WORKING BEE SCHEDULED FOR THE 28TH OF MARCH 5PM. BRING YOUR WEEDSPRAYER.
A reminder that as of the 1st of March, all karts are to have a plastic rear bumper fitted for all competition. Please ensure your kart complies with the rules to avoid disappointment.
We have a contractor come in and mow the lawns at the track roughly every 2 weeks. While the contractor is working, access to the pits is allowed but use of the track is prohibited. Our mower contractor needs to stop operation if there is a driver on the track, as this is a health and safety issue for both the kart driver and the mower contractor. This is not only a disruption to the mower contractor, but may results in extra costs to the club. Please be respectful and wait until he has completed the lawns before going on to the track.
This new rule is effective immediately. Any member found to be on the track while the mower is in operation will have their key removed from them.
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.
