Hi Guys and Girls, we are in need of a couple of volunteers for Joker Poker on Friday night at Prattys patch. Will take roughly 1 1/2 hrs of your time and will be helping your club. We are starting to see a good return from the efforts so far and it would be good for it to continue. If you can help out make contact through here or give Leigh a call.
Thanks in advance.

Clubday run and won, great work by all competitors.
A few big highlights with a good field of cadet 9 taken out by Harry Arnett, a new restricted light lap record by Simon Phillips AND one of our club favorites Willy scored his first podium!
Big thanks to all our Stewarts, timing team and Canteen team.

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.

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.
