Work has begun on the track extension at the Oakleigh Kart Racing Club in Melbourne.

“The committee has been busy clearing the site ready for our contractors to roll in on Monday morning” the club posted.

“Not only will we be extending the track but we will also be widening the back straight and start/finish straight as well as fully resurfacing the existing track.”

With construction scheduled to finish mid-December, the annual Junior Top Guns will be the ‘Grand Re-Opening’ event in 2022.


Track plans for the changes, the new extension going up into what is currently part of the pits.

“Thank you to everyone that has been involved in getting us to this point, to the Victorian Government Community Motorsports program for making this possible as well as Karting Victoria and Karting Australia for their assistance.”
