Its end of year time and we want to run a club day and award some club champions!

  • If we get the required 15 pre-entries - we will go ahead with a normal club day
  • Even if we don't get 15, we will still go ahead with a fun day like last year (Handicapped time shootout, forward and reverse)
  • 2017 Club presentations and bbq will be at the end of activities

 

We know there are a couple of new junior and senior karters around that are itching for some on track action.
So even if you don't have a race license yet , please think about coming along and we can make something work.

Well done to all the Ballarat members who competed at round 2 of the VCS.
Some mixed fortunes for a few of us in the finals, but well done to all competing in some very competitive classes.
We hope to see many of you at clubday this weekend for a run, so please enter online by Wednesday to give us an idea of numbers

The club will be going ahead with a "Fun Day" on Sunday December 11th, and and the November clubday will not run.

The fun day will be open to all members (Including practice license holders and historic karts)and entry will be free.
- Activity format TBC (Likely a combination of forward and reverse challenges)
- Club champion presentations
- End of year BBQ (We have applied for a temp liquor license for the event)
- Activities will commence from 1:00pm, BBQ and Presentations from 5:00pm

Come out and have some fun on track, learn a few things from other karters, or just kick back and enjoy the BBQ.

Please make yourself known via Facebook, email or message so we can get an idea of numbers

We are very excited that in 2017 we have the first round of the AUSTRANS Victorian Country Series on February 5.
In 2016, Cobden attracted a whopping 200+ entries for  the first round, so we are expecting a big few days this year.
We will need help from all club members, family and friends to make this happen, so make yourself known to the committee by any means possible. (Facebook, email, phone)

As a lead up, we will be running the optional January club day (Jan 29) this year, 1 week before the VCS round.

Please note: Don't get carried away marking pit spots too early, we will mow lawns and mark pit boundaries in mid January.
Only after the lines are marked is anyone welcome to put their name down on a spot.

  • Harry's Challenge for Junior karters
    As we have not run any "reverse" cub days this year, the committee has decided to vote on the Cadet or Junior that has best represented Ballarat Kart Club in 2016 in all events.
    The winner will be named at the "Harry's Challenge" winner for 2016 in honour of Jason Harrison.
    Make sure you rock up to the end of year fun day to find out the winner.

  • The club will be running a January clubday on Jan 29 (1 week before the first VCS round)
  • The community safety grant works are progressing well, fencing and locks are complete, and lighting will be completed by the end of November
