A big "Thank You!" to all the racers that attended Fall 2 and everyone is invited to attend Fall 3 next weekend on August 19th. If you can't make it out to the track be sure to watch the live timing & scoring here on the website with live chat also to give your favorite driver a shout out!
At the club’s May board meeting, membership totals were tallied. As of mid-May, GCKI now enjoys 336 total members (master members and associates.) This far eclipses the club’s old record of 300 total members set in March of 2010 (before the global economic downturn.) It also represents a greater than 10% increase in our total membership from just the start of this year. The surge in membership is attributed to a number of factors – the excitement surrounding the Texas Pro Kart Challenge, the growing field of Chonda and Chonda Cadet classes as well as the hard-work and dedication of a core group of club members to make GCKI the best karting experience in the United States.
GCKI is grateful to all who continue to support the club. Please help spread the word. Like lap records – this is one record, we hope will continue to be broken over and over again!
Thanks to everyone who came out and braved the weather for GCKI's first race of the Fall Season. We had a pretty impressive turn-out all things considered, and those competitors who raced in the changing conditions looked to be having a blast. GCKI is fortunate to have several high-quality photographers supporting us this year. Many thanks to Ryan Hollis from "RTH Photography" and Kenny Lau from "Awesome Shots" who come to the track to shoot the action at GCKI. Please continue to support them by visiting their sites.
Jennifer Vogel of KIAH TV Houston's local Channel 39 came out to Gulf Coast Kartway to feature the kart club on the TV show "Anything That Rolls". Come out to GCKI on a race day to see for yourself how much fun it is to race and watch close open wheel racing at Gulf Coast Kartway. Check out our Race Schedule for race dates. Spectator passes are only $5 per person. We look forward to seeing you at the track!
