Update on the 2018 Inter-Club Championship

 

Now that the other regional and national series have solidified their schedules, we have made three date changes to accommodate racers and eliminate overlap. The February 11th race at GCKI has been moved up a week to February 4th to eliminate a conflict with the SKUSA Winter-tour. The August 25 SpeedSportz club race has been moved up to August 18th as the Texas Sprint Race Series will be at GCKI the weekend of August 25th. The third change is the October 14th Series race at GCKI has been moved up to October 7th to eliminate a conflict with a TSRS race on the 14th. The updated schedule is re-posted below.

Scoring, awards and classes for the Greater Houston Race Series

The good news is there is no added step or cost to race the Greater Houston Race Series. Just sign up for the designated local club race in a recognized class and you will be scored for the championship. Final standings for the GHRS will be based on the total points from the best four of the five designated races from each track (4 of 5 from GCKI, 4 of 5 from SpeedSportz). Awards will be presented at the last series race at SpeedSportz on October 27.

The classes that will be eligible for awards for the Greater Houston Race Series are those that are common to both local track series. Those are as follows:

Classes

Kid Kart Age 5 thru 8 BOX Stock Honda Engine GXH50 only
     
SKUSA Classes
