The IKF Region 6 Gold Cup and The management team at SIMA Kart Racing Facility have agreed to move forward and host the Gold Cup event in Sumas WA on August 18-20 as originally scheduled. We all apologize for the confusion, hard feelings and animosity that has been created.
We hope this demonstrates, to the NW region, SIMA's and GC leadership ability to work with through disagreements in areas we feel pose a threat to the sport as a whole and set a precedence for others to follow.
Most importantly, we want to emphasize the use of the 2017 IKF and NW Gold Cup rulebooks and what is agreed upon, discussed and enforced throughout the year. Whether you reflect on this decision negatively or positively, we invite you to be pro-active each year in the Gold Cup Conference in November so we can strengthen the series together as a whole and look forward to the future.
Moving forward we are also excited to announce that we will have over $1000 in prizes to be raffled off to each entered driver at the event during the podium ceremonies!! Along with these raffled prizes we also have had sponsors come on board to award prize pay outs in the L0206 Sr, Tag Sr and shifter class. The prize fund will be awarded on Sunday and based on the combined results of Sat and Sunday.
See you at the track,
SIMA Management and IKF Region 6 Gold Cup
