Have an Idea or Opinion for Regon 11 Kart Racing?
Our club president George Young recently attended the board meeting of the Northern California Track Association (NCTA).
The board of NCTA is comprised of one representative from each track in IKF region 11 and of the Medford Oregon track in the next region north of us. We received a $2000.00 grant from the association just a few weeks ago. The meeting minutes are available as a PDF file <here>.
In addition, a proposal form is available as a <PDF> or <Word Document> to enable club members to have input on race classes, how qualifying is conducted, the total number of races for the series, the number of  throw away races, the general format of the regional race events, etc,etc,etc.
After filling out the form it should be returned to George (tyoungracing@yahoo.com) who will present it to the board.
The proposals should be submitted to George before the next NCTA meeting on Aug 29th. Make sure your
contact information is provided in case George needs to contact you with questions or clarifications. >/font>

2010 Race Schedule is now posted! (check the Calendar page for all the dates)
Come out and help get the track ready with us on Feburary 6th and then get your kart and gear together for practice on Feb 20 & 27.  Our first race of the new decade is Sunday February 28th!

2010 Spec Tires
Even though the tire poll votes were in favor of the MG's the board has decided that it's in the best interest of the club to stick with IKF spec tires  - Bridgestone YKC's.  Deviating from IKF would exclude us from future events and make it difficult for other racers coming from Norcal to race with MBK.

New Timing System

Great news! We've purchase a used AMB timing system that is normally over $30,000 for under $10k!!!
This is the same system that ALL the other karts tracks have been using.  Proven, reliable, and great tech support. 

Race Registration will remain the same. There will be a $20 AMB transponder rental fee per race. We also have good used transponders with new charging kits for $150 each. There will be no additional costs for those of you that have your own AMB transponder...just the usual registration.

Donations are still needed!!  We are still waiting for about half the people that said they would pitch in for the timing system. We all know times are tough, but if it's in your budget, we would greatly appreciate it. We only received about $3000 from the members. The board members, George , EJ & John have all put in a total of $7000 of their "OWN PERSONAL" money to make this happen. $10k AMB systems don't come around often, so we had to jump on it immediately. Again, we are a NON-Profit org, so you will get a receipt for end-of-year tax deductions.
