2019 Memberships and Reserved Kart Numbers

It's time to renew your Badger Kart Club memberships for the 2018 season! All 2018 memberships expired December 31st. If you want to keep the same kart number for 2019, please renew by February 28th. After February 28th, all kart numbers will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Membership forms can be found on this page, but we recommend using the online registration available at http://msreg.com/BKC2019Membership. We use the same service for online membership applications as we do for race registrations, so if you've registered for races online, you'll be familiar with the process. We're looking forward to seeing everyone at the track in 2019!

 

2019 Class Requirements Finalized

The Competition Class Requirements listed on our website have been updated to reflect the 2019 classes, and the 2019 Rule Book has been posted.

 

Weight Limit on Gramling Lane Bridge Just North of the Track

Waukesha County imposed a weight restriction on the bridge just north of the track entrance on Gramling Lane. Weight limited to 5 tons (10,000 lbs.) per axle until next year for a planned road reconstruction. Please be advised that if you exceed this limit, you must enter from the south on Gramling Lane. Waukesha County does have our race schedule on file with our annual zoning permit process.

See What Badger Kart Club is All About

If you've just heard of kart racing, or karting, and you're not really sure what it is, this video will give you an idea. Many people think of the karts you see at amusement parks or in Wisconsin Dells when they think go karts, but our racers take it to another level. Badger Kart Club members race purpose-built racing machines powered by 2-cycle or 4-cycle engines capable of speeds over 60 miles per hour. Our members all own their own karts and equipment. Our members participate in races from our the club points series, with some participating in races at the top levels of the sport. If you've seen the show "Kart Life," you've seen some Badger Kart Club members.

Want to see what it's all about? Come out as a spectator to one of our races. Admission is free, you can bring your whole family. Enjoy a picnic on our grounds, or get a bite to eat at our Karter's Kafe. There is no cost to mingle in the paddock with the drivers and mechanics and ask them questions.

 

New Member Referral Program

Badger Kart Club will be starting a new referral rewards program for members who recruit other members. If an existing member refers a new member, the existing member will receive a free membership for the next season. Additionally, existing members will receive 5 free practice/pit passes when the new member competes in 2 championship races and an additional 10 free practice/pit passes when the new member completes in a total of 8 championship races. There is no limit on the number of referrals. For additional details, click to download this information sheet.
