As part of the on going improvements we are wanting to do at Kartsport Wellington and as we lead up to the CIK Trophy of NZ in January, there are some quite large improvements about to be undertaken at the track..
The start of these major improvements will be the demolishing of Kartports 1 - 9. These Kartports are being demolished so we can create a new and larger dummy grid that will extend into the new retaining wall behind the current Kartports. As this is happening we will be building a replacement nine new Kartports on the edge of the current dummy grid. These new Kartports will be the same size as the current Kartports and will face towards the tech shed. Current Kartport lease holders will of course be assigned the same Kartport number in the new block.
The other major task is the creation of a break down and service lane along the small straight in front of the pits, this lane will help with events like CIK and our Enduro meeting. Part of this work involves removal of the fence between the track and pits and erecting a new pipe and mesh fence that will give a better view out onto the track.
This work is planned to start Monday 16 August ( after Sundays Enduro Clubday ) and should take about two weeks. The track will be closed at this stage for any practice from Monday 16 August through to Monday 30 August.
During this closure we will be having two working bees, on Sunday 22 August and Sunday 29 August. We need you at these working bees to keep to the two week closure, if we dont get enough help at the working bees we will have to keep the track closed for longer. Please mark these dates in your diaries NOW.
This is great exciting stuff for us as a club and we are sorry for any inconvienience this may cause, but overall it will give us greatly improved facilities.
I will send out a set of the new plans showing everything early next week, and will have these with me on clubday if you want to have a look.
