Spring is nearly upon us, and we are gearing up for a great season. The schedule is posted, expect more practice days to be outlined as time goes on. You are encouraged to check out individual facilities’ own schedules as well.
March 4th we will be participating in a track clean up day at TCKC. They are always a very gracious host to us, and we would appreciate your help in taking care of the great facility they have.
There will be minor changes to the rule book this year, so keep an eye out for an update from us when that occurs. Functionally, most elements of the day will remain the same or very similar to last year. We were very eager to get a timing system for 2017, but it will be postponed until 2018 currently. We want to make sure we bring in the correct system, with all of the proper elements, which means it is more expensive than originally budgeted for. This year, we will race twice at Bremerton, and will configure the track CCW for both rounds. The kart tracks we use are both clockwise, so this will help change up the feel, and improve tire life!
So far in the pre-season, we are definitely seeing growth in terms of membership. Many new bikes have been purchased, and we expect to see quite a new faces frequenting the pits and track. This means only good things for racing. For those of you that are new to our organization, please feel free to send us an email! We will likely try to hold an informal new racer school in April if time permits. It is our responsibility to keep everybody informed and safe, but we will appreciate your help in seeking us out if you feel you are missing some details.
We’re looking forward to seeing everybody on the track again!
