Started in 1960, the Southern Go Kart Club has grown from a simple dirt circuit then to now being 782 metres of bitumen with a circuit capacity of 32 karts. There are both short and long circuit configurations and can be run in an anti-clockwise and clockwise direction. A maximum lateral G-Force of 3.2G is pulled.
The Pit Area is big enough to cater for over 300, including a trailer, and there’s enough room for trade spaces (by prior arrangement) at major race meetings. The In-Grid and Out-Grid are both under cover and there is grandstand seating in the pit area and along the main straight.
The club runs multiple race meetings every year with an internal Club Championship being made up of those meetings. For the SGKC Club Championship structure and rules, please visit the ‘Calendar’ page.
The electronic main gate allows for easy entry and exit, with a swipe card supplied to each member upon commencement of their membership. There are toilet facilities both in the pit area as well as behind the main straight, next to the clubroom. For country and interstate drivers, on site camping is available but prior arrangement is required.
Our clubroom is licensed, with hot food and sandwiches served all day (a BIG thanks to the people who volunteer) for spectators and racers a like. Whether it be the summer months or winter months, our air-conditioned club rooms are a great place to view the entire circuit and take in all of the great racing action.
