The West Coast Kart Club continues to organize the GMR RACENOW Challenge at Greg Moore Raceway! The series runs in conjunction with all scheduled WCKC race weekends.
The GMR RACENOW! Challenge is designed to accommodate an individual or group that would like the opportunity to race without having to provide all of their own equipment. This is the first time that an official “arrive and drive” series has been offered at Greg Moore Raceway and the introductory price is only $299/day! This fee is payable to the participating dealer before race day.
Drivers will experience the entire race day just as the WCKC members do: practice sessions, 1x 5 minute qualifying session, 1x 12 minute heat race and 1×16 minute main event. The track configuration and direction will be the same as the WCKC membership is racing on that particular weekend. Each driver will race a similar chassis (represented by several reputable brands) that will be equipped with identically prepared engines. These are the same racing karts used by professional series all over the world.
In order to compete in the GMR RACENOW! Challenge, drivers must be at least 15 years of age (or turning 15 years old in the current calendar year) and must pre-register with one of the three kart dealers listed below. Kart availability is “first come, first serve”, so please book early with the kart dealer of your choice!
A damage deposit is required when you book with the kart dealer. The damage deposit will be fully refunded if there is no damage to your kart. If you have booked a kart and you do not attend the race weekend that you requested, your booking deposit will not be refunded. However, if you cannot attend, you may transfer the booking to a friend by contacting the kart dealer before noon on the Thursday of the booked race weekend and providing the friends name and contact number. Your friend must attend and not damage the kart to have your damage deposit fully refunded. Please inquire with the participating dealers for more details.
Kart dealers will supply each driver with the following items:
- Race prepared sprint kart including fuel, spec tires and a transponder bracket.
- Helmet, drivers suit, gloves and rib vest. Transponders will be provided by WCKC.
- Fifteen minute driver briefing before going out on the track and a waiver form.
Please contact one of the following participating dealers if you would like to sign up or inquire about the RaceNow! program:
