‘Bring a mate’ day a success at Wimmera Kart Racing Club

Wimmera Kart Racing Club members enjoyed a few laps around the Dooen track at a ‘bring a mate’ session on Saturday. 

Club karting activity controller Anthony Taylor said the day, designed to generate interest in the sport in the region, went well.

“We’re running the ‘bring a mate’ session so people who are friends of karters can come out and get the experience of driving on the track, to see whether they like it or not,” he said.

“Hopefully we end up with some new members out of it.

“We had two in this morning and another three this afternoon, so it’s been good.”

Mr Taylor said he was pleased COVID-19 restrictions
had eased to allow for adult sport training and practice.

“We’re running under fairly strict Karting Australia guidelines, which are linked to the Victorian government COVID directions,” he said.

Wimmera Kart Racing Club is due to host round four of the DPE Victorian Country Series on July 17 and 18.
