HCKC Racer’s and Families,
We have several changes and events coming up over the next couple months. Please take a moment to read:
*Race Day September 23rd– We will be racing in reverse again to allow for the build-up of rubber on the track as well as give everyone more practice before Kartoberfest.
*Race Day October 7th– We are moving the October 14th race to October 7th to prevent back to back weekends of racing and to not overlap with Pro-kart.
*Race Day October 21st– We have moved our races from the October 28th to the 21st in order to not compete with the TSRS races.
*Kartoberfest is November 11th and 12th. This is a two-day event with racing in both directions. Day 1 will be racing clockwise and for day two, we will reverse the direction to counter clockwise.
*HCKC is pre-selling shirts online and at the track. These shirts are on a high quality, light weight performance cotton and will be available in Youth XL to XXL size for $20. All pre-order must be placed by October 24th and you will receive your orders on the morning of November 11th.
*We are also pre-selling Smokey Mo’s BBQ plates for our Saturday evening BBQ. Advance purchase plates are $8 online and must be purchased by November 3rd. They will be $10 if purchased at the track the day of the event.
*We are also collecting donations for the live Auction on Saturday the 11th. Karting parts, gift cards, baked goods, and hand-made gifts, all welcomed. If your business is interested in sponsor this event, please contact our PR Director, Trina Maxey, at email@example.com.
*End of the Year Awards- December 10th at the Landa Haus. A BBQ lunch will be provided by Smokey Mo’s BBQ, our official track sponsor. Tickets and details for this event will be announced soon.
Hill Country Kart Club offers exciting racing action for racers and spectators alike. This half mile paved (concrete) sprint kart track offers up to ten turns, nearly 525 foot of length on the back straightaway and a challenging infield section that promotes plenty of passing. This club run facility has been racing in New Braunfels for over 25-years with features including: three spectator grandstands, BBQ snack shack, restrooms, picnic tables, and friendly racers willing to show anyone the sport of karting. Races are normally held the 2nd and 4th weekends each month, with the only exception being no racing in December – check the schedule to the right for upcoming races and times. For a complete listing of classes and more information about the track, club, or sport of karting see the menu options above. The track is conveniently located 1/2 mile north off of Interstate 35, and only short drive from Austin or San Antonio. Hill Country Kart Club is the home track of several IKF national championship winners! Come out and see why champion drivers get their start in karting, and then continue karting to hone their skills and stay fit. Spectator seating is free, pit passes are $5.00 for those who wish to enter the pits to see the karts and talk with the teams.
