Letter From the President

john rayWow, we are already into the second month of the new year. Two winter races down and the rules meeting done. See new rules highlights in print on our web site.

As we move further into the year we have some traveling races coming up, as well as the IKF 2 and 4 stroke nationals (Duffy time again). If you were not aware, the IKF was formed in 1957 and is the oldest and considered the most prestigious sanctioning body in the US and just formed an alliance with SKUSA. We will be waiting to see how this evolves and how or if it will effect us.

Our race this year with the Texas Pro Kart Challenge (TPKC) will be a first-time under the lights and will be backwards. So hang on to your helmets for some real racing action. As for our members who follow the TPKC series, you will want to attend our backwards club races for practice.

We have new inspection tags. We will be inspecting your karts for the 2018 year for safety issues as we progress from now until March. This will allow us to get ahead of this, instead of being bombarded with everyone all at once at the first Spring race. Get your paperwork filled out and make sure your karts are in order and in-tune with the rules.

One of the biggest changes in the safety rules is that neck braces for seniors only will be optional. Juniors will still be required to wear them. Of course I don't know why someone wouldn't wear one; after all it's only your neck. It is much like the quality of your helmet: how much is your head worth?

John Ray, President

A Word From the President at NTK:

The international KART Federation (IKF) has awarded the 2-Cycle and 4-Cycle National Championship in 2018 to North Texas Karters in Denton TX. I would like to say "Thank You!" to IKF and all of those individuals involved in this process for the opportunity to host this great racing event.

Just a reminder to NTK members and track visitors that the speed limit on Memory Lane the gravel road leading to the track is 10 mph. Please be good to our neighbors at the adjacent Northstar Dragway and drive slowly to keep the dust down. Thank you everyone for your cooperation!

Race Day Procedures Update

Hello to all NTK racers & workers - we have a few announcements:

  1. Starting on summer 6 and forward transponders must be on for the last 2 controlled practices. This is to help scoring with any non-working transponders and eventually use it to determine groups to go out for qualifying.
  2. The cones in the chicane (turn 4,5,6) are marked with white paint 18 inches from the center of the apex. Also there is a mark on the center of the apex as well. Corner workers or individuals responsible for the chicane must place cones back on the square if moved by a kart or karts during the race. Be aware qualifying, pre final and final are part of the race.
  3. Esther Cruz is our official announcer and grid steward during our club races at NTK. If she's not able Greg Speed will substitute if available. On a day that they are not available volunteers are welcome to fill in.

Thank you
Bob Schabel Vice President
