What is a good time for a Midget around Butterfly Farm? 2 Replies

Any ideas? A mate's son has been getting around there and they want to know what a good time is so they know when he's up to speed enough to progress...

Hey Aron,
Not sure about grid formation or recommended gearing, but the track definitely has a single mag strip on the start/finish line for timing.

As far as I am aware anybody can race on the "sprint" or "handicap" race meets (although the last few handicap meets have been cancelled due to insufficient entrants).
Best place for info are their facebook pages:

Just wondering about a few things: if these race meetings (that are on once a month) are proper grid formation races?. What gearing for a clubman heavy running 10t front? Does this track have magnetic strips for the mychron to pick up? If so how many? And can anyone race on these nights? Thanks.

Hello everyone,

What's a good time for a senior to run, on a J engine? I ran a 46.9 last time out, is that good/bad/average/race-pace? Be honest, and sorry my Google skills honestly can't seem to find this info...

Hey everyone, I am part of a team of 4 people with 4-stroke karts (don't hold that against us) who are looking for others to join us in a bit of social karting at Butterfly or Picton. We've got two Suby's and two Briggs World Formula karts. Shoot me a message to get in touch.

I'm sorry, but there are some fools that go there and try and race you. I had a guy come up to me and ask why he couldn't keep up since he had a clubman the same as me. When I looked at his tyres he had Bridgestones that were over 20 years old and had cracks in the sidewalls!

I like to take my son to practice there but some of the "adults" that go out need to wake up to themselves and realise it's not a race and if there are kids on the track to use some brainmatter and a little caution. The people who run the place can only do and see so much, just like an AKA race meeting, so you have to have a little self control.

Last time i went out, some complete TOOL had coolant with glycol in it and lost a hose, spilling it all over the track! Just a tip, glycol in any form of motorsport is illegal because it makes the track like ice.
