Racers, start your engines.
The Spruce Capital Karting Association is gearing up for the 2005 Central Interior Karting Series, which gets underway next month. SCKA president Al Brochu said he’s expecting a lot of exciting racing this season with the addition of the Rotax class.
“We’re going to have a bunch of motorcycles and we’re going to have the pocket bikes out this year. They are quite small bikes,” said Brochu. “Some good racing. We’ve got a couple of new classes coming in with Rotax in junior and senior. It’s a single-speed, 125 liquid cooled engine and the winner of the nationals can go to the world championships all expenses paid.”
The club will host four-race weekend during the season with the first one on May 15 against the Quesnel Karting Association.
At the moment the club has been out twice a week with practice sessions and on May 7 they will be holding a try a kart day.
“It will be held from noon to about 5 p.m. It’s a chance for people to try out a kart,” said Brochu. Practice sessions are being held Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6:30 p.m. to dark.
“We’ve gotten a few new members this year already and hopefully we’ll get a lot of last year’s members back as well,” said Brochu.
There are two different classes for juniors. Junior one is for riders’ ages right to 12 and junior 2 for kids 12 to 16.
