2020, We Are Ready!!!There are just 6 weeks to go before the best karting series in the country* gets underway for 2020!

We are MADLY working away to get everything ready for round one at Portland District Karting Club and we will post the full details as soon as confirmed.

What we can confirm this week:
- DPE Kart Superstore are the 2020 naming rights sponsor of the VCS- and this means great prizes for you.
We gave away a truckload of prizes worth tens of thousands of dollars in 2019.

Remo Racing and IAME are back with a bang: We will again give away a massive prize of an X30 and a KA100 engine to 2 lucky winners; that's worth almost $7K by itself.

Over 100 karters that did all 6 rounds in 2019 and got one free round entry for 2020.
This generous offer worth around $8K will again be on offer for the 2020/2021 season for those that do all 6 rounds.

Plenty more announcements to come over the next few weeks, and we are hoping to be able top reveal something special very soon.

*We used to be a bit more modest, but surely we can get away with making that claim after such an enormous 2018 and 2019? 😜

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 Wimmera Kart RACING Club

“The Early Years”
The Wimmera Club was first formed as the Horsham Go-Kart Club in 1968, with members racing simple homemade machines with Victa motors. The location of the club was at the Dooen Recreation Reserve, north of Horsham where the track is still located today.

A decision was made by the committee during the 80’s to consolidate the club and a name change was made – to the Wimmera Kart Racing Club. Also during the mid 80’s the track was re-designed and a hot-mix surface applied. In the early days the club had a membership totalling in excess of 100, with up to 60 racing competitively throughout the state.

“Location”
The Club is located in Horsham which is on the banks of the Wimmera River, some 300km north-west of Melbourne, and 450km south-east of Adelaide on the Western Highway. Horsham, the capital of the productive and efficient rural region of western Victoria know as the Wimmera.

“Horsham”
Highlights of Horsham include the botanic gardens, May Park, Wimmera River and the immaculate, highly renowned Horsham golf course which is a short drive west and the newly built in 2006 the Horsham Aquatic Centre. The population is currently around 19,000. Wheat and sheep, together with fruit and vegetables, are the main produce of the area. The town also has an industrial sector.

Horsham provides you with vibrant shopping experiences, and everything you could possibly want is to be found right here. Select from independent and chain outlets to a mix of retail businesses, from boutique and individually owned, to multinational outlets, all within easy walking distance and with good car parking. Horsham also has a new Aquatic Centre. Maybe a picnic in the cool shaded Botanic Gardens designed by Sir William Guilfoyle, the curator of Melbourne’s royal botanic gardens. Horsham also functions as a base for those wishing to explore Grampians National Park which is just a 30 minute drive. The city has many fine restaurants, hotels, from apartments and motels to caravan parks and bed & breakfasts, Horsham offers accommodation for all tastes.

Horsham is a great place to relax after a hard days racing!
