Karting Victoria Covid update: 20th August 2021
In light of the escalating COVID issues facing all States, combined with the prevailing border restrictions, it has become necessary to make a decision on the calendar for the remainder of the 2021 year. There have been some significant meetings removed to be able to achieve a fair and equitable outcome for all clubs
The clubs impacted by the cancellation of meetings have been involved in discussions about that decision. To a fault these clubs have been generous in their support for the clubs who have not had the opportunity to hold an open meeting in 2020 and so far in 2021. The focus of VKA has been to ensure that all clubs are able to run an open meeting this year.
The VKA Executive extends thanks in particular to the Go Kart Club of Victoria and the Albury Wodonga Kart Club for their generosity, understanding, and their support of those clubs.
We truly hope this is the last revision that is required, but this virus can throw a curve ball with no notice. Therefore, VKA reserves the right to update the calendar if circumstances demand it.
The revised calendar is attached for your attention and will be published to the VKA website in due course.
Yours in karting,
VICTORIAN KARTING ASSOCIATION INC.

On behalf of the Wimmera Kart Racing Club it is with great disappointment that we have to announce that round 4 of the VCS at Horsham on September 4th & 5th has been postponed yet again due to Covid restrictions and we are unable to proceed with this date.
The rescheduled date for this event is now October 2nd and 3rd.
The Hamilton VCS round 5 that was originally scheduled for October 2nd and 3rd has now been moved to October 23rd and 24th.
Wimmera Kart Racing Club has been working closely with Karting Victoria and have made this decision collectively that it is unfair to our South Australian fellow competitors with restrictions to enter Victoria and for our Tasmanian friends and of course all our Melbourne competitors restricted with their movements that the only right thing to do is to call it early so competitors may cancel their accommodation and make other arrangements for that weekend.
On behalf of the Wimmera Kart Racing Club and Karting Victoria, STAY SAFE
