Mission Statement
The Vintage Karting Association (VKA) is established for the support of Vintage Go Karts originally manufactured from karting’s 1956 inception to those karts made in 1975. The VKA provides members a forum for communications, event support, technical expertise, equipment sources, shop resources, karts & parts classifieds, information exchange, fellowship, and camaraderie.

Vision Statement

The VKA vision is to grow Vintage Kart participation, further the acquisition, preservation, and restoration of Vintage Go-Karts in a safety minded venue. The VKA promotes the exhibition of these now historic machines, in both a Static Display format highlighting the restoration talents of our members, and Demonstration Events allowing members the opportunity to operate functional historical machines on a track recreating the look and excitement of actual competition events. The VKA hopes to create new friendships amongst members and non-members, renew old memories of those lucky enough to have witnessed karting in its early days, to educate today’s kart enthusiasts by showing them how it all began, and to pass this heritage on, ensuring the machines and attendant skills will not be lost in the future.

The VKCA has been formed as a non-profit corporation. The leadership of the club is a board of directors comprised of the following member elected officers; President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and Membership Director. There will be a variety of appointed board advisors that will not have voting privileges.
The five officers will serve a term of two years, with election dates staggered as follows:  VP, Secretary and Membership Director positions up for election in odd years, President and Treasurer positions will be up for election in even years. Member elections will be held annually to vote in the officers that are up for election in that year. The advisors shall be appointed by the Board and serve a term of one year.

The rules for this club have been formed for simplicity and enjoyment of the participant. Vintage kart track demonstrations are not intended to be a form of all-out competitive racing, but a means of celebrating the racing heritage of the karts while minimizing the risk to both karts and drivers.
The club intends to promote interest and activities for vintage karts by providing on and off-track events, open communication through regular newsletters and board participation in Web site forums, awards for member achievements( other than track performance), plus incentives and support for promoters to ensure their events will run smoothly and with the best opportunity to be financially viable.
VKCA events are for production race karts maintained as nearly as possible to their original specification for their era, and to be demonstrated in a sportsmanlike manner. VKCA demonstrations provide a margin which accepts the irreplaceable nature of a piece of racing history as taking precedence over the driver’s need to win. Flagged heat races at (some) events, provide that competitive track time needed for some drivers. Driving manners and respect for others’ safety and equipment is paramount! Cooperation between fast and not-so-fast is mandatory. The veteran respects the beginner’s right to the track, and the beginner respects the veteran’s right to motor to the extent of his ability and good judgment. The participant, whose only purpose is winning, has no place at VKCA events

Rear Engine Karts
Reportedly the biggest Vintage Karting Event in the world.
Certainly the very best venue to see extremely rare perfectly restored historic and Vintage american powered rear engined karts.
Held annually on labor day it should be on everyone's who loves vintage karts bucket list.
Rear is best understood by going to their site and reading a few things.
mostly their rules are Rear engined , american powered, fan cooled motors only.
they have STRICT tire rules.
There is a great swap meet held during the event with many rare and hard to find parts.
