Monthly meeting tonight people, see ya's there. ... See MoreSee Less

Cheers to Leigh and Trent for taking the karts down to Prattys Patch Friday for Joker Poker. Having a display and Charlie in her suit worked a treat with the biggest amount raised so far. The raffle will only get bigger and better as the prize gets bigger so if you can help out on a Friday night for an 1hr or so let Leigh know. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi everyone, just a reminder we are having a Stewards course at our club rooms this Saturday 4th of July from 1pm until 4pm.
Tea and coffee provided. It's a great chance to get accredited and will hopefully take the pressure off our long serving current officials. It's free of charge so if you have the time it would be great to get a good turn up. If you can reply if your coming or let Willy know that would be appreciated.

Due to not getting our minimum of 15 entries this months clubday has been cancelled. Members are welcome to attend other clubs. A number of members are heading to Rochester now also Ballarat so if you haven't been to another track grab a Bendigo member or local to help with your setup.
Hopefully next month people will be available and we can run at home.
Happy racing and see you next month.

Another good night down at Prattys Patch on Friday, joker poker went well.
Thanks to Willy and Trent for the help selling tickets.
Next week Leigh and Chummy are heading down but we need a couple of volunteers for the following week. If you could let me or Leigh know that would be great. This fundraiser could be really good for the club so we need members to get behind it.
Good luck to all members racing today!

Big thanks to these boys this morning, got the canteen roof all scraped and started painting, still a bit to do but we've made a start. Also Gordy did some drop off filling on double right hander.
Thanks to Leigh and a few fellas for running the joker poker down at Prattys, a few bucks were raised so let's keep it going.
Contact Leigh if you can help out on a Friday for an hr over the coming weeks.

Hi all, we are running the next round of Joker Poker (Fund Raiser) at Prattys Patch starting this Friday.
Leigh will be there this week to kick it off as he has been the driving force in getting this off the ground for us. It would be great to have a few members there to see how it goes down and for people to think about a Friday night that they can give the club a couple of hrs to sell some raffle tix. There is a lot of potential for the club here. Kick off is at 6.30pm. Any questions let us know.

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.
