It is compulsory to have a transponder on a kart on a race day. Transponders can be bought or leased on a permanent basis from Kartsport New Zealand and the Club has some for temporary lease.
The club shop stocks hot food, drinks and confectionery. Refreshments are available after racing.
The concrete pit sites are leased by members, please check before pitting on one of these sites.
Currently all sites are leased, but if there is enough interest we are looking at concreting some more sites.
If you are interested in a site email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must be a member of Kartsport Manawatu to hold a site and retain use of it.
Concrete pads are $500 for 3 years (can also be on a shared basis). Note if you have paid recently your site is secured.
If you are using an unoccupied pit site on club day the casual fee will be $20 for the day payable with your entry.
You are welcome to stay for prize giving which starts about 30 minutes after racing finishes.
