Awesome job by Bendigo Kart Club member Ayrton and his mates for smashing their fundraising goal for a great cause that affects too many of usToday marks 1 year since Ayrton Creagh Motorsport and I launched the #racingforpink campaign.

Together, we had the idea to raise $1000 for the McGrath Foundation and raise awareness for breast cancer.

Across the 3 months that the campaign ran for, we raised a total of $1284!

On top of raising all the money, we also took a 4 year old kart to win an Australasian Kart Championship and even got on national news!

About The Bendigo Kart Club

The Bendigo Kart Club purchased their plot of land in 1966. The track surface was originally dirt with an oil finish. 

Today the race circuit, known as Marong Raceway is bitumen and the club hosts many successful race meetings on the Victorian race calendar.

Racing began on the track in 1968 and the first Country Titles Open Meeting was held on the bitumen track in 1971.

The track is located on the Calder Highway west of the township of Bendigo.
