thumbThe death of Aaron Ivermee at 30 years of age has sent the Australian karting community into mourning.

Ivermee succumbed to a short battle with cancer, sending a jolt through the tight knit group of karters.

Always a strong campaigner in major events in Victoria, he was a regular part of the CIK Stars of Karting events and was a front-runner at major national events.

He was a leading member of the Geelong Kart Club.

Following in the wheeltracks of his father Norm, a former State Champion in his own right, Ivermee began karting at the age of 12.

Those close to Aaron remember him as a great bloke with a kind heart who possessed an infectious laugh.

Aaron is survived by his father Norm, mother Willie and sister, Janelle.
