Where do the Christchurch Grass Kart Club host meetings?
Our home track is located on Weedons Ross Road, West Melton—opposite the West Melton Air Field and next to Moore Park Speedway.

During certain months, we schedule 'relief periods' for maintenance on our home grounds, during which we race at alternative locations. These updates will be posted on our website and social channels.
How often does the club host race meets?
The Christchurch Grass Kart Club holds meetings on the first Sunday of each month (except January). Occasionally we will move the months race date to suit track conditions and or availability. We race all year round, taking a break in January to enjoy the New Year holiday! Occasionally, we host Speedway meets, so be sure to check our upcoming events.
Where can I buy a grass kart & how much does it cost?
There's no specific store to purchase a kart from, but you can find plenty of options on Trade Me or through the Grass Kart Buy Sell page on Facebook. Click here to find out more:

How much does it cost to race?
This one is a bit more complex to answer as it depends on your preferred setup. Do you want a late model big bore motor (like a 2022 CRF450R), or would you like a crate style motor such as a Lifan or Shineray? This choice will significantly impact your budget.

Typically, a senior kart ranges from $3,500 to $10,000, while a midget/junior kart can be found for $2,000 to $5,000.

Often, someone within the club (or one of the other South Island clubs) has a kart for sale, so reach out and see what's available! It’s usually easier to purchase a well-setup kart rather than starting from scratch.
Is it free for spectators to watch the racing?
Absolutely! Bring the kids along and enjoy a day filled with exciting racing!
