Volunteer Race Officials
It takes a lot of people to put on an event on; my favorite is being a track-side Corner Marshal. The best way to watch a race is to be in the kart. The second best way to watch is to be a
trackside marshal. If you are interested in racing but not sure about it yourself, being a marshal might be for you. Marshals are there for emergencies and to communicate with racers with flags and
to communicate regarding the race with others via radio. Training is provided by an extremely experienced Race Director Fred Causer & experienced Marshals.
Volunteer Race Officials Positions:
Weigh Scale Marshall
Pre-race Technical Inspector
Post-race Technical Inspector
Lap Scoring and Time Keeper

Kid Kart Program
Kid Kart is a program in cooperation with ASN Canada where children 5-7 years of age can gain experience with karts and karting at a young age.
No wheel-to-wheel racing takes place but lapping sessions provide the concepts of braking points, lines, handling, etc.
At 7 years old they can enter the Junior 1 race class. Those who own their own Kid Kart can also run on race days during the lunch break. If you do not own your own Kid Kart, we offer specific evenings, called Kid Kart Try A Kart, where you can rent one of our Kid Karts to gauge your child’s interest.
