AASA PRACTISE DAY SCHEDULED FOR 8TH JUNE 2020

 

 

Monday's public holiday will be the last chance ever to drive

 

the Geelong Kart Circuit in its current state before the track

 

closes for 2 - 3 months for major upgrades.  The weekend

 

will be a much needed break for our little bank of staff who

 

have spent the last few weekends at the track giving others

 

the chance to practise.  These same staff will be using the 

 

weekend to complete some final preparations for the major

 

works.  Dont miss this opportunity - The last chance ever 

 

to drive the historic GKC circuit as it was.  The Covid 19

 

rules we have been implementing will be in place and we 

 

again want all to understand that no onlookers or visitors 

 

will be permitted to enter.  Maximum one pit crew per 

 

driver.  Strict social distancing measures will be in place 

 

again.  Hope to see plenty of you down for the final time 

 

on the old surface.

 

 

 

 

29/05/2020

 

 

From 1pm to 5 pm we will be holding a 

 

working bee focusing on weeding , grass cutting and 

 

edging.  Please bring a whipper snipper and let gets a

 

couple of months of grass growth cleaned up.  Lots of 

 

little jobs that need to be cleaned up.

Massive Investment by Geelong Kart Club re track upgrade

 

about to begin.

 

 

The $470,000 upgrade of the Geelong Kart Club Circuit will

 

begin in approx three weeks time.  Max Findlay is the chief

 

co ordinator for the track extension and resurface project

 

and has been doing a wonderful job getting everything 

 

ready.  New flag lights are about to be ordered from the US

 

also in conjunction with the track development.  Its a huge

 

achievement for the club and will take our circuit to over

 

1000 metres !  The old layout will still be available also.  In 

 

even better news the club will remain debt free upon 

 

completion of the works -  now that's progress.

 

 

 

 

 

Saturday 30/05/20 - AASA Practise Day for all karters 

 

starting at 8.30 am and finishing at 5.00 pm.  $50 per 

 

driver or $20 for GKC members who we will subsidise.

 

Strict rules apply - Social distance policies and one pit

 

crew maximum per driver.  No visitors or on lookers. 

 

 

24/05/2020

 

Successful practice days lead to further days next week

 

end.

 

SATURDAY 30th MAY 2020 -  Will be another AASA Practise

 

day.  Same rules will apply as the super successful day we

 

just had today.  What a turn out and a great fun day !  GKC

 

was fully prepared with all the precautions required in 

 

place.  

 

 

 

21/05/2020

 

 

Strict rules in place for weekend practise.  One person 

 

other than driver only allowed at circuit ( Per Driver )

 

 

GKC wishes to advise that rules will be strictly enforced on 

 

Saturday's KA practise day and Sunday's AASA practise 

 

day.   On both days the club will follow a strict entrance 

 

policy of only one person ( pit crew ) per driver.  So this

 

this very clearly means this isn't the time to bring the 

 

family down and kids to play whist driver practises.  This 

 

practise is squarely focused on allowing drivers to get back

 

out on track.  This will be enforced strictly. No arguments 

 

will be entered into.  The club will  not be placed at risk by

 

people not following rules.  If you haven't booked for the

 

Saturday KA practise day you can do so by emailing 

 

dhoges@bigpond.com   In the article below and on the KA

 

website are further instructions which must be completed.

 

 

 

 

19/05/2020

 

 

Information re additional KA practise day on Saturday

 

23/05/2020.  GKC have lodged an application for a permit

 

to run a practise day on Saturday 23/05/20. Whilst we 

 

wait to see if it will happen could any interested members

 

please email their intentions to Dennis at

 

dhoges@bigpond.com .   We aim to have two sessions , 

 

one in the morning between 9 am and 12 am and another

 

in the afternoon between 1 pm and 4 pm.  One pit crew

 

per driver and do not bring all the family etc as this will 

 

just create additional problems.  Please keep persons to a 

 

minimum.  Practise will commence under Karting Australia

 

Stage 1 karting rules.  You must complete the Karting Aust

 

travel register and isolation form when you register with 

 

the club.   You must complete the Covid Safe Declaration 

 

on the Karting Australia website also.  This must be done.

AASA Practise Day Sunday 24/05/2020 - Geelong Kart Club

 

members included.

 

 

 

Great news , we have a simple , workable practice day for

 

all karters set for Sunday 24/05/20 which will run between

 

8.30 am and 5.00 pm.  This is a workable solution to get all

 

karters on track all day without copious amounts of forms

 

and complication.  This is not a Karting Australia event so 

 

KA licenses are not relevant.  Cost will be $50 per driver for

 

with no time restrictions or bookings required.  Just show

 

up!  Geelong Kart Club Members ( not KA license holders )

 

will have the cost subsidised and will pay only $20 per 

 

driver.  Remember you just roll up , follow the rules re

 

social distancing and enjoy karting. Be patient when you 

 

arrive , you will be met at the gate as you drive in and all

 

documentation ( quick and easy ) will be completed.

 

 

 

The following rules and points are not negotiable :

 

-  Entry will not be granted prior to 8.30 AM.  Track will 

 

   close by 5 pm.

 

-  Clubrooms will not be open and not food/drinks will be 

 

   sold.

 

-  The handful of club officials giving up their entire Sunday

 

   and placing themselves at risk will be respected and their

 

   instructions adhered to.  Non compliance will mean you 

 

   leave the track.  There will be no tolerence for poor 

 

   behaviour or people that cant follow rules.

 

-  Social distancing will be enforced and all persons must 

 

   comply.  Limit of one pit crew per driver allowed.

 

-  Maximum of ten people in any single cluster together.  

 

   Social distancing applies within that group.

