ENGINES were finally roaring again at Rochester Kart Club last month as racers returned to the track.
On July 26, the club held its first meeting in several months after coronavirus restrictions surrounding the sport started to be lifted.
Brigid Cagney, who is a timing officer for the club, said it was great to see so many smiling faces.
“It felt like we hadn't been together in a long time,” she said.
“The meeting was still held under strict guidelines including just one member of the pit crew for each driver.
“But we're pleased to report everything ran smoothly.”
Cagney said the meeting, which was held in conjunction with the Bendigo Kart Club, attracted drivers from regional areas across the state.
“It's really important we continue to support each other right now considering the major tracks in Melbourne can't be used,” she said.
“There were a lot of new kids on the track so it was great for them to have an opportunity to develop their skills.”
The racing wasn't the only highlight of the weekend with the club also hosting a working bee.
“We've put in a lot of effort to continue improving our facilities,” Cagney said.
“One of the major improvements has been to construct a viewing platform. Hopefully it can be used in future events to give people a better look over the track.”
