About GVKC

The Genesee Valley Kart Club is one of the longest running asphalt tracks around being established in 1959!  We are located on Route 15 in Avon, 1/2 mile south of Routes 5 & 20.

 

Kart racing is not only fun, it is the training for tomorrow’s professional drivers. A very short list of drivers who started in karts includes Emerson Fitipaldi, Scott Pruett, Al Unser Jr., Alain Prost, Lake Speed and Michael Andretti. Kart racing gives you the opportunity to learn about all aspects of racing vehicle dynamics, engine tuning and proper driving techniques.

The GVKC is a family oriented organization. Children may begin racing at age 5.  We also have racers in their 60’s too! Many families help out during the race day as “pit crews” for the karters. You’ll see family members keeping lap times, working on engines, helping the racers suit up before the race, and lots of other activities.

Karting is one of the least expensive forms of motor sports. Good, competitive used equipment is how most people choose to begin. Depending on class and tire used, you could expect to use 1 to 4 sets of tires per year. Under normal conditions, the weekly maintenance costs are low.

Safety is #1. All karts are inspected each race day to make sure they are race ready. In addition, all drivers are required to wear full face helmets with the latest safety rating, protective clothing, gloves, high top shoes and a neck collar.

Saturday’s racing includes the Oval Course and Sunday’s racing includes the Sprint Course.  Admission is FREE to the grandstands. Spectators can enter the pits during afternoon intermission but must leave when features start.  They are also welcome after racing is over and the club holds trophy call.
