Newcastle Kart Racing Club

NKRC Brochure Click on link for full story.



The Newcastle Kart Racing Club as such was formed in 1963, running under the control of the Australian Karting Association (AKA) which was affiliated with CAMS.

After having tracks at Windale, Raymond Terrace and Branxton a new location was found at Cameron Park (current location, formerly Estelville). The original track at Cameron Park was dirt up until 1969.

In 1996 the club purchased the land from BHP. After securing this permanent location, the club used the funds it had been saving over many years to embark on an ambitious construction program.

In late 1998 the race circuit you see today was completed. Construction and improvements of the amenities and structures is an ongoing program with members volunteering many hours of their own time.

Since the completion of the new race circuit in 1998 the club has hosted some very large championship meetings;
