    • AKRA Season Points are based on Saturday and Sunday classes for all events.  Since there are 5 Weekend events in the 2017 AKRA Road Race Series, there are 10 races counted toward season ending championship awards.  F1 is Saturday class with its own championship points as well as an identical Sunday F2 class, having its own championship points.  Take that into account when entering your race classes.

    • MKC will assign kart race numbers.  This is a safety tracking issue used for Emergency Situations.

    • This is an AKRA Sanctioned event requiring at least a Weekend Membership.  Discount memberships available during online registration process.

You don’t have to be an MKC Member to race with us, but, we’d like  racers to supply a worker to help with each race event.  That worker may be needed for an hour or two, or maybe a whole day.  Areas needing help are pre-race setup, logistics, scales, scoring, registration, safety inspection, parking, transponder tracking, and garage assignments.   Pre-registered full day workers get free pit pass.  Racers and All others are required to pay for pit pass.

Remember:  Your dues help support equipment maintenance, planning activities, and this website.  We need your help and participation to make 2017 MKC events a success.

Thanks
