Who are the Eastern Lions Kart Club?
The Eastern Lions Kart Club was established in 1961 and the original track was located at Humevale near Whittlesea. Currently the membership consists of approximately 160 karters and their families predominantly from the northern and north eastern suburbs of Melbourne. We also have a growing regional membership. Eastern Lions Kart Club is incorporated and is governed by a committee of volunteer club members.
The previous site at Whittlesea was outgrown in terms of track and surroundings. The need to move to a bigger location and longer track became apparent in 1989, and a number of sites were evaluated. The opportunity to purchase 72 acres of land at Puckapunyal was ideal for the club's future requirements. The size of the land, zoning, proximity to facilities in Seymour and it's geographical location in Victoria all made the location an excellent venue for a kart track.
Located only eight kilometres from Seymour, accommodation is readily available for track meets. Karters can also travel to Kilmore, Nagambie or Broadford as alternatives. These local communities benefit from the club. with fuel supplies and other amenities close by.
