We offer a wide range of filters, windshield wipers, windshield stone chip repair, transmission flushes, and many other fluid changes and flushes are available.

12/04/13 Race #1 April 15th postponed

The Point Pelee Karting Club regretfully wishes to announce the postponement of Race #1 that was scheduled for this Sunday April 15th.

These decisions are always difficult when we have to rely on weather forecasts . Based on current information available to us at this time, there is a strong indication of rain both Saturday and Sunday, with a high probability of thunder storms and lightning . With many rookie drivers and teams not yet having a chance to get in any practice time this early in the season, we feel this could possibly create some unsafe racing conditions for our first race of the year .

Please check back to the website for more information on the schedule changes .

12/04/09 Race #1 April 15th information

Rookie training has been completed and the teams took advantage of the great weather on the holiday weekend to dial in their karts and shake the cobb webs off . Special thanks to Marrisa Howell , Earl and Dale Lajoie for helping out with the on track Rookie training.

12/03/25 PPKC class structures and competition regulations

The PPKC Board of Directors is pleased to announce the following 2012 documents are now available on the PPKC website:
•Class Structure "what class do I race in" (Click here)
•Competition Regulations "the rules" (Click here)
•Briggs 206 Class Quick Reference “What you need” (Click here)
•Briggs New Claimer Rule "How it works" (Click here)
•Briggs Pricing Courtesy of Pete Rempel "What it Costs" (Click here)
•Printable Race Schedule "When and what Track" (Click here)

You’ll see the new Class Structure allows both Briggs and Honda to compete together in the various 4 cycle Classes. PPKC will use ASN Canada Sporting and Technical Regulations, ASN Honda 4 cycle Technical Rules, and ASN Briggs LO206 Canada Engine Class Rules, for all 4 stroke classes except where amended, supplemented or superseded. We believe the release of the 2012 ASN Briggs and Honda Regulations will provide a more level “playing field”. This will allow occasional or "out of town" Honda racers the opportunity to participate in all PPKC races. Other exciting additions include; Provisional Box Stock Clone Class and a New Briggs Claimer Rule! We’ve had many requests to eliminate Double Point Races. After careful review, we have agreed to eliminate Double Point Races and have restructured the Clubs Participation Point System. Racers who have a higher level of Club Race Participation will now receive bonus points based on an escalated scale for each day & class entered. Please see the Competition Regulations document that further describes the point system in detail. Also note, a paid Registration fee is all that is required to be eligible for bonus Participation Points.

As a reminder, in order to compete for PPKC 4 cycle Championship Points and Annual Awards all Racers must complete 8 races using the Briggs 206 engine. As per the Clubs change to the Briggs engine format Race Day trophies will be presented to Briggs Racers in the order of their finish. We are in the process of making Briggs engines available at the track for those wishing to rent an engine for a race weekend. Rental fees will be applied to the purchase price, should a Racer decide to purchase the Briggs 206 engine at cost. More detail will be made available shortly.

More good news! PPKC will continue with MG Red Tires as the Club Official Tire. Visiting Racers will have additional tire options.

Lastly, please don’t forget to take advantage of the reduced Membership Fee of $100 prior to April 1st 2012. Prices increase to $175 thereafter, as well as the annual track practice membership deal.

Please have all your registration forms with a cheque or money order mailed in and post marked before April 1st and made payable to Point Pelee Karting Club if your team has not done so already .

PPK will no longer be the spec fuel provider for race events. We experienced issues in obtaining an accurate fuel meter for tracking fuel being dispersed. We are unable to obtain an accurate meter for our purposes, therefore we will no longer provide fuel. Please note; the meter being used in 2011 was in the purchasers favor, not the vendors.

As of today, the spec fuel is available at Parkdale Store n Service. They were generous enough to open station early Sunday mornings for all racers convenience, and will also be providing club with sponsorship funds towards the 2011 season.

11/05/02 Once again Mother Nature rained down on the racers of PPKC

Friday and Saturday were beautiful days to get in some good solid practice laps and work out all the winter gremlins. The rest of the 2011 rookie class got in their training on Saturday and did a couple of simulated races to get used to lining up and watching the flagmen. All rookies passed with flying colors and were all set for Sundays first race of the year.

Unfortunately on Sunday, Mother Nature once again put a damper on things. The rain started at 8:00am and within 15mins the pits were flooded. The PPKC Board were once again forced to make a very hard decision by cancelling the day’s events. The decision was difficult, as some racers were ready to go race, while others packed up their trailers and headed home, and many racers decided not to show up at all.

