Haha... I'm married you just need to lay down the rules ...

Racing comes first ;)

Or the alternative is what Johnny West does in the US.

Whatever he spends on his kart racing he has to spend on his wife :o!

I like that idea a lot ;D.

Trace,
Did Johnny tell you he has to spend the equal amount on his wife in diamonds?
Maybe if we meet her in August you will get the drift how much Johnny spends on his karts......or ask Stocky next time :o

Doesn't work with me love....so don't start getting any ideas. :D

We can get on but we need a minimum of 8. Full day $120.00 and $80.00 a half day. Don't get 8 you all get sent home. We need to make sure we have the numbers before we book in. Gates open 7.30am. Ontrack 9.30 - 4pm. Pay on the day and fill in the forms at the track on the morning of the event.

Does not matter if we fall short by a couple guys, we can just pay a little extra to cover for it, like $20 or there abouts.

When I planned this day I was going by myself and had arranged to book out my own session for the whole day..

We have 7 so far and I'm sure there will be another 2 or 3 no worries ...

Get organized guys, it's going to be a ripper day !!!

I think Laker could be a posibility if his engine arrives in time.

Anyone else ???

Hey guys.. from a super-newby point of view what is needed to turn up to practice days at Lakeside. I have an old 85 cc webmaster ( was Cams approved in 08 ) and basically just want to do some laps, see how I go etc. I have not joined any clubs as yet, nor held any racing licenses, in fact I haven't even bought any safety gear as yet.! :-[ I know Morgan park needs a Cams license and kart to practice, but I haven't heard anything about Lakeside.

Any help would be appreciated .. Ozylink.

Ozy: I'm sure someone from Qld will answer but it depends if the days are run under AASA or CAMS. If they're run under AASA it will be easy as pie, you can just rock up on the day and pay for a license (Around $120 if i remember correctly?). If it's CAMS you have to go through their license process, which means you'll have to do a medical with a doctor then do a online test before they issue you a license. CAMS also costs more. (around $400).

Hi Ozzy,
mate all you need to do is turn up, sign the relevent forms and pay the fees applicable ($120 for practice and $60 for a 1 event licence) and just do it. If you have anymore questions feel free to ring me on 0417769336 or email zahl2009@tpg.com.au and I will gladly help you out where ever I can.

Hi Ozylink,

Give Ash a call mate and he can answer any questions you may have, he is the president of the QLD webmaster Club.

You will need a full face helmet, cordura karting suit, gloves and boots.

Apart from filling out your AASA License forms and entry on the morning of the practice day you will be ready to rock n roll mate.

If I can reccommend anything it would be that you give your kart a good once over prior to practice day ie general spanner check, start the kart on a stand and check for water/fuel leaks etc

We will get approx 6 sessions for the day so we all try to make our karts as clean and reliable as possible to avoid any loss of track time.

Will be great to meet you and there will be plenty of knowledgeable guys there to help and answer any of your Q's ...

Cheers,
Ant

Thanks for all your help guys..sounds like excellent news to me. I am just checking out some safety gear now, and will certainly be giving the kart a thorough going over beforehand. I will ring Ash as well to make sure I have it all in order, but at this stage count me in !

Thanks again Ozylink

It's clear to me, Dougie is looking down on his nose cone thinking "now that is a good polish job".

Hopefully everyone in Qld rocks up. Looking forward to having another crack at the lap record.
Love the photo dougie.

Cheers Ant, they sent Wayne the wrong ignition for the engine so we just have to wait for the correct one now. Should be good to go on the weekend for Morgan Park though.

Hi Jason,

Plenty of time to make the lakeside test. You should put it in with Ants other, no another one of Ants Karts thats coming over ;) ;D. That would save you both on half of the extra bullsh*% hidden unquoted fees that AQIS and customs charge. See below and thats minus GST and DUTY as this kart came in on a 12 month CARNET.

Description Foreign Currency AU GST AUD TOTAL AUD
Origin Customs Fees NZD 19.25 16.65 0.00 16.65
Carnet Fee NZD 150.00 129.74 0.00 129.74
Origin Inland Freight NZD 95.38 82.49 0.00 82.49
Origin Charges 228.88 0.00 [u]228.88[/u]

AirFreight Documentation Fee NZD 12.50 10.81 0.00 10.81
AirFreight Documentation Fee NZD 40.00 34.60 0.00 34.60
International Freight NZD 625.40 540.91 0.00 540.91
Security Fee NZD 6.00 5.19 0.00 5.19

Destination Handling Charges 77.00 7.70 84.70
Destination Charges 546.67 40.17 [u]586.84[/u]

Customs Clearance Fee 160.00 16.00 176.00
Quarantine Assessment Fee 31.00 3.10 34.10

Total, $1600 plus AU for AIR Frieght. It took 11 days from pickup in Wellington to Depot Melbourne for me to pick up.


As you can see. Welcome to Australia, bend over please!!!!!!!!

Whats in bold was quoted and is Kiwi dollars, the rest is after it arrived and remember I asked for an ALL UP NO UNFORSEEN CHARGES EXCEPT FOR A QUARANTINE BASED STEAM CLEAN Quote!!!!!!

The quarantine assesment fee is to decide wether or not to cut the tape on the top of the box
The quarantine fee is to cut the tape on the box and leave it open if they choose.
Sending a Kart to NZ is a Door to door under 72 hours and is right on the Quoted price.
The Carnet fee is to read a one page document and stamp/sign it.

Recently I organised the same sized shipment be SEA to Australia but without a carnet so GST and DUTY on a $2500AU value shipment, The quoted price with gst and Duty was $1150 and 8 days door to door. It took almost 4 weeks and cost $1970 AU .

This was with a high profile AU/NZ freight company.

Good luck chaps, Its hard to beat DHL prices and thats who ill use from now on.

Hi Jason, If you want my advise. Book 2 return airfares on Quantas to Wellington.

Now a billet engine is around 36kg plus pipes and carbs. Take both barrels and pistons off the rods, Take the gearbox internals out, give your mate the pipes, mufflers, ignition, g/box, carbs for his suitcase and you put the engine in your suitcase. When they ask at checkin what it is, say its a collectable sewing machine.

The result is the cheapest airfrieght/ 2 movies/ meals and 23 hours door back to door.


;D ;D ;D :D :D :D
