Hello Vt Shifter Kart Racing Family,

It’s been a struggle to get all 10 of our events in with all of the rain on Wed. nights this summer.. Thank you all for sticking in there and being flexible enough to attend when we made last minute changes to be able to get our final 3 makes up completed. It was a little on the brisk side when we finished last night,, but my goodness did we see some really good racing. We were lucky enough to get some great publicity this week as well,,, todays Times Argus had a great picture of our Briggs Jr class breaking the top of the hill.,, follow this link. www.timesargus.com

We also got some great coverage in the St Albans Messenger,, follow this link,


A terrific story about one of our newest racers outlining the reasons and culture you can find at our track. Thank you Dan, Sarah, Will.

Closing out the 2019 season under the lights wasn’t what we have planned but it sure was great. We had a great crowd of spectators and the pits had 25 karts that put on a great show for the spectators,,, Our Cadet A feature event saw first and second place separated by 7/10s of one second..... And in the Briggs Jr Class the first and second place karts were separated by 6/10s of once second. We were treated to some very close finishes last night.. These young drivers were show casing the experience they have learned over the summer.

Most importantly,, we as owners really appreciate the support you all offer each other in the pits when something is broken, or someone can't get their kart to run you all are right there to help a fellow racer get back onto the track and for that,, we are truly grateful.
