Hello Kart Racers!
Join us on Sunday, August 5 for Race #7 of the Valley Karting Championship at the Lombardy Fairgrounds! We’re nearing the end of the season, and we’ve had 55 racers compete thus far in the four Briggs & Stratton categories raced in this year’s championship – it has been a great season so far!
Note that this is Lombardy Fair Weekend – all racing activities will be held on Sunday!
The first six races have been very competitive – in the Masters category, only 57 points separate the top four racers (James Dunn, Mike Forget, Yan Arsenault, and Brian McCracken respectively – with only one point separating third and fourth); in Senior, 48 points separate the top three, with Charlotte Lalonde in first, Jordan Hounsell in second, and Lee Williscroft in third; in Junior, Nathan Glover leads after six races with 546 points, with Jake McNeely hot in pursuit in second place with 542. Denver Craig remains within striking distance with 504. In Novice, Wyatt McNeely is holding down first place with 550 points, followed by Samuel Spurling (502) and Nolan Gibson (403).
As you have no doubt read, the Lombardy Karting Association (LKA) and the Circuit Quyon Karting Club (LCQKC) have joined forces to provide kart racers in eastern Ontario with a competitive club-level racing series – the Valley Karting Championship! For 2018, LKA and LCQKC have agreed to an eight-race series that will see races split evenly between the two dedicated karting venues. The competitors from both organizations will be challenging for one overall series crown. The categories will be Novice, Junior, Senior, and Masters Briggs and Stratton, as well as LKA’s Spec class.
Note that you must be a member of an ASN Canada club to race at either location. Club membership details are available at both club websites.
Registration for each race will be done for the specific race venue in the manner traditionally followed at each track: LKA registration is done on-site at the track during race weekends (only Sunday for Race #7). The cost to enter a kart and driver is $100.00 for LCQKC and LKA members, or $110.00 for non-members, payable upon registration.
Senior LCQKC and LKA members (15+ years old) may enter more than one class and a discount of $10.00 will be offered on the registration of the entrant’s 2nd class.
FEES CAN BE PAID BY CASH OR E-TRANSFER TO email@example.com
The races will be sanctioned by ASN Canada, the governing body for motorsport in Canada, and will align with applicable ASN technical and sporting regulations, which can be found here. Race #7 race supplementals can be viewed here. Track configuration for Race #7 is the Sonoma counter-clockwise configuration, with no chicanes.
On-site registration and practice lapping starts at 8:30am. The drivers meeting will be held at approximately 12:30pm Sunday, with racing starting shortly thereafter. Don’t be late, or you’ll be starting from the back of the grid!
See you on August 5 for Race #7 of the Valley Karting Championship, being held at the Lombardy Fairgrounds!
