Five weeks after the champions were crowned at the 2018 season finale at CalSpeed for Tri-C Karters, the club has partnered with Adams Motorsport Park for a three-race shootout to crown a winter series sub-champion. The first race starts this Saturday on December 8.
Tri-C Karters holds 8 races a season, all hosted at CalSpeed Karting in Fontana, CA. In 2016, their biggest change was opening a new Briggs 206 class. Since the pioneer race that April, the original four entries have grown to holding four individual classes dedicated to the Briggs & Stratton four-stroke spec engine filled with driver of all skill levels and ages: 45 Briggs 206 drivers at their season finale in 2018.
The new and growing 100cc TaG classes found a home at Tri-C in the 2018 season with both the ROK VLR100 and the IAME KA100 engine packages racing together. These racing packages bring back the popular 100cc concept of racing that is fast & affordable and competitive & dependable. The racing throughout the year has continued to stay exciting and close all year long, even coming down to the final race of the season.
Tri-C Karters will be hosting races for a wide variety of classes at the Chill Challenge Winter Series:
- Kid Kart
- TaG Micro
- TaG Mini
- TaG Junior
- TaG Senior
- TaG Masters
- ROK GP
- 100cc Senior
- 100cc TaG Junior
- 100cc TaG Senior

- Briggs 206 Junior
- Briggs 206 Senior
- Briggs 206 Masters
Some teams that race regularly with Tri-C Karters are very excited to bring over large groups across multiple classes, up to six drivers in some cases. Many teams in the Southern California club not only race regularly but have grown up in the sport of karting, building a significant reputation and prestigious recognition in the open wheel motorsport. Class sponsor Formula Works, led by team owner Anthony Siragusa respectively, had high praise for the commitment of Tri-C to the karting community during the off-season.
“We choose to race with Tri-C Karters because we love the way we are treated at Tri-C,” Siragusa stated in preparation to the opening round of the 2018 So Cal Chill Challenge. “We and our drivers truly feel appreciated. [Our drivers] have all put in a lot of work to be successful, and we feel good about winning, but we are also realistic about potential racing outcomes.”
The first race kicks off with the driver’s meeting at 7:30am PT at Adams Motorsport Park. Pre-registration closes at 5:00pm PT, but race registration and pit passes are available at the track the day of the event.
