All New Avon Historics Kart & Minibike Event-Revised

Post by Scott Kneisel » Thu Jan 18, 2018 9:38 am

Hi all,
By request we are trying something new at Avon in addition to our normal July VKA Northeast Series event.
On June 8 & 9 we are going to host an Antique and Vintage Kart and minibike event. It should be tons of fun and track time as well as good food and beautiful machines showing off. THIS IS NOT A RACING EVENT, just a good time for all who come. We expect to see some really old equipment in the Kart as well as Minibike motorsports.

FYI: Many track improvements were made this year including an 8' wider main straight, wider corners and a track extension with a banked turn. Come and see for yourself!!!

Note: Bike and kart use on the grounds will be heavily restricted. No riding in pits. Bikes and karts allowed on the track during specified times only providing a drivers pass is purchased. Juniors must be accompanied by parent or guardian.

Attached is the flier for the event, please email Scott (chuckie72us@yahoo.com) if you have any questions and we will do our best to answer. Hope you can make it,
Scott Kneisel & Sam Polito (Event Promotors)

Please note some additional regulations for the event, especially for those bringing minibikes which will have to follow the same regulations as motorcycles in our rule book in order to comply with grounds and track insurance.
Attached is the particular page as well as a revised flier.
Hopefully will see you all there,
Scott & Sam

Got up to Avon N.Y. this past weekend for Scott Kneisel and Sam Polito's Historical kart and minibike event on Friday and had a great time.

The event was well attended for a first time event and everybody got a lot of seat time.

It was good to see old friends and meet up with some new ones also like Kurt Bogerman who was on his second outing with his Dart Kart.

Not many photos, was to busy driving.

Kurt here. I want to jump in and say that the event was awesome. Scott, Sam, and the track staff did an awesome job. It was a pleasure to meet folks like Scott, Sam, & Bob, as well as so many others. The atmosphere was relaxing, and there was ample time to test, tune, and practice. Occasionally, there would be guys who went out and sparred a bit on the track, trading leads, etc., but always with respect for the others' vintage equipment and, more importantly, their personal safety.

As a new member of the vintage karting community (and karting in general), it was great to be able take part in conversations with, and/or just listen and learn from the more experienced folks who made their way to the event.

It was a great weekend, and I hope that it can be repeated.

Thanks! --Kurt
