Karting in Tasmania takes place over 4 tracks, located at Launceston, Hobart, Smithton and Burnie. Both Launceston and Smithton have hosted National Championships previously. The Launceston Kart Club facility now has seen some major changes since the days of the 60s and 70s. The track length now sits at 773m, at a minimum width of 7m. The pit area is fully sealed, the only circuit in the state to boast this.
The clubrooms and canteen are second to none, both housed in a modern brick building fronted by timber decking and a grassed barbeque area, and a playground for the kids sits alongside. The Launceston Kart Club caters for anyone living in the north and north-east region of Tasmania.

Karting is the world’s most affordable form of motorsport. Karting is considered the first step in any serious racer’s career. It can prepare the driver for high-speed wheel-to-wheel racing by developing quick reflexes, precision, car control, set-up, mechanical and decision-making skills.Â People of all ages can enjoy the sport with children as young as seven competing behind the wheel.
Karting teaches these children, both boys and girls, basic driving skills well before they are able to obtain their road licence.Â Getting into karting is relatively simple. First you need to become a member of your local kart club and start out on a provisional licence. Buying a kart has also been made a lot simpler thanks to a professional trade industry that serves the karters of Australia.

Superkarts Australia —- Visited: 33 Times

Superkarting is an exhilarating and high performance form of motor racing. Likened to a miniature Formula1 or a GP Bike with four wheels, the Superkart is not a hybrid of racing car and go-kart, it is a purpose-built race vehicle in its own right. With average power to weight ratio of 2.9, Superkarts hold outright lap records at many tracks world-wide.
Superkarting is a high performance, affordable motor sport. Sensation to cost is second to no other form of motor racing. With classes for 6 speed 250cc, 125cc Rotax and GP motorcycle engines, fitted 4 wheel disk brakes, full bodywork with rear wing – Superkarting is not an entry to motor sport, it is a progression to a more dynamic and affordable form of motor sport for many sprint karters, motorbike and car racers.
Vintage Kart Club of Tasmania —- Visited: 32 Times

The seed for the concept of VKCT were probably sown as far back as the 40th Anniversary of Karting in Tasmania, celebrated at a race meeting in Launceston in 1999. Peter Fitzpatrick and Don Singline tossed the idea around, but it remained just that for quite some time, with karts of the period appearing only occasionally at the odd club day.
The 50th Anniversary came around in 2009, with karts of different eras taking part in the race meeting at Burnie. At this event, the idea for VKCT quickly got wheels! In October 2011 the official club was formed, affiliation with AKA Tas was done in the same year. Since then the Vintage Kart Club of Tasmania has grown significantly, holding 4 regular test & tune days each year so far, plus invitations to several open race meetings
