2017 Pre-Season News

MyLaps X2 Transponder SystemTransponders

GVKC is now able to support the latest MyLaps X2 Kart transponders! Bundled with a subscription to a personal MyLaps account where drivers can access their data, these transponders offer pit crews the capability of viewing lap times on a connected device. If you’d like to upgrade, we encourage you to get a transponder before the season starts and get your account set up before opening weekend. The club will be putting and order in for the X2 transponders for $115 each. Please let Shaylan Johnson know if you would like us to order one for you. Shaylanj84@gmail.com

For drivers who do not wish to upgrade at this time, the club’s existing TX160 transponders will be available again this 2017 season for a rental fee of $5 per day. If you choose to rent you will be required to purchase a transponder holder. The holders will be available at the registration building for $8.



Please check out the 2017 Rulebook as there are a few changes that have been made since the Membership Meeting regarding Classes and Safety Equipment.
