Standard Supplementary Rules for Whangarei.

 

The Engine Warm Up Area must be used to run engines in. They can not be run up in the Pits Area, car park or any other place other than on the track.

 

Starter Motors must not be left lying on the ground around or on the Dummy Grid. They must be stored beside the Pit Marshal's Shelter when not in use.

Effective from 1st January 2015 any person that drives a race kart on the track must have either a Competition Licence, Vintage Kart Licence or a Practice Licence issued by KartSport New Zealand, unless there is an organised Have A Go Event.

 

On non race days the track is available for use from 10 o'clock in the morning to members that have paid their Annual Membership Fee, (except Christmas Day and New Year's Day plus one full week after a Race Day).

All other persons that go with you to the track to drive a race kart must have a current Competition Licence, Vintage Kart Licence or a Practice Licence and need to pay $10 each time they go there.

 

IMPORTANT. They must sign the indemnity Form that is kept in the stainless steel cupboard on the side of the Club House and deposit the $10 in the slot beside it.

 

 

The Club's long standing safety rules for using the track for practice & testing are: (Updated on 16th December 2011)
