Working Bee

There will be a working bee this Saturday to prepare for the Twilight Thunder meeting, so if you have a lawnmower and/or whipper snipper we would love to see you at the track from 8:30am!

Members - New Access Arrangements

E-mail Print PDF
The Launceston Kart Club is in the process of updating membership records, including the installation of our automated entry gate which will be operated by mobile phone.
We would appreciate if you could please email the club secretary ( as soon as possible with the following details for each member:
  • member (and guardian for juniors) name(s), 
  • preferred email address, and 
  • mobile phone numbers.
Please note that the new automated gate will be operational from some time in mid to late January, so all member mobile numbers will need to be authorised by this time to ensure ongoing access to the track. If your mobile phone has poor or no coverage at Turners Marsh, now would be a very good time to check in with Santa about getting a phone that works at the circuit!


From The Launceston Kart Club President

E-mail Print PDF
Firstly, I would like to thank all competitors and their families for providing spectacular racing throughout the year.
The Launceston Kart Club and its members would like to recognise and thank the following people for their commitment for their many years of service as committee members and loyal members of the club:
  • Mark Mitchell for his commitment as President.
  • Pam Stone for 20 years as Race secretary and committee member.
  • Christine Wyatt for 35 years of support in all aspects of the club.
  • Stuart Alcock for his time as secretary.
Our congratulations must also go to our 2015 award winners:
  • 2015 Drivers of the Year: Jackson Callow (Junior), Troy Stone (Seniors), Johnathan Males (Over 40s)
  • Consistency: Tyson Phegan (Cadets), Mitchell Kerrison (Juniors), Kayd Donnelly (Seniors), Garry Lee (Over 40’s)
  • Presidents Awards:  Jake Delphin (Cadets), Andrew Lee (Juniors), Alastair Lee (Seniors), Shane Toon (Over 40’s)
  • 2015 Club Person of the Year: Connor Griffin (Junior), Stuart & Sharon Lee (Senior)
Congratulations to all competitors on their achievements through the year. Tasmania has endorsed the new pathway engines with many competitors running them, and in 2016 we should see some exciting racing with a revised calendar to freshen up the race season. We as a club are mindful of the cost to race, and you will see that we will adopt a 1 day race format to freshen up LKC meetings. 
Our facilities have really progressed in 2015, and we have invested time and money for the benefit of all members. We now ask that all members adopt the rules of the facility, as the committee will have some new/revised information on the club’s expectations of members. These are basic rules which need to be adhered to. Keep an eye out for updates.
Thank you to all our great sponsors and volunteers that continue to support our club; without these people and businesses our costs would stand in the way of our improvements. To Hadspen Excavations, Will Dig, Gradco, Frost Civil Contracting, Heritage Isle Credit Union, Crossroads Civil Contracting, ToxFree Waste Management, Launceston Kart Supplies, Tazzie Kart & Parts, Launceston Motor Group, Direct Access & Equipment, GLB Constructions, Jason Conroy Painting Services, RACT, BOC, and Giraffe Excavations – our most sincere thanks.
The festive season is here, and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and a restful break leading up to the 2016 season. 
Please remember the track will change direction next year and we will have a sign to indicate the track direction.

Jason Love 
President, Launceston Kart Club

Electrical Work this Weekend

E-mail Print PDF

Heading out to the track for some practice this week or weekend? Please be aware that we are doing some electrical upgrades and will need the area between the tower and the canteen kept clear.

Please keep this area completely clear by parking vehicles and karts in the pit area behind the scales shed while works are under way, for your safety and the safety of those working with cables.

Many thanks.
