The official Northwest karting championship for 2-stoke karts contested over 6 rounds in 2016, and again in 2017, is run in combination with local series and events. The goal is to have a more condensed, time friendly, competitive and fun focused series with a higher and more consistent entry base of Shifter, and TaG, racers.
All types of 2-stroke engines are welcomed! In TaG, older "obsolete" Rotax engines, and Parilla Leopards are encouraged to come on out and have fun, along with the newer X125's, and X30's. Shifters, bring what you have - '99 Honda, '01 Honda, ICC, KZ - you name it, we're all racing together. Different weights for different engines, but only two shifter classes...either Shifter Light, or Shifter Heavy...keeping it simple and fun!
2016 was HUGE! Thank you to everyone who participated - watch for even more great things in 2017!
If you are interested in running this series as a regular, we would love to hear from you! Like our Facebook page, and come race with us.
