We have been in operation since 1958 and are one of the most progressive Kart Clubs delivering exceptional competitions in a friendly and safe environment. The facility is located in the heart of the Ipswich Motorsport Precinct on Champions Way at Willowbank. Karting has played a big part in realising the dreams of many of today’s superstar drivers such as Mostert, Courtney, Whincup, Lowndes, Winterbottom, Briscoe and Webber. All these drivers started their motorsport journey through Sprint Karting. Some of the drivers mentioned above race often at Ipswich, and even call Ipswich home. IKC is the premier karting club in South East Queensland & the largest member only karting facility in Queensland. A place where the whole family can be involved in a safe, friendly, and most importantly fun environment. Today a new generation of young drivers are calling Ipswich home and they will go on to be tomorrows motorsport industry future champions.
