Karting Korner – May 24th 2017

Memorial Day weekend means remembering the fallen, warm weather, and of course go karts! American’s love a good race and the American flag will be waving as you do your patriotic duty by driving our rental fleet at 50mph. The weather looks great this weekend so be sure to make this part of your weekend plans.

The Kart track will be open Thursday 11am-7pm for Late Night Thursdays and 9am-5pm Friday through Sunday. It will be closed Sunday May 28th from 3pm-4pm for a private event.

Ignite Traveling Series

Do you own your own Ignite Kart? Looking to join your fellow racers? The Margay Traveling Ignite Series is coming to Autobahn Country Club June 9-10th. Experience the thrill and catch all the excitement of this 60+ mph karting series. Don’t have a kart? Margay is offering Arrive and Drive options with a kart, team mechanics and other support services. Contact [email protected] to register.

Rain, Rain…go away

The second planned Kart League race was postponed due to inclement weather. Saturday June 3rd at 2:30pm is the rescheduled date. The later start time will allow for more racers to attend and will feature the new kart track extension. Weights will be required for this race and the kart track does not have any on hand. Schedule your race preparations and put your weight orders asap by contacting [email protected].

Late Night Thursdays Get Even Later in June


That’s right, you get to sleep in on Thursday and still make the first session on track.

Or have plenty of time after leaving work to make it out for a few evening sessions and some food cooked on the patio.

This opportunity will last all summer!

Car Show and Vintage Race

Show and Shine and Burning Rubber

Festival of Speed is quickly coming so it’s time to start waxing those vintage cars you have in the garage. One of the best ways to get rid of those winter cobwebs is by blasting down the main straight at Autobahn. On June 17th Autobahn will be hosting a car show for various makes and models and hosting a vintage car race. Dress to impress in the appropriate clothing for your car. It’s time to pull out your bellbottoms and your 70’s muscle car or your driving scarf and goggles in your 1920’s Model T. Come out and join in the fun!

Paving Alert

Areas of the south access road are scheduled to be repaved June 12-13. This will include the areas from the Delta House to the Phase 4 road. Limited access may be available for brief times during this process.
