Done & (lots of) Dusted, CCSKC Round 1

from Melissa Garland

Central Coast Speedway Kart Club, Round 1

The first speedway go karting event for 2019 is complete, and it was also the first speedway go karting event under the Karting NSW banner.

A huge thank you to our dedicated CCSKC Committee for their involvement in setup, training and use of all the new Karting NSW systems.

Rookies form up for a race start

Thanks to all our Volunteers and Officials on the day, behind the scenes, in the canteen and on the track.

We started and finished a little later than normal with the new systems being put in place. It was a hot one, and the track dried out quickly resulting in constant laps by the water truck!

The water truck got a work out!

Even though we had some challenges with the new systems, we delivered what we scheduled with some extra laps thrown in! These challenges were expected given it was the first Speedway event, but we had some great support from Karting NSW and Computime.

The majority of karters, family and community enjoyed starting this year’s racing with increased numbers, and the reduced costs, our improved rules and simplified paperwork were all well received.

See you all at Round 2 of the CCSKC Club Championship on Sunday, 17th March.
