Westwood has just completed new curbing and the procurement of 400 Scribner barriers to augment this new 2000 ft technical sprint track.

Please join us this weekend May 22-23 at our club race for an excellent opportunity to learn this new track.

We will respond to your questions on the WKA website www.westwoodkarting.org as quickly as possible. Below are info points that should address some questions for those planning to come up:

Pre-Registration - The pre-registration form is on the Northwest Gold Cup website. To reduce morning lineups we request that you pre-register if possible.

Border - Minimum requirements this year will be a Passport, Passport Card or Nexus card. Washington State residents can also use the Enhanced Drivers License.
