Over 20 million athletes and racers perform in MYLAPS-timed contests each year and have access to their results and performance data on one of the MYLAPS platforms.

“For years, WKA has trusted MYLAPS to time its National and Regional Events, while publicly hosting the results data for all to enjoy.” Stated Kevin Williams, WKA President, “We are thrilled to take that relationship to the next level to support the WKA Karting Membership.”

In the partnership, MYLAPS is supporting WKA Members by offering discounts exclusively to WKA racers, using the code WKA2020 at SPEEDHIVESHOP.MYLAPS.COM effective immediately, through 2020.

“MYLAPS continues to innovate with our products and with this partnership we will be able to offer new products and services to WKA competitors that will allow them to keep track of their results and events with the Speedhive app. Our continued focus on innovation has become the reason that not only Pro Sports trust MYLAPS, but the local racer as well and we look forward to growing our support for local Grassroots Racing.” Stated Mike Schmitz, Managing Director of Americas at MYLAPS.
