A new kart club has been formed and affiliated with Karting NSW to use the Cameron Park race track in Newcastle, which is home to the Karting Australia affiliated Newcastle Kart Racing Club.
The Hunter Valley Kart Club is now a thing and will be hosting events at Newcastle in 2022. This means the venue will conduct racing for both KA and KNSW licence holders.
The club’s launch press release is below.
Hunter Valley Kart Club Launched!
Exciting news for everyone who loves racing at the Cameron Park NKRC racetrack. Hunter Valley Kart Club Inc (HVKC) has been incorporated and affiliated with KNSW and will be able to run KNSW sanctioned events at the NKRC venue in 2022 and beyond.
We would like to thank the Board of NKRC for offering to rent the track to HVKC and also KNSW for accepting our affiliation to make this possible. This will facilitate racing under the two sanctioning bodies for those that would like to race under either KA or KNSW at their favourite track. Like All KNSW licence holders HVKC members will have the ability to race throughout NSW with one club membership and licence. Existing KNSW licence holders will also have another track to race at!
For 2022 we will be launching with a 4 round club championship with dates to be advised when calendars are finalized. We are already working hard to ensure these meetings will be great events. Shortly, we will announce details on sponsors and prizes for our 2022 club championship winners. We look forward to making 2022 a massive first year for HVKC!
A special introductory membership price of $30 will be offered to all new members. In order to lower the financial burden for those in the Newcastle/Hunter Valley area that want to race both KA and KNSW anyone who holds a NKRC membership that is either current or expired any time after 1st January 2020 who purchases a HVKC membership prior to 31st December 2021 will receive a voucher that entitles them to buy a set of KNSW Maxxis Kart tyres for $199 at local Kart shops Precision Motorsport, Trackside Motorsport or The Kartworks.

We can’t wait for you all to race with us in 2022!
