January 2012 From The President

February 2012 Club Day information from club president Adam Bourke.

Hi to all members,
First of all I would like to thank all those members that helped at Top Guns. They made the meeting run smoothly and the 2 nights were a success. We will make it bigger and better next year.

On to club day. Our first club day of 2012 will be a day night meeting on the 25th of February 2012. Racing will start at around 2pm. Entries will be taken on the day but it is preferred if you enter via the CMS system.

The classes for this year are the usual but we have introduced a new senior class, open performance. This is a class where you can use any motor and you will be able to run on a high performance tyre. We are looking at making this tyre MG yellow.

We will still offer Sportsman. The 2 classes will be looked at for entries over three months and the stronger class will survive.

At this stage we will offer both light and heavy, but will also depend on numbers. We may go a mid-weight (pro) or we may run the two classes on the track together.

If you have any opinions on this or other suggestions our first General meeting is February the 14th at 7-30pm at the OGKRC Clubroom, look forward to seeing you all there.

Also to those who have put their hand up for the stewards or technical course we really appreciate it.

Our next major meeting is All-Stars in March/April. Watch the web site for more info.

Till next time

Yours in karting
Adam Bourke
President OGKRC

  1. SORRY TO SOUND NEGATIVE,BUT WHY ARE WE LOOKING AT RUNNING ANOTHER CLASS WHEN WE ALREADY HAVE TROUBLE MAKING NUMBERS IN SPORTSMAN ???

    GREG SMART

  2. The reason we are introducing this class is so the higher performance motors can race on the tyres they are made for. This has been asked over a while since the intro of sportsman. It is an experiment and if it does not work then it will be folded and we will stick only with sportsman

  3. Do the engines still have to comply with the current aka rules? or can we modify engines such as the Yamaha ‘s’? And license will have to be ‘b’ grade is this correct?

    • Caleb,
      Yes, the engines do still have rules that need to be complied with. The rule book contains all rules for this class. 😉
