Welcome to iKartSport (SIM Racing). (Join the league followers on FACEBOOK)
Welcome to iKartSport, virtually just as much fun as feeling the wind on your face, the thrill of the chase and pain in your arms and ribs on a KartSport New Zealand track. KartSport is first and foremost a family sport, built on a foundation of club days, camaraderie, and yes healthy fun, fair competition and our mission with the iRacing SIM-based "iKartSport" events are really no different. No big prizes for who wins, no trips to the World Champs, just good Club Day fun in the true spirit of KartSport.
Just like a Club Day you may be on track with a totally new chum, and with iKartSport, you might even be racing one of our KartSport officials, you might be on track with a national champion or you might even be on track with an international star. Anyone can play, KartSport members, family, and friends. Share the love, share this LINK, visit our Facebook Group, have fun. #ikartsport
To get our iKartSport started we are going to keep it real simple and would love your help and feedback. Feel free to comment or message us on our KartSport Facebook page or email us direct HERE. Any more questions go to our discord https://discord.gg/w7Dd4N7.
When and What Do We Race:
What Gear Do I Need?:
Well, the good news is you can race in your pajamas but yes you will need some equipment and anyone can race....
Not sure if you have the gear to run iRacing?
What comes with IRacing membership? Click HERE
NOTES:Most current-generation PCs will perform effectively on iRacing.com. In the event that a member owns an older computer, an upgraded graphics card could potentially be all that is required to enable the iRacing online driving simulator to operate successfully. Mac users can run iRacing using Windows on Bootcamp.
However, the member will require a controller to enjoy the full range of experiences afforded by iRacing’s racing simulator. Currently, there are several options available, accommodating nearly any budget. A host of steering wheel/pedal combos, gamepads, joysticks, mouse-based control systems, and any version of the Microsoft Windows operating system, supporting touch screen driving are compatible with iRacing.com.
For the most intense online racing experience, however, iRacing suggests a force-feedback steering wheel/pedal control system, when compared with other types of controllers. Some suggested, readily available forced feedback/pedal sets combo are listed below.
iRacing also supports many Virtual Reality headsets including popular models from Oculus and HTC.
All You Need To Know Is On The iRacing Site HERE

Dillon Photography iKartSport 3 Round Series: 21 Jul – 25 August
Background & Sponsor
3 Round Series, livestreamed by SIM Speed TV fortnightly over 6 weeks Tuesdays 28 July, 11 Aug and 25 Aug
The next 3 round series is backed by award winning photographer Chris Dillon. World renowned photographer Chris has a unique ability to capture stunning images that bring out the best of any subject, be it the bonds between families which we in Kartsport and Motorsport know so well, to corporate events and of course his stunning take on the automotive world being the goto photographer for Audi New Zealand, Porsche, Ferrari, Subaru, RYCO 247 V8 Ute series, Hampton Downs Motorsport Park and many more.
Chris makes that lens capture the personalities of car, driver, spectator and now perhaps you and your car or kart?
Dillon Photography Photoshoot Auction
Chris has kindly donated a professional 3 hour shoot to the value $1,200 to use however you wish. Perhaps a session with driver kart and team for sponsorship proposals, a montage of collectibles of your race car or classic automobile. Chris also has the only carbon fibre car camera rig in New Zealand for images that defy belief. This package is big enough to include a camera rig shoot and stills photography of any vehicle. You may wish to use the shoot for something else… Family photo session, corporate event, engagement shoot. Chris is open to accommodating your photographic requests.
Look for more information shortly on the iKartSport SIM racing program and for the shoot to go live as a Trademe auction soon. LINK TBA
