  • Volunteer Policy: WRKC is a non-profit and completely run by volunteers. We rely on our members to help with all areas of running a race day, this is from track set up to track tear down. With volunteers helping this allows us to keep are race day fee’s considerably lower than any other track in Ontario. We will be enforcing rule 14.8 this year as noted below.

Welcome to all New and Returning Members

Welcome back to all returning WRKC members, and welcome to Race Day 1 for all new members.  The start of the season is always an exciting time.  For all returning WRKC members we are sure that you all remember how stressful the first race day can be.   We ask that you keep your eyes open for new members that may look like they could use a little help.  If you have a new club member or visitor pitting close to your pit area please help them keep track of what classes are up next and where we are at with the race day.  It happens every year that new members miss one or more sessions.  Let’s see if this year we can ensure no one misses a session because the last track of when their class was on the track.

For new members and visitors announcements are made through out the day stating what class is up next, and what class is on pre-grid using the clubs public address system (the announcements can be received on any am/fm radio, the frequency is posted at the container).  You should have your kart, and driver ready to go on the track, at the grid, when your class is on pre-grid.  When you hear the class before yours called to be on pre-grid that is the time to start making your way to the grid area to ensure you don’t miss your session.  The most important think we can’t stress enough is the club is fortunate to have a lot of very experienced members, and takes great pride in a long track record of help new racers.  If you have any questions please make sure you ask any club member for help.  If they don’t have an answer they will be able to get you connected with someone who does.  ENJOY YOUR RACE DAY.

Note:  Not only is it the first race day for the drivers and crew it’s also the first race for many of our volunteers, a quick thanks for helping out goes along way to make their day more enjoyable and make them want to come back for the next race day.   With new people in many key roles it is to be expected there will be some hiccups  as the day goes on, the best way to minimize them is to offer to help where you can.
