About Us

Hamilton Kart Club has been around for many years, moving to its current location from a dirt track on Avalon Drive in the early 1980’s.  Many upgrades and extensions have taken place in recent years to make Hamilton one of the premier kart circuits in New Zealand.

The club has hosted both National and North Island events along with the CIK Trophy of New Zealand, Top Half Series, Rotax Challenge Events and Shifter Series.  Hamilton’s Annual Anniversary Meeting held in September hosts many of New Zealand’s top drivers.
