The sun is shining and the mercury has returned back above the freezing mark meaning this weekend many kart tracks across Ontario will finally kick off their annual club race seasons.
After being forced to cancel their Rookie orientation last weekend due to inclement weather, Goodwood Kartways will open up their TRAK Championship on Saturday for all two and four-cycle categories. They will utilize the full long track configuration that will be used for the opening round of the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship in just over a months time. The event is sponsored by PRO Racing Services with practice kicking off at 10:00AM. For more information, www.goodwoodkartways.com.
The Innisfil Kart Club will also get their activities underway this weekend with their IKC School on Saturday April 16, followed by their first IKC club race on Sunday April 17, challenging drivers on the Krazy Downhill 1 configuration. IKC School will kickoff at 10:00AM. More information can be found on http://www.innisfilkartclub.ca.
Quyon Karting, home of the Ottawa-Gatineau Karting Championship, is opening up their doors this weekend for test and tune in anticipation of their race season.
Also in the capital region, Lombardy Karting will host their Novice and Rookie School this Saturday followed by an open practice day on Sunday. Lombardy will host the Eastern Ontario Karting Championship in 2016, a new name for their program. If you have any questions about the club, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
While the Mosport International Karting Association doesn’t get their race season underway until May 1, they will host their Rookie Orientation and Spring Training on Sunday April 17 at Mosport Kartways.
For those down in Leamington, Ontario, it appears they will have to wait a little longer to get on track as the grounds around Point Pelee Karting dry up before trucks and trailers can make their way onto the property.
Alas CKN Nation, the karting season is here!
