2015 Race News

The leadership team of Snake River Karters for the 2015 racing season welcomes you, your family and friends to another exciting and prosperous karting season! We hope that you enjoyed the Holidays with your families and friends and are preparing for the upcoming kart season at Glen Morgan Raceway! As some of you may know, we have hit the ground running and have already started strategic planning for 2015! During the January Board meeting, we defined the Snake River Karters race schedule of 8 club races! in which the Board of Directors voted upon unanimously. Along with a printable copy of our schedule, we have indicated various NW tracks (ones with schedules thus far) within the IKF Region 6. In addition, we have also outlined the NW Gold Cup Race Events. You will see in the attached schedule that all Snake River Karters races are highlighted in yellow for your reference.

As many of you may already know, Snake River Karters will be hosting an IKF GOLD CUP RACE on Memorial Day weekend! This is an exciting opportunity for us to host a Regional IKF Race event on our newly paved asphalt sprint track that will bring competitors from all over the Northwest! We have combined one of our club races (#2) with the Gold Cup event which will provide an event full of competitive racing!

We are looking forward to seeing you, your family and friends at Glen Morgan this year where we’re sure to have another action packed season!

2014 Helmet Info

There has been some discussion about whether IKF will change any helmet rules for 2014.

The following is from the 2013 IKF rules manual and we have confirmation that the 2014 IKF rules will be the same. The following are the helmet specifications that will still be allowed in 2014.

Per IKF HEAD GEAR: Full coverage (full face) helmets designed for competitive motorsports use are mandatory and must comply with one of the following:


Snell Foundation Specifications Legal Until

The Helmet rating should be on the inside of the helmet, but sometimes is hard to find. Here is a link for searching for Snell ratings for several helmet models.
