President’s Update April 2020

Hi Racers,

Well I’m tired of constantly hearing bad news so today I’m sharing some good news!

  1. Our membership numbers are now at an incredible 160! – a fantastic thank you to all our supporters during this Covid-19 Pandemic.
  2. We will be going ahead with major track improvements during the month of May, since the AB government has not lifted the over 15 person gathering ban and subsequently all on track activity is still closed.
  3. Track improvements will be as follows: (All done in a Covid-19 safe manner)
    1. – Modifying and repaving the hairpin turns #11 & #13 – will be able to gear down all the classes by at least one tooth.
    2. – Leveling out the braking zone in turn 11.
    3. – Leveling out turn 14,
    4. – Leveling out the bumps on the front straight, top straight and back straight.
    5. – Mill out and fill all the track cracks.
    6. – New curbing on exist of turns 14 & 8 – CCW
    7. – Repair drain in infield hairpin #11
    8. – Pave the pit runner off the trolley park
    9. – Fill and patch the low spot in the trolley park kart exit – currently a water trap.
    10. – Replace all tire barriers with the new RB1500 plastic barriers.
    11. – Landscape the area adjacent to the food area with new Paving stones from the pit runner to the grandstand, raise and reseed that low area.

We are living in unprecedented times with this Covid-19 Pandemic. The fluidity of changing dynamics makes it difficult to plan our future. The CKRC Executive will try our best to manage through this situation. Our overlying aim is to maintain Covid-19 rules and regulations as mandated by our Federal, Provincial and local governments and provide our members with as many services as possible.
