    • US 12 Entrance gate is open 24 Hours.   Admittance by Pit Pass after racing activities.

    • Pit Passes sold only at US 12 Gate, 6:30 AM – 7:00 PM Saturday and Sunday

    • 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.

2017 M.I.S. Schedule

We have selected two race events at MIS for 2017.

2017 Race Dates:

May 20 & 21, 2017

September 16 & 17, 2017

These will be run as A.K.R.A. sanctioned events.

More details will follow but at this time, the daily schedule and classes will be very close to those we have enjoyed in 2016

2017 Michigan Kart Club Race Events

 

Waterford Hills Race Course Dates:  None for 2017

The Waterford parent club added race events to its own schedule in 2017 which left us with race date offerings in May and September which conflict with the M.I.S. events.  No other weekends or single days were available.
Perhaps in 2018 we will be able to re-offer an opportunity to race at Waterford.

2017 MKC Membership

Annual Dues:   $20 per Master Member

Associate members in same household, Free

Pre-registered full day workers get free pit pass.

Racers and All others are required to pay for pit pass.

Racer Members will receive a class entry discount.

In order for these events to be successful for racers and support crews, we need volunteer workers. Each racer needs 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, Race logistics, Scales, Scoring, Registration, Safety inspection, Parking, Transponder tracking and Garage assignments. Please indicate your preference on this form and follow-up with the name of the volunteer if you have one at this time.  Be sure to sign-up for membership before the season starts to get your discount code for race entries.
