The green flag will fall on the Mildura Kart Club racing season tomorrow.
The club has about 35 members, all of who are excited to be back on track for the group’s first competition day.
Gary Rogers, who re-found his passion for the sport after moving from New Zealand to Mildura, has been a part of the Mildura Kart Club for a year.
He said kart racing is one motorsport you can do by yourself, with no crew required.
Rogers also said it is an affordable form of motorsport, with both karts, maintenance and parts a lot cheaper than other types of racing.
Fellow racer Josh Morgan competes in the same division as Rogers – TAG Restricted Medium.
Morgan has been racing for four months and said the affordability of the sport was a major drawcard for him.
Bucking the trend seen in many sports post COVID, competitor numbers for karting have been growing locally.
Events – competition and practice days – are scheduled once a month until November.

Gates for the meeting tomorrow open at 9am, with practice from 11am and racing from 1pm. Entry is free to the public.
