2014 Racing Schedule

The 2014 racing schedule can be found here.

Reaching Out

I am reaching out to the membership for some help with filling 2 very important positions. We are looking for a Race Director and a Head Flagger. If anyone is interested in either position or knows someone that would be, please contact me as soon as possible @ 329-6178. It would be nice to have more than one person for each of these positions so that they could alternate race days and not be obligated for every Sunday. Please call me with any questions or thoughts.

Thanks,

Jeff Stark

Rochester Auto Show

Hi Everyone,

It has been along time since any new posting has been done but don’t worry, your 2014 Board members have been meeting regularly and are working very hard to accomplish many important tasks. It is still a little early but as soon as I have some solid information I will bring all of you up to date. The one thing that is currently being planned is the GVKC promotional booth at the Greater Rochester Auto Show. We did this for the first time last year and it was very beneficial for our club. This year’s event is February 27 through March 1, 2014 at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center.

We will be allowed to show 3 karts at the show. It is very important that we show a variety of karts and with only being able to bring 3 , we want to have 1) KID Kart, 1)4 Cycle Kart and 1) 2 Cycle Kart. It would really be nice for the 2 Cycle Kart to be a TAG. It is also extremely important for these karts to be in pristine condition, as they are a show piece.

The most important part of this show is we to have more volunteers to share manning the booth than we did last year. With only a few dedicated people it made for some VERY LONG days for 2 or 3 that did multiple shifts. As members of this club it is important that we all share in the volunteering of such great opportunities like this show. The exposure that we get from this is HUGE.

Please step up and volunteer to take a shift or two and help promote our club. You can contact either myself or Shawn Callahan for more information. We are in the process of updating our new board contact info on our website. Shawn’s is not currently listed. I would recommend that you contact me @ 585-329-6178 and I will either help you or I can give you his contact info.

Thanks and I will keep all of you informed,

Jeff Stark

Kid kart recap 2013

Our GVKC kid karters are undeniably cute and fun to watch. Its great to watch these 5 to 7 year olds develop their driving skills over the season. Nathan Vetter put together this great video as a recap of the 2013 season for us to enjoy.

For parents who are interested in getting their little racers started in this hobby, I found this great article to get started. Before buying any equipment to start at our club, be sure you read up on the regulations in our rule book.
Thank you Nathan, and we look forward to seeing the pink pigtails and blue mowhawk next year!

UPDATE ROCHESTER INDOOR EVENT

Hi everyone,

I mentioned a few days ago that I would do some research about the Rochester Indoor race event. Well I have done just that and I was informed that this event, as of right now , will not take place. Apparently the location which was the Dome, was in the process of being sold and the deal fell through. The prospective new owner was all in favor of the race, however the current owner is not. I don’t know any of these individuals involved or their reasons for their points of view. All I can say at this point is if something changes, I will let everyone know as soon as I can.

I hope ALL of you enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday.

Thanks,

Jeff Stark
