Weekly Update

This is a weekly karting update for the Northern California karting scene.

From an expansion standpoint, Norcal Karters has dipped its toe into the podcasting scene. We added a podcast page to our site and we are hosted by Spreaker.  Our page on Spreaker is https://www.spreaker.com/show/3555649.  Give the show a listen and give us your feedback.  You can’t hurt my feelings, I’m doing this stuff for the karter.  So I want to bring you value.

Our first episode included a guest from www.kartpulse.com fame, James McMahon.  If you haven’t checked out his karting community project, go do it after you read this post.  James helped by cut my teeth and assisted with working out some sound details.  I met him through social media and what he has been doing for the grassroots kart racer.

This past weekend, SKUSA’s California ProKart Challenge had a double header event at the CalSpeed Karting Facility in Fontana.

This weekend is fathers day.  If you don’t have a gift idea or anything planned, grab your dad, your kid, or a father figure in your life and head out to BlueMax Kart club for the 80cc Norcal gathering on Saturday.  The official event page is found on Facebook by clicking this link – https://www.facebook.com/events/317983452208403/.  It was started off as an 80cc Shifter Day (open practice), which also turned into a TrackMagic Owners Group get together.  They also have a Facebook group page – https://www.facebook.com/groups/1816255888667285/  We will be out there looking for interesting people to podcast with.

Also this weekend is a club race at Prairie City ORVP on  Saturday the 15th.  More information can be found on their website – https://www.pckarting.com/

This weekend is also the Sanzaru Rok Cup Championship race at Sonoma.  This event is not yet on our Norcal Calendar, but we have reached out to the club to update their calendar.  More information on their series can be found here – http://www.sanzarukarting.com/index.html

Looking forward over the next few weeks we have a California Rok Cup event, KPX event, and a NCK Road Racing event.  Dates can be found on our calendar – http://www.norcalkarters.com/calendar/
