Western Canadian Challenge officials have announced that the 2013 championship event will take place at the Warburg Racing Park facility in Edmonton, Alb., on July 26-28.

Hosted by the Edmonton & District Kart Racing Association, the revamped WCC will feature the best Rotax drivers from Western Canada, and likely from around the country going head-to-head at Warburg Racing Park in search of both top honors and a Team Canada drive at Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals.

For Patrick Moreau, coordinator of the WCC, this announcement is a milestone for the new season.

“The Western Canada karting community covers a very large territory, and when the time comes to find a place for an important event such as the final event of the WCC, there are many criteria to take care of. The track itself and the facility, the location, and considering the long distances some competitors must travel, the commitment of the local club in the organization are the most important. I think the fact that Alberta is a central point for the community and the layout of the track will attract many competitors, and will provide a very challenging competition. The WCC final is the first Canadian event which will qualify drivers to participate at the 2013 Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals. The fact the Grand Finals are taking place in North America this year [New-Orleans, La.] will be an additional motivation for Canadian drivers to be there. Don’t forget that Micro-Max and Mini-Max classes will be on the program of the RMCGF, and the WCC will offer three spots in each of these two classes.”

For the EDKRA’s representative, Kevin Dowler, the Warburg kart track is a well kept secret.

“The new Warburg kart track is a fairly new facility [first race in 2010], but every year brings improvements. The first step was of course the track itself, but money is invested every year in order to continue to improve the facility and offer competitors a fantastic environment. After the timing tower, which can be operated even in case of power failure and the addition of electrical terminals in many areas of the paddock, this year will bring a new weight scale and technical inspection building. The club will put all necessary efforts to prepare a top class event.”
