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.

Karting is the world's most affordable form of motorsport. 

Many people associate it with young drivers, but adults are also very active in karting.


Karting is considered the first step in any serious racer's career. It can prepare the driver for high-speed wheel-to-wheel racing by developing quick reflexes, precision, car control, set-up, mechanical and decision-making skills.


People of all ages can enjoy the sport with children as young as seven competing behind the wheel.


Karting teaches these children, both boys and girls, basic driving skills well before they are able to obtain their road licence.


Karting is competitive, but it is also fun and family orientated, with involvement in the sport both on and off the track giving it a strong feeling of community. It teaches driving skills and offers people an opportunity to gain a career in motorsport, all in a safe and organised environment.


Kart meetings take place at circuits across Australia every weekend and are either a club, regional, state or national level meeting.


Getting into karting is relatively simple. First you need to become a member of your local kart club and start out on a provisional licence. Buying a kart has also been made a lot simpler thanks to a professional trade industry that serves the karters of Australia.
