Reminders

Unfortunately we need to list the following reminders due to recent track activity.
If any of these apply to you, you probably should know better.

  • Appropriate safety apparel (Shoes, Helmet, One piece driving suit, Gloves etc) is mandatory when using the track
    Refer to the KA Manual Chapter 7 for more specific detail
  • Use of the track is for active financial members only; a previous membership does not constitute an active financial member.
    Practice memberships are available and reasonably priced if you only wish use the track for test days.
    A lot of time, effort, and money goes into maintaining the track, so every contribution helps.
  • Track operating hours are 9:00am until 6:00pm and the track is CLOSED on Tuesdays.
    Kart engines must not be started at the track outside these times.

2015 Rule changes

  • Action cameras can now only be mounted on the Nassau panel (Refer to KA manual for specific detail)
  • A backup/emergency brake cable is now required as a redundant backup to the brake cable.

 

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.
