We greatly appreciate the efforts of the members who volunteered their time at our Bunnings Sausage Sizzle on Saturday!
- It would be great though to have some different members help out once in a while. It’s for your benefit as the funds help to pay to keep your club running so you are able to enjoy using the circuit.
- Thanks to all the people who visited Bunnings Horsham today and bought a sausage... or 2, or 3, or 4, or made a donation to support our Kart Club.
- Thanks to Bunnings Horsham for allowing us to hold the event – we have another BBQ fundraiser on 18/11/2018 to put on your calendar.

Congratulations club member Remo Luciani on your 3rd place over the weekend.The 2018 City of Melbourne Titles are over and done. It was a tough weekend for me right from the start, I never quite had the outright pace and on top of that I was trying to help IAME customers with spare parts and service (which I'm always happy to do to assist) that I forgot to put my transponder on for qualifying, and I had to start last on the grid for the first 2 heats, and thats when the fun began 😊 nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed the tough competition its what keeps me in the seat and coming back for more, I finished the weekend with a 3rd place in KA3 Medium class.

Congratulations to Daniel Webster for being the standout all weekend it was a well deserved win and also congrats to Chris Thomas on his excellent speed as he was the fastest qualifier, won a heat and finished with a well deserved 2nd in the final. I would like to sincerely thank the Go Kart Club of Victoria for putting on a well run Event especially with “311” entries, they ran on time and finished on time. Thanks to all the volunteers and officials on giving up their time on making our race weekend enjoyable. Thanks to @DPE Kart Superstore for their continued support and for the excellent X5 Arrow chassis.

About The Wimmera Kart 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!
