While a majority of kart racers have taken the checkered flag on their 2020 season, the team at Goodwood Kartways raced on in November both on track and off! Keeping busy throughout the month, mild temperatures allowed for a major construction project at the track, the National Team headed off to Rok The Rio in Las Vegas, the latest Goodwood Kartways Scholarship class was confirmed and 2021 registration is well underway for both the Toronto Racing Association of Karters and the Canadian Rookie Karting Championship! Continue reading for further details on our November highlights, and watch for more updates in December!
Turn 1 Construction: Run-off area doubled as major re-construct takes place.
- Project consisted of removing and re-positioning existing retaining wall. The end result more than doubled run-off area from 10 to 22 feet! The re-construct provides the obvious benefit of 12 more feet of additional run-off for drivers as well as allowing for additional options with barrier placement. All major construction is completed, and hydro-seeding and barrier placement will bring a close to our latest renovation project. Here is a link to some progress photos of the project: http://goodwoodkartways.com/?page_id=9898
