facebook page.

LETTER:

Hi,
I just wanted to say thank
you to the club for putting on a fantastic Round 3 VCS event over the weekend.

At first I was a bit dubious of coming because as a bit of a track snob I asked myself what could a 24 second track offer as an entertainment for the racers and spectators? Well how wrong was I!!

I thought Wimmera was an excellent track in both racing and for the spectator. The racing was so good to watch and it just worked. Could it have been better well 'maybe a few more laps' each race yes but very very happy with the whole setup and running. Weigh area could be rearranged but I suppose you already know that.

In summary I thought everything about your club deserved a mention from the moment I made contact in entering the race online to the moment I left on Sunday.

The clubs administration, communication and promotion of the event was excellent and your pit space allocation handling was excellent.

When I arrived at the track, your pits were probably the best I have seen in cleanliness, comfort and layout. The pit Marshall Paul did a great job in allocating the spot for us when we arrived at the circuit and we couldn't be happier with our spot.

Your canteen was excellent, could of been better with bacon and egg rolls on Saturday as well but I am happy to wait until Sunday. It made it all the more special ??

Assistance from club members was friendly and easy to work with, right up to the moment when we were leaving when a gentlemen ran up to help with the trailer even though we didn't need it. It was just nice to have someone looking out. He even moved the bin as we were leaving to make it just that little bit easier to navigate out. That's awesome hospitality.

So I would like to say, 'Wimmera Kart Club' you absolutely knocked that one for six. Your club did a great job and we look forward to coming back one day.

Kind regards, Joe and Max Torcasio -

KARTING... your going to love it! 

Karting is one of the most fun, exhilarating, cost effective and professionally run forms of motorsport in Australia. It is the perfect sport for families to come together at weekends and participate in an exciting, social, healthy and rewarding activity, and gives them the opportunity to become apart of and make friends with a large friendly community of like minded people who share a similar passion for motor sport and who are more than happy to assist new people into the sport.

Karting provides the opportunity for people of all backgrounds and age groups to participate in a sport that provides a thrilling and enjoyable sense of speed being so close to the ground and racing wheel to wheel with other drivers. 

The sport of karting is an adrenaline rush quite like no other sport can provide.

In Victoria there are over 18 Karting Australia affiliated kart clubs with a racing meeting happening almost every weekend at a kart club around the state.

Types of karting events that are held include Club Day racing which is held on the last Sunday of every month at most Victorian kart clubs. There are Open Meetings, Series Meetings, State Championship and National Championship series events.
