    92? Can a 250 do that? Is the normal level 103?

    Yes but you have to use a big silencer and an intake air box.

    John 92db is what we have had to meet both years we had our own standalone day. The ALMS weekends for the 250’s were unlimited. Last year we had 3 people bounced for noise. 2-250’s and a Yamaha. The yamaha made no attempt at all at quieting his down.

    As for limits Laguna will have a definite kart limit. This was something that came together very quickly and at the last minute. We are still working to iron out all the details.

    Willow Springs events will also have kart limits but they will be much easier to deal with.

    Club membership renewal is open.  Membership includes your annual kart number so if you have a number preference you need to register before some one else takes your number because there will be one number to one member this year.  I have just registered as a member and for the number 11, for example.

    Also, if you want to place an add in our online business directory that comes with your membership too.  You need to let me know in an email if you do.  Let’s give our business to fellow karters who advertise in our club website!

    Does Kart Limits mean to sound db or the number of karts allowed?

    Laguna has a 92 db limit. Willow Springs has no limit I’m aware of or we’ve ever had a problem with.

    Both events will have a limit on the number of karts that can run the event.

    I’m only planning running Laguna & Sonoma. I dont want to be a member for the whole year. I can register for each track and pay for one day membership only? Or can i only register if x amount of members register but the maximum entry hasnt been filled?  please clarify

    The Sonoma race will have no limits on karts as usual and will be open to all.

    We are still working on Laguna details. There is a limit imposed upon us on the total number of karts allowed. Priority will go to paid yearly members first as they are the ones who support the club on a regular basis. If that does not fill the field we will open it up to others. We wish it was our day and we had more control. Unfortunately we dont and this is the fairest way to do it for our members.

    Hoorah!  It’s a reasonable way to encourage participation and support for the NCK BOD sticking their collective necks on the line to host pricey events.  $75 to insure I get a place in the registration line with fellow members, ahead of those that cherry-pick what events they will attend, is fair.  IMO.  That said from the perspective of a fellow that drives a minimum of 6+ hours (each way) to support/race NCK events.  If we don’t support NCK, we won’t always have a road race place to race.

    Stand by for the official word from NCK because some of the details have not been finished yet.  Mark will let you know as soon as he can and thanks for all your enthusiasm.  I can’t wait to go racing again!

    5 weeks until our 1st race at Thunderhill :)  Everybody up here in Sacramento is working on their karts so they will be ready.

    Tip for the day:  Check your rims to make sure that they are still round.  Let’s see how many will be as surprised as I was to find out that some are not round anymore! Of course you have to balance your wheels as well.
