    Classes are filling up; we are capped at 45 karts per session so get your entry in now!

    Ray, Mark is sending out the details but I am pretty sure we will be able to drop off trailers Friday (gate will be locked at @ 7:30pm [Mark will confirm time]).  We are waiting on word from Speedventures as to where we are pitting (karts pit together).

    Here is a short preview video for the CorkScrew Invitational this weekend at Laguna Seca. Good luck to everyone, don’t miss a chance to race this awesome track.

    Also, NCK and I have set up a shared Google Drive so that racers or fans can send me footage for the race recap videos that I do for the west coast clubs. If you are interested, please PM me.

    Hey Guys. looking forward to the race weekend. Sorry I don’t run more with you. I wish I could. I need some clarification on the rules for this event.I’ll be running Stock Honda, What tires are allowed? Do we need to run MG yellows?

    What fuel is allowed for this event? Do we have to use the track pump?
    What oil is allowed?

    Where can I find the rules online?

    Nick, go on the NCK site. Email or phone Mark Morrison.

    You will need an Air Box, at least a 14″ silencer as there is a 92db limit. Tires I believe are open. Group 1 (Shifters run 3 times, twice on Saturday and once on Sunday) You have to run the same set of tires. Mark sent out a revised email today.

    Nick, same rules as last time we ran Laguna. I’d imagine fuel will be a tech item probably sold at the track.

    Regarding fuel, Mark sent out an email a couple of days ago reporting that there were pump problems at the track location, and fuel may not be available on race day – his suggestion was to bring your own.  For a shifter, 4 gallons might suffice, but 5 or 6 would be better.  Oil is open, use what your builder recommends.

    Tires are open, but most will probably be running MG yellows/whites or Hoosier R60’s.  Same tires must be used for the two races – late Saturday and Sunday.


    Make sure you have an airbox – the consensus is that it would be highly unlikely that an open filter would pass 92db.

    Thanks to everybody for a great event. Sorry I had a momentary lapse of reason. :D

    Big THANK YOU to Dean Martin, Mark Morrison, and Jim White for volunteering their time when they should be working on, and racing, their karts instead of making sure that everyone else is taken care of at the track.  Also, I need to thank Anthony Williams for helping me out, even to the last minute before the main so that I got to race!  There are some good people in our club and sport and I am thankful they race with NCK!

    Also – FWIW – I don’t think that we had any significant issues with the noise guidelines in the 125cc shifter class.  I saw a variety of airboxes (blue Freeline box with two snorkels, black RLV boxes with four snorkels, even one guy who put 33mm snorkels in his RLV box!) and silencers, and I don’t think anyone got flagged.

    So, the next time we go to LS, just get an airbox and your standard silencer (I was running my tried-and-true Swedetech unit) – it’s a great track for shifters!
