The closely knit karting community is in mourning following the passing on Sunday of popular Victorian racer Aaron Ivermee. The 30-year old succumbed to Melanoma.

Friends took to social media to express their loss, plus send best wishes to the Ivermee family, father Norm, mother Willie and sister Janelle.

Along with his father Norm, a former state champion, Aaron had been a regular face at the Geelong Kart Club since he was seven. At 12, he decided to follow in his father's wheel tracks and start racing himself.
