Thank you Alan!

2010 Championship Results
MKB congratulates all 2010 Club Champions.
And thank you to all participants who came out to race.
A big applause to all volunteers, workers and supporters who made the racing at MBK possible.

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 kart tracks have been using.  Proven, reliable, and great tech support. 

Race Registration will remain the same. There will be a transponder rental fee per race (see RaceInfo). There will be no additional costs for those of you that have your own AMB transponder, just the usual registration.
