Power Series Swan Hill weekend ??

Disappointed as I thought the date was changed to September club weekend 😳😳😳

Would have made the trip down for a fun night but power series 🤷‍♀️

We would have been there but like everyone else, we are at Swan Hill GPS

Too bad it's a power weekend...

Looking for an adult kart so I can race with my son he has one already but I thought I may as well while he’s there.

Timing on MyLaps???

That’s awesome for the Club and especially the kids who were really looking forward to competing and just aren’t ready to go up to B Grade quite yet. It’s great that they can have their own competition.

Woohoo wonderful news, going to be a wonderful weekend 🙂

Great news. Well done guys

Whoohooo great news.

Great news!

Awesome

Make that 54. Seriously poor effort on behalf of KA and karting Victoria. Their advertising re this event is way below standard. I totally understand GGKC and their minimum entry requirements, but these 25 odd cadets who have been waiting months for this event are going to be gutted.

If it’s an issue of not having enough money to run the event, couldn’t every competitor pay a little extra to make up for the missing 11 entrants?

Getting fined/penalty’s by KA officials for immaterial incidents that could have just involved a warning.(combined with a bullshit attitude). No thanks won’t be coming back.

If only i still raced.. still have my 1st place trophy for coming 1st against all the boys back in senior national

Where are all the tag medium/heavy drivers? And KA3 for that matter

Fingers crossed we get more entries. Would be such a shame for everyone who’s entered if it’s cancelled.

Come on people. Our sport needs us. 🤨

Why can’t we just race with 49?

Only 49 for C&D titles...... Jacob Lawson

Last night we held one of our club meetings and come to the agreement that if we don’t get 60 Pre-Entries before next Monday (13/8/18) we will have to cancel the 2018 C&D Grade Titles! It would be such a shame to see this event get canceled. The C&D Grade Titles has seen young drivers excell over the years that now compete at the elite level of karting, Formula Ford racing and also, Supercars racing! So it would be great if everyone that is intending to race this meeting pre enters before Monday and gets behind this great event! ... See MoreSee Less

any chance of opening it up to b & a grade drivers and classes and making it the Gippsland titles? maybe an added incentive to c&p drivers for being the first across the line in each class? just an idea 😁

I would enter but cant make it Saturday, happy to come Sunday and start from the back in all races. Also havent done OLS yet, was going to do that next week at clubday

Have pre entered my daughter 🤞 the day goes ahead. It’s a wonderful event 🙂

Sad to see if it gets cancelled. Always was a well run, great event. Perfect stepping stone for getting experience to get into bigger events.

With the number of entries expected, could qualifying be moved to Sunday? I and others then may be able to make it without taking Friday off work to travel. Just a thought for consideration.

Just entered TaG R Med, we seem to get good numbers for this class on club days, should get a big field for this event👍

Wanting to enter my 8 year old in cadet 9, not sure if 1 can help?

What happens to accommodation that has already been paid for?

Up everyones entry by $20

Thanks to the club and officials for allowing Harrison to wave the Chequered Flag for his fellow Cadets. He was really upset and disappointed that his engine let go before the warn up but waving the flag put a big smile on his face, so thank you very much. Also another big thanks to for your support with Kait's crash. Luckily the xray shows no apparent fracture so she can't wait till the c & d titles.

Great that Harrison got to see the racing from a different perspective, and good on him for getting up there with the starter. Glad to hear Kait's arm isn't broken she is a great competitor and has a fantastic attitude.

Well done to all the cadets out in the hail, it may have hurt but you all did a great job handling it.

About The Gippsland Kart Club

GGKC history

A meeting was called for people interested in forming a go kart club in the Latrobe Valley. This was held at the Church hall in Traralgon, on the site where the Saloon Bar currently sits. The meeting took place on 16 February 1983 – Ash Wednesday. Noel and Pam Morrisby called the meeting and were late getting there due to road blocks caused by the fires. At this meeting they were elected President and Secretary with those attending this first meeting made honorary members of the “Latrobe Valley Kart Club”. 

Lloyd Wicks and his sons Mark and Grant were at the meeting and they are possibly the only people from that first meeting still involved in the sport. (Not 100% sure, but Ken Bright and Rob Bumpstead might have been there, or the 2nd meet the following month – not 100% sure of any others)

Soon after, the club held it’s first race meeting – an “Open” in the North car park of the Mid Valley Shopping Centre. It was a day/night meeting and attracted the main Melbourne drivers. Alan and Rob Bumpstead competed, as did Greg Smith, John Lord, and the Ritter brothers Michael and Greg (in sub-juniors) as well as many others.

Club racing was held at the Morwell Hillclimb in 1983-84. Club members Barney Hogan and Nigel Brockelsby did an enormous amount of earthworks at the track to allow karts to race. It was like a mini Bathurst, but was so narrow that at part of the track racing had to be single file! The VKA eventually stopped the racing there due to safety concerns and the club was trackless for a few years until the Tramway Park circuit opened in 1988. A number of members traveled the state and competed at Geelong, Oakleigh and Brooklyn until the local circuit was ready.

As part of promoting the sport and growing its membership, the club ran numerous meetings in the SSW Shopping Centre car park in Sale in 1986. 

In 1987 a new track at Tramway Park was built and the first open meeting was held 14th February 1988. On 10th December 1989, the club put on the ‘Wings & Wheels’ spectacular on the RAAF base in Sale. This used the runways and taxiways on what turned out to be a high speed layout that again attracting the state’s top karters.
