GSKC Club Newsletter #11 September 2023
Round 5 (Saturday 9th September)
Come race at your local Sydney metro track
I’d like to extend an invitation to all drivers to attend our meeting this Saturday 9th September.
There will be practice sessions from 9.00am to 12.00pm and Qualifying will commence at 12.30pm. Racing will continue into the evening with the Finals running under lights.
This is our final round before the track is re-asphalted, so make the most of the opportunity.
We are in need of volunteers to help out on our next club day on 9th September 2023
We need 2 volunteers to work on the BBQ: one person at 9-12pm then another at 12-3pm. More hands make life easier.
If you cannot help out, please get a family member or friend to volunteer on your behalf.
Volunteering is a necessary part of entering the Club Championships and Qualification and bonus points are up for grabs, so don’t miss out.
Please email Di at [email protected] if you can assist.
We will be running a Bring-a-Mate session so you can introduce friends and family to karting in a friendly club environment. Contact Josh at [email protected] for more details.
Track Upgrade begins on October 16th!
This will be our last meeting before the Indy 800 race track upgrade.
The scope of works for the upgrade encompasses a comprehensive survey of the existing track surface and milling to reduce the track unevenness, replacing the track surface and kerbs to meet modern racing standards, including upgrading the lighting systems, if the budget should extend that far.
The Indy 800 race track upgrade aims to elevate the racing experience, attract top-tier events, and solidify its position as a racing venue.
The upgrade will commence after our next race meeting and continue through October and November.
