Go kart drivers of all ages are welcome to show off their skills in different classes, with food and drinks available at the site. Event co-ordinator Natalie Lock said she was expecting drivers from as far as Bowen, Townsville, Ingham, Mackay and Walkerston to go and compete.
"It's a good family sport," she said.
"My husband likes it because it keeps the family together."
A come and try day will be held on Saturday, June 16 between 10am-3pm for those keen to try their luck at the sport.
Karts will be available for hire for the day, with those interested in having a go urged to book a seat by June 13.
