The sport of karting relies on volunteer officials who all play a crucial role in ensuring the smooth running of practice and race meetings and maintaining a fair and safe environment for all participants. They work tirelessly behind the scenes, often without recognition, to ensure the success of each practice and race event.

Karting Australia uses an official grading system which is made up of the following levels:

Grade 1 – National Official (May run and control a National Level Race Meeting)
Grade 2 – State Official (May run and control a Zonal and State Level Race Meeting)
Grade 3 – Club Chief Official (May run and control a Club Level Race Meeting)
Grade 4 – General Official (May assist a Club Chief Official in the running of Club Level Race Meetings)
Grade 5 Karting Activity Controller – Club Official (May run and control a Club Level Practice Session)

Anyone over the age of 18 can become an official when they pass the Officials course and complete a Working With Children Check.

Qualifying as a Grade 5 Karting Activity Controller (KAC) allows you to run a practice session.

So if you’re keen to help out on Club Days or at other events, get in touch with our Club Secretary or any other member of the Club Committee and we’ll get you sorted with access to the Officials course.
