RACE REPORT

ABOUT THE WIMMERA KART RACING CLUB

Our club was formerly known as the Horsham Go Kart Club. It was a dirt track in the late 1960's where members raced simple homemade karts with Victa motors. It wasn’t until 1981 that they upgraded the circuit to a lime-stone dirt track. In the early days the club had a membership totalling in excess of 100, with up to 60 racing competitively throughout the state.


They then progressed from racing on dirt to a bitumen track, which was laid in December 1982. During the mid 80’s, the track was re-designed and a hot-mix surface applied.

 

A decision was made by the Executive Committee during the 80’s to consolidate the club and a name change was made to the "Wimmera Kart Racing Club"

 

Membership in 1987 was approximately 50. The club had its first race meeting on the new bitumen circuit on Sunday 5th of June, 1988. The official opening of the track was later on in the year during the warmer weather on November 20th 1988.

On 16th December 2022 (34 years later) a new track extension commenced, extending the circuit from 518m to 630m as seen in the above layout.

 

The club will have an OFFICIAL OPENING of the circuit on JULY 31st 2022  - Come and Race on the New Circuit in July. So get some practice in prior to Round 4 and be one of the first drivers to experience our newly upgraded circuit!
