Kart racers from Ontario, Québec and other parts of North America will be competing for over $5000 in cash and prizes in four Briggs classes (novice, junior, senior and masters) and one 4 stroke GT class (a mix of Honda and Briggs!!). Other promotional events include a car show with Formula Race Cars, Muscle Cars, Tunders & Exotics, a Family Fun Zone with face painting, balloons, inflatables for the kids and so much more! Come have some fun!
The Charity Challenge race for FUN will involve local teams of enthusiasts raising as much vital dollars for our Charity Partners: Children’s Wish Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Canada, HERA Mission, Roger’s House, Soldier On & the Ottawa Senators Foundation.
ROGERS TV will be set-up with an elaborate TV Crew and 6 camera positions will deliver excellent coverage of the excitement of kart racing for this Inaugural Edition! Plenty of door prizes for spectators attending this free family event thanks to the many generous sponsors that are also part of the week-end attraction and make this possible.
Full details are now available from the event web site (http://capitalkarting.com/index.php/en/) including rules, the latest schedule, prize description and online race registration.
In order to help us ensure that everyone has suitable space in the paddocks and so that there are no surprises, a free paddock registration has recently been added to the web site and participants are strongly encouraged to submit registration before July 20th.
We look forward to seeing you at Karter’s Korner on July 25-26 and looking forward to Racing together in Ottawa… the Capital of Karting.
