On Saturday and Sunday (August 18-19), the Mosport International Karting Association will be hosting its second summer doubleheader of the season. The guy that makes up the names for the events is hungover from Boots and Hearts, so the race will be known as the "August Double Header!"
The layout on Saturday is the Jewell configuration, which uses the upper bowl and the super-short track. On Sunday, the racers will run a RANDOM layout. Once racing is concluded on Saturday, a draw will be held on the podium to determine the layout for Sunday's races.
Practice is available all day on Friday.
There will also be a myriad of prizes available. MIKA will again be offering cash prizes on both Saturday and Sunday. For classes with five drivers or more, prizes of $100 for first, $75 for second, and $50 for third will be offered. There will also be 10 draws of $25 prizes each day for those in attendance at the podium. The club is also working on more prizes to give away at the podium as well. All drivers will have access to the Mosport oval on Saturday night as well with their wristband.
On a technical note, MIKA has changed its spec fuel station due to concerns of ethanol content at the previous spec station. The new station is the Esso on Highway 115, just south of the Highway 35 split, and it is less than 10 minutes from the track. All classes will be using 91 octane.
Classes racing during the August Double Header will be Honda Junior Light, Honda Junior Heavy, Honda Senior, Honda Masters, Briggs and Stratton Senior, Rotax Mini-Max, Rotax Junior, Rotax Senior, Rotax Masters, and Rotax DD2/Pro-Shifters.
Rotax Max classes will be on Mojo rubber. Rotax Masters and Mini-Max, as well as the four cycle classes will be on Vega Blue rubber. The shifter guys have choice as always.
Race fees are $70 for members, and $80 for any other ASN club member for each race day. Competitors can register on Friday and also register for both days at once.
