With Ontario caught in the grip of a bitter north wind, we hope that the release of our 2013 schedule will help remind racers that summer is just around the corner. The 2013 racing season starts in late April with our traditional driver training and open practice weekend. We conclude the racing season with another great WRKC tradition, the Oktoberfest Grandprix on the Thanksgiving weekend in October.
Between April and October club members will have 14 races to score and accumulate points towards a coveted WRKC class championship. The club has 4 races that will use qualifying to set the order for a pre-final and final race format. We will be running 2 races in the reverse direction, and we will have our traditional Friday night race in July. The club welcomes any kart racer with a valid club racing license to come and race with us.
The schedule will also be posted on our club website at www.wrkc.on.ca. Membership forms for the 2013 season are available on the website. Registration forms can be sent by mail, or we will have a registration table at the WRKC Flea Market on February 23rd at the Rockton Fairgrounds.
The club is happy to report that we already have more vendors registered for this year’s flea market and tradeshow. We still booths and tables available, so if you have not already registered we recommend you do so quickly.
The show will feature used parts, engines, and equipment. Product suppliers will be on hand for Asphalt, Dirt, and Oval kart racing. There will be a used Kart Korral for those looking to either buy or sell a used kart. Door prize draws will go on throughout the day.
