Now that the 2016 season is shifting into high gear, we are very excited to share with you our scheduled 2016 capital improvements and our plan to implement a first class digital safety flag system for both our north and south circuits.
June 4-5 we have the unique opportunity to have the racing on the South track and the normal lapping on the North. With this added time we will be having the make-up race for the rained out April 10 Wings-n-Things race on Sunday June 5. That means Wings-n-Things racers will be racing both Saturday and Sunday. This also gives us the chance to have the Radicals and Pro Mazdas run separate races again.
Everyone, please look closely at the attached schedules as race times may be different then posted on the season schedule. Times have been built between races to allow car changes for those doing more than one event. We will do our best to provide enough time to make the swap.
Our first enduro is fast approaching!! June 11 will be the 3.5 hr enduro on the south track. This one will be done before sunset so no need for headlights. Get your team together now!
The other big racing weekend in June will be Festival of Speed June 17-19. This will be an action packed weekend with all of our race groups as well as the National Radical Cup series. You may sign up for all June races at this time.

The first race in the Autobahn Kart Racing Series will be on June 4.
Practice begins at 9:00 am with the first heat races beginning at 10:00.
Multiple classes are available for this series offering something for every type of kart.
The preliminary class breakdown will be as follows.
Class Age Kart Min. Weight (w/ driver)
Kid Kart 5-8 Wildcat 150lbs
Ignite Rookie 8-12 Ignite K2 250lbs
Ignite Junior 12-15 Ignite K3 320lbs
Ignite Senior 15+ Ignite K3 375lbs

Several classes will be highlighted with the new Ignite karts. 4 more have been delivered this week with another shipment arriving next week.
These karts will be integral in this summer’s youth and adult kart racing series.
The rules and classes for these karts mirror established regional and national classes, meaning a purchase of one of these karts allows you to run, not only with us, but at other tracks without any major changes.
The affordable pricing, sealed motors and spec rules will make this a great addition to the action at the kart track. The K2 chassis is designed specifically for the 8-12 year olds and the K3 fits those 15 yrs. and up.
The Margay Wildcat, with a 50cc motor, is great for the 5-8 year old racer in your family.
