The Canadian Karting Challenge race series kicked off it’s first round of the 2014 season this past weekend at the Innisfil Indy track. The series drew entrants from throughout the Ontario province. Turnout at the informational meeting about the Canadian Karting Challenge and Innisfil Kart Club (IKC) series prompted high expectations for turnout at the races, which were confirmed by the solid number of entries for round one.
“This weekend was the perfect race to start off the season,” expressed Innisfil Indy’s Rose Launi. “It was a beautiful day and everyone enjoyed themselves.”
Highlighting the weekend was the field of 16 shifter karts during the CKC opening weekend. With a continued focus on the six-speed category, series officials were extremely pleased with this great turnout as the class shows growth and promise for the 2014 season.
Innisfil Indy would like to thank everyone who came out to participate in the Canadian Karting Challenge, and their sponsors, the Masini family from Ultra Coat Industries, for their support and contributions. The series is looking forward to Race #2 of the Canadian Karting Challenge at Innisfil Indy on June 21 (practice) and June 22 (race day).
IKC would like to inform their members that the June 8 club race has been re-scheduled for June 21 (practice) and June 22 (race day). The race will be running with the Canadian Karting Challenge event, and will be a points race. Attendance and registration is mandatory to be eligible for IKC points.
