Mildura Kart Club

As per an email sent via the Victorian Government to Karting Victoria we are required to close the track. Go kart sporting clubs are one of the many facilities that have been made to close.

The decision we made on Thursday night to shut our track for the safety of our members is now been enforced by the Victorian Government.

All decisions we make as a committee for the safety of our members and the longevity of our club and are not made lightly. While we would all rather be out the track we are all required to comply with this decision.

Stay at home and stay safe everyone

COVID-19 UPDATE

Due to the continuing speed of the virus we will be closing the track to help stop the spread. We will let you all know when it is safe to reopen. Until then we hope everyone stays safe.

Why not leave it open to members?? There is no racing at the moment anyway. You are not going to get or spread corona virus if there are a few people out there using the track and adhering to social distancing rules. .....

Can’t see the logic in this 🤔

No......

KARTING VICTORIA
COVID-19 VIRUS UPDATE – ALL CLUBS - Effect on Victorian Competition - 17 March 2020

Russell White
Karting Victoria – President

Please see below for important information from Karting Victoria regarding the latest response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

Circumstances continue to change daily and while we do not intend to overload you with information, we will provide you with updated information related to Karting as and when it is available and needed.

Our objectives are to ensure the health and safety of the Karting Victoria Community, while ensuring that the wheels keep spinning for our Clubs during this challenging period.

All the decisions outlined below have been made with primary consideration being given to the well-being and safety of all participants in our sport from volunteer officials, canteen staff, to competitors and their families, and spectators.

The Karting Victoria Executive has decided that no race meetings will be held in Victoria effective immediately until, June 1, 2020 - This date is subject to change pending the outcome of the crisis situation over the coming weeks.

Because the situation with the Covid-19 crisis is fluid we are hopeful that it may be possible to run May Club Day events despite these events being within the moratorium period advised above.

Notification of a decision on that will be provided in time for clubs to apply for the necessary permits if that is the decision reached.

The upcoming Victorian Kart Championship, Metro Series, the next two rounds of the Victorian Country Series and the next round of the Golden Power Series have all been postponed.
Karting Victoria will develop a revised calendar for the remainder of 2020 once the full extent of the affect the COVID-19 crisis is further understood.

Karting Victoria is committed to running the Victorian Kart Championship on a suitable date later in the year.

It is the intention, that if possible, all rounds of the Victorian Country Series and Golden Power Series are also completed.

Achieving this in a shorter period of time will require some significant alteration of events throughout the State and we will aim to minimise as many inconveniences as possible.

The Karting Victoria Executive, at the request of Karting Australia, is urgently reviewing the potential to run Kart Fun Sessions during this moratorium period in order to allow participation in this great sport we all enjoy to keep rolling.

If this is possible, such sessions will only be allowed to be conducted under very strict guidelines, in order to keep safe the participants, volunteers and spectators.

If Kart Fun Sessions can be accommodated, the guidelines imposed MUST be followed to the letter.

Regardless of the type and size of the event, the operation of all Clubs and on-track activities must respect and apply the COVID-19 virus control measures advised by Karting Australia on 16 March 2020.

Club Members are still able to also complete private practice sessions throughout this time, unless otherwise advised.

These are decisions that have not been taken lightly, but we believe they are necessary to reduce exposure to the virus and to keep all of our Victorian Karting Community safe.

COVID-19 Updates
We cannot stress enough that this is a fluid situation and it is highly likely that over the coming weeks and months there will be a reasonably significant number of communiqués from us, or Karting Australia, to the Karting Victoria Community.

Most, if not all of them, will come via email. Please make sure that your email program is set so that our emails come into your inbox and not your junk mail. I said earlier that we will only send the important messages.

Please, if you get a COVID-19 email from Karting Victoria or Karting Australia, take the time to read it as it will be important!
Let’s All Do Our Part
We are currently facing a global health crisis and we require everyone to do their part and to not take unnecessary risks.

If we all do our part, and don’t take any shortcuts, then the chances of our sport, and indeed the whole community, riding out this crisis ought to increase significantly.

This is all your kid wants to hear from you after trying their hardest out on the track.... maybe it didn’t go as well on the track as you thought? Take a step back from your idea of how your kid should have gone and instead great them with positivity when they come off that track “you done a great job, we are proud of you”.
Remember a positive approach goes a long way!Have you ever wondered what the kids really want to hear after the race?

About The Mildura Kart Club

Mildura had it’s first taste of “Go-Karts” in 1960 when a “KART” appeared at the Mildura Sporting Car Club with a few bits of steel with four wheels and a steering wheel with a motor attached. The bug soon caught on and many more karts “appeared” almost overnight.

Membership grew rapidly with almost all Sporting Car Club members purchasing or making their very own “Go Karts”. Members would travel away to compete at other tracks and very soon they built their own dirt track then sought affiliation with the Governing body.

In 1972 Mildura Kart Club applied for and was granted their very first OPEN meeting. This meeting was granted for the long weekend in June, the Queens Birthday weekend and to this day, has always run on the long weekend in June.

This meeting was staged over a one day race meeting until the mid 1980’s when the Club applied for and was granted a TWO DAY MEETING to be held on the long weekend in June.

This meeting is one of the most prestigious meetings run in Victoria aside from the Victorian Open and attracts drivers from all over Victoria, South Australia and regular visitors from Queensland.

Mildura has bred many States Open and Closed Title holders, a National Title holder and two place -getters. We now boast 3 “Driver of the Year” for Victoria winners.

They being Neal Gathercole who won in 1995, Gary Dickinson who won in 1999 and Scott Ferguson who won in 2000 as well as many other Open Title meetings winners have come from our “small” country club.

We have also bred and groomed a current “Young Lion” driver and V8 supercar driver. They being Rick and Todd Kelly who both drive for the Holden Racing Team and K-Mart Racing team.

We are proud of our drivers and what they have achieved. We are very isolated in Mildura and in order for our drivers to achieve what they have achieved, their families have had to make many sacrifices.

There are 8 Life Members of which 4 are still actively involved with the Club.

The Life Members are:

Bill Jory, John Dowson, Phil Sedgmen, Harry Toole, John Dyson, Les O’Connor, Ross Gathercole and Genevieve Gathercole.
