KART used to have there national championships in the summer real close to where IKF and WKA had theirs which made it tough for some racers from different parts of the country to go and support other organizations nationals let alone our own. Even though having the KART nationals in October to get away from the other organizations nationals, between cost of HPT, entries and with the weather it made more since to go back. With Hallett’s improvements, that should be a great event.
As for when a organization has there nationals, it doesn’t really matter when they are as this is a separate event even though KART uses it as a series race. National awards are totally different then from the series awards.
Ok cool, was just a little confused. Hallett was a fun track and had a great turn-out last season. I hope it makes the Nationals an even better event! I love seeing more karts at the races. Plus, next year my little brother and brother-in-law are going to make some races, should make the TaG class a little more interesting! Good luck at Daytona to you and Lindsay :)
With the track improvements (repaving) made last year along with what repairs they are making over this winter, Hallett will and should be every REAL drivers dream to want to race on. Anyone can go straight (except Hegar and I mean Chris) but it takes a real driver to win on a track where there are multiple turns and elevation changes!!!!!
Bring em on!!! As you already know, if there is something I can help them with just let me know.
Hallett is a good track for laydowns but, sprinters love it!!! Elevation changes can/will give laydown drivers a challenge.
I’m retired and in the process of training my protege in the art of cock and cob over powered driving styles. Going to the bar with you cats vs beating myself with a cik kart sounds like much more fun.
was talking with the KART office this week – if there is enough interest in filling a World Formula class they would consider adding for the Nat’s. might be interested in making a trip from the left coast- any other WF interested??
