Stars of PGP Winter Series This Sunday

11/3/2010

The preliminaries are over, which means it’s once again time for some serious kart racing at PGP Motorsports Park as this Sunday, Nov. 7, is Round 1 of the Stars of PGP Kart Fall & Winter Series.

Because the kart competition on Oct. 17 was different from what our customers have previously come to expect — racers were given the chance to practice for the 14th annual Superkarts!USA SuperNationals — The Stars of PGP organizers have left that event to be scored as a standalone race.

Beginning with this Sunday’s event, the Stars of PGP Kart Fall & Winter Series will be a five-round competition, with additional rounds on Dec. 5, 2010; Jan. 2, 2011; Feb. 6, 2011; and the finale on March 6, 2011.

Both regulars and newcomers — non-member fees for out-of-state and first-time drivers will be waived on Sunday — will find PGP’s tried and true format in full operation.

The streamlined class structure ensures drivers get lots of time on PGP’s state-of-the-art asphalt track — with practice, qualifying, a heat race and final — and the ever-growing community of competitors means racers will enjoy great competition as well as fun and camaraderie off the track.

Feel the need for speed but don’t have the money for your own kart? Stars of PGP Kart Series events also include B-Spec (formerly Rental Kart) Class for arrive-and-drive races. With 36 karts available and PGP’s staff to help with setup, the B Spec class is the most inexpensive way to experience high-performance racing at a purpose-built motorsports venue.

Drivers looking to get some practice in before Round 1 should visit PGP from 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday.

PGP is also open to adding 4-stroke or any other well-participated classes to Stars of PGP Kart Series events. Groups interested in experiencing the thrill of racing at PGP please contact Paul Zalud at (206) 390-9858, or paul@pacificgp.com

There will be a live broadcast with commentary of Sunday’s event provided by eventbuilder.com and accessible through a link on the PGP website at www.PacificGP.com. Online coverage of this event may also see the debut of the chat option, allowing viewers to connect live with the broadcast and ask questions to the broadcast staff. The event will also be available for “on demand” viewing after Sunday by following the same link.

PGP also features power in the pits, free parking in a secure lot for overnight trailers, practice time available every day when other events are not booked and running well water. Near term upgrades include the installation of a permanent restroom and shower facility.

All racing at PGP is rain or shine. A substantial amount of time and money was spent during the construction of PGP to mitigate all water issues. More than two miles of drain pipe sits under the specifically formulated asphalt that includes additional polymers and hardeners that increase the traction in the wet. This means you can expect great racing rain or shine year round.
