March Club Race – Opening Round

After a short winter break and a rained out March race we are all looking forward to a warm and sunny March Cub Race. Forecasts predict sunny and 75 this Sunday March 8th, hope to see everyone at the track. If you know anyone interested in volunteering we can use the help. Please contact Phil Rochester if you are interested: 805-896-0558

Clean Up Day

Can you lend a helping hand? SMKA is having a clean up day this Saturday 1/31/2015 from 8:00 – 12:00 we will be focusing on tackling tumbleweeds and securing the foam bales. Please bring gloves, string trimmers, blowers and brooms. Hope to see you there.

Transponders – New for 2015

Please note, the Santa Maria Karting Association will be running MyLaps Transponders in 2015. This means that you will need to either rent a transponder for each event at the cost of $10 per race or purchase a transponder from an authorized distributor such as:

http://www.fastech-racing.com/amb-mylaps-kart-rechargeable-power-transponder.html

http://www.fastech-racing.com/amb-mylaps-amb-kartflex-transponder-with-1-year-subscription.html

http://www.fastech-racing.com/amb-transponder-bracket.html

Please be sure and read the fine print if you elect to go with the Kartflex subscription transponder as it requires a subscription.

Transponders will enable the club to qualify for starting position instead of P Picking and will make it possible to view lap times and results at the track and after the race on http://www.mylaps.com/en

MyLaps Transponders will help bring SMKA into the 21st century as qualifying and modern scoring are the norm at most kart tracks these days. Be prepared to rent a transponder and purchase a mounting bracket at the February 8th club race if you don’t already have one.
