2017 Race Calendar

 

A proposed calendar for 2017 has been published on the Calendar page, note: Dates are subject to change.

 


 

 

Announcement:

 

The Victorian Superkart club is currently preparing to launch a new class within it’s non gearbox ranks aimed squarely at the “non Evo” Rotax owner for our 2017 club series and beyond.

In a nutshell the idea is to allow pre Evo Rotax owners to compete on a level playing field but on Victorias large scale race circuits like Phillip Island, Winton and Broadford.

A race weight of 175 KG’s for seniors has been nominated with no compulsion to ad the superkart bodywork being mandatory.

While it will be necessary to obtain both a CAMS licence and logbook the club will help new members in making the journey of conversion to road racing easier.

Changes to the kart for log book compliance would typically include a larger engine sprocket, rain light and race numbers/plates.

Tyre selection is also a little more open by brand but still controlled.

 

Superkarting can be started from the age of twelve with no adult limit set.

Our club races approximately seven times a year in a club spirited and safe environment with set up tips or parts easily available on race day.

A typical race day consists of approximately 170 kilometres of track time.

 

So if you currently have a pre EVO Rotax kart and still want to race, please e mail: vskc@tpg.com.au or register your interest on our facebook page Victorian Superkart Club.

 

 


 

 

The Clubs next major event will be the Victorian State Titles on November 12 & 13.

2016 a year for celebration.

 

On July 9th  the Victorian Superkart Club will celebrate it’s 40th year.

The Club was formed very early in 1976 under the auspices of the Victorian Karting Association. At the time it was known as the VKA Road Race Division with its roots being at the Corio track just outside of Geelong.

During this period the club also raced at Brooklyn, Mac Park in Mount Gambier, Winton, Calder, Broadford, Adelaide International Raceway (A.I.R.) and others often sharing meetings with Motorcycle clubs.

In February of 1984 the club changed its name to the Victorian Superkart Division, then on July 9 of 1986 registered itself as the Victorian Superkart Club Inc. We affiliated with CAMS during that same year. 

Over the years we’ve had seven Presidents and have lay claim to over Fifty National Champions.

 

We wish to thank our members for their support and especially the many committee members and volunteers who over the last Forty Years who have given of their time in this exciting form of Motorsport.

 

The club looks forward to continuing its rich tradition of fostering Champions and by offering it’s members the most affordable racing at the best circuits our country can offer.

 

The club will celebrate this momentous  occasion in style at a Gala dinner on July 30th.
