Founded in 2005 the TaG Masters Championship Series has become one of the largest Masters programs in the country. The Series is an independent racing group that uses rules from common Kart Racing Sanctioning bodies. This provides a stable platform from one season to the next while ensuring a safe, competitive and a cost conscious environment for it members.
The purpose of the TaG Masters series is to offer a racing platform for adult racers 35 and older to participate in a format that fits busy schedules. The 2013 Series schedule consists of 10 events races from May through September at two historic kart facilities in southern Wisconsin.
The series is a member driven organization. Each year members are surveyed on numerous issues related the series with that input being used to develop the following year’s program.
The Series is based on a TaG, Touch and Go 125cc water cooled engines, platform. Drivers are free to select from numerous chassis and engine options as long as they are within compliance of the 2013 WKA TaG Masters technical specification. In order to controls costs the series limits drivers to 4 sets of Bridgestone YLB tires for use in all qualifying, heat, pre-final and feature races. The Series runs Race Spec gas.
The race format used by the Series includes both qualify and random draw/pea pick formats. Points are awarded for all qualifying, heat, pre-final and feature races. The Series also hosts an awards banquet at the completion of the last race of the season with awards being presented to the top 5 championship finishers.
Race grids typically average between 16 and 20+ karts with a 1 second to 1.5 seconds difference covering 85% of the field. The racing is fast, close and intense.
It’s been said that getting old is mandatory, but growing up is optional. If you agree then consider the TaG Masters Series Championship where the drivers may be aging, but racing never gets old.
