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 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.
