“2017 karting schedule is now posted on the Schedule page !!”
Due to the recent trend of poor participation when the weather is not ideal we have decided to cancel the Nov 19, 2016 event.
A number of our die-hard regulars have indicated that they will not be able to attend the event; if you would like to be included in future decisions please feel free to leave your email during sign-in or contact us personally or using the Facebook page. We have carried on through rain, snow, or shine in the past and would like to continue doing so in the future. Your support is appreciated.
Thanks for understanding, The Victoria Karting Team
Weather permitting, our next event is scheduled for Saturday December 10, 2016
Welcome to kart racing on Vancouver Island!
Join us at Western Speedway to cheer the competitors on to Victory Lane.
We have classes for guys and girls of all age groups and welcome your interest. If you're a young gal and wanna show the guys you know how to drive to the checkered flag, this is the place. Don't be intimidated, we have novice classes and will walk you through the paces so you're comfortable on the track. We are passionate about mentoring new participants, young or "young at heart"!
If you're wanting to get your B.C. driver's license and want to get great driving experience and helpful advice from others, come out and participate with others your same age.
We're running 4-strokes, 2-stroke Rotax, and other classes and in case you're thinking this is "amusement category" equipment just wait till you see the Senior Rotax class put the pedal to the metal down the straights. We're talking wheel to wheel competition through the chicanes and excitement from the moment the flag drops.
Did you know we have adult classes for karts too? It's a blast and those cheering from the sidelines have as much fun as the drivers behind the wheel !
Some of our competitors go on to enjoy racing beyond karting! If you visit us on a race day you might see Josh Reaume, our local karting guy that is now a NASCAR driver. Josh still enjoys "wrenching" on karts as well as putting on his racing suit and testing his skills against other Senior Class drivers.
