South West Kart Club Inc was formed in 1992 after a group of interested people decided to call a public meeting.  In seven short years the Club has seen many changes, the biggest being the hot-mix sealing of a 966metre long x 8metre wide go-kart racing track. and the building of other amenities which makes the running of the club a lot easier.

The Club meets regularly for committee meetings on the Monday before the second Thursday of every month in the Clubrooms at the track.  Every members input into these meetings is welcomed and encouraged, or alternatively, you can  contact any committee member to discuss any issues or concerns that you may have.

The Club  currently has a steady membership base of  50 families and 40 singles. There are many types of memberships available - one for every need.  Every member receives a copy of the Club’s monthly newsletter.  This keeps all members informed of meeting details, race dates and results, social events and fund-raisers, advertisements etc.

Racing members are able to compete against each other at organized Club Race Days which are held on the last Sunday of every month (except December).  At these meetings similar weight  members race against  each other accumulating points to try to win trophies. which are presented at the conclusion of the day, these points are tallied up at the end of the year and the highest point scorer is awarded the title of overall club champion

The Club, through the State run Victorian Karting Association, (VKA), is allocated up to three Open Race Meetings per year.  This gives Club members a chance to compete with karters from throughout Victoria on their home track.  Of course the states other Clubs run these Open meetings as well, giving South West members a chance to race on other tracks. Karters at these Open meetings race against each other, accumulating points to try to win trophies and prizes.
