Announcements & Changes
2018 City Of Adelaide Titles
Pro Karts Pooraka will be supporting the 2018 City Of Adelaide Titles meeting this weekend! They will be sponsoring the meetings ‘Feature Class’ as well as prizes for podium places in other classes but that will depend on the number of classes and entrants, so get entered!!!
The race meeting has been reduced to a one day meeting (racing Sunday) and the format to be adjusted depending on entries and classes. The entry fee has been reduced to $70 and for those competitors that have already paid, you will receive a refund of $30. The track will be open on Saturday for unofficial practice but this is only for competitors who are entered in the race meeting on Sunday.
There will be NO security provided over the weekend. Camping is still available for people who wish to do so. To arrange camping please contact Brett or Warren as soon as possible.
Entries will be accepted on the day and a quick reminder to all ‘P’ platers that you are eligible to enter. This also applies to ‘E’ grade (practice) license holders who are eligible to have their one (1) permitted race meeting per year. Great opportunity to get out there and experience the thrill of racing.
We want to see as many racer’s out there as possible. Every entry counts and goes a long way to supporting the Southern Go Kart Club.
Motards are back baby!!!
Come check out these two wheeled beasts get around South Australias best drivers track on Sunday 11th of November.
Free entry for spectators.
