It's best to contact GPK and find out. I believe 16 years old is the minimum and a G1. I'll find out and post shortly.

Wow two very well attended events. 25 drivers at the first event and 22 at the second event. Also a very competitive field, qualifying at the first event had a time split of only 1.8 seconds from the fastest to the slowest qualifying time out of 25 drivers!!

Results will be posted shortly.

Thank-you all who attended the winter go-kart series this year. It was very successful, and competitive. I'll see you all out at the track in April.
