January 26, 2014, Victoria (ISN) – Welcome to another fantastic season of karting at Western Speedway in Victoria. We have classes for guys and gals of all age groups and welcome your interest.

If you’re a young gal and want to show the guys that you know how to drive to the checkered flag, then this is the place. Don’t be intimidated, we have novice classes and will walk you through the paces so you’re comfortable on the track. We are passionate about mentoring new participants, young or “young at heart”!

If you’re wanting to get your B.C. driver’s license and want to get great driving experience and helpful advice from others, come out and participate with others your same age.

We’re running 4-strokes and 2-stroke Rotax classes and in case you’re thinking this is “amusement category” equipment just wait till you see the Senior Rotax class put the pedal to the metal down the straights. We’re talking wheel to wheel competition through the chicanes and excitement from the moment the flag drops.

Did you know we have adult classes for karts too? It’s a blast and those cheering from the sidelines have just as much fun as the drivers behind the wheel! The karts were racing on Sunday January 26th and everyone was having a blast.
