About The South West Kart Club

The South West Kart Club is based at the old Cobden Racecourse and was formed in August 1992 by local members who previously had raced at Geelong and Ballarat. At this first meeting a decision was made to build a first class bitumen track specifically for go kart racing, a plan was drawn up with the track being 966 meters in length and 8 meters in width.

After a lot of hard work from members and the local community which has got right behind the project from the start, the track was finally ready for racing on in March 1996 and has since had rave reviews about its plentiful passing positions, great layout, long straights and the ability to cater for large fields.

Sprint Kart racing is conducted on the last Sunday of every month bar December with racing starting at 12pm and concluding around 4pm, these days are called club days where members of the club can race each other in a relaxed friendly environment for trophies which are presented at the conclusion of the days racing.

The club currently holds three ‘open’ meetings where go karters from other clubs can race at our track and compete for prizes ranging from sets of racing tyres to a racing engine or other go karting products, these days a lot more serious with some of the best drivers in Victoria and South Australia racing at the track. Up to 160 karters have raced at each race meeting and this helps the district in attracting visitors and helps the club meets its financial commitments.

Go Karting is for people of all ages and is very much a friendly family environment, children can start racing at the age of 7 years and there is no age limit for the senior classes. Go Karting has a strict set of rules and regulations to enable fairness for all competitors and this helps promote the ability of the driver and keeps cost to a minimum.

Second hand go karts start in price around the $1500 mark ready to race with the costs of maintaining them approximately $50 upward per month. This makes go karting a very cheap form of motor sport when you compare it to motorbikes or other forms of racing, with the main attraction being the ability to have fun with your friend on the track which is open to members 5 days of the week.

We thank you for taking the time to read this and hope we see you at the track in the near future.
