It is coming up to that time of the year again.

Lock away some time on the 3rd December in your diary for our Club Christmas party/Car Show and Awards Day being held at Harrigans Drift Inn at Calypso Bay (near Jacobs Well).

We are parking on the peninsula with the beautiful water and marina as the backdrop to what will be an enjoyable day.

Gates will be open between 10.00am and 11.00am to allow us access to the peninsula and there will be no access out of this timeframe. Harrigans rules not ours!

Awards will be:

Karting Time - Game Over

NEW STATE OF THE ART ELECTRIC KARTS!

Game Over is home to the Grand Prix Indoor karting track; it’s the first of its kind in Australia.

At Game Over we pride ourselves on being huge fans of the electric go kart! Our electric go karts have several clear advantages over its gas-powered rivals, including a low environmental impact, absence of exhaust fumes, and superior performance. With a 20hp DC electric motor that produces far more torque than other kart engines, our electric karts have superb acceleration out of tight corners; while a gas engine can get bogged down, our electric motors are capable of delivering maximum torque instantaneously. And unlike a gas-powered kart, an electric go kart can be programmed to a variety of pre-set speeds to accommodate guests of varying skill levels, including beginner, intermediate and advanced.

With 22 Adult and 12 Junior go karts there is plenty of fun to be had for the whole family.

The Club will be hosting a Karting day out at Game Over Gold Coast on the 27th August.

We will be completing 3 Session which is $99. There will be a group that will be running in the Shifter Karts, but they are extra :)
