Series News: RaceComplex Up Next for Florida Karting Championship Series

Round three set for this coming weekend in Fort Myers

Florida Karting Championship Series logoAs the Florida Karting Championship Series (FKCS) reaches the middle of its six-race schedule, championship points battles begin to take shape as participants head to the RaceComplex facility in Fort Myers, Florida. With the series seeing growth from previous years and a host of drivers from out of state making an appearance in the program, wheel-to-wheel action has been second to none.

“We have had a lot of drivers, new and existing, compete in the first two rounds of the series,” explained FKCS President Eddie Gennaro. “If you look at the results, you will see some of the biggest names in karting from the Florida area. You will also see the names of drivers that have won national events across the country and several that have competed internationally. We are happy to have them in our program and providing some fierce competition for our regional racers.”

With high winds affecting Sunday during round one in Orlando and a serious thunder storm affecting Saturday of round two in Homestead, series officials are hoping for a sunny and a nice weekend in South Florida. Known as Southwest Florida’s premiere karting track, FKCS participants and board members are hoping for that premiere Florida weather at RaceComplex.

Moving to round three, the Florida Karting Championship Series has a few announcements for their members and participants:

• Registration for round three closes Tuesday, April 30th at midnight. Be sure to register on time to avoid a late registration fee. Online registration is available here: FKCS Registration
• Just as in round two, safety/pre-tech will be open at several times throughout the race weekend. Each race day morning (Saturday and Sunday), pre-race technical inspection will be open from 7:30-9:00am. Technical inspection will also open late on Friday afternoon to relieve the race day morning rush and will be open from 2:00-5:00pm. Participants are urged to complete pre-tech as soon as possible.
