Southern Go Kart Club Track

Attention Members – Warning

*Attention Members*

With the warmer weather upon us our favourite no legged friends are out and about. Yep, you guessed it, snakes!

Much like yourselves snakes enjoy our track and word on the street is there is a red belly black snake that whips a lap quicker than a TaG Light!

In all seriousness, please be aware that they are active and if you see one at the track do not touch them and please don’t attempt to kill it! It is illegal to kill snakes and should always be left to the professionals!

Luckily for Southern Go Kart Club we have our very own professional, the handsome and charming Warren Mitchell

So if you do come across a snake anywhere at the track please contact Warren on 0432 588 471 as soon as possible.
