After a very successful off-season with the Chill Challenge Winter Series at Adams Motorsport Park, Tri-C Karters officially announced on Facebook they will be working with Pacific Association of Karting at Apex Racing Center for their 2019 season. This assistance will be on top of Tri-C’s current season at Calspeed Karting.

The race day at Apex will follow the standard schedule of Tri-C: practice, qualifying, two heat races and a main event. Trophy presentations will follow shortly after the last main event.

It is important to note that class lists are different compared to the official Tri-C club. I’ve listed these below, along with the dates for each race of the 2019 season for PAK.

*Disclaimer: class notes, weights, engines and other specifics are subject to possible change. Please refer to the official Tri-C Karters and Pacific Association of Karting websites for up-to-date information.

The PAK Series also ensures their schedule does not conflict with other local clubs’ already published schedules, including Formula Karting Championship, Los Angeles Karting Championship and their new partner, Tri-C Karters. Their six round schedule starts next month in April, and extends through November with roughly two races every three months. The PAK Banquet will be announced at a later date.

  • Round 1 – April 7
  • Round 2 – May 5
  • Round 3 – July 27 (night race)
  • Round 4 – September 7 (night race)
  • Round 5 – October 27
  • Round 6 – November 10