There were several items considered before the PPKC Board made the call to cancel the day’s event. The first serious consideration was based on safety. Many of the participants present were new racers, who have not been in extreme wet racing conditions yet . The second consideration was due to outright lack of participation within the Club. PPKC need to meet a minimum amount of entries each raceday, to be able to cover the costs associated with hosting an event. (track rental, ambulance, insurance, trophies, corner workers, etc )

We would like to remind all racers that PPKC races ‘RAIN or SHINE’ (baring lightening and or tornadoes). Racers need to be ready to race on all racedays. If the club does not meet the minimum amount of racers, we may have to cancel again. If we all make an effort to show up on possible wet days, we can work together as a Club to find a way to make the day successful. If this does not happen, we may be forced to raise the entrance fees to cover the lack of participation during any future mother nature controlled situations, like what happened on May 1st .

The Point Pelee Karting Club would like to thank all racers and family members that made it to the track on Sunday to race. To reward all those racers who made the trip as far away as Brighton, Michigan, PPKC will be providing bonus points to the drivers for their respective classes. The quantity of bonus points will be decided by the PPKC Board during their next meeting.

PPKC would also like to thank the track management for allowing us to reschedule the race day at the very last minute, once again without any penalties, St John’s Ambulance, and all the flagmen and support staff, for coming out in the pouring rain .

next race days are a double race weekend May14th & May15th

11/04/28 Up coming race weekend parking

Parking is going to very tight this weekend due to the back grass area not going to be available for parking due to all the rain . We ask that all trailers be parked tight as possible together in the gravel pit area to make room for everyone . Anyone that can drop their trailer and move their towing vehicles to the laneway to double up on space in the pits would be greatly appreciated . See the blog from 11/04/25 for more info on mandatory rookie training and important raceday information .

Thank-you in advance for your cooperation in this temporary weather situation brought on by the lying groundhog back on Feb 2 :).

11/04/15 Attn: All rookies and racers that were planning on attending the opening weekend racing event at PPK this weekend .

The PPKC Board and track officials have had a lengthy debate all week on whether to go forward with rookie training day on Sat and race #1 of the PPKC season . Track officials even had the laneway and pit area graded this week to help prepare for the big weekend, however, we have decided to be on the safe side and postpone the events due to a number of reasons .

#1 - The weather forecast is calling for rain, high winds and cold temperatures for both Sat and Sunday .
#2 - The majority of racers have not been able to get out and practice or break in their equipment due to the rough spring weather we have had so far on the weekends . This could become a safety factor during racing conditions .
#3 - All rookies must get in some training and practice before putting them into a race day situation – also a safety concern .
#4 - Track parking will be very limited due to the soft ground that has not really had a chance to dry out from the long wet winter .

We apologize for any inconvenience to the teams and their families but we are leaning towards safety and making it a fun family day instead of a wet, cold and miserable one . Rookie day will be April 30th at 10:00am and our first race day will be May 1st. We will post the rescheduled race day at a later time .

Thanks for your patience in getting the 2011 season going .

11/04/10 2011 Racing season begins

Everyone is going to be counting on mother nature to take a break to allow the track pits and laneway a chance to dry out and allow PPKC 2011 racing season to start for this coming weekend .

All oil and used tires can be disposed of in the recycling containers also located along the fence. Also, for all teams using heat guns to remove rubber build up, please do not leave shaved rubber on ground. Its our house. lets keep it clean.

The PPKC board also discussed some changes to help reduce cost and ways to try and equal the completion for the 2 cycle classes. The Board strongly believes that seperating classes will not help young drivers to develop their skills as much as equalizing the playing field and allowing bigger classes with more competitors. It was decided that the following concessions will be made by competitors, to enable classes to compete together.

10/05/14 -Club Information and Schedule changes

Now that the first two races are complete, Your PPKC board of directors held a meeting on Tues May 11 to discuss and propose different ways to provide PPKC members & racers with the most economical possible race day experience. Your board is considering some further cost saving ideas for the memberships consideration . If accepted by majority of Members, our intentions would be to implement changes for next race day or as soon as possible.
Listed below is the boards proposals, are for the considerations for of the members. We are looking for 100% response participation.

Cost savings proposals:
Registration
- reduction in registration for additional classes entered per Driver ( 2nd class entered per race day to $50 plus spec fuel )

Competition
- spec gears for Cadet & Novice classes based on track configuration on all race days.

Tires
-Option #1 - switch to a harder tire compound for all four cycle classes. (testing is currently being done with MG Reds at this time at the track) We must be careful of this option, as it may limit our ability to attract out of town racers or one off participants.

