The Bash has come and gone and a good time was had by all. And if the wind had blown even a little bit, a great time would have been had by all. Ah well there’s always next year, 8th to 11th June 2018. Mark it in your calendars now.
Thanks to all our club members who turned up to Emu Park on Sunday to help with our display of Blokarts on the beach.
Although there was no wind in the morning and we all thought the day was going to be a complete fizzer, the wind shifted around and increased in the afternoon. Everyone was kept busy taking interested members of the public for a ride.
Australia’s premier winter get-away for Blokarters.
The third Capricornia Blokart Bash, CBB, is to be held over the Queen’s Birthday Weekend at the beginning of June on Mulambin Beach, Yeppoon. Saturday 10th June through until Monday 12th June. (Yes, we know HRH’s birthday in Queensland has inexplicably been moved to October. Queenslanders get over it, take a sickie.)
For all you southerners, the weather in Yeppoon in June is delightful, warm days and cool evenings. The perfect place to escape the colder weather down south. And have fun in your Blokart.
A weekend of fun blokarting and socializing on the beautiful Capricorn Coast.
Team relay events.
Racing with shadows. (2 people per kart)
Racing with deuce bars. (Connecting karts together)
Not sure how many people turned up but there was a steady stream of visitors all day. I think we can pat ourselves on the back, not too shabby for our first attempt at getting the message out to the general public. Thanks to everyone that distributed posters and helped out on the day.

The Capricornia Blokart Club will be holding a “Free Come and Try Day” to introduce locals to the exciting sport of Blokarting. Our local beaches are the perfect venue for this fast and fun pastime which can be enjoyed by age groups from 8 to 80.
A spokesperson for the local club, Steve Bundred, said that with the recent addition of a side-car the club could now take young children for a sail on the beach in complete safety. Even adults, who have never sailed before, can enjoy the freedom of zipping up and down the beach using only the power of the wind.
“The Come and Try Day will be an excellent opportunity for locals to experience the excitement of Blokarting,” said Steve. “With the club’s purchase of the side-car any “landlubber” will be able to have a go and get a valuable introduction to the science of sailing. The same principles of sailing on the water apply to Blokarting.”
The Capricornia Blokart Club’s open day will be held on Mulambin Beach on Saturday the 15th October from 11am to 4pm. There is no charge and everyone is welcome.
