Race #3 Make-Up Date Announced

Atlanta Karting Kart Racing

Get ready for a double-header Saturday June 10th!

Race #3 which was postponed because of severe weather will be made up with a doubleheader on Race #4 which is June 10th. Race #3 will be ran as a day race, with one round of practice beginning at 9:30a, immediately followed by qualifying, prefinal, lunch, and then final. There should then be a nice break (with practice time available) before the start or the Race # 4 night program. A full schedule will be posted soon.

Racers who were registered for Race #3 will be all set and will not need to register again for the day portion of the event. Racers who did not originally register for Race #3 will have the option to add that part of the doubleheader in the registration process for Race #4.

Registration for Race #4 will open on May 31st. We encourage everyone to please register early, as doing so certainly improves racer turnout.

We appreciate everyone’s patience while we worked out the details on this event. Have a safe and fun-filled Memorial Day weekend.

GSKA Tire Treatment Policy

Atlanta Karting Kart Racing

As announced earlier this year, GSKA has revised it’s tire treatment policy. We ask that all competitors review and make themselves familiar with the GSKA Tire Treatment Policy.

It has always been GSKA’s goal to insure a fair and level playing field for competitors of all experience levels. We feel a simple and clear policy on tire treatment is key to ensure a level playing field.

GSKA TWO ‘O SIX Money Race Wrap-UP

Atlanta Karting Kart Racing

Congratulations to the 2 winners of the Two O’ Six Tournament!

Roberts Kart Shop LO206 Senior – Joseph Skaggs

LO206 Sportsman – Tanner Carter

GSKA would like to thank all the racers who showed up for this head-to-head battle, many of you had breakout days in terms of lap times and some recording their first wins in their brackets! It certainly was an exciting day with several of the brackets needing to go to a tie breaker third session. In a race that rewarded consistency, precision and speed the two winners raced their way through the brackets never wavering to the pressure. Both took home trophies and money for their efforts.

Thanks to a generous donation from Mark Skaggs, there was a Sportsman Shootout money race at the end of the day. Once again Tanner Carter won the shootout and swept the day. Elijah Skaggs came in second followed closely by Peyton Bridges.

This day would not have been nearly as much fun had it not been for some “innocent by-standers” jumping in to help our race crew with the untraditional race day activities. Chasity Bridges, Clint Hall, Cody Hall, Cale Hall, Melanie Walker, Bob Barthelemy, and Steve Roberts we thank you! Hopefully I haven’t forgotten anyone. It is great people like this that make GSKA the best place to race!

We look forward to seeing everyone at the next race April 22.  Register Today!
