Sharpen your tuning skills: July 11 training clinic

Summer is here…and it’s the season for racing! Join us to sharpen your tuning skills at our third training clinic, happening this Saturday, July 11th at 1 pm. Led by training coordinator Kevin Orlop, this clinic will be a hands-on session focusing on the HOW and WHY of kart setup, including a demonstration of scaling and alignment adjustments. This clinic aims to give participants a more thorough understanding of what it takes to put a kart together for maximum performance, and how small adjustments affect what happens on the track. Drivers Nate Shelhart and Brenna Orlop will provide track demonstrations to offer real-time visual feedback of the principles being discussed. The clinic is free to current GVKC members (standard practice / pit pass fees apply). While no advance registration is necessary, we encourage you to fill out our online form to let us know that you’re interested in attending. This allows GVKC to contact you directly with any updates to the schedule or curriculum, and to tailor offerings to fit your specific needs. See you soon! Register for the July 11th training clinic....
