Karting Victoria has made the decision to cancel all open race meetings scheduled for the rest of the year.
In a statement released on Friday by the sport's peak state body it was outlined the decision was made due to the ongoing uncertainty around the pandemic.
"Following a Karting Victoria executive meeting conducted last night (Thursday), it was resolved to cancel all open race meetings for the remainder of 2020," KV said.
"We have not taken this decision lightly, but, with the end of the current pandemic seemingly out of sight it was deemed the only responsible course of action."
The decision affects all race meetings except club competitions (club days) and national (KA) events.
Bendigo Kart Club president Matt Ferrari was pleased club days were still on the cards.
"We're looking forward to holding more club days, which so far have been well received by our members," he said.
"At this stage the next one is planned for Saturday August 8."
Ferrari said the club would keep a close eye on any changes to restrictions.
"Hopefully we can continue as we are for the moment. On our end everyone is doing the best effort to adhere to all the rules so we can operate in a safe environment," he said.
Among the open race meets that have been cancelled is the Golden Power Series, which the BKC had been scheduled to host a round in October.
"As a committee we have spoken and we are keen to get the series back at Bendigo next year," Ferrari said.
