This coming Saturday May 7th is our first race of the 2016 season at Flamboro Speedway. With over 110 members registered we are expecting record numbers in all 6 Honda classes the club will run this year, Cadet, Novice, Jr. Lite, Jr. Heavy, Sr. Medium and Masters. The gates open at 6:30 AM, registration starts at 7:00 AM, and karts will start practice at 8:00 AM. In addition to seeing our new and returning drivers compete in our first race of the year we also want to extend an invitation for all kart racers to come and join us on Saturday as we start the season.
The traditional start to the season for the Waterloo Regional Kart Club was our Driver Training day. On Saturday April 30th we had 35 1st and 2nd year drivers come spend the day at track. We had many club members on hand to help the new drivers as they learned to drive and control their karts. The day included kart control skills, race procedures, flags, and a chance to get in some practice laps for the drivers.
Their mechanics and crew were kept busy also with instruction on kart preparation and maintenance. As the day progressed it was clear that all of the drivers will be ready to participate in their 1st club race.
