About The Hamilton Kart Club

Great Racing at Hamilton Karting Facility: Buckley Park

Visit the Track 11 km out the Mt. Napier Road.

The circuit is 700 meters in length, constructed of a bituminous hot mix compound with Gilsonite additive. It offers an exceptionally grippy surface in either dry or wet conditions and is considered one of the fastest (and safest) circuits in Australia. The track is licensed for 28 starters and can provide safe and spectator racing in all classes.

The circuit is eight meters wide in its entirety, with many passing opportunities, large run off areas and excellent beach pebble catch traps for the unfortunate few.

The circuit has an announcer’s box, with an elevated viewing platform for stewards, giving unrestricted views of the circuit. A powered facility is also available for the Stewards of the meeting and offers a safe, and secure environment for the conduct of driver interviews etc. A full P.A. system is in place to ensure race calls can be heard adequately no matter where you are in the facility. The lap scorer’s box on the main starting straight is air-conditioned. A fully equipped first aid room is available for emergencies. Scales shed is fully enclosed. Starting is by lights.

The pit area is large and well grassed and will easily handle 300 entrants with crews and trailers with adjacent paddocks being made available to handle unlimited number of vehicles.

Having raced at the Hamilton circuit on a number of occasions, Australian Champion, Remo Luciani, regards the circuit as an excellent venue and has “thoroughly enjoyed the racing as there is plenty of passing opportunities with good length straights and with exciting sections of the circuit which provide for great racing”.

The club has two toilet blocks, with hot showers, and allows camping at the Track. A full service canteen is available, renowned for their quality refreshments. 


Hamilton conducted both the 1996 Victorian Closed Championships and the 1998 Victorian Open Championships with great success. The Annual Hanbury Titles is an event not to miss. If you are looking for a Venue with Country hospitality – come to HAMILTON!
