Newcastle Kart Racing Club was formed in 1959, and has occupied it’s current site for over 30 years. It is very conveniently located only 300 metres from the F3 Freeway (part of the National Highway from Sydney to Brisbane.) We are only 1 1/2 hours from Sydney.
In 1998, a completely new, WORLD CLASS track and facilities were built….
This cost in excess of $1 million. This exciting and demanding track is 1058 metres long, and 8 metres wide. It’s very undulating, with 6 crests and 8.5 metre fall from the highest to the lowest point on the circuit.
It has 2 straights: the main one being 160 metres long, the back straight is 96 metres long. It has a dual 40 kart starting grid, allowing for 80 karts to assemble at once. It also features a dedicated breakdown lane.
There is a three storey air conditioned control tower, operating the start/finish lights, and overhead lap counter.
