Venue Change for Rounds 3 & 4 of 

2015-16 Bayleys WPKA Goldstar Series

It has become apparent that Round 3 of the W.P.K.A Bayleys GoldStar Series planned to be held at KartSport Hawkes Bay on 6 March 2016 is clashing with NZ Horse of the Year show - also to be held in the Hastings Region.

Due to the clash of dates I have been informed that accommodation is already close to running out and any accommodation that is left is a 3 day minimum book at highly elevated prices.

It appears that 'horse' competitors are a lot more organised than 'kart' competitors' when it comes to entering competitions and booking their accommodation :).

This poses a BIG problem for the series and for KartSport Hawkes Bay as while the event could go ahead our racers will not be able to attend due to a lack of accommodation.

After lengthy discussions with all the W.P.K.A clubs and also with the KartSport New Zealand Executive to obtain a solution for our racers, W.P.K.A can now announce that the Wellington Round 4 and the Hawkes Bay Round 3 venues have been swapped around.


Wellington - Round 3 - 6 March 2016
Hawkes Bay - Round 4 - 1 May 2016

Please mark these changed venues in your diaries and perhaps think about booking your accommodation in both venues early so as not to miss out.

We will be emailing all competitors and have asked clubs to email their database's also - however please ensure you spread the word to help ensure all racers become aware of the changed venues.

Thanks for the great support of the series so far - have a well earned break and we look forward to commencing battle once again in WELLINGTON in March.

Marty and the WPKA team.
