SUMMIT POINT, W. Va. – The Woodbridge Kart Club will open their 2021 season April 17-18 at the club’s longtime home, Summit Point Motorsports Park in the panhandle of West Virginia about 15 miles northeast of Winchester, Va.
The first event of WKC’s new season will come at the Shenandoah Circuit, a 1.6-mile course that for most feels more like a big sprint track than an enduro-style circuit. The Shenandoah Circuit opened in 2005 and WKC has been splitting their time at Summit Point between it and the traditional 2.0-mile Main Circuit since.
This year, the club will host two events at each circuit between April and August and close the year with a combined event with AKRA and the Dart Kart Club at Pittsburgh International Race Complex in September.
WKC opened pre-registration for the April Shenandoah event on Monday.
The season opener is a Saturday / Sunday two-day show with at least a couple rounds of group practice each morning before racing. Click here for the weekend schedule.
Look for the CIK LO206, Stock Honda and IAME Sprint divisions to be the largest and most competitive. The event will serve as a good warmup for the AKRA / WKC national May 22-23 at Summit’s Main Circuit, which will attract many more of the traditional laydown and sprint-enduro racers in addition to 206, shifter and TaG CIK entrants.
WKC always puts on professionally-run events with an experienced team of officials and a very family-oriented, friendly atmosphere. If you have this mid-April weekend open on your 2021 calendar, definitely give this race consideration.
