2022 CASC-OR Annual Karting Division Report
- Kart racing in Ontario looks to be healthy and growing. Several of the clubs and tracks have seen a growth in their memberships/participants,
- The Karting committee has brought forward a few ideas on rule changes and are hoping that they will be considered for 2023. (l will be in talks with Norman Jennings with regards to these rule changes in the next few weeks), and
- The Karting committee members feel and agree that it is important to have a place to voice their concerns within the region.
Needs to Improve:
- Communications from GDS are sometimes slow and vague on insurance issues,
- Insurance cooperation – without the current provider (Stoneridge) being onside with CASC-OR, it will be next to impossible to get all the clubs and tracks to affiliate with us and hence we will continue to have a disjointed approach to Karting in Ontario, and
- Volunteers/Marshalling – many of the clubs and tracks are suffering from the lack of people to help run a race event. Some are saying they may be forced to cancel events because of it.
2023 Wish List:
- More and better communication coming from GDS, and
- Having the insurance provider support CASC-OR in its efforts to get all clubs and tracks to affiliate with us. Then we can help build and guide the Karting community into a cohesive unit.
2023 Series Schedules:
- Cup Karts Canada are the only series to have posted their schedule for 2023 so far.
