United Karting Welcomes Christian Lomicka as New Race Director for the 2024 Season

United Karting is thrilled to announce the appointment of Christian Lomicka as our new Race Director for the 2024 season. With a lifelong passion for motorsports and a rich history of involvement in the racing community,

A Journey Fueled by Passion

Motorsports has been a lifelong journey for Christian, inspired largely by his grandfather's impressive collection of antique cars. Formative years spent immersed in the world of car shows, parades, and countless hours in the garage building his first go kart have culminated in a profound commitment to the sport. This deep-rooted passion was further channeled into a successful engineering career, driven by the mechanical prowess and trade skills admired in family.

Extensive Motorsports Experience

Christian's extensive experience includes volunteering for Red Bull’s Global Rally Cross events in DC and Atlantic City from 2012 to 2016, which evolved into a pivotal role as the crew chief for two grassroots Subaru rally teams. Competing across the northeast, he participated in renowned events such as the Empire State Performance Rally, Black River Stages, Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally, and Waste Management Winter Rally.

Deepening Ties with United Karting

In recent years, United Karting has been fortunate to have Christian as a part of our community during the summers. Following the departure of two rally drivers across the country, he found a new home with us, graduating from UK’s Compkart University in August of 2020. This commitment to motorsports and our community is a testament to his dedication and vision for the sport's growth in our region.

Commitment to Education and Community Engagement

Beyond the track, Christian has also volunteered for the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Collegiate Baja competitions, judging business cases, evaluating engineering designs, and supporting events. This includes involvement in this summer's Honda-hosted Baja SAE Ohio 2023 and assisting with the upcoming Baja event at Pennsylvania College of Technology this May.

Looking Forward

As Race Director, Christian aims to uphold United Karting's core values of safety, fairness, and fun, all while promoting the growth of motorsports in our region. With a storied background and an unwavering passion for the sport, we are excited for what the future holds under Christian's leadership.
