The Waterloo Regional Kart Club started the 2012 season with on one its best ever attended races at Flamboro Speedway, but the real excitement happened on the track. The clubs racers put on a great show, once again demonstrating that the Honda 4 cycle program provides some of the best wheel-to-wheel racing around. In the Jr. Heavy final race the top-five karts were within 2 seconds of each other at the checkered flag. The racing was intense in the heat races in every class, because if you didnít get a good starting position for the final you had a lot of karts to pass to end up on the podium.
