Our Club has some "Have a Go" karts for hire, we cater for all ages (from 6 years to 80 .....!). This is a great way to find out what it's all about, and have a taste of the fun to be had racing a kart. If you're interested in having a go and hiring a kart, see the flyer below for more information and contacts.
Our race meetings are held on the last Sunday of every month at the Todd Energy Raceway, which is located at the end of Joll Street, Waitara, not far off State Highway 3. We have top-class and well-maintained facilities including a great café which is open on Club Days. Spectators are free, so if you’re interested, come along and have a look.
Karting is a great family sport, and caters to all ages (and abilities!) from the Cadet Class (ages 6 through to twelve) through to Senior classes (ages 15 and upwards). Here in Taranaki we hold a Winter and Summer Series (raced over four meetings each), together with one-off events such as annual Club Championships and Enduro races.
For the more serious competitor, you can progress to racing in out of province series (such as the Goldstar Series held at the Taranaki, Hawkes Bay, Manawatu and Wellington tracks) and the North Island and National Sprint Champs, held annually each year.
The Kartsport New Zealand website http://www.kartsport.org.nz has some very useful detail on what karting is all about.
