Race Day Sponsor
Network Sewer and
Waterman

Network Sewer and Watermain Ltd. (NSW) specializes in the development, construction and servicing of municipal water mains, sewers, road works, earth moving, landscaping and demolition.  NSW is an operating division of the Network Group of companies that include divisions specializing in Underground utilities, Sand and Gravel, and Express Plumbing and Electrical.  The company was founded in 1994 when Donald Medeiros took over the family business at the age of 18.  

The last 2 decades have seen a rapid growth of the business.   The Network Group has been awarded numerous multi-million dollar infrastructure contracts and their staff now exceeds 150 employees.   Their success is attributed to the simple and fair way they do business.  The NSW experienced management group is able to accurately estimate man hours, and the resources required to create a budget that allows them to complete projects on time, and ensure the client will be happy they awarded the contract to NSW.

Like all well managed construction businesses to be successful the well being of employees and providing a safe working environment is essential.  A key to their success has been making sure core values such as public safety, employee safety, and doing it right the first time are planned into every project.

The WRKC thanks NSW for their support of the club by being today’s race day sponsor.

Waivers 

Make sure to complete your waiver before coming to the track!
Waivers must be completed electronically for this race season by all participants, mechanics, and volunteers – if you are going to be on the grid at all this season you must complete a waiver! We will not be accepting any paper waivers.
 
Annual waivers can be completed at https://waterloorkc.speedwaiver.com/nigjl
 
Please be sure to complete this waiver and bring a screenshot of the confirmation to the track each race day. We will be checking that waivers are completed at registration each morning and handing out wrist bands to drivers, mechanics, and volunteers that have completed the waiver.
 
We will be checking wrist bands to ensure that anyone who is on the grid or track has completed a waiver and entering the grid without signing the waiver will have repercussions. 

 Important housekeeping items…

  • Pre-Tech form: the pre tech form has updated for 2022 and posted on WRKC website under documents, please make sure you print some off and hand in each event prior to going on track.
  • Registration: Registration on a regular race day will open at 7am. At this time, we will be only accepting cash or cheque at registration. Registration fees: $65.00 for a registered member, $85.00 non-members
  • Top 5 Drivers must go straight to Tech after scaling their Kart
  • Covid 19 Update: Wearing of masks is not mandatory, but we ask all participants to respect those that choose to do so.
  • 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. See website for our complete 2022 Rule book under the document tab. 14.8 Volunteering: It is the responsibility of the drivers and/or family members (for drivers under the age of 12) to volunteer for 15 minutes assisting in the weekly tasks required to operate a race day. One class will be selected weekly for mandatory participation (i.e. Track clean-up). Failure to comply may result in a 10-point penalty.

Rules Reminders
Hopefully it doesn’t happen often but every racer during the season will probably end up stopping on course at some point.  To ensure the safety of all race participants every driver needs to be familiar with rule 4.20 (Stopping on Course) of the 2022 WRKC Rule Book.  As a reminder we have summarized the rule.

  1. Competitors are to assist with the removal of their kart from the track as quickly as possible if safety permits.
  2. Karts may not be serviced or repaired within 3 kart lengths of the racing surface.
  3. Competitors forced to stop on the racing surface during practice or an event, the driver must raise their arm to signal approaching competitors that they are immobile.
  4. Any violation of a rule stated in  4.20 may result in disqualification from the heat.
  5. Competitors stopped on the race surface must always wear a helmet.  This means that until they have walked back into the pit area they must be wearing their helmet.

Note: The above is a summary of the rule. The WRKC 2022 rule book should be consulted if you have any questions regarding the rule or require more information.
