It was smiles and loud engines all round at the Rochester Kart Club on Sunday.
The club held its first track day, in collaboration with the Bendigo Kart Club, since opening up again after restrictions were lifted.
"At one stage during the day, I just stood back, looked around at everyone and all I could see were smiles on faces," RKC president Jason Gibson said.
"It was fantastic to see and overall a very successful weekend."
The race meet saw RKC, BKC and other racers from non-restriction zones compete on the club's 778m clockwise track.
The racers were gifted great weather for big day of racing which saw Nate Young take out the KA4 Junior Light race and Adam Campbell conquer the KA3 Light/ Vic Combined light class.
Chelsea Humphrey took out the Cadet 12s, Zack Thompson made light work of the KA4 Junior Heavy race, Clayton Groves shined in the KA4 Junior Heavy and Charlie Damaschino cruised to victory in the Cadet 9 class.
Gibson said it was a challenging time for the sport and the club, but was grateful for the support provided by Karting Victoria.
"We just wanted to get back to action and see racers out on the track at our facility having a good time," Gibson said.
"We've been incredibly lucky to have support from the sport's state governing body wherever needed.
"It made it a whole lot easier getting back on track with all of the new rules and regulations."