 

-  You will be stopped at main gate as you drive in and 

 

   entry requirements , payment , paperwork will be 

 

   completed quickly and minimal fuss.  Then you can get

 

  to do what you came for - karting.

 

 

 

This is not a KA practise day and practise will be run at the

 

direction of GKC officials.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

11/05/2020

 

 

Stay tuned in the next week or so hopefully for an update 

 

about the possible return of some form of practise or on track

 

action for karting at GKC.  There are some meetings taking

 

place involving Karting Australia and Karting Victoria in the 

 

next few days which may allow us to provide some important

 

updates for you all.  Kart say much more at this time but the

 

possibility of at least discussing the return to some form of on

 

track practise will take place this week.  We will keep you 

 

posted.  Membership extensions will be placed on hold whilst 

 

we get a guide of where things are going.

Membership Extensions Due To Shutdown

 

As everyone would well know we had to close the track to all

 

members approx three weeks ago.  This of course was out of 

 

our hands and the only responsible thing to do.  There is still

 

much uncertainty about when we will reopen but we are using

 

the time to progress our track extension and resurface of the

 

circuit , the new automated gate and flag light systems as

 

quickly as  possible. 

 

We ask that our members renew their licenses as

 

karting Australia will then add three months onto the renewed

 

period.  Further information from this can be found on the 

 

karting Australia website.  In regards to our GKC

 

memberships  we will be adding three months extra time to 

 

all memberships that expire after June 30, 2020.  This will be

 

completed in the next couple of weeks.  For memberships

 

that expire between 28/03/20 and 30/06/20  we will add an 

 

extra three months memberships after they have been

 

renewed.  If some of the members in this category do not 

 

wish to renew and lost a period of membership they should 

 

email the club to receive a pro rata reimbursment of any lost

 

membership period.  Hopefully this covers everyone.

 

 

 

 

28/03/2020

 

BREAKING NEWS - Geelong Kart Club Track will be 

 

closed as of 12 pm today ( Saturday ). 

 

Karting Victoria has this morning informed clubs that from

 

government information that all kart clubs must close until

 

further notice.  This must happen and the gates will be pad

 

locked shut from 12 pm today.  No members are to attempt 

 

to enter the complex from this time on.  We will endeavour 

 

to keep you posted re any further developments.

 

 

 

24/03/2020

 

 

 

Just clarifying for all our members that the GKC circuit will

 

remain open for practise as per normal.  Please remember

 

to practise the social responsiblities that the govt has asked

 

for at all times.  There is lots of space at the track so keep 

 

your distance and enjoy something we all love. Lets keep our

 

track open through this crisis.  It will be  great place to still

 

have an enjoyable time with the family.  Please practise the 

 

appropriate health practises in the toilet that remains open

 

and bring some form of hand sanitiser with you.  Look after

 

yourselves and happy karting.

AASA Practise Information

 

We will hold another AASA practise day for all our non KA 

 

drivers after the upcoming school holidays are over.  Keep an

Practise Licenses - Available and growing all the time !

 

 

In the current financial climate a practise license which is

 

only $120 for 12 months ( you must still have club member

 

ship ) is a great option.  If your not into racing but still love

 

driving the GKC track this is the option for you. You can 

 

always upgrade to a race license at any time.  The practise

 

license in conjunction with your club membership allows full

 

use of the track as per a full race license - it just doesnt allow

 

you to race.

Vale Brendon Franks

 

 

It is with a heavy heart that the Geelong Kart Club 

 

informs our members that Brendon Franks passed away on

 

Friday the 13th December, 2019.  Brendon was much loved

 

by all who knew him and was without doubt one of the

 

finest men that I had ever had the pleasure to work with and

 

be friends with.  Brendon's kindness and willingness to help

 

anyone will never be forgotten.  Most would know that

 

Brendon was a tireless worker for our club and we can never

 

repay all that he did for us in the company of his loving wife

 

of many years Lorna.  Brendon was a devoted and loving

 

husband, father and grandfather.  Brendon's family will

 

farewell him in a private gathering at Ballarat. 

 

Just six days before Brendon's passing he was with me at the

 

kart club on a early Saturday morning working as always to

 

get the track ready for our members. 

 

Brendon was so looking forward to all the new improvements

 

that were starting at the circuit and all the work he could get

 

his hands into......

 

Brendon was truly a gentlemen and a wonderful friend.  He

 

will be very sadly missed.  Rest in peace old mate,  you were

 

one of a kind.

Club Championship points for 2019 have now been uploaded

 

to the club championship results tab.  Go in and see how you

 

fared this year !  

 

Please remember that as per normal a driver

 

has to drop their lowest points scoring round, so if you

 

missed a round an x is shown against your name.  A zero

 

will refer to the lowest points finish for the year of a particular

 

driver.  This allows drivers to be away for one round each

 

year and still be in the hunt for the championship.  Good luck

 

to all.  A presentation event will be detailed in due course on

 

this web site.

work in with our new track extenstion area in due course. 

 

These large neon advertising towers are a major investment

 

for Beckley Park and will be a great addition to our circuit and

 

and how it looks.  The Towers have been delayed in red tape

 

for a while and we originally envisaged them being complete

Clubday minimum numbers requirement

 

Moving forward GKC will require a minimum of 20 paid entries

 

to be entered on CMS by Wednesday midnight of a clubday

 

weekend to run the event.  For years now GKC has been

 

attempting to have drivers pre enter for events to avoid

 

events being cancelled on the day and to not have those that

 

turn up waste their time and effort.   If the minimum entries

 

are not received them the next morning notifications will be

 

placed on facebook and the club website informing the club

 

event will not be run.  There will be no exceptions.
