Canadian Karting Challenge Set for Shannonville Bear Hunt on August 4-6

With Shannonville Motorsport Park next on the docket for the Canadian Karting Challenge (CKC), a fun-filled weekend of competition is set to be had by all. With a combined event allowing competitors to attain points in the Canadian Karting Challenge, Innisfil Kart Club and Vega Cup, a serious prize fund continues to headline one of Ontario’s premier karting programs as well as the annual ‘Bear Hunt’ that continues in Shannonville.

“Shannonville always is a family-friendly race and one of the events on our calendar that produces great on track battles,” explains Innisfil’s Tony Launi. “The long front straight provides for trains of karts, nose to tail, in a high speed game of chess. With points and awards on the line, all competitors are actively seeking to hoist the elusive and prestigious ‘Bear’ trophy.”
