Newcastle Kart Racing Club


Dear NKRC Members and racers,
Please find the below update on our track refurbishment works.
It is important that everyone understands that this work is a refurbishment and not a full re surface at this stage,
During the required repairs we have encountered some horrific weather with the rain not giving the repair team a break over the past few weeks.
Hence the track has had to be closed for a lot longer than first expected.
Whilst carrying out the repairs we have encountered some poor sub base under the existing tarmac.
The poor sub base has created some massive challenges, Our initial repairs actually created a few new bumps in key areas which was not the plan.
At present the track is still closed as we are carrying our further repairs to eliminate the bumps in the key areas.
These repairs are very weather dependant and we are planning to have these completed over the next couple of weeks.
We will have Hire Karts operating from time to time over the next couple of weeks which will allow us to monitor the repairs.
The NKRC board invite all club members to attend an open meeting on Sunday 21st March at 9.30am under the canteen area to discuss all of the above and answer any questions you may have.
It would be great if you could hang around for a couple of hours to help the board with a few jobs around the track.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday morning
NKRC Board
