Whether you wish to progress a career in motorsport or simply enjoy the great family atmosphere at Kartsport Hawke’s Bay, Karting offers exciting and affordable motorsport for everyone to enjoy. There are KartSport classes to suit everyone from 6 years to 66 years.

Like many other Karting Clubs in New Zealand and around the world, KartSport Hawke’s Bay have a range of drivers of all abilities. While some enjoy the Club level here in Hawke’s Bay, others travel the breadth of the country, and indeed overseas, chasing higher success.

Clubs generally have two formats of racing including Sprints (10mins)and Enduros (1hr). In their calendar they have Club Championships which can be stand alone events or raced over a series.

Here in the North Island the central Clubs of Wellington, Taranaki, Manawatu and Hawke’s Bay have a WPKA Goldstar series which is an excellent series to improve you skills and travel to different tracks.

Other prestigious events include:

  • Top Half Series
  • Rotax Max Challenge
  • NZ Schools Champs
  • North Island Sprint Champs
  • New Zealand Sprint Champs
