Round 3 (Saturday 27th May)
Congratulations to everyone at Greater Sydney Kart Club for successfully hosting the inaugural round of the new Winter Cup featuring all Rotax Pro Tour Classes.
Last Saturday’s event was a real success with great attendance of drivers and families.
Thanks to all our volunteers and officials for organising and running the day. Thanks also to all our drivers for competitive racing and keeping it clean.

Our club was awarded $500,000 from the NSW Government for the repair and resurfacing of the Indy 800 Kart track! The grant is part of the Essential Community Sport Assets Program and works will commence in the last quarter of 2023.
We would like to thank the NSW Government and the Australian Government for financing this support and for Karting Australia, and particularly Amanda VanderWal, for their assistance with preparing the grant application.
Girls Race Too Program
Karting Australia NSW has received two grants – one for Newcastle and one for Greater Sydney – to run a Girls Race Too Program, designed for teenage females and older to go through a dedicated introduction to karting over a two-day period and a year membership with one of the clubs.
Minister for Sport Alister Henskens said the Her Sport Her Way program supports State Sporting Organisations to deliver new initiatives that turbocharge female sporting participation.
“This program is all about increasing female participation in sport, whether that’s on the field or in administration, coaching or volunteer roles,” Mr Henskens said.
We’ll provide more details on the timing of the program once our track resurfacing is completed.
Private practice is available at the Indy800 track throughout the week and can be arranged by contacting Indy800 directly on 02 4575 1265
Make the most of our Track
For those of you who are new to the Indy800 track it is different to every other track in the Sydney region. It’s technically and physically challenging for our seniors and an excellent track for our juniors to develop their skills. The tight turns help develop better racecraft than the fast flowing turns of other tracks.
The address is 446 Wilberforce Road, Wilberforce NSW 2756. Sign in and pay the practice fee at the Indy800 office.
