The official Northwest Karting championship for 2-stoke Karts will be contested over 6 rounds in 2017, as was done in 2016. It 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. It's a Revolution of 2-strokes!!
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, DD2 - 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!
Next Up is CAN-AM and O2s together at PARC! - Here's the word from Can-Am Karting Challenge...
We have arranged for registration to be open on Saturday afternoon for a couple hours before the O2s twilight practice session begins. There is no pre-reg for the 2 days, but there is a $60 discount for O2s! Register on Saturday for the 2-days at the discounted $135 price, or pre-reg to do the full 3-days at $195.
Point standings, following the Saturday Night Shootout in Tri-Cities, are posted on the Points page
