2021 WRKC Rules
The 2021 WRKC rules book is currently being finalized. A published rule book will be posted to the WRKC website. Hard copies of the rule books will be available at track. Some notable rules are listed below:
- 10.1 Class Structure: The weight for Masters will be increased to 375lb for both Honda and Briggs & Stratton engines. This weight is typical for Masters classes in Ontario.
- 16.1 Tires: Vega W5 tires will be the only wet tire allowed for all classes. This was intended to be implemented in 2020, but due to Covid-19, it was postponed to 2021
- 22.2 Nosecone: Jr. Light, Jr. Heavy, Sr and Masters classes require “push-back” nosecone mounting kits (1/CA/20 01/01/ET). This was intended to be implemented in 2020, but due to Covid-19, it was postponed to 2021
- 23.2 Rear Bumpers: Steel rear bumpers will not be allowed in 2021. The 2020 rule book outlined that steel rear bumpers will not be allowed after 2020. Plastic full width rear protection will be required on all karts.
WRKC is currently looking for corporate, class and race day sponsors for the 2021 season. WRKC relies on sponsorship to provide affordable racing to the members. A revised sponsorship proposal has been added to the website. If you or someone you know is interested in sponsoring, please contact Jason Bowden 289-259-7296. [email protected]
The 2021 WRKC schedule is currently being finalized. WRKC’s schedule has to be coordinated with Flamboro Speedway’s race schedule to prevent conflicts. The delay is due to the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic. WRKC intends to have a published schedule in the near future. All track configurations and race day formats are to be determined.
WRKC has purchased 2 8′ x 10′ storage containers that will be rented to members. The storage containers are intended to allow members the ability to store their karts and equipment on-site without requiring weekly transport.
