World Karting Association
The World Karting Association (WKA) is a membership-owned, non-profit corporation formed in 1971 to regulate and promote the sport of competitive go-kart racing. The WKA establishes the rules and procedures to set standards by which to sanction tracks and to conduct annual championships for various types of karting. In the 1990s WKA grew to over 10,000 active members and 120 sanctioned tracks nationwide to make it the largest sanctioning body for kart racing in the United States and one of the largest in the world. Today, WKA maintains between 3,000 and 4,000 active members, which are located in over 40 states, Canada and Europe.
