Dear Prokarter and Supporters,
Welcome to the 2018 season of the Prokart Super Single Series.
We are very excited to get the season underway and have worked very hard over the last 2 months to bring some exciting new additions to our wonderful series. There’s so much to share with you, so let’s get straight into it:
We have a brand new online entry system. Members and Teams can register online, which will also be linked to their online race entries as well. This will make administration for team managers much simpler when entering races throughout the year. We will have an auto complete feature on race entries that will complete an entry form for you based on the previous race you’ve entered and drivers you chose for that race. No more typing out team member names and email addresses and trying to remember birth dates. Once you enter, each member/driver will get an email notification confirming their entry for that event, so they will know they’ve been entered immediately. So, no more excuses that you forgot it was raceday! There will be additional features being added as well in future, which will allow us to track engine allocations, dyno readings, tyre allocations and even scale readings during raceday. Thank you to one of our team’s sponsors, Noscotek (http://www.noscotek.co.za), for providing this wonderful system.
Race Sponsors: We’re excited to introduce our race sponsorship programme. Each race, we have made a sponsorship package available for anyone who wishes to participate. The package includes naming rights for the day’s race i.e. “YOUR COMPANY NAME Prokart SSS Race Round 1”. You get branding onto the day’s trophies as well, social media tagging and much more. Please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about how you can secure a raceday package. They are filling up rather quickly and we already have sponsors for the first four races for the year, with our first race sponsor being TrevPAR World (www.trevparworld.com) for Round 1. More information will follow about this wonderful sponsorship once entries open.
AGM: Prokart SSS Club will be holding the Annual General Meeting on Friday 9th February, 6pm for 6:30pm, at the Ridgeway Racebar (upstairs area), Stoneridge Mall, Greenstone. Click here to indicate your attendance on our Facebook page. Thank you to Ridgeway Racebar for offering their wonderful venue to host our AGM. A reminder that only paid up members of Prokart SSS Club will be eligible for nomination into the General Management Committee and will have voting rights. Click here to register as a Prokart SSS Driver Member or Non-Driver Member if you wish to serve on the committee. Only registered members will receive the AGM Agenda pack. Please ensure you register before the AGM. We also encourage family to get involved too and become Non-Driver members of the Prokart SSS Club. As a member, you will also be eligible for race day giveaways and any other benefits that driver members get. We see you at every race day, supporting, and we are all part of the Prokart family, so why not make it official?
Calendar: The race calendar has been formulated and we are waiting for confirmation from some of the race venues. The calendar will consist of 9 rounds of racing for 2018. We’ve cut the season by 1 race for the year. This means that your racing season will be even more affordable than last year. Entries will open after the AGM on 9th February 2018. The first 2 races for the season are already confirmed:
- Round 1 – Laserfiche Raceway – Sunday 25th February 2018
- Round 2 – Laserfiche Raceway (Reverse) – Sunday 18th March 2018
- Round 3 – Zwartkops Kart Circuit – To Be Confirmed for May 2018 (That’s right, no race in April, so you can get your Holiday on!)
Race on Us: Another exciting announcement (to be confirmed by our members at the AGM) is that there will be no increase in our race entry fees this year for both Sprint 390 and Endurance 390 teams. Even more exciting is that this year, Minions, Midgets and Senior 200 classes will have ZERO entry fees for the entire year. That’s right, this year’s racing is on us! So dust off that old chassis, get your mates together and start getting ready for one of our best seasons yet! What’s Senior 200 you might be thinking? Well, it’s the replacement class for the 270cc, using a Hoffmann 212cc motor. Eligible ages are from 12 to 16 years old. Attend the AGM or email email@example.com if you would like to know more.
We have many more exciting developments to share with you, but this will have to wait until the AGM. So make sure you’ve registered and let us know on Facebook that you’re going to be there, or just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you’re coming. Bring the whole family with (remember they can sign up as members too!). There will be opportunity to register and pay your membership fees at the AGM as well.
We hope you’re ready for a great 2018 Prokart season, we most definitely are! Time to get back into that kart!
