Late Breaking Northwest Karting Challenge News!

Posted 3/28/12

We have all heard the phrase life is full of surprises and this year’s NorthWest Karting Challenge has a surprise for you as well – All Oregon State! Oregon Pinot Noir’s are some of the best in the world and this year we can say the same for our kart racing. Recently, PGP Motorsports Park in Washington announced that they will be taking 2012 off from competitive 2-stroke racing while a new Master Plan for the neighboring Pacific Raceway’s is developed. So in order to make sure the regions Shifter Kart and Rotax pilots are taken care of, the 2012 season is now going to be split between 2 Oregon State tracks; PARC and Medford.

PGP Motorsports Park operates under the neighboring Pacific Raceway’s Conditional Use Permit and what may sound like a short term problem is actually a long term gain. The King County Council just past by a 7-2 vote to support an all new Master Plan that allows legislation for expansion of facilities and hours of operations along with other customer friendly amenities that will put the entire complex on par with the best in all of North America. Although PGP is a completely separate company from PRW’s, the common CUP keeps them married and in any good marriage there is some give and take. One of the immediate benefits of the give and take is PGP extended their own lease to 2039, 10 additional years of operations.

So what does this mean for the newly realigned NorthWest Karting Challenge (NKC) Series? It means some temporary changes will see some long-term benefits in the future. It means theNorthWest Karting Challenge will continue with some minor adjustments for this year. The series will now become a 3 weekend, 6 round series. It means the added opportunity to go race in Medford OR on their newly repaved track. It means the NKC will still have Rotax recognition and all the SKUSA benefits it originally offered. It means the NKC will still offer the regions Shifter Kart and top Rotax racers all the value it always has. It means this year is still going to be a great year. And who knows, next year we may be expanding to a three track series – extending the “I-5 Corridor” concept anyone?

So what are the details? The first weekend scheduled for PARC on April 14-15 has been cancelled. This is actually due to the flooding issues Mother Nature is throwing at PARC and not at anything else. Here we are on Spring Break, in late March, and we are under water again. After completing a grueling and thorough clean up effort earlier in the month, we will begin Round 2 of our heavy weight battle with Mother Nature sometime this next week and expect to get the upper hand on her. So the new NKC 2012 schedule will look like this:

Rounds 1-2. May 19-20. PARC. (previously scheduled PGP date)
Rounds 3-4. July 7-8. Medford OR. (previously schedule TBA date)
Rounds 5-6. August 25-26. PARC. (previously scheduled PARC date)

As you can see, the dates have remained the same and are still conflict free with other events in the region. You will just have to re-program your GPS systems for directions for one weekend. Stay tuned for more info coming shortly. Let’s make sure this year is a great one. Thanks to everyone’s support and look forward to seeing all of you at the track…

2011 Fuel Spec Rules for PARC

In yet another attempt to control the cost of racing for racers in our area, PARC has made arrangements to make available a lower cost racing fuel for the Rotax classes and others. The OSKCS and the I-5 Corridor Series will spec the PARC 92 Fuel for the Rotax classes for 2011. The PARC 92 fuel is a 92 octane blended fuel that does NOT contain Ethanol. This fuel will burn very much like the National SPEC Rota fuel MS 93, but at about half the cost. With the US Rotax Grand Nationals in Utah this July, many of the area racers will be attending. We wanted to utilize a fuel that would burn much like the National fuel, making the adjustment very easy for the racers. The cost of the MS 93 would have been somewhere around $12.50-$13.00 this year. PARC can offer this new fuel at around $5.50 to $6.00, saving competitors over half. The PARC 92 Fuel will be available at PARC for the entire year and PARC is making arrangements to make this fuel available to other kart shops. The fuel will also work for the PARC SuperSport 200 (PARC CLONE) classes as well.

    Hello my name is Teresa Jackman, I have a garage that has about 150/200 tires stored. I need to get rid of them asap. I was hoping you would have some use for some/all of them on your race track… I have very little cash to work with, so the dump is out of the question. If you dont have any use for them, could you possibly direct me to one who might take these off of my hands. My PHONE NUMBER: 9712181012, E-MAIL: tjsalem44@yahoo.com, Thank you, Teresa Jackman