-Option #2 - Min # of race days per set of tires , class specific ( example: SR med 2 races min per set / Cadet 5 races etc.) Tires will be stamped and/or branded if implemented. PPKC will indicate on schedule which race days permit the use of new tires. Weight penalty would apply to anyone who is not on the correct cycle of new /used tires, or that uses new tires as a guest competitor

Oil
-(4 cycle ) switch to spec oil, Mobile 1 or another cost effective oil, without compromising engine wear. Oil would be distributed in a similar way as spec fuel.


Please note: the finer details will have to be worked out on any or all cost reduction proposals that are accepted by the majority of the clubs members .

The board is also looking for additional cost saving ideas from club members. We value input on the above mentioned ideas and look forward to implementing ASAP to help drive down the cost of racing during these tough economic times. Please email your responses and ideas to ppkc_09@hotmail.com or any of the board members listed on the PPKC website .

Please note: all anonymous emails received will be discarded , please sign your name and contact info so the board members can inquire more information or clarification if needed .
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fund Raising Raffle tickets :

Raffle ticket money will be collected at the next race day . All raffle ticket money is due by June 20th . Any registered PPKC driver who has not handed in their raffle ticket stubs & money will not be scored from the June 20th race forward .
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Important PPKC 2010 race schedule change :

May 30th race day has been moved to June 27th due to the amount of club members planning on attending the Eastern Canadian Karting Championships event and the Indy 500 . Any out of town racers who race the June 27th event at PPK can leave there trailers in preferred parking spots for the Brian Stewart Event the following weekend . We are trying to attract out of town racers to participate before the big race. PPKC_Schedule_change

Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in the Holiday Season, that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones in sharing centuries-old traditions such as trying to find a parking space at the mall. We traditionally do this with family by driving around the parking lot until we see a shopper emerge from the mall, then we follow her, in very much the same spirit as the Three Wise Men, who 2000 years ago followed a star, week after week, until it led them to a parking space.

Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year to all the families, friends and sponsors of the Point Pelee Karting Club.

09/12/02 - 2010 Florida Winter Tour Honda GX Cup information

A note from Bill Wright, promoter of the Florida Winter Tour:

Hello all,

Official FWT Honda GX Cup information can now be found in the Formula kart Class Info section at the FWT web site.

http://www.floridawintertour.com/2010-fwt-info/class-information/fkr-classes.html

Technical information can be found in the Formula Kart Rules and Regulations section.

http://www.floridawintertour.com/2010-fwt-info/rules-and-regulations/155-fk-rules-and-regulations.html

Note that we intend to run the Senior and Masters together and score them seperately. However, if the combined classes exceed 34 karts we will provide seperate classes for each category.

Also note that registration for the Honda GX classes will open on December 15th. Remember that we must have 12 in a class on February first or we could drop the class. Based on the response so far I don't think that's going to be a problem!

I want to again thank BSRKC, Mike Preston, Mike Adams, Lynda and Enzo Chiovitti, Lon Herder, Robin McLean and everyone who has been involved. With your continued support I think we'll expose a really great and affordable form of racing to the FWT participants and businesses.

I want to offer a special THANK YOU to Luis and Wagner from WR International for providing a seat on the 2010 FWT Granja Team for one lucky Honda GX Senior or Masters competitor. Just to remind everyone, the Points Champion of the class with the highest number of entries will be the driver who goes to Brasil!

To be added to the FWT Honda GX mailing list send an email with your name, class and kart number request to info@formulakart.com.

I look forward to seeing you all soon.

09/30/09 - PPKC Announces the Ultimate Karting Championship

UKC Badge
**UPDATE: The cost is now $50.00 a driver
The Point Pelee Karting Club again makes news as they launch the first annual Ultimate Karting Championship to be held on Saturday October 17th. Following a successful night race, and simulated rain race, his final event of the 2009 season will feature long distance enduro style races in several classes with times ranging from thirty minutes to two hours. Point Pelee, Canada's southern most point, boasts great fall weather and maybe the last best chance for karters to run in 2009.

"Our commitment this year was to bring back some excitement to karting in the Windsor area," comments Point Peele Kart Club President Todd Quinlan. "The Ultimate Kart Championship is another example of a fun race and something we haven't seen before in our area."

Like the UFC, drivers in the Ultimate Karting Championship will battle to the end for world (or at least Ontario) domination. The program will feature classes for all ages and includes such names as Feather Weight and Welter Weight, giving the event that real knock'em out, drag'em out feel. In fact the trophy for the winner is named Battle for the Belt. Cash prizes will be awarded to all classes.

Completing the weekend's events on Monday, Grant and company drove home earning one championship, one vice-championship and a third place overall.

After positioning himself near the top of all the timesheets in Saturday practice, the team felt very positive heading into the next two days of racing.

"After racing the Kawartha Durham Kart Club race last weekend, I felt very prepared to take a shot at all three championships this weekend," stated Todd Quinlan, team owner and father.
