New cadet rules are been introduced in 2020, if you’re looking at getting into karting or have been previously involved make sure you have a look and keep up to date.NEW CADET LICENCE RULES TO APPLY FROM JANUARY 1

Additional Safety Training Requirements for First Time Licence Applicants.

From the start of January 2020, all Cadet aged drivers applying for their FIRST COMPETITION LICENCE will be required to undertake at least eight (8) hours of supervised driving practice before undertaking their Observed Licence Session (OLS) at their chosen Karting Australia Club.

The new Safety Training Requirements mean that a Cadet aged driver must complete at least eight (8) hours of driver training/practice on a Karting Australia licenced track prior to undertaking their OLS.

The new Rule requires that:

“At all times while the Driver is undertaking the required training/practice, they must be supervised by either:

A Parent who is the holder of a Participants License; or A person who is 18 years of age or older who is the holder of a racing licence issued by or recognised by Karting Australia; or
A driving instructor/coach who is recognised by Karting Australia.

The person supervising the New Cadet Driver’s Practice sessions must complete the details of the practice undertaken on the New Cadet Driver Practice Log form which must be provided to the Official who conducts the Driver’s OLS before they are permitted to undertake the OLS.”

At the time of applying for their first licence, new Cadet aged drivers will receive a Practice Log Form by email that must be completed in just the same way that learner drivers on the road are required to log their practice hours. It’s a one-time-only requirement.

The OLS requirements to be undertaken before a new driver is permitted to commence racing remain unchanged.

“The new supervised practice or training requirements for our first time Cadet drivers is a logical and simply attainable step in the new licencing process,” said Karting Australia CEO Kelvin O’Reilly.

“Safety is of the highest importance in our sport and ensuring that our youngest drivers have received training in the basics of driving before they start to race will improve the overall experience for everyone on the track.”

A list of Karting Australia Recognised Driving Instructors and Coaches will be available on the Karting Australia web site.

There is no fee charged for driving coaches and instructors to become “Recognised” by Karting Australia but the credentials of coaches and instructors will be assessed by an independent expert panel. All Recognised Driving Coaches and Instructors are required to provide proof of a current Working With Children Check.

The initial list of Karting Australia Recognised Driving Instructors and Coaches will be contacted in the coming days via email.

If you have not received this email by December 6 and wish to apply to be listed as a Recognised Driving Instructor/Coach should email outlining their relevant experience.

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.
