Waterloo Regional Kart Club Race 10 Results

New York visitors add flavor to annual Corn Roast event

On Saturday August 16, the Waterloo Regional Kart Club played host to some visitors from New York State who made the trek north with their trailers and Karts. The go karts looked the same but you knew they were not exactly the same when they started the engines. The WRKC is Canada’s largest club that races Honda engines exclusively. The visitors were running Yamaha 2 stroke engines or a Briggs and Stratton motor. As such, they ran in their own class and the WRKC members all had a great time watching some new friends race.

The visitors picked a good day to come and race as it was the club’s annual Corn Roast. Everyone enjoyed some great local corn and the opportunity to talk about the days racing action.
The race day sponsor was Creative Edge Signs & Graphics. They are a Kitchener Ontario Graphics and Design company that has been in business for over 20 years. Steve Lyons, co- founder of Creative Edge Signs & Graphics, started in vehicle graphics as a teenager lettering race cars at the local racetrack. Back then, the tools of the trade were brushes, and a steady hand. Today using all the of the latest technology they will create eye catching Vehicle Wraps, Vehicle Lettering, Signs, Banners, and Decals. Under the Jungle Cat Designs brand they offer custom race helmet painting. From start to finish, creative design, production and application-Creative Edge handles it all.
