HCKC Raceway is a club operated kart racing facility with over 26-years of racing action on our classic track. In 2013 the club embarked on a major expansion to the track surface that has double the length of the raceway, racing started on this new part in June. The track now offers up to a 10-turn layout, along with 8 and 6 turn options. While the track is concrete this still offers great grip for the sticky racing tires and leads to a welcome ease of wear. Speeds in some classes can reach over 70mph on the longest layouts, while still keeping the slow speed corners that have always given racers a great challenge.
The racing has been outstanding on the new expansion, with regular passes by the drivers being made in most corners. Due to the way the corners are designed you will see passing attempts made that end up allowing the driver that was just passed to grab the position back by the next corner.
Members of the club get daily access to the track year-round, no engines may be run prior to 9am. and we ask that everyone help keep the facility clean. We have three spectator seating areas, with two of them near the snack shack being completely free. The third set of bleachers near the Marsh hairpin does require the purchase of a $6.00 pit-pass armband, and this seat offers the best view of the track. Watch the karts brake going into the hairpin, and roar back up the hill!
