10th Annual Go-Kart Event
K1 Speed, Buffalo Grove, Illinois
Need to generate some adrenaline and shake off those winter blahs?
Join us for an evening of indoor go-karting fun. Our venue this year
will be K1 Speed, previously known as Chicago Indoor Racing. The name
may have changed, but the location is the same: 301 Hastings Drive,
Buffalo Grove, Illinois, 60089.
Besides the name change, there are a few other differences in this
event this year. The gasoline powered karts have been replaced by
european style, 20 HP electric go-karts. These electric karts produce
maximum torque at all speeds with no fumes, and are claimed to be
easier to drive.
It is no longer a team event... It's every man or woman for
themselves. Each driver will compete in a qualifying race of 16 laps
against 9 other drivers. Then, based on their qualifying times, each
driver will be put into one of 4 groups of 10 drivers for a
championship race of 18 laps. There will be a podium ceremony for the
top 3 of each of the 4 groups.
Registration is now done online, using the link,
and at the end of the registration form enter the event code: 18439.
Payment is made at the front counter as you check-in and finalize the
registration process. Registration fee is $44 per driver, Lotus Corps
members get a discount, and will be refunded $10.
Drivers are to check-in at K1 Speed at 5 PM to suit up and receive
driver's instructions. Racing will begin at 6 PM. The racing will take
about 2 hours, and there will be a post race party afterwards.
It should be a really fun evening. For any additional information,
