Thanks to everyone that took part - we had a thoroughly enjoyable year and look forward to seeing all the racing next year!
It was also a ripper spring day for our last club day of the year on Sunday.
A good sized Combined Light class put on an energetic show, and we had some fun with those that registered for our Come and Try sessions after the racing.

Plenty of fun was to be at our end of year fun day, with the track running forward then reverse, welcoming home the club's first black plate winner in many years, hearing the glorious roar of an historic twin engine, and even finding a superb blue tongue lizard in the club rooms!
There was a good turnout of members and friends, and everyone seemed to have a good time, many commented that they loved the thrill of running the track in reverse.
2016 club champion presentations followed the fun day activities:
2016 Cadet 9 Club Champion: Akasha McEachran
2016 Cadet 12 Club Champion: Zaiden Barry
2016 Senior Club Champion: John Page
2016 Harry's Junior Challenge: Akasha McEachran

2016 Club Member of the Year: Bob Shears
You may not always see Bob on a race weekend, but he puts in an enormous amount of effort at every club working bee, and many times when there wasn't even a working bee scheduled.
A massive thanks to Bob from Ballarat Kart Club for all his hard work.
Congratulations to our 2017 champions!
