The club meets at the Todd Energy Raceway in Waitara on the last Sunday of each month (wet or fine), with the odd exception. Details can be found on the Race Calendar.
CONGRATULATIONS to our newest life member Peter Cottam. Peter has been instrumental in moving the club forward over a number of years as the Club Captain. Thanks for your efforts Peter, well deserved!
GOOD LUCK to Logan Boyde, Peter Cottam and Derek Lawrence who are competing in the NZ Superkart Champs at Hampton Downs on the 24th of September. Logan will be running two classes. He's out to defend his NZ title in the rotax max light class and he'll also be trying to win the KZ2 class which is a stand alone superkart class for the first time. Peter and Derek will be running Rotax Max Heavy. Good luck boys!! Don't forget to give it an almighty dose of the jandal!
We need a race secretary to help the club run it's meetings. If any of your family or friends are wanting to get involved in the club then please contact us.

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.
