Invitation to all TAG sprint kart drivers.

The Victorian Superkart club is inviting all TAG drivers to come out to Calder Park on Sunday October 5 for try drive sessions.

The session will run at the conclusion of Superkart racing and will cost $100 driving your own kart.

The cost covers your day licence and insurance.

With the current uncertainty within sprint karting this is the perfect opportunity to try something different and see what long track racing is all about.

Nothing needs to be changed on your TAG kart other than the gearing we suggest 16/76 for Rotax max.

If you’d like more information e mail


If you'd like and entry form  here.


Of course it's completely free if you just want to come out for a look.

More lap records fall

To round out the year of new lap records the club congratulates Matt Bass on setting a new lap record for the 250 International class

for the short (Club) circuit at Winton.

Racing at the Winton 300 as a support class arranged by Australian Superkart Events Matt set a new time of 56.1287 taking away the record set by Tony Rath

back in 2000, when Matt was only eight years old. The other totally amazing thing about this record it was only about the third time Matt has driven the kart.


Take this link to ride the lap with him.

Wow those things are fast...Great footage man...Love those dual carbs. 

Great footage, You guys are hardcore racers. All respect to you. I think Superkarts are the heaviest form of racing. Even more so then F1's. 

Bass rocks!!
It's scary just watching it - great footage.
Yep those carbies add to the effect.
Keep up the good work guys
