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.






Track Closure Tuesday 29th November due to track hire by Swinburne University.  Track will reopen the next morning as per normal at 9am.  This will allow the club to complete some works also.

17/07/2021 -   Gate operation to start 01/08/2021


As of Monday Morning for the next couple of weeks members who have not picked up a Gate card for GKC will start receiving them in the mail. They are a standard while card with a specific number which has been recorded against your membership. The Geelong Kart Club automated gate will be turned on from 01/08/2021. 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. 🙂





As of Friday morning for five days GKC will be closed due to another Vic Lockdown.  Track will re open at this time on Wednesday morning 21/07/21 at 9am as per normal.  This may of course change depending on government announcements.




With the 25 km restriction gone for Melbounre

members Club Event 3 will run this Sunday the 20th

June as per normal.  Entries are taken in the canteen

between 8am and 9am .  Lets make this a great

event .  The track will re open for practise as per 

normal Saturday morning at 9am . 




Geelong Kart Club will open for the public holiday on

Monday the 14th June 21 between 9am and 5pm.  

This will be controlled practice and Melbourne based

members are strictly prohibited from attending as per

state government regulations.  The track will then be

closed for the rest of the week until further notice.





The Geelong Kart Club will hold a practice day this 

Saturday the 12th June 2021.  The track will be open

to all non Melbourne members who are still under 

the 25 km travel ban rule at this time.  Gates will open

at 9am and conclude at 5pm.  The track will be 

closed Sunday.





Due to the 25km restriction on our Melbourne 

members due to the covid restrictions the club event

scheduled for Sunday 13th June 21 has been

postponed until further notice.  We will run it at first

opportunity when restrictions are eased.  




GKC will open for Sunday 06.06.21 only between 9am

and 5pm.   Anyone wanting to use the facility on this

date must email : with details of 

driver / pit crew.  This is the only contact where

emails are to be forwarded.  The following strict

conditions apply:


-  If driver is a over 18 then no pit crew allowed.

-  If driver is junior etc maximum one guardian.


Three quarters of our membership base is Melbourne

based and we must stress that Melbourne based 

members will not be allowed to travel down to use 

the track Sunday and will not be granted entry.  This 

is the CHO directions and large fines remain in place.


There will be a maximum of 50 persons allowed at any one time inside the track.  Face masks must be 

worn.  The track will then remain closed until Friday 

morning 9am at this time when hopefully we will be 

able to re open. 





The Geelong Kart Club will remain closed for Friday

the 4th of June.  GKC is currently obtaining further

information and will update members at first opportunity.





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 Geelong Kart track is closed due to the Vic Gov

lockdown until Friday morning the 4th June at 9am at this stage.  This is of course dependent on the current

lock down not being extended.  Take care and we will

see you at the track when this latest lock down is all

over :)





New CCTV cameras have been installed and allow 24 

hour monitoring of Geelong Kart Club front gate 

inside and out.  The system has a full long term 

storage capacity and can be remotely viewed.  One 

more step in protecting our great club.





This Saturday and Sunday morning between 9am 

and 1pm anyone can attend at the GKC entrance

office and renew / take out a license -membership.

Any and all other questions can be answered for you.

Maxxis Tyres have been a revelation for KNSW.  At only 


$230 a set for cadets and seniors Maxxis Sport Tyres will 


be one of the options you will find in our new club event


class structure for most classes.  Check out the new Club

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.







The 2021 GKC Club event class structure is now available

This means exactly as it reads.   We need all drivers who


will be competing in the soon to be announced new club


events to purchase their own transponders from Mylaps.


You need to go online and make the purchase that suits 


your needs .  You will then need to register the transponder


with the appropriate driver details on the mylaps website.


All drivers having their own registered transponders will


make the race meets run smoothly and will be a non


negotiable requirement for your entry to be accepted.  Get


on mylaps now and don't leave it to the last minute.

surface.  BBQ and drinks will be held at Lunch time.






The track has finally had the bitumen laid and will re open 


officially on the 01/01/2021 - New Years Day.  Track will be


open between 9am and 6pm each day to members only.  


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.








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. 








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 




- 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 or call/text


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


direct debit to GKC account.











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.








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. 





Successful practice days lead to further days next week




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 









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   In the article below and on the KA


website are further instructions which must be completed.








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 .   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 




-  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.











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.







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.








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


eye on this page for the exact date,  most likely a Sunday.








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.









Karting Australia Travel Register and Isolation Form

Australia members must complete and submit to KA the 


above form which can be found on the Karting Austalia web


site. It only takes a few seconds to fill out but must be
