Kawartha Durham Kart Club 2010 Preview

Preparations are well underway for the Kawartha Durham Kart Club 2010 Championship season. With new kart racers joining the club and many returning members, the upcoming season is shaping up to be another great year for the club. Classes offered are Novice, Junior Lite and Heavy, Senior Lite and Heavy, Honda Masters and TAG Junior and Senior.

Fees remain virtually unchanged at only $120 for club membership which includes banquet ticket. New for this year will be family discounts and multi-class discounts. Race day fees will be still be only $65 for first family member, $35 for each additional member. Want to do more than one class? Your race day fee for the first class is $65 and each additional class is only $35. Visiting racers pay only $65 and can race as many times as wanted with KDKC.

Changes for 2010 will focus mainly around the safety of the drivers. Kawartha Speedway will be moving a lot more of the concrete barriers and will create more safety barriers to be located in key positions. “Increased safety is paramount to the club’s success and we have listened to the concerns and comments of our members and guests. We will do everything possible to make sure your experience at KDKC is safe and cost effective.” Paul Evans, President KDKC.

To maximize exposure, the club participated in the Canadian Motorsports Expo and will be entering a float in the Peterborough St. Patrick’s day parade on March 14. The club will also take part in Family Day open house at Kawartha Speedway on Sunday, April 25 at Kawartha Downs. Everyone is welcome to visit for stock car, and horse rides. The club will once again be in attendance at most Friday night stock car races at KDS. More information to follow.
