By: Waterloo Regional Kart Club
The first day of the season is always a time of anticipation and excitement for all the members of the Waterloo Regional Kart Club (WRKC). The excitement was somewhat dampened by overcast skies and a forecast of rain. In the end Mother Nature cooperated and all of the racers were run on a dry track.
It was a great chance for the 18 members who attended the club’s driver training day the Saturday before to show they were quick learners as they all did an impressive job on race day. Based on the level of competition it was quick to see that the winter break didn’t have a negative impact on any of the drivers skills, or competitive spirit.
The WRKC was very pleased to have V& L Transportation Sales as our race day sponsor. V&L Transportation Sales sell Trucks. They specialize in selling big trucks, and are well known throughout the trucking industry for have a large inventory of quality used vehicles. As this article was being written they currently had 12 units inventory waiting for a new operator so they could get back on the road.
They are located at 1361 Edgewood Road just off of Highway 6. If you are in the market for a quality Pre-Owned Truck or Equipment then it will be worthwhile to contact V&L. They can be reached by phone at 905-690-0511, or you can visit their website at www.vltransportationsales.com
