Micro Sprint Division Joining Merrittville’s 25th Kart Season

While plans for Merrittville Speedway’s 25th Anniversary Season are starting to come together – one thing for certain is the addition of a Micro Sprint Division to the Bobcat of Hamilton Weekly Karting Series line up for 2018.

“Our Kart Teams got a look at a Micro Sprint at our recent Awards Banquet,” said Merrittville Owner Don Spiece, “t’s an established class … it’s only natural to provide a second race venue for them – it’s something that established Karters can take a look at … in addition to those new to the sport.”

Micro Sprint Racing has taken place the last few summers Thursday Nights at Ohsweken Speedway. At Merrittville Speedway – a Junior Micro Sprint Class will develop as interest and participation grows.

“We’ve come up with a set of rules as a start,” said RCM Racing Equipment’s Chris Long, “from any feedback we receive – we may make some minor adjustments.”

Current Kart Racers can convert their existing Karts to a Micro Sprint or purchase a new or used machine as there are several manufacturers. Micro Sprint Racing can provide Karting families involved in the sport already or those looking at getting involved a little more piece of mind with a roll cage, seat belts and arm restraints as further driver safety features.

If you are a Niagara area business leader and would like to sponsor the division – contact Don or Jim at your earliest convenience at 905-708-5534 or 905-984-0608 respectively.
