LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

Was the Tripleheader weekend a blast or what? A big thanks to all the racers, families and volunteers who made the event such a success… especially those who made the trip from New York, New Jersey and beyond. It was great to see our Granite State Kart Championship regulars run so strong with the drivers from the Northeast Shifter Kart Series and Northeast Rotax Max Challenge. Some of the best racing and biggest fields we’ve seen yet.

One thing that came up a few times with our friends from out of state was their pleasant surprise at the lack of exposed walls and the high level of safety at the track. Please let me make this clear to anyone who has had second thoughts about sprint racing at Loudon: THERE ARE NO EXPOSED CEMENT WALLS. We do everything possible to keep karting safe and fun – the way it should be.

On another note from the Tripleheader, you probably noticed the Channel 9 camera crew there filming a segment for “NH Chronicle”. It aired the other night, and was fantastic exposure for NHKA and our sport. A very special thanks to racer Brad Allen for making this PR coup happen. You can check out the show by clicking here.

Another person I’d like to give special thanks to is Doreen Simpson. A long-time NHKA supporter, she has worked the gate, registration and scoring. She has also taken on the roles of photographer and party coordinator, plus she was instrumental in setting up this website and keeping it up to date. Doreen is much more than husband Ron’s crew chief, she is a true friend to karting, and deserving of all our gratitude.

Our next race is on the Hill Course at NHMS Saturday August 27th. Now get off the computer, and out to the garage… it’ll be time to race before you know it!
