The Waterloo Regional Kart Club members had a chance to work on their qualifying skills on Saturday June 2nd at Flamboro Speedway. The club's members qualified for starting positions as opposed to the standard procedure of drawing for starting positions for the 1st heat race. Many of the club members welcomed a change in format for Race 4 of the 2012 season, especially those that received the fastest qualifier trophy that was presented for each class. Regardless of how the line up was determined for the final, the racers showed that the final races will always be a close fought battle in every class.
