Upgrade to Geelong Kart Club Timing System Reaches the Next Stage.

Hello to all Geelong Kart Club members.  As mentioned in previous news from Dominc I would like to update on our Mylaps track timing system as of May 2023.

Over the last few months we have been working on the installation of underground cabling for two extra timing loops on the 1001 metre long track (3 sectors) also giving us one extra on the 758 metre short track (2 sectors) installing new timings loops across the bitumen.  You may notice the timing loops at canteen corner and the other at the northern end of the back straight, the distance between each loop including Start / Finish line are approximately 335 metres each, exact distance will be provided later.

Over the next couple of months we intend to install two new decoders, providing you with accurate sector times, together with track position of each kart via a track schematic or google map overlay (TBC) for qualifying and racing live on the Speedhive App.

GKC will continue to look at providing drivers, pit crew, family, friends and spectators live accurate information from the Mylaps (speedhive), whether at the circuit or anywhere in the world via the internet.  

 

Regards 

Doug Wilson - Timing and Scoring

The next initiative is designed to help our members sell some of their karts and unwanted items.  We will set aside some weekend dates where members free of charge can sell any karting items they like in a specifically designated area at the track in the pits.  We will allocate a space to each person who wishes to set up a stall etc.  Any non GKC members will have a $10 entrance fee per person or $30 to set up a stall.  Stall size will be approx 6m x 3m each.  We will advise further down the track.  We will look to offer this service perhaps once every few months.  This will also be a great opportunity to perhaps swap items between members as we all have changing karting needs.  Let's see how it goes.  Of course members will also be able to drive the track as per normal on these dates....... of course.

Bump in track to be removed.

In the next 4 to 6 six weeks track works will be completed to remove the bump that you are probably all aware of.  This has now had time to settle and we have put in place the works to get this last remaining issue sorted for our drivers.  No more sore ribs hopefully :)  

There should be minimal disruption and we will let you know further when the works are completed.  The track will initially be closed for one or two days and then the short track will run for a couple of weeks.
