AKRA officials are proud to announce pre-registration is now open for Round 1 of the American Sprint Cup Series “Northern Tour” presented by Boon & Sons, set to take place June 3-5 at the historic Genesee Valley Kart Club in Avon, New York.
Racers may pre-register for everything via these options except parking. For parking, please contact GVKC’s Kevin Orlop at 585-363-3795 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Price is $50 for a 12×40’ spot.
AKRA Ready to Head North!
On the heels of two smooth and successful Southern Tour races earlier this spring, AKRA is eager to head north of the Mason-Dixon Line for the first time this year. The Genesee Valley Kart Club is a challenging track that’s recently been widened in sections and completely repaved, and the club has been hoping for an opportunity to host a larger scale event.
AKRA officials are happy to provide GVKC with that opportunity next month as we look to build a long-term relationship that will benefit and grow grassroots sprint karting in upstate New York and the Northeast region.
Classes for Everyone!
With this year being the first year of the American Sprint Cup Series we’re starting with a large slate of classes that will likely be paired down in 2017. We want to give as many engine platforms an opportunity to run with us, especially with different engines being more popular in different areas of the country.

The main differences from the Southern Tour are the addition of TaG Masters (age 35 and up) and Stock methanol Animal. These divisions are not offered in the Southern Tour, but with more interest up north, we opted to give the classes an opportunity in the Northern Tour.
Also, both 4-cycle LO206 and 2-cycle Comer Kid Karts are welcomed to attend. We will likely run these classes together, however they will be scored separate with awards for each division.
TS Racing will be at Avon with tires available for purchase!
The Vega FH (Blue) is the spec tire for all classes except the three TaG divisions, which is run a “limited-open” tire. See https://akrasprint.com/classes/norther-tour-classes/ for allowed TaG tires.
Vega FH slicks and W5 rain tires will be available at the track for purchase. To purchase tires in advance, go to TSRacing.com or contact your area dealer.
More information on tire rules coming soon.
