6th Annual Vintage Karting Reunion: July 23-25, 2015

6th Annual Vintage Karting Reunion at Avon Kart Speedway

Join us at the Avon Kart Speedway on July 23-25th for the 6th Annual Vintage Karting Reunion, hosted by Genesee Valley Kart Club and the Vintage Karting Association. The VKA seeks to recreate the look and feel of actual karting events of the ’50s through ’80s, including track demonstrations for the enjoyment of spectators and participants.

Open to karts manufactured between 1956 and 1985, the event will feature both a judged kart show and a scored Yamaha trophy class competition.

Schedule of Events:

Thursday, July 23rd [Participants Only]

  • Early arrivals & limited practice

Friday, July 24th – [Participants & Spectators]

  • 8:30 am – 5:00 pm: Registration and practice by class

Spectators: grandstand admission is free, and concessions are available onsite. To walk through the pits to see the karts and chat with their owners, purchase a pit pass ($10 for GVKC members, and $15 for non-members).

And a note to all race fans and friends: during Vintage weekend, the oval racing that GVKC normally hosts on Saturdays will be combined with road course racing on Sunday, July 26th. Stop back on Sunday to enjoy a full day of racing!
