Flood Damage at GCKI

First off, I would like to thank all that participated in our last race and experienced the new facility. The Hard work of Bill and Becky Choice in getting the barriers to protect the racers and facilitate race day kart and traffic flow is much appreciated. It appears all went very well through out the day.


However, after last Sunday’s race, the rains began heavy and the end result was the entire GCKI complex was under water except for the track surface itself. We had 6” of water into the clubhouse, and we have begun to clean it up (Thanks Bill). We appear to have not suffered any major damage as all electrical and equipment is still functional. We lost paper goods and there is still a wait and see on the sheet rock. The A/C and fans have been turned on to facilitate the drying of the building. The septic system will need to be evaluated as it too was under almost a foot of water. There is still considerable water at the perimeter of the property and the ground is very soft. Please use caution if using the track as there may be soft spots or snakes in areas not anticipated. We will work to prepare the property for our next race on May 1st.

GCKI Participates In Briggs & Stratton Weekly Racing Series

BSRacingSeries300Gulf Coast Karters is participating in the Briggs & Stratton Weekly Racing Series again in 2016!

Have you ever wondered how you stand up against other racers in your state or region of the country? That is the premise behind the Briggs & Stratton Weekly Racing Series. “We wanted to incorporate the fun and excitement of racing the 206 crate engine with a program that supports both the racers and local tracks running it” stated David Klaus, Director- Briggs & Stratton Racing.

See how you rate against other LO206 racers in our region. GCKI will be sending the race results to Briggs & Stratton after each race so they can enter the results into their database which keeps track of the region's points standings.

Racers in each region will be competing for over $11,000 in generators and pressure washers. “Great prizes along with bragging rights are on the line as well as every racer’s cumulative points will go towards crowning our 2015 ‘Top 206’ tracks.”


More information on the series and prizes is on the Briggs & Stratton Weekly Racing Series website http://www.briggswrs.com
