Joe Bauhs MotorsportsJB Motorsports has grown from simply helping people at the track, then providing chassis tuning and maintenance services to now being a full service company. Today JB Motorsports is an authorized Intrepid dealer, providing new and used Intrepid chassis and parts support, turnkey engine and chassis packages, track side services, maintenance services, full arrive and drive services and indeed now also offers engine repair and rebuild services. Through some of our associates the team can also provide driver coaching and data analysis at the track.

 

JB Motorsports is here to serve our customers first, not just on club race weekends but also during private test sessions where you just want to get out to the track and test to find the right set-up or work on driving technique. Our team works with the youngest drivers all the way through to seasoned drivers running in Masters classes, but in each case our customers are people who love to race and want to enjoy what they are doing to the fullest.

 At JB Motorsports, our passion is racing, we are here because we love to do this and love to be around other people who share the same passion. For us it's not about the business it's about the friends we make and enjoy being around while doing this! Our focus is to bring quality, fairly priced services and products to the karting community. If you didn't enjoy Karting you wouldn't be doing it, we enjoy helping you so that you can enjoy it even more! This is our motivation.

~ Joe Bauhs.

Ladies Chonda Class Interest, Planning and Test Session Saturday December 6th @ 2pm

Several of our Ladies have expressed interest in putting together a Ladies Only Chonda class for 2015 with perhaps an 8 race schedule throughout the year. The Ladies are planning this as a fun class, low cost and with No Contact! Many of our Ladies are already at the track during race day and feel it is time that they were having part of the fun. If you are interested in this but have not driven in a long time or perhaps have never raced then we are planning to have a Chonda test session for any ladies that may be interested to try a Chonda on Sat 6th Dec at 2pm. If you are interested in this series, or if you can attend the test session, please send a quick note to Linda at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

LADIES, Come on out and lets have some fun!

Beyond this we are asking members who have Chondas that would be prepared to let some of the most important people in our club have a few test sessions on the Saturday, to please bring their Karts out to the track on the Saturday. If you will be bringing a Kart out for the ladies to use please send a quick note to This email address is being protected from spambots.

By popular demand, GCKI is planning to hold the annual Winter-Blast, non-points, fundraiser, fun race.  The planned date is Sunday January 5th.  The event will be conditional upon two factors – the weather and the willingness of people to volunteer.  If the prediction is for rain or temperatures below 45 degrees on Sunday per the “Weather Bug” forecast on Friday January 3rd – the race will be cancelled.

All current 2013 class rules and driver eligibilities will apply to this event.

Additionally, we will need the following positions filled – (2) volunteer corner workers (we already have 1 volunteer), assistant race secretary (wristbands), scales, grid.  Please respond to this posting with your willingness to commit to one of these positions at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  Workers will qualify for 2014 Spring Series worker points for the driver of their choice.  If the roles are not filled by Friday January 3rd with volunteers – the race will be cancelled.
