Thanks to all that played a part in last weekend's relocated event.
Ballarat Kart Club and South West Kart Club pitched in to run the final round at a different location, and everything went pleasingly well.
We cant wait to see all our competitors, officials, volunteers and guests back next year when we host our first VCS round on out new circuit.
The club committee has made the difficult, but necessary, decision to relocate our upcoming and final round of the Victorian Country Series
to the South West Kart Club
in Cobden on the 18 & 19 November, 2023. This decision is based on the need to delay laying the new track surface.
Our members have done an AMAZING job in recent months and weeks in supporting working bees, allowing us to complete important works. Our civil contractor has done a great job in preparing the track base ready for asphalt – being able to see layout, albeit in red dirt, gets us excited!
Unfortunately, the weather has gotten the better of our timeline and we had to make the difficult decision to delay the opening. This is primarily due to the need for optimum temperature to lay the new surface, which will require time to cure before accepting traffic.
We know this is disappointing and we want nothing more than to reopen to members as soon as possible and allow the karting community to come along and experience our new track and events. It is however critical for our long-term success that we follow the advice of the asphalting contractor. This means relocating our VCS event.
The good news is that the asphalt works won’t be too far away, and with a preliminary Karting Victoria inspection having been completed, we are progressing to have members back on track as soon as possible.
Victorian Country Series
competitors will see updated event information and promotions in the coming days. We thank the VCS commitee and South West Kart Club
for working with us on this change and look forward to hosting you in Cobden for the final VCS round for 2023!
Your club has achieved a lot this year, with over 1500 volunteer hours clocked up so far on the track extension!
But absolutely EVERY week remaining is important for your club to be able to re-open in time.
So we are making every attempt to get the bulk of jobs complete by early October, so we need a big final push every Saturday possible from here on in.
We will put on a BBQ whenever needed for feed our volunteers.
