New to Karting

STEP 1 – JOINING THE YARRA VALLEY SPEEDWAY KART CLUB

Joining the YVSKC club will give you access to club practice days, as well as allowing you to participate in any club championship and social events. Please contact the club for further details.

STEP 2 – GETTING A SPEEDWAY AUSTRALIA LICENCE

Once you are a member of the Yarra Valley Speedway Kart Club you will require a Speedway Australia licence to compete. The license comes with a Speedway Australia Rule Book, which outlines all the rules and regulations. A Speedway Australia License also covers  the driver for insurance while racing. More information can be found at http://www.speedwayaustralia.net.au or by contacting a member of the YVSKC comittee- click here for details

STEP 3 – GETTING A KART

This would have to be the fun part but to help you and to ensure you are purchasing the correct equipment it is advised that you contact the YVSKC as Speedway Karting is somewhat different from Bitumen Karting.

STEP 4 – GET YOUR SAFETY GEAR

Most kart shops will also offer a range of safety gear – that is, full face helmets, race suits, racing boots, gloves, neck braces and other optional safety gear such as padded rib vests. As well as kart shops, motor sport race gear shops carry ranges of karting gear and even motorcycle shops can be good for things like helmets and wet weather driving gear.
