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....

Weigh in on Reverse Racing

Thank you to everyone who participated in our email poll to let us know whether you’re interested in racing the track in reverse this season. Results from our initial poll: 8 “Yes” votes 4 “No” votes The board has not yet made a decision on whether/how to schedule reverse racing dates in 2015 — most critically, because we are still awaiting blue bags that would safely support different racing configurations. We also want to carefully consider how reverse racing would impact attendance. So far, we are hearing that a majority of members think it would be fun and challenging to try racing with a new configuration. Yes/no answers are not clearly divided by class. If you have not yet weighed in, please let us know what you think: Pop-Up Poll: Tell us whether you’re interested in racing in reverse this season....
