Following Government guidelines and taking into consideration the current state of the Coronavirus outbreak, the National Kart Racing Association regretfully announce that the annual Trophy Presentation evening and Dinner Dance will be cancelled for 2020.
In order to ensure that the annual trophies and awards are made available to the respective winners, an alternative method has been selected. The awards will be presented over a period of race meetings, to which the class or sub-class is involved during the next months. The first group of awards will be presented at the Clay Pigeon Race meeting on Sunday 8th November. This will involve the Formula Blue Class. Contrary to NKRA regulations, yet respecting current circumstances, any driver not able to attend due to any Coronavirus related restrictions will still be given their award at the first mutually available time.
The trophies and awards to be presented on November the 8th at the Clay Pigeon race meeting will include.
1) The first 3 in the 2020 Blue Challenge
2) The first 7 in the NKRA Southern Regionals
3) The first 4 in the NKRA Grande Finals
4) Top Lady
N.B. The Trophy presentation for Blue Master, Blue Veteran, Blue Legend & Blue Top Weight will take place at later race meetings, still to be announced.
