I just noticed that no Midwest SKUSA schedule was put out. I know it was not well attended last year. Interesting, no SKUSA and the Great Lake pro series also gone other then a few one offs. I know most shifter kart guys are showing up to the roadraces as am I but is shifter sprinting pretty much dead? Were is everyone racing I still think SKUSA should push the one off New Castle Shifter fest.
Everyone is here: http://www.neshifterkartseries.com/schedule.html
I dont know about this year but last year and before that I raced shifter sprints in il and the class was dead as a door nail. Apparently its to much work and money.. imo.
I plan on running Stock Moto at New Castle this year and joining the NESKS when they visit Pitt Race. To fill out the schedule, I’ve also found a few of the SIRA races that they will allow me to run in and a few dates at G&J and Pitt Race. Keep the Faith… and hope to see you at the track!
Is there a small series / events where folks can run their old ICC (KZ) style shifter machines in the Midwest. Specifically south-east Michigan?
Thank you David!
There’s no Midwest SKUSA series this year, but they are planning a shifterfest @ NCMP in September.
Off the top of my head, shifter options in the midwest are….
CES: Blackhawk, IL, June | Grattan, MI, July | Blackhawk August | Gingerman, MI September
WKA: Grattan, MI, May
MKC: Waterford Hills, MI, June | MIS, MI, September
Rock Island Grand Prix: labor day weekend
SKUSA Shifterfest, NCMP, IN September (2nd weekend?)
SIRA in and around IN
Road America Kart Club
You wont go wrong with any of these events but you will find biggest grids for shifters at CES Blackhawk and MKC @ MIS. We had 47 shifters lined up at Blackhawk in August last year. A mix of Stock, mod and KZ/ICC.
If you have questions PM me as I’m not on EKN a lot these days.
Still running shifters and TAGs at Rock Island Grand Prix. stock moto, open shifter (ICC, mods and stock Honda) and masters; TAG Jr., Sr., Masters and Leopard.
