MEMBERSHIP ADD-ONS

Family Members

A Family Member must be directly related, or live in the same household. Only listed family member drivers enjoy the benefits of the membership (e.g. reduced Race and Practice fees).  Family Member Drivers expire with the Primary Membership.

Race Day Pit Spots

A maximum of 2 spots for each type of space is allowed per primary membership. IE: It is possible to purchase 2 Front Row and 2 Back Row, but not 3 Front Row.  Reserving a Pit Spot applies only to Club Races (not practice, and not outside races).  Reserved Pit Spots expire with the underlying membership.  Reserving a Front Row Pit Spot can be advantageous from a cost perspective if you race frequently, but also reserves your particular spot.  Back row spots are free on race day, but you may reserve a particular pit spot.

Front Row (1-59) Annual $250   (Non-Member Vendor $375)
Plan to increase to $300 on Oct 1, 2019

Back Row (60-177) Annual $50

Reserve Kart Numbers for Club Races

Members may reserve a kart number for a particular driver and class by emailing kartnumbers@pkra.com.  Preference will be given to those with prior use of that number, so please review past points or race results to find an unused number before making a request.  Also keep in mind that once reserved, that number cannot be used in that class by another driver outside of your family membership.  Don’t reserve a number if you expect to share your kart without changing the number.  These reservations may be visible to other members and possibly the public.

Membership Rules and Restrictions:

  • All memberships are for a term of 1 year.  Memberships nearing expiration (e.g. 1 month) may be extended for an additional year.
  • A Primary Member must be at least 18 years of age, and will have voting rights.  The Primary Member manages the membership for themselves and any other family members.
  • Multiple Family Member Drivers may be associated with a single Primary Membership, at dramatically reduced prices over separate memberships.
  • One or more drivers must be added to a membership to take advantage of the driver benefits (we have split this out as a base membership and the first driver).  This can be the Primary Member and/or family members (directly related or living in the same household).  Remember to add/extend family member drivers when you renew/extend your membership.
  • Memberships are purchased/renewed through MotorsportReg only.  Memberships are not available for purchase at the track.
  • You must Create or update a MotorsportReg account and add the club membership for Phoenix Kart Racing Association (this just associates the account / profile with the club) before you can purchase a membership. You normally use the same account for other motorsports registrations.
  • Each Family Member Driver must have their own profile.  It can be created and managed by the Primary Member (through a MotorsportReg “Account Relationship“).  Also add the club membership for PKRA (otherwise it is not visible to PKRA).  These family member profiles must be used to add that Driver as a Family Driver through this Membership purchase event, and later register for races as applicable.
  • The processing of membership purchases cannot be automated at this time, so the volunteer PKRA Membership Administrator will need to create or update your membership based on your purchases.  Please allow for up to 5 business days for this manual processing, and plan ahead for renewal prior to race entry.  There will be no refunds for paying non-member race entry due to not renewing membership in time.
  • PKRA will send a reminder for expiring memberships, but it ultimately the members responsibility to renew on time.  The membership expiration date is shown in the account profile in MotorsportReg.
  • MotorsportReg currently supports only membership purchases through events which must have specific dates.  Therefore, please ignore the portion of the messages that refer to time frame.  The PKRA Membership Administrator will update your membership expiration date to one year from purchase or current expiration date as applicable.
  • Family Driver and Pit Spots may be added to the Primary Membership, but they expire with the underlying Primary Membership.  You may also upgrade from a Bronze to Silver Membership, but the expiration date will not change.  There is no mechanism for proration.  Making an addition or upgrade later in a membership may therefore not be to your advantage from a cost perspective.
  • Reserving a Pit Spot applies only to Club Races (not practice, and not outside races).  Reserving a Front Row Pit Spot can be advantageous from a cost perspective if you race frequently, but also reserves your particular spot.  Back row spots are free on race day, but you may reserve a particular pit spot.
  • Membership lists with primary member names, expiration dates , membership levels, family member drivers, and pit spot reservations may be available to the public through the PKRA and/or MotorsportReg web sites.

Support
Support for account management and payment is provided by MotorsportReg through self help functions, documentation, and email support.  Support for Membership status and specifics of event registration is provided by PKRA through membership@pkra.com.

You may also contact membership@pkra.com to delete duplicate accounts.  We can create separate logins for “child” accounts after you change their email address.  We can also tie an existing profile to yours as a “child” account.

PKRA requires the completion of the following MotorsportReg profile data for specific purposes:

  • Your email address is used for almost all business communication from PKRA staff as well as MoptorsportReg confirmation and reminder emails.  Profiles created from a single account will have the same email address by default, and won’t have separate logins.  The email can be changed, and you may request we then create a login account for that profile.
  • Emergency Contact information is required for obvious reasons, and will be made available to track personnel.
  • Phone Number may be used by PKRA staff if needed, but the preferred method of contact remains email.
  • Mailing Address is used for mailing membership cards.
  • Birth date is used for verification of the Primary Member age requirement and child class applicability.
  • If you or a family member will race at PKRA Club Races, you’ll need to set up at least one vehicle for us to pull the transponder number from.  If you rent a transponder, you will still need to set up a vehicle and leave the transponder field blank.  If you set up multiple vehicles, you may use the free form color field to identify each since that field is shown on vehicle selection;  it may make sense to put the transponder number in the color field as well as the transponder field.  These vehicles are available for use in registration by any of the family member drivers.
  • Members may reserve a kart number for a particular driver and class by emailing kartnumbers@pkra.com.  Preference will be given to those with prior use of that number, so please review past points or race results to find an unused number before making a request.  Also keep in mind that once reserved, that number cannot be used in that class by another driver outside of your family membership.  Don’t reserve a number if you expect to share your kart without changing the number.  These reservations may be visible to other members and possibly the public.
  • Race Registration (name, class, number) may be visible to the public
