Covid 19 Back to Racing Protocol is active. Read the guide here.
This Saturday’s planned Night Race is not going to be run under the lights. We were not able to secure enough lighting to safely run after dark. The Race Day will still go ahead as planned with Registration starting at 2pm. Drivers meeting at 3:40 and on track activities starting at 4pm.
The PPKC Board is deeply sorry that we could not put this highly anticipated Night Race together for everyone to enjoy. But due to situations beyond our control, we’ll have to run a regular Saturday Race Day.
With that being said, we’d like to offer up the idea of having a Pot-Luck dinner after the races are completed Saturday. If you’d like to participate, please bring a dish to share. We understand that this is last minute and would hope that everyone understands.
Sunday morning complimentary pancake breakfast provided by PPKC. Everyone is encourage to grab a plate and enjoy this breakfast that will be cooked and served by Sherri Lajoie. We’ll announce Saturday where we’ll be serving breakfast so no one misses out.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday, July 29, 2021
They say good things come to those who wait, and after having to delay its visit to Point Pelee Karting by more than a year, KartStars Canada finally made good this past weekend. The KartStars team hit the mark once again as the championship contested its second round, and the Point Pelee crew went over and above in producing an outstanding event.
Matching the upward trend realized at the opener, participation was up over 20% in comparison to Round 2 at Innisfil last year. With 149 entries spread across Briggs and Rok classes, the event produced a special atmosphere that was inclusive for entire families. A special thanks must go to PPK Karting for its exceptional hospitality, as the event included a welcome party with a meal, and a fireworks show for all to enjoy. Point Pelee Kart Club went over and above, both in encouraging member participation and in helping with personnel. A massive podium presentation was a fitting way to end what was a great weekend of racing, and drivers left happy regardless of their results on track.
“Over the years our team has been fortunate enough to organize and execute some of the biggest events in the country,” said KartStars Canada President Daniel Di Leo. “With our experience, we are pretty good at understanding the dynamics of an event like this and can usually forecast participation levels - but I can tell you that 150 entries exceeded the expectations of everyone involved. It was just a fantastic event all around, and we are extremely grateful for the support we received from the Ontario karting community. I also need to express just how proud I am of our staff. This was the first true ‘away’ race for us and we didn’t miss a beat in putting together a road show. It wasn’t easy, but everyone got the job done and we are already looking forward to the next one!”
Below is a list of our Round 2 winners. A special thanks to AI Motorsports and Canadian Karting News for their collaboration on the Custom Photo Awards for all winners.

The KartStars Canada schedule resumes August 13-15 as the National Championship takes place at Shannonville Motorsports Park. Reviving the Bear Hunt tradition, the KartStars Team is excited to renew a tradition that has been a part of Ontario karting for decades. With tickets to represent Team Canada on the line, drivers will be motivated as Rok Superfinal and Rok Las Vegas tickets are up for grabs.
Move in and set up is scheduled for Thursday afternoon, with sunset practice beginning later in the day. A full schedule will be available Friday June 30th as registration opens for the event. We are expecting this to be a great event. Don’t miss out! Stay tuned for future announcements.
