PRICES:
Galletta's Kart Club is a free, not-for-profit, backyard racetrack. We operate as a weekly point series raceway (Summer Sundays) only on nominal, bare-bones donations. For a regular-season race:

Spectator =
Free. Donations welcome.
Race your own kart =
$3-5 donation to Matt, or donated goods/services.
Race a Galletta's Kart =
Veteran: $15 donation.
Rookie: $15-20 donation.
(Why? Rookies wreck more and race TWO features if they qualify!)
A copy of your own race's DVD =
$5 per DVD.
Each DVD contains the entire evening of racing from up to two camera angles (and sometimes more!).

These are not fees. The nominal Donations cover the gas and parts for 12 equalized Galletta-type racing karts, in addition to electricity for lights, water, and none of the above ever cover a tip for Matt's work for the track. Matt prepares 12 racing karts out of his own wallet every single year, always in the red, and the donations never once have covered gas and parts. We run for no profit. Why do we do it? (1) the fun of economical, equalized racing and (2) avoidance of kart tracks that only exist to make money and allow unethical biases, cheating, and fighting.

Galletta's Karting Club "Basic Info" PageWelcome! We are a Karting Club that created an inexpensive alternative to "competitive karting." We invented and organized a race series of extremely affordable Single Wheel Drive "Gas stocker" karts for a Points championship every summer at Galletta's Greenhouse Karting Speedway. We have over twelve karts, many of which are available to be raced every weekend, so new drivers are always welcome. Hybrid between an WKA-type flat-kart kart (but far cheaper) and a yard kart (but far faster and more durable) built to race on any dirt track - backyard or racing facility - the most affordable professional, competitive karting series in the world. Pro racers who've tried it often say they have the most fun racing with us. Tough economy? Race for mere pocket change. We also record every race and make them available on DVD! Want to race? You are invited to join our economical racing club. The weekly karting club race series starts in June and lasts through October. Enjoy the site!


Galletta's Karting Club - 2010 Season, Event #6 - Sunday, July 11th, 2010:
George Russell wins the 45-Lapper at Galletta's of Oswego - his 1st career feature win!

2010 Season, Event #6- Sunday, July 11th, 2010 - Driving the Galletta's Greenhouse #6 kart, George Russell, won his 1st feature race at Galletta's Sunday. He became the 7th different winner of 7 features so far this season at Galletta's, including the 5th 1st-time first feature winner so far at John J. Galletta Memorial Karting Speedway. The racing, again, is just so close (the karts are closely matched, the drivers are all experienced, and the handicap system has been working wonders) that passes are rare and starting handicapped up front is vital for your chances. George took the lead on lap 2 from starting in 3rd place via a pass for the lead on an early restart. Here he poses with his son, Shadoe, who won a 5-lap make-up race - his career first win as well. Points, race results and pictures are here and videos are catching up and will be up to date soon! Thanks for reading!

 

Before the heats, we held another 5-lap Make-up race, which enables drivers who have missed races (due to work, family, travel, special occasions) to make-up points and stay in the points championship. They are credited as being tagged on at the end of the show that they missed accordingly. What made it extra exciting is that Shadoe Russell drove a strong race from the pole and won, proving how the Doe man is making great strides and improving all the time!
