The Calgary Kart Racing Club (CKRC) has a race track called “North Star Raceway”, in Strathmore. CKRC is a non-profit multi class kart racing club with a long history with members from ages 8 – 60 years old. Last year I had a great opportunity to attend quite a few CKRC race events. It was great meeting quite few members from young to old and to see some exciting kart racing.

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.
