As always, WKA requires minors to have a parent/guardian sign the release to get a pit pass. In the past, we could keep the normal form on file so you didn’t need to fill it out each time you were here. Now the normal form is good for the day, and you have to have a notarized form to keep it on file. If you have a current WKA membership card that shows your release is on file with them, we don’t need another.
Here is the Notarized version of the form if you’d like to come prepared. We will have daily forms available all year.
It's up! League racing info is final, with Thursday nights all summer bringing you some very cool racing. We are moving the start time to 6:30 for the spring series, and are looking for input for the summer series start time. This change will allow more people to get here after work without speeding tickets.
I'm working on the prizes now, a combination of Speed Schools and Spec Kart rental. It's going to be a great season!
Club Membership has long been needed for season points and a reserved kart number. We are adding another huge benefit – The ‘JET Bucks’ rebate program.
Any parts that are pre-ordered in the shop will earn a 5% rebate, paid out in JET Bucks. Pre-orders need to be received by noon EST on Tuesday. We then charge your on-file credit card, and have the parts ready for you to pick up on Saturday morning. JET Bucks will be redeemable for anything from JET Karting on-site, except karts, parts, and engines.
As always, we are honoring all of the discount certificates that we awarded at the banquet last season from Norway. While they originally expired mid-March, we can take them until the end of the month this season.
The 'Rock Kart' Spring Sprints are scheduled, as are the rest of the events for the year. Details will be coming this weekend, as well as schedules for the Leagues. We are also working on a date for a summer endurance race.
We are looking at some really cool prizes, and a very well run events. MRP set the bar high, and we will live up to those standards!
Racers have been asking us about our plans for tires this season. Kris and I have spent LOTS of time kicking around different options. We’ve looked at the issue from different angles trying to come to the best answer for both the track and racers.
Kid Karters are fast karters, and we will make sure they get laps to prove it this season. It is our thought that this is a class for learning, and we should be teaching both drivers and crew to run well. This learning requires laps to teach the driver, tech to keep the equipment even, and season points to allow for year long goals.
