1996 - CENTRAL COAST SPEEDWAY KART CLUB
Karting in Gosford originated from a kart racer by the name of Cleve Smith who owned two karts, Cleve set about inviting potential competitors to take his karts for a spin up and down the street, Interest took off and after he organised the first track trial at Allan Park on the Somersby Bike Track, The Kart numbers had increased from those first two karts to twelve in twelve weeks.
The interest in karting was that high that a meeting was held in Allan Charlier's garage to discuss the formation of a club, Those in attendance were Cleve Smith, Allan Charlier, Jeff Pickering, Alan and Karen Hann, Rhonda Pickering, Rick Williams, Rob and Jackie Brittcliff.
A further meeting was held some three weeks later and a committee was formed, that being Alan Hann president, Clive Smith vice president, Jeff Pickering secretary and Allan Charlier treasurer.
