Oh Canada! Gold Cup Round 5 Pre Race Report


On July 23 - 25 region 6 racers will once again make the trip north to Canada. There they will meet at the famed kart track in Chilliwack, British Columbia recently renamed “Greg Moore Raceway” in honor of the noted Canadian racer who suffered a tragic death in 1999 at the California Speedway in Fontana.

This race promises to be a good one, perhaps the best to date as we enter the second half of the 2010 season. Rumors abound of notable Canadian kart racers who may drop in, as well as certain Americans just back from the Rotax Grand Nationals in New Castle, Indiana.

Those Canadians are fast to be sure, and of course Team Italkart will be looking to dominate the IAME and SHIFTER classes as they make plans to defend what must be considered their home turf. Anyway you break this down it looks to be a great race, one you definitely won’t want to miss. So whatever you do don’t let the standings fool you, with the allowed one drop factored in we have some very real points battles at hand as the race teams prepare for round 5. Northwest Karting News will be on hand for the three day event, covering all on track action, as well as driver interviews, and photos.
