2016 Michigan Kart Club Race Events

2016 M.I.S. Dates:   May 21 & 22 and September 24 & 25

Dust off your ride and come race with us for Spring.  We added a race date in May to kick off the season.  This event replaces the Grattan Raceway, Spring race which was held in Mid May during the last 4 seasons.  We’re repeating our popular daily schedule and will be tweaking class offerings as AKRA and MKC update their rules.

We are exploring an opportunity to modify the track layout for the Spring M.I.S. Event while returning to our tried and true layout in September.  Stay tuned for more details.

So, come join us for both the Spring and the Fall Classic at Michigan International Speedway.  We’ve secured the date later in September which promises fewer conflicts with other road races like Gingerman.

Friday Practice Day is not offered at each event because not  enough racers will commit to a full practice day.  So, we will offer a 4 hour practice session on Saturday, followed by a full schedule of race classes that day.  Sunday’s schedule will be compressed to allow folks to depart mid afternoon with enough time to travel to their home destination.  Overall, this schedule will offer the best value in Road Racing, offering  maximum track time for a 2 day weekend event.  A price increase will occur for some items in 2016.

Online Registration is scheduled for March 1.


Waterford Hills Race Course Dates:  None for 2016

The Waterford parent club has added race events to its own schedule in 2016 which left us with race dates offerings in May and September which conflict with the M.I.S. events.  No other weekends or single days were available.

Perhaps in 2017 we will be able to re-offer an opportunity to race at Waterford.

2016 Grattan Race

It appears that there will only be one Grattan Karting Road race for 2016.  Conversation with track manager Sam Faasen on 11/23/15 revealed that CES will host an event July 9 & 10, 2016.
