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!

TEST & TUNE DAY and CHRISTMAS BREAKUP
2nd December 2018

We hope you enjoyed our September club day as we have another great day planned!

Date ‪2/12/2018‬
Start 10:00am to 4:30pm‬
Event TEST and TUNE
FREE BBQ LUNCH and soft drink for all members and their family

We ask that all members reply with numbers so catering can be arranged, we wouldn’t want to run out of snags!

WORKING BEE 10th-11th NOVEMBER
Working bee to be held on the 10th and 11th of November (track closed these dates). For this working bee, we will be NEEDING as many members as possible to finish the appointed job of putting the Kart tyres around the sweeper.  If we cannot complete this job by the 10th-11th November the track will REMAIN CLOSED from that date until the job is completed to make it safe. This will mean that our Christmas Test and Tune day on the 2nd December will not go ahead.  We encourage all members to attend both days, because if only 2 people turn up there will be no point in starting the job and it MUST be completed before our next race.  Please reply to me by return email or text by the 7th of November of attending members. We will be providing LUNCH on both days. Feel free to also contact to Shane Altmann, Track Maintenance Officer on 0429 909221 or via email shane_alicia@optusnet.com.au

It was good to see the HISTORIC KARTING VICTORIA members turn up and enjoy our facilities. We had some vintage demonstration races which brought the crowd to the fence. It was great to meet up with PETER WARD who was a past AKA president from 1986 to 1996. Peter made the trip to the Wimmera and brang his 4-wheeler bike to help push start the karts. STEVEN WAIT #32 demonstrated his 1996 Monaco GP2 kart fitted with a Mac Minarelli engine. The Monaco Brand Kart as many know was Remo’s own signature kart which he manufactured since the early 90’s.PETE MIDDLETON #70 demonstrated his Excell chassis complete with a KT100S Yamaha engine. The original owner of his kart and engine was none other than our club member Remo Luciani. This brought back a lot of memories for Remo when he raced it in the late ’80s (see pic). The HKV members certainly enjoyed the Wimmera Kart Racing Club facilities and enjoyed the track and we can hopefully get them back for a major event. 

-Geographically, its a central meeting point for SA and Victorian tracks. The Wimmera Kart Racing Club would love to hold a Historic Kart Race Event in the future at our Historic Kart Track which has been here for almost 50 years!

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.
