Start Your Engines!

We are ready to go for this Saturday’s season opening practice day at Canaan Motor Club. We will have a great turnout, so thank you all for registering. We will use Half-Track 1 clockwise. This is the configuration to the left of the grid and around the infield garage.

Our event schedule will largely be the same as last year. You are invited to arrive Friday evening 5-8pm to drop your trailer, set up your pit and get your kart inspected. Camping is $25 cash per tent, car, trailer or RV. (We collect this fee on behalf of the track.)

Anyone under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or an adult with a completed Temporary Guardianship Letter.

No alcohol consumption by ANYONE until after on-track activity has concluded for the day. No other mind-altering substances allowed at any time.

No working on or parking karts on paved areas. All work and parking must be done on the grassy areas.

No starting race engines at any time Friday or until after the drivers meeting Saturday.

Please clean your pit area completely and take all trash with you when you leave the track. Our goal is to always leave the facility even cleaner than when we arrived.

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you at the track!
