Visiting Racers

Kawartha Durham Kart Club welcomes all racers to our events. As a visitor you must present your current ASN club race license at registration.

Race fees are the same as our members (2014 - $70) and there is no limit to the number of events you can attend. As a non-member you will not receive any championship points for races entered. If your club races on a different spec tire (we run Vega Blues) you can use them at our races. The Kawartha facility is easy on tires and with the right set-up we have found most tires can run competitively.

Saturady events start on-track at 9:30 am, Sundays at 10:00.

The Kawartha Durham Kart Club organizes a series of championship races for kart racers ages 8 and up in several classes determined by age, weight and engine type. It’s easy to join and all are welcome. Refer to our FAQ section for more info. The best way to enjoy 100km/h is at 1” above the ground on the fast straights and high banking of Kawartha Downs and Speedway.

If you are just racing for additional track time and experience we hope you will respect our racers who are competing for a championship.

The spec gas station (ESSO) is just south of the track on HWY 28. Spec fuel is Supreme (91 octane). We have lots of paved pit area, grandstands, proper washrooms with running water and the OLG slots are always open! There is no take-out food on site so bring your coolers and bbq. MSM Motorsports is usually on-site at our events for your karting needs.

We ask all participants to have some carpet, cardboard or plastic to put under their kart when changing oil, re-fueling or spraying lubricants.

Briggs racers - we can acommadate you either with our Honda classes or if you bring some friends we will run you as a seperate class (practice or race days).

Two cyle racers - usually we do not have 2 cycle classes. If you can pull three friends with you we will be happy to provide track time for you. Please contact us with your plans ahead so we can put time in our race day for you.
