Auckland Blokart Club (ABC)

The Auckland Blokart Club has been going off! A regular turnout of 15 - 25 karters for the twilight series on Thursday nights ensured plenty of healthy competition. With a bunch of available locations, there are always people out somewhere.

The club has great aspirations for the future. Auckland Blokart Club aims to play a key part in the national and international rise of this sport.

By providing a fun, supportive, and competitive club environment, this club will unify the many existing local blokarters and encourage new people into the sport.

The Auckland Blokart Club will strengthen the sport through organised club trips and national invitation events. Mixing it up with blokarters from around the country will grow the community and raise the standard of 'karting nationally.

Internationally, Auckland is an important location for the global Blokart community. Home to a number of the best blokarters in the world, the ABC is a focal point attracting many international visitors. With our local beaches, Auckland will become a key location in the world competition. A dedicated blokart site will strengthen this objective.

Club Objectives:

To promote the sport and recreation activity of 'karting in the community.
To promote family orientated fun through social and competitive activities.
To promote interaction between other blokarters and blokart clubs
To establish safe and friendly environments for Blokarts.
To be a friendly club that encourages membership and participation among all blokarters.

Where and When do we meet?

In the months that do not have their evenings extended by daylight savings, we meet every second Sunday at Ardmore Airport. These gatherings are posted on BUGS, so check it out for the next gathering.

During the summer months the Auckland blokart Club meets twice a week - Thursday nights for some organised racing and again for a casual gathering on Sunday afternoons. Both of these events take place at Bruce Pulman Park.

Keep your eye on BUGS for organised beach races. There is nothing like racing along kilometers of sand. The day and the beach will depend on the weather conditions - Karioitahi, Muriwai and Omaha are our key locations.

Membership Details

A single member can join up for $60 per year, and a family subscription covers the whole family for $110.

With the end of daylight savings, the racing that was the Twilight Series has come to an end. This event was operating on a casual basis. It cost $5 per night or $15 for all races. This fee included a hearty feed off the cooker of Marg and Russel.

Blokart Racing Code:

1. Have fun!

2. You must wear suitable footwear and head protection. (We do this in order to meet the requirements of the Blokart association's insurance cover.)

3. If you are approaching another Blokart coming from the opposite direction, you must keep to the right.

4. If two Blokarters are approaching each other from the same direction but on opposite tacks, then the right hand (starboard) tack blokart has right of way i.e. the left hand (port) tack blokart must give way. Don't worry if this makes no sense to you as you read it. It can be easily explained in person by one of the club members.
