View Full Version : 2012 Winter Championship Go-Kart Series

Back again is our annual winter go-kart series. This is a championship series, but you are welcome to attend as often or few times as you wish. We are holding it at Grandprix Kartways at Downsview Park. The series is set up as such: Each event will include 3 heats of 15 laps each. The first heat is qualifying. The second heat starts as you qualified. The third heat starts in an inverse order of qualifying. So if you start on pole the first race you will start last the second race! This format has proved most successful in years past to keep the field tight! This has produced some of the finest indoor competition in years past. This year should prove likewise. The cost is $50 taxes included. You must be a member of Trillium to participate. Membership costs are $62.15 H.S.T. included for one year from the time of membership! You can register on-line to facilitate the process at www.trillium-bmwclub.ca. Food and beverage is available at the facility, and given that the karts are electric, it is reasonably quiet and odor free! Many tv's abound as well to watch other sporting events between heats and so on! The first race starts at 7pm sharp, so please arrive at 6:30 in order to allow plenty of time to register and attend the drivers meeting prior to the event starting.

Please Note: The karts will all be set to speed one. This is only done for their own racing league and us. Whenever you attend with the general public the karts are set to speed 2. This advantage is worth about 1.5 seconds a lap. The karts feel way more sprightly in this setting and is a lot more fun as power oversteer is definitely possible.

Where: Grandprix Kartways Downsview Park

75 Carl Hall Road
Bay 3, Unit #9
Parc Downsview Park
Toronto, ON
Canada M3K 2B9

416.638.5278

Cost: $50.00 Tax incl.

Annual Trillium Membership Fee: $62.15 Tax incl.

When: Sunday January 15 at 7pm
Sunday January 29 at 7pm
Sunday February 12 at 7pm
Sunday March 4 at 7pm
Sunday March 18 at 7pm


The points structure will work this way:

1st place = 10 points
2nd = 9 points
3rd = 8 points
4th = 7 points
5th = 6 points
6th = 5 points
7th = 4 points
8th = 3 points
9th = 2 points
10th = 1 point

There will be an additional 10 points issued to anyone racing in group one for every finish, and an additional 5 points issued to anyone racing in group two. There will be no additional points issued to an other groups. These are the bonuses issued for qualifying and running in the front groups. For Championship purposes, the best 4 out of 5 events will be included in the points total.

electric karts eh.... it definitely doesn't sound as fun

The electric karts are as or faster then the gas ones, plus the ventilation at the place last year was so horrible you went home with a bad headache and smelling like you poured diesel all over yourself.

Plus because you dont have fumes, it's actually better for traction. Last your it was a ice rink with cold concert and slicks at the gas place

The amenities are much better at downsveiw as well, you can get decent hot food and I think $11 pitchers.....

Is a BMWCC member allowed to bring a guest like last year?
Also roughly how late does this usually go? 9pm -10pm?

dble Trouble
01-09-2012, 10:31 AM
Yes guests are allowed. That's a reasonable assumption for ending time, but it depends on the number of people who attend. The last time we ran at GPK we averaged 23 participants and were out of there typically by 9:30. Hopefully that helps you gauge it?

Cool, added it to my blog:

Is there any official rules written anywhere? Didn't see anything on the trillium forum.

Regular gas karts don't sound great anyhow. They just sound like lawnmowers at constant full throttle. Now shifter karts, those are awesome (especially at Daytona http://axisofoversteer.blogspot.com/2012/01/bump-drafting-in-kart-on-daytona.html)

John, you should also send an email to Trillium members. I didn't see this post until Scott told me. I can't wait. Hopefully I can make most of the events.

Still fun even if it sounds like a lawnmower, reminds me of karting at Erbsville when I was young. It's unfortunate that there's nothing legit in terms of rentals around here for shifter karts. Best you can do is that arrive and drive league but those karts aren't very good.

So, a few of us went to check out GPK on Wednesday night after not being there for 2 years. The track layout is slightly different. Since it was public karting we were running at speed 2. It was fun because it was competitive but not exciting. Then the last run of the evening we pressured the guys to put us up to speed one..............and they DID! WOW, I forgot the difference. Our lap times dropped an average of 1.2 seconds but that doesn't tell the whole story, the feel was more impressive. One of the guys in our group that was there even said, I'm going to HAVE to come now because this is awesome! Just giving you all a heads up of what to expect! See you there!

I think T.Dot asked this already but we can bring guests right? Is there a different price for them? Or still 50$

jabela

Yes guests are allowed.
The cost is $50 taxes included. You must be a member of Trillium to participate. Membership costs are $62.15___

01-18-2012, 03:43 PM
Ah I see I misread that

T.Dot_E30
01-18-2012, 08:41 PM
It says you must be a member to participate, when I said bring a guest I meant bring them to participate.

Can a guest participate, yes or no?

dble Trouble
01-18-2012, 09:52 PM
Sorry, rereading that I see where there can be some confusion. A guest may participate on one occasion without being a member. If they come to a subsequent event they at that point must be a member. This typically applies to all trillium events with the exception for the driving schools. There, you MUST be a member as liability insurance dictates that.

It's kind of like a drug dealer, here try it you'll like it..........you try it, you get hooked, and you want more, but now it's going to cost you! LOL...........

Another great event. Had a blast!

Here's a vid of the first race in group 2. I had a sh it kart in qualifying. Venditti will attest to that since he had the same one in one of his races :D

at 5:10 (white flag lap) I nudged Abella in the last hairpin I think cause I got nudged myself....I forget but it threw him off, I let off and wanted to let him by cause I knew it wasn't clean....ish but the guy behind me was in it too so I said screw it and took advantage lol

Lets see those results!!!!!!!

Devon needs to get a whole nights worth of shitty karts. Actually two whole nights worth of shitty karts as his worst night will drop off, and the other night would be to actually pummel him in the points. I think he's the only one of the top runners who actually hasn't had a bad kart yet.

Group 2 Race 2 - Good battle with Dave, then the pileup at the end. I'm not sure why I didn't brake, maybe because we never use the brake. My foot isn't even touching it. It's also weird that my kart wasn't slowing down. I think I saw his kart moving and assumed he would take off, but he came to a stop instead.

Pretty fun final race. My gopro had a pretty good view.
I made up a few places from 2nd last but kept getting muscled out when trying to pass and ended up where I started.

^ Well... i can qualify but it seems I can't race a defensive line for sh1t :) (Cart 22, blue helmet, right in front of the camera) .. It's all over for me by 1:55...

… and what’s that at 0:39? That’s the carting equivalent of the soccer star feigning injury fcplm

Kinda dirty but necessary or else it would be a boring race. Because almost everyone knows how to keep their line and block, "nudging ;)" the guy in front of you before a turn is the only way to throw them off wide so you can get the inside. This was happening to me almost every turn (and the straights) as my helmet bashed against the back of the roll bar lol. It was very stressful keeping that lead :cool:
Am I ever gonna get a fast kart? *mumble* lol

Personally, I would disqualify anyone who spears someone in a turn, if you can't get by cleanly, then you don't deserve the position. There are always opportunities, you just have to be ready, plan and execute when possible.

when you say spearing, you mean t-boning? or nudging them before a turn?

Here are the final results for the Championship series. As is usual it came down literally to the last race of the evening to determine a winner. A big congratulations goes out to Kurt Dawson for winning the event in fine form and Devon Kring a very worthy adversary! Thank-you all who attended and helped make this years' winter go-kart series so much fun for all! Without further ado, the results are posted below.

Cheers,

John Venditti
