GCKI is pleased to welcome Awesome Shots as our official photography partner. Anyone who attended the Southwest Regional Cup races at GCKI saw well-known local motorsports photographer, Kenny Lau positioned strategically around the track taking great (awesome) action shots of the competition. Kenny will be permitting GCKI to use some of the shots as promotional pieces for the club, and we will use his photos to highlight our year end banquet. If anyone wants to view or purchase pictures from the SWRI Sunday race they can be previewed via the link below. Kenny will be attending GCKI club races whenever possible to capture all of the racing action. http://www.photoreflect.com/store/thumbpage.aspx?e=8170933
Jennifer Vogel of KIAH TV Houston's local Channel 39 came out to Gulf Coast Kartway to feature the kart club on the TV show "Anything That Rolls". Come out to GCKI on a race day to see for yourself how much fun it is to race and watch close open wheel racing at Gulf Coast Kartway. Check out our Race Schedule for race dates. Spectator passes are only $5 per person. We look forward to seeing you at the track!
Thanks to the heroic efforts of a volunteer crew of GCKI members, race fans attending upcoming events at the GCKI track will be able to view the excitement in total comfort. A new awning has been installed completely covering the new aluminum bleachers in most welcome shade. The new awning system features a high-tech remote control enabling the covers to be opened for races, then retracted to preserve them from wind and sun damage. The effect on anyone sitting in the bleachers is very dramatic. The sun is totally blocked while completely preserving the excellent viewing lines of the track. So fear not the Houston summer heat - come out and watch the next races under the shade of our newest track improvement.
