The Club is also in need of a Tech Director for 2016, so if anyone has interest, please forward the name to any of the executive for consideration. The executive would also like to remind its members that there has been much interest to the local Edmonton kart dealers for potential new joining members acquiring some used equipment. Please make use of our classified section to advertise your good used race equipment, karts, motors etc. so these new members can start off their racing careers on a less expensive note.
The 2016 EDKRA Race Schedules are out for the weekend events as well as the DD2 Wednesday events! I am very excited for this year as I feel we will be the benchmark to follow for all clubs across Canada and another very successful EDKRA season. I am expecting new class champions and a great entire season.
