Abbreviated Key/Track Rules
Non-Club Day Practice
You may not drive a kart without another person present. This other person must be capable of obtaining or giving assistance in the event of an accident. Would also be handy if they had a cellphone available in case of an emergency.
Practice sessions are for a maximum of 15 minutes if another kart is waiting. Separate sessions are required for Cadets, Junior Restricted, Juniors, and Seniors, i.e. only karts from one of these classes may be on the track at any one time.
Protective clothing and an approved helmet, as per the KartSport NZ Licence book, must be used during any practice session.
The track is available to members on any non-Club day unless otherwise advised via email. Please restrict your usage to between 9.00am and 5.00pm.
When you open the gate you must lock it again when you have entered. This ensures that non-club members do not enter without your knowledge and provide a possible conflict with OSH requirements.
You may practice only between 9am and 5pm. Practice outside these hours may result in your being expelled from the Club and will certainly create problems with the Clubs neighbours.
You are responsible for making sure that the track is secure when you leave. If you found (or created) any damage to the track or buildings, please ring the President or Secretary as soon as possible. The Club carries comprehensive insurance. Keys are of restricted form and cannot be duplicated without permission of the Club Executive.
Kartsport New Zealand Practice Requirements
Kartsport Wellington will only issue keys to the track to those members who hold a current Kartsport New Zealand Racing Licence or Kartsport New Zealand Practice Licence. You must hold a current one of these Licences at anytime you practice.
Non-Member use of WKC Track and facilities
If you are a full driving member you may bring a prospective driver for trial laps. Before driving, this person must sign an indemnity form (available on noticeboard at end of Kartport 9) and you must forward the form to the Secretary as soon as possible or put in the mailbox by the tech shed. The person must wear full protective equipment as required by KartSport NZ rules.
A membership application must be made if any further practice sessions are considered. Forms are available from the Secretary or clubrooms.
Please ensure that no unauthorised person uses your facilities and protect your clubs facilities against damage by making sure that everything is secure before you leave.
