Mosport Kartways readies for busy weekend highlighted by the Briggs and Stratton SummerFest

Jam packed weekend on tap as Mosport Kartways hosts a double-header weekend with the Inter Club Challenge on Saturday followed by the fourth annual Briggs & Stratton SummerFest on Sunday.

Saturdays event will pair up all TRAK, MIKA and visiting members as the Inter Club Challenge is sure to draw big crowds for a standard event utilizing the Canadian Karting Championship configuration. On Sunday, introduced in 2016, the Briggs and Stratton SummerFest will take centre stage. The event is focused around Briggs’ racers with the intention of creating a who’s-who showdown in Briggs and Stratton racing. With its limited class structure, increased track time through a unique format is something participants look forward to every year.
