For our new and veteran racers of the Northwest a brief explanation of the Northwest Gold Cup:

The Annual Gold Cup Conference will begin on Saturday Morning November 5th at 9:00AM and will run through the weekend and finish up on Sunday the 6th at the same location of the Awards Banquet.

The Gold Cup Conference traditionally consists of the member clubs and tracks in the Northwest which have been convening since the 1970’s and was conceived and organized to provide a uniform set of rules with IKF sanctioning and to provide parity and equality among all the Clubs, tracks, in the region. The meeting is conducted by one of the IKF Regional Governors.

The Regional Schedules are comprised at this time during the Conference. Once the Regional Schedules are decided at the conference, then the clubs and promoters can schedule their local race season to avoid potential conflicts. Each member Club and or Promoter send 4 delegates to the Gold Cup Conference to debate and vote on rules, classes, dates, officials, etc. for the region to ensure all clubs and their members and the karters are treated fairly and uniformly.

Once dates and rules etc. are voted on, the club delegates then take that information and present to their respective club members and the clubs to set schedules, class structure and rules packages accordingly.

The conference meetings are open to all our karting family of the Northwest and we highly encourage your attendance and input through your respective club or promoter representatives so that the racers voice is heard. While is it is implied, a reminder to all that the vast majority of the delegates and elected officials of the IKF Gold Cup member clubs are volunteers and without their support throughout the last 40 plus years the Gold Cup and the regional program would not exist.

So for those that volunteer to help make our sport better a huge Thank You is in order. If you would like to volunteer or help out contact your local representatives and get active.
