On the 13th of March 2011, a past member of the Oakleigh Go Kart Racing Club, Carey Stapleton passed away.
Carey raced with myself and a few of the senior members that are still at the club. He raced in Clubman Heavy, then moved to Rotax Over 40 at the Go-Kart Club Of Victoria. He was a fierce competitor that made racing him a challenge, and when you finished in front of him you knew you had earned it.
On a personal note I would like to say that he will be missed by us that knew him well.
Rest in peace Carey.
The committee and members from the Oakleigh Go Kart Racing Club wish to pass on our most sincere condolences to Carey’s family and friends on this most solemn occasion, and will always remember him as a fellow member of our club.
