From now until the end of the April club day, the track will be running CLOCKWISE.

The normal outgrid is not in use during this time, leave the new outgrid (In the middle of the pit paddock) and turn left.

Use the normal pit in, its a tight left hander so take care the first time you practice pit entry.

We look forward to the first reverse club day on April 26 and hope to see you there.
We plan to run 3 clockwise club days this year, with further details of a reverse cup for juniors to be announced soon.

 

A strong contingent of both junior and senior karters will be heading up to Wimmera Kart Club on April 12 for the second round of the 2015 AUSTRANS Victorian Country Series.
Entries are looking great so far, with 125+ entered two weeks out, and we know of at least 11 Ballarat karters that will be competing.
We encourage as many as members as possible to enter the country series and represent our club, its great racing.

Last week students from Yuille Park Community College took to the Haddon track in practice for the RACV Energy Break-through.
Using recumbent human powered vehicles (HPVs), they got a lot of practice around the track on a very warm 30 degree day.
We wish them luck in their competition throughout the year.
