Mission Statement
The Vintage Kart Club of America (VKCA) was formed by a group of vintage kart enthusiasts interested in promoting
 and preserving the appreciation, recognition and restoration of vintage karts manufactured in the era from 1956 through1975.  
VKCA is a club where all like-minded vintage karters can meet, exchange ideas, 
and enjoy the sport with kart shows, swap meets, and on-track demonstrations.

This is what The Vintage Kart Club of America is all about


The VKCA has been formed as a non-profit corporation. The leadership of the club is a board of directors comprised of the following member elected officers; President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and Membership Director. There will be a variety of appointed board advisors that will not have voting privileges.

The five officers will serve a term of two years, with election dates staggered as follows:  VP, Secretary and Membership Director positions up for election in odd years, President and Treasurer positions will be up for election in even years. Member elections will be held annually to vote in the officers that are up for election in that year. The advisors shall be appointed by the Board and serve a term of one year.

The rules for this club have been formed for simplicity and enjoyment of the participant. Vintage kart track demonstrations are not intended to be a form of all-out competitive racing, but a means of celebrating the racing heritage of the karts while minimizing the risk to both karts and drivers.

The club intends to promote interest and activities for vintage karts by providing on and off-track events, open communication through regular newsletters and board participation in Web site forums, awards for member achievements( other than track performance), plus incentives and support for promoters to ensure their events will run smoothly and with the best opportunity to be financially viable.

VKCA events are for production race karts maintained as nearly as possible to their original specification for their era, and to be demonstrated in a sportsmanlike manner. VKCA demonstrations provide a margin which accepts the irreplaceable nature of a piece of racing history as taking precedence over the driverís need to win. Flagged heat races at (some) events, provide that competitive track time needed for some drivers. Driving manners and respect for othersí safety and equipment is paramount! Cooperation between fast and not-so-fast is mandatory. The veteran respects the beginnerís right to the track, and the beginner respects the veteranís right to motor to the extent of his ability and good judgment. The participant, whose only purpose is winning, has no place at VKCA events.
