Hello Vt Shifter Kart Racing Family,

Such a beautiful day yesterday, and we finished racing last night under an almost full big beautiful moon. We were lucky to have 31 karts in the pits making up 7 classes of racers from the young age of 4 up to the experienced age of mid 60s.. I must say that after watching our event last night,, remembering back to what the skill set was for these drivers at the beginning of the season, we are growing a terrific group of racers that will some day move on to some other racing venue that will be pleased to have these drivers with the skill set they are learning.

Congratulations to ALL of our competitors for putting on a good show last night Friends and family come to watch and support our racers, but they also want to see some good racing, not big wrecks. In any form of racing there needs to be some entertainment value to keep people coming back to watch more at future events. Our racers provided that entertainment value last night.

At the beginning of the season, we did allow folks to run new hossier tires they had from last season.. We are now beyond the point of using them and we ALL must be using MG Red tires now. Please be sure you have MG Red tires on your karts for the remainder of the season.

If you, or someone you know is interested in purchasing a new, or slightly used full length race suit, I have 7 of them in various sizes, mostly youth or small adult size. They can be purchased very reasonably priced.

We have a very busy schedule coming up,, next Wed Aug 21 is the ENDURANCE race, for ALL classes,  Shifters will get 20 minutes on the clock and all other classes witll get 10 minutes of green flag racing on the clock..

Then we go to Sunday August 25, our Boulder Classic event. The triple 25s for all classes. pit gates will open at 9:30 am practice will start at 10:30 am ONE QUICK ROUND OF PRACTICE, Then a post time of 11:30 am. Triple 25s for ALL classes,, be sure to check your tires and be sure you have good tires on,,, 75 laps of racing is a lot of laps for all of our racers.
