Going fast is cool in more ways than one at PGP Motorsports Park. Did you know engines make more horsepower in cooler weather? If you haven’t experienced the thrill of racing inches off the ground on a state-of-the-art track, head out to PGP this Sunday because cool, rain-free weather is in the forecast for Round 2 of the Stars of PGP Kart Fall & Winter Series.
Saving money is also cool, so PGP will waive the non-member fee for all first-time visitors taking part in Round 2, which will be the final kart event of 2010. The remainder of the Stars of PGP Kart Fall & Winter Series will be on Sundays in 2011: Jan. 2, Feb. 6 and the finale on March 6.
Sunday’s event will run PGP’s tried-and-true race-day format, with practice, qualifying, heat races, and a main event. There will be 4-stroke and B-Spec rental classes as well as Rotax, TaG, shifters, Juniors and Seniors, Heavy, and 35 and over. Don’t worry about track time; our streamlined competition structure means you’ll get lots of time on PGP’s state-of-the-art asphalt track.
To register or for more information, visit www.pacificgp.com. Drivers looking to get some practice in before Round 2 should visit PGP from 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday.
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. The event will also be available for “on demand” viewing after Sunday by following the same link.
Although the weather-guessers are saying Sunday will be dry, racing at PGP is always 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.
PGP 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.
