For those interested in racing with their own kart, Brechin Motorpsort Park hosts an annual Championship Racing series that is run by the Toronto Kart Club (TKC), a not for profit organization that has been around since the early 1960’s.
Before racing at this level drivers have usually progressed from Public Karting and/or Arrive & Drive, but it is not unusual for drivers to purchase their own karts and drive right in! This often includes drivers of all ages that are completely new to the sport, and we are committed to helping you do it!
Do not hesitate to contact us at any time if you are interested in learning more about this fantastic family activity where the young and not-so-young can enjoy the thrill and excitement of wheel-to-wheel motorsport action and competition at the grass-roots level. We will gladly take the time to answer all of your questions and help you decide if this is an activity that is right for you and your family.
TKC events are sanctioned by Sports Development Group · ASN Canada, the Sporting authority delegated by the FIA that oversees all Canadian national motorsport.
Drivers own and maintain their own karts. All younger drivers work as a team with one or both parents – this is a family activity and parents are not passive observers like in other sports!
Drivers must be members of the Club. Associate Membership is required for parents of drivers under the age of 18.
Driver training/evaluation is mandatory for new drivers and is provided by the Club.
Drivers are grouped in Classes based on age (Cadet – 8-11, Junior Lite – 11-14, Junior – 12-15, Senior 15+ and Master 26+).
The Cadet Class runs a smaller kart which is not allowed in other classes.
All Classes run the same engine (Briggs LO206 4-cycle or ROK 2-cycle) which is regulated to restrict power depending on the class.
The engine is sealed and is designed to be easy to operate so anyone can run them – there is no need for advanced mechanical knowledge!
Race days are typically held on Sundays from 8 am to 3 pm (approximately).
Practice is available on most days at the track, and many drivers purchase a Track Membership that includes unlimited practice for the season. Many drivers and families practice on Saturday before racing on Sunday.
