Today we invited the Mayor of Ballarat, Councillor Des Hudson, out to our track to learn more about our sport ahead of our VCS round this weekend.

Without even hire kart experience (He has driven a monster truck before though!), Des was quick to start working on smooth lines and pushing the kart harder, and he had quite an enjoyable stint.

Ballarat Kart Club President and Vice-President (Paul Feely and Mal Mason) had a good discussion with Des about the sport, the club and sport in the region.

We thank Des for his time, and hope he enjoyed it.
