MERRY CHRISTMAS

E-mail Print PDF

Dear fellow karters.

On behalf of myself and the committee, I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas and New Year period.

After a very good 2013 karting season we look forward to an even better 2014.

As you are most likely aware, on January 1st the track direction will change from clockwise to anti-clockwise (right out the gate).  I must remind everyone that due to many reasons, not the least safety to fellow karters, anyone practicing at the track must go clockwise until January 1st as penalties may apply for anyone doing otherwise.

There are a number of events planned for 2014 with plans already in place for the return of club days in February and March.  The continuation of these will depend on your participation, so if what I am hearing is correct and members want the club days to return, please support these upcoming days.

We are all looking forward to our first meeting on January 18 with a number of different things planned for the FT Guy Bodyworks Twilight Thunder. Supp regs on this page.

Once again, have a safe and happy Christmas and we hope to see you all on January 18th

Mark Mitchell
