Well what a final Club Event for 2022 !  There were a fantastic 76 entries and all had a great time.  The racing has become so competitive and is wonderful to watch.  The atmosphere in the complex was great to feel and we look forward to 2023. The first ever KZ City of Greater Geelong Titles was won by Jay Coul from Henry Johnstone and Anthony Mrhar.  A mid final rain shower made keeping these beasts on the track a real task.  Geelong's own Danny Richert drove a masterful final in the conditions and bad luck unfortunately cost Danny the win.  The racing in all the classes was fantastic to see and experience and anyone sitting on the fence could only marvel at the drivers in Open Tag 125 Light and of course our DPE boys in 4 Stroke who put on the usual master class of hard fought racing.  Well done to all and it is fantastic to see all the newcomers starting their racing careers.  2023 here we come.  The end of year presentations will be announced in the coming weeks.  See you at the track.

From this date on to obtain access you will need to swipe your card on the swipe pad to get into the Kart complex and to also to exit the kart complex. Cards will stop working upon your membership date expiring so please renew your membership at least one month prior to expiry. Very important to note that the gate cards will only work between the hours of 9am and 6pm. So you must be out well before 6pm. Anyone stuck inside call Dom or Dennis who can open gate remotely. During periods with more daylight we will adjust the closing time to allow longer track access when daylight permits. If you lose your card there will be a $20 replacement fee. So remember 01/08/21 is the date the gate will be closed and card access will be required for entry and exit. 🙂

After endless analysis we determined the old gate 

system was not worth repairing.  We have found a 

great new high tech solution which has been installed

to work with out existing gate and motor.  The system is now full operational.  We will maintain the 

current gate access process until all our members have been allocated a new card.  There will be one 

card per family / member.  Once we re open, every

Saturday and Sunday between 9am and 1pm members can attend at the GKC entrance office and 

obtain their new card.  This process will run until 

further notice.  Members card when active will be 

active seven days a week and work between the hours of 9am and 6pm.  So you must leave the complex prior to 6pm.  Club officials will have the 

ability to open the gate remotely if any problems arise.  Interstate members will need to contact 

Dominic or Dennis to arrange access as they have 

paid for discounted memberships for limited use.  At

this time we will utilise card technology only but in 

future the system is capable of other access methods.

But until further notice the current access arrangements remain in place.  Don't forget cameras

are now fully operational on the entrance gates :)

The Beckley Park carpark redevelopment has commenced. 

 

For info all GKC members when you enter Beckley Park via

 

the main entrance gate the traditional road to the Geelong

 

kart club has been fenced off for now.  The impressive 

 

new works continue the rebuild of Beckley Park with the 

 

large Saturday Market area being completely re designed 

 

and bitumen laid to replace the dirt.  When it is complete

 

in several weeks there will be an awesome new road 

 

through the middle which leads to the GKC main gate.  The

 

end result will look great but for now please watch your

 

speed as you follow a new path to the club.  So in short as 

 

you enter Beckley Park you will no longer turn left - you 

 

will continue straight ahead.  Just watch your speed and be

 

considerate of other vehicles.

Please check the website or facebook page for any days 

 

when the track may be closed.   There will be a BBQ at 

 

lunch time on opening day and drinks will be available.  It

 

has been a long haul and there is still lots to be done but it

 

will all be worth it in the long run.  

 

 

Non Members Welcome Opening Day

 

On opening day only non members can pay a $50 fee and

 

drive the circuit.  This will also allow all of our many

 

recreational drivers who have been attending practise days

 

to drive the new circuit.  The grid will be controlled on this

 

opening day due to expected  high numbers of drivers.

 

 

 

 

02/09/2020

 

 

Work on the GKC extended track and full resurface has 

 

now progressed to the stage where the bitumen is ready 

 

to be laid.  We are now waiting for a series of warmer 

 

weather days to continue the job.   Regarding the new 

 

licenses that GKC will offer,  members are being contacted 

 

and are already signing up to the new AASA GKC license.

 

The cost of the license has been confirmed as only $90.00

 

and will allow for practice and racing at GKC events under

 

the  AASA banner.  All current members will be given a 

 

AASA license for free for the remaining period of their GKC

 

membership.  Further details to follow.  Practice license 

 

holders and new members will only have to take out a club

 

membership and the new license.  A digital copy of the 

 

license will be emailed to holders in due course.  Existing

 

GKC members with KA license holders are being contacted

 

and will be given discounted costs to allow those that wish

 

to maintain their existing licenses and obtain the new AASA

 

license.  More to follow in future updates. 

 

 

 

 

12/07/2020

 

 

Work on the track upgrade is going to plan and on schedule

 

We have been really lucky with the winter weather so far

 

and this has allowed us to complete a great deal of extra

 

preparation tasks.  At this time we estimate that bitumen 

 

will begin to be laid in approx 4 weeks time.  During this

 

time we will continue to finish off other jobs we need 

 

completed around the complex whilst the track is closed.

 

In relation to the new Race America flag light system it has

 

arrived in Australia and is currently at Dunlop Kartsport 

 

where stands will be constructed and configuration for the

 

Geelong track will be developed. 

 

Points of Interest for GKC independent status :

 

- We will have partnerships with various organisations 

 

such as AASA , Karting NSW and others which will involve

 

the running of race meetings.

 

- We will have a new style of monthly ( club event ) open 

 

to a greater range of karters which will include a club 

 

championship.

 

- When the track is complete all of our current members 

 

will be able to come and practise at the circuit.

 

- Simple processes for updating club membership are being

 

reviewed and further information will be available in due 

 

course.  Membership fees will not increase.

 

- GKC will have far greater flexibility to make the circuit 

 

available for members in the current covid climate once 

 

track is complete.

 

- GKC in due course will offer local , open and state style 

 

events for karters.

Major News - Geelong Kart Club Moves to 

 

Independent Status

 

GKC is no longer affiliated with Karting  Victoria or Karting

 

Australia.  In the coming weeks whilst we complete the 

 

awesome track upgrades and works announcements will 

 

be made to our new partnerships and path forward.  The 

 

future looks wonderful and to be free to take on new

 

initiatives is like a breath of fresh air.   All members will be 

 

good to practise on the circuit when it opens as per normal

 

and be covered by our new arrangements.  The transition 

 

will be seamless !   Any current members wanting to come

 

look at progress of the new track are welcome this Sunday

 

the 05/07/2020 between 11am and 1pm.  For our current 

 

practice license holders no need to renew practice 

 

licenses as these mean nothing at GKC anymore.  Your

 

membership with GKC will be what you require to practice 

 

at GKC as normal.  Emails and further information will be

 

posted in due course. All membership renewals and new 

 

memberships please email gkc10@outlook.com or call/text

 

Dom on 0447 607796.  You will be able to pay by EFT or 

 

direct debit to GKC account.

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.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

18/04/2020

 

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

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.

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.

March Clubday is only two weeks away on the 22/03/2020.

 

Karting Victoria have used the normal last day in March for

 

the country series so we had no choice but to run one week

 

early.  Pre entries will be up in the next day or so.  With GKCV

 

not having a clubday in March any of their members are 

 

welcome.  So please get your pre entires in.  This is very

 

important to help the club attract entries.  If you want your

 

class to form simply enter early!
