Meet the Committee

The “engine room” which drives the Hurricane Go Kart Club. They’re volunteers. Be nice.

My family and I are car and motorsport fanatics. We like Formula 1, V8 Supercars, Drag racing and Moto GP. Anything with a motor or engine really. Although we have only been in Karting since 2019, as a family we are enjoying being involved in the sport. The racing of course is great fun but the people we are meeting in our club and others we visit are creating new friendships that I hope will last a lifetime.

Says he races WA Open Performance class, but it’s been so long since anyone’s seen him in a kart, we’re treating it as a rumour.

Heavily involved in officiating at clubruns, and Open meetings around the State.

Myself, along with my son Zac and long suffering wife Sue, are members of the Hurricane Go Kart Club.
I have been racing for many years, I started back when I was 13, and have raced club, state, national and international rounds. Racing is in our family with my father Bruce being one of the first members of Hurricane, and my mum Lee even raced with the great Marlene Dean.
