Please Pre-Enter All Races Online

The AKA now offers drivers the option to pre-enter race meetings online using your user name (licence number) and password. These credentials have been sent out to you from the VKA at the time of your licence renewal. So to help our club days run smoother and faster, we need all competitors to pre-enter via the AKA website. If you decide not to race it is easier to take you off the system than it is to enter you on the day. It is important that we all get into the habit of entering online as a lot of the major events will require online entries.

The AKA CMS system allows you to enter online, as well as giving you access to a range of information including:

  • Licence renewals and upgrades
  • Your personal details (endorsements and penalties)
  • Your current licence grade (A, B C etc)
  • Races you have entered and the results of those meetings
  • Lists other drivers who have pre-entered a race meeting

As we now all have access to the AKA CMS system, and the ability to enter online and check that our details are up to date, the club and officials of OGKRC will not be responsible if your licence is not correct with the information that you think it should have. We also will not be handling any issues in relation to licence renewals or club membership on the day of racing.

Whilst we will not be solving any disputes with your licence on the day of a race meeting, we are happy to help solve any issue you may have at least 48 hours prior to a race meeting. If you think you have a problem then contact the VKA directly, or the OGKRC membership secretary, Angela Russell.

If you have any question in relation to online entries of the CMS system then please email racesecretary@ogkrc.com.au or phone after 4pm.

Look forward to seeing you at the next club day

Safe racing

April Club Day Will Be Run

After much consideration, the committee of OGKRC has decided to hold the April club day races. The club has located sufficient officials and helpers to hold the event.

Those wishing to race who are not OGKRC members will need to become OGKRC members for the day for a nominal $5 charge. This can be done at the track on race day.

This race meeting will be held on Saturday April 23. Racing will start around 2pm and will continue under lights. This will be the last race meeting under lights until next year, so come along and enjoy the experience. Hope to see you there.

Vale – Carey Stapleton

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.

Adam Bourke.

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.
