Sunday, 27th May 2018 at Newtons Property, Connolly Road, Seadown – will be signposted from Dominion Road on State Highway 1.  For those travelling North Dominion Road is on the right after travelling through Seadown and for those travelling South is the first road on the left once through the first set of passing lanes after Temuka

Please no dogs and remember to clean up after yourselves and respect the farmers property.

Scrutineering is at 10:00am – 10:30 followed by drivers briefing.  Please bring karts to the sign in table and form 2 lines for karts to be scrutineered.  Please wait with your kart then sign in.

Can we please have clean karts for scrutineering.  Numbers must be on all four sides of the kart and be clearly readable, black on white or white on black.  No numbers, no points.


We recently held our Club’s AGM and there have only been a few changes to the committee especially Secretary as Angela Rae has decided to step down Thanks for all your work Angela.  If you have any questions, ideas or concerns please talk to any of our friendly team

President:  Shaun Clark

Vice President: Gareth Welch

Treasurer:  Richard Brown

Secretary:  Arron Campbell

Committee: Jason Todd, Jerard Trumper, Debbie Brown, Glen Cottle, Michael Wilson  and  Aaron henderson

As well as a few changes to the committee there was a decision to change the club champs format slightly the first 3 qualifying races will remain the same to determine the grid positions for the forth and final race with points accumulated from the 3 previous races added to the points gained in final race to determine the club champion in each grade.  If any positions are tied on points after the 4 rounds there will be a 2 lap run of between the 2 karts that are tied to determine the winner


A reminder on the meanings of all the different flag colours/actions

GREEN (flag held and dropped) = Go

RED  Danger, race over, slow down to a stop until further instructions

YELLOW = Caution, SLOW DOWN, hold position until you have passed hazard. NO OVERTAKING.

BLACK (flag rolled and presented toward you specifically)  Warning of an offence. See the Head        Marshal at the end of the race

BLACK (flag waved at you specifically) = Must stop immediately. Further action to be decided by the Head Marshal.

WHITE = Last lap. One further lap to complete to end of race.

CHEQUERED = Winning Flag (if you’re first). Finish of race.

Hand signals 

Always raise a hand to indicate if you are leaving the track.

If you spin out raise one hand to warn other drivers, if you are stuck or can’t get going again raise two hands to signal you need help, get your kart off the track as soon as it’s safe to do so.
