August 29 2015 Club Day Day Races

August Club Day saw us revert to the Saturday day / night format so a lazy late morning arrival for most as we got ready for qualifying and then racing. Weather was bitterly cold and rain looked like it might threaten – more of what Melbourne had been turning on for the last few weeks.

Photography this month is supplied courtesy of our usual photographer Andrew Daley of AKD Photography and Jeff’s Digital Photography – our thanks to both of them. If you want a shot of yourself or your pilot, contact Andrew at or Jeff on 0449 772 694 or find him on Facebook.

July 27 2015 Club Day Day Races

July Club Day – the very words strike a chill into the bones of Victorian karters and Oakleigh’s July Club Day looked like giving karters reason to shiver. Overnight it poured with rain and as the alarm got me out of bed it was cold, wet and windy. Nevertheless a number of hardy souls turned up to brave the elements and by the time carby session began it was at least sunny and the track was being dried by an Antarctic gale.

Our Club Day also had an international flavour this month as former members Sean, Tara and Nicholas Sims dropped in while on holidays from their new home in Austin Texas. Good to see former racers and helpers around the club come back to say Howdy. Once qualifying was completed we got going with racing.

There will be a Working Bee this Saturday between 9 am and 12 pm. The track will be closed during this time.

Please come along and help out, as they say “many hands make light work”.

If you can, please bring along lawn mowers, whipper snippers, shovels, rakes, muscles, gloves etc.

Don’t forget to put your name in the Working Bee book to receive a free Entry Fee at an Oakleigh Club Day.

Hope to see you there.
