$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.

COME AND TRY DAY at Circuit Mark Webber
SATURDAY 29 April 2017 9am-5pm
$50.00pp – LIMITED places available. 2 X 5 minute sessions. Driver tips and suggestions in between.
Ever fancied yourself as a Formula One driver, or think you’ve got what it takes to be a V8 Supercar star? Or do you simply want to feel the need for speed in a safe and controlled environment? Mark Webber’s racing career started in Canberra as a junior kart driver and current Red Bull F1 driver Daniel Riccardo is also a former kart driver from WA
“Kart racing is a real family sport and it can be enjoyed by people of all ages, people can start racing when they’re seven years of age right through to when they’re older than 70” “One of the best things for the youngsters, both boys and girls, is that it teaches them about car control and driving techniques well before they are old enough to obtain their road licence.”
Come and drive a kart on Canberra’s only international racing circuit.
[We will hold driver’s briefings on the day, prior to your gear fitting and going out in a kart. You will also be asked to sign an insurance waiver form.]
