Canberra Kart Racing Club make racing affordable

As of today (6th Feb 2019), joining Canberra Kart Racing Club will become more affordable. Annual fees will be as follows;
$150 Family Membership (includes practice)
$100 Standard driver Membership (includes practice)
$30 Associate non driver Membership

CKRC President, Bob Harnas, said “This is more good news out of Canberra, we are looking to further what KNSW is doing and make karting affordable. There are lots of factors we have no control over, membership is one area we can.”

“We have made membership value for money. Members enjoy the benefits of accessing the track 7 days a week from 9am to 5pm. All CKRC members receive a gate pass and can practice when ever they want (conditions apply). The track belongs to the members and all profits made go straight back into the facilities for all members to enjoy.”

This weekend we will be hosting the first round of the Southern Stars Series and the first round of the CKRC Championship. Pre Entries are open. Entries will also be taken on Saturday for those drivers who have not been able to pre Enter.

CKRC look forward to welcoming you all this weekend.

What’s Your Gearing?

Hello Fellow Karters,

We have not updated our recommended gearing chart on this website for some time now. This is a good source of information for any new-comers to Circuit Mark Webber. Therefore, it would be great if you could send in your class/engine/gearing combo, so that the page can be updated to reflect the current classes. We are only after gearing that will be a good starting point for a new-comer.

If you could send your gearing info to news@canberrakarts.com.au that would be great!
