2017 Class Requirements Finalized; Rule Book Cover Selected

The rules ballots have been counted and the cover selected for the 2017 Badger Kart Club Competition Rules, Regulations, Procedures & By-Laws. The winning cover design was submitted by Danny Corcoran. All of the proposed ballot measures passed, and the Competition Class Requirements listed on our website have been updated accordingly.

Important note regarding tire treating for 2017 and beyond: Tire treatment is prohibited at Wolf Paving Raceway. The elimination of minimum durometer rules from the LO206 classes does not mean tire treating has been allowed in those classes. Tests used for the presence of tire treatment are at the discretion of the tech officials and may include durometer tests. Violators will receive a non-droppable DQ and suspension of 30 days or 2 points races, whichever is greater. Races missed due to suspension cannot be used as drop races. Wire brushing or scraping to remove debris or rubber build-up is not considered tire treatment and is allowed.

 

See What Badger Kart Club is All About

If you've just heard of kart racing, or karting, and you're not really sure what it is, this video will give you an idea. Many people think of the karts you see at amusement parks or in Wisconsin Dells when they think go karts, but our racers take it to another level. Badger Kart Club members race purpose-built racing machines powered by 2-cycle or 4-cycle engines capable of speeds over 60 miles per hour. Our members all own their own karts and equipment. Our members participate in races from our the club points series, with some participating in races at the top levels of the sport. If you've seen the show "Kart Life," you've seen some Badger Kart Club members.

Want to see what it's all about? Come out as a spectator to one of our races. Admission is free, you can bring your whole family. Enjoy a picnic on our grounds, or get a bite to eat at our Karter's Kafe. There is no cost to mingle in the paddock with the drivers and mechanics and ask them questions.

 

New Member Referral Program

Badger Kart Club will be starting a new referral rewards program for members who recruit other members. If an existing member refers a new member, the existing member will receive a free membership for the next season. Additionally, existing members will receive 5 free practice/pit passes when the new member competes in 2 championship races and an additional 10 free practice/pit passes when the new member completes in a total of 8 championship races. There is no limit on the number of referrals. For additional details, click to download this information sheet.
