Sunday is shaping up to be the best day of the weekend in more ways than one. The Weather Channel (www.weather.com) forecast calls for a dry day with partly sunny skies and a high near 50 — perfect weather for finale of the Stars of PGP Kart Fall-Winter Series.
Even if you missed the first four rounds leading up to the finale, Sunday is a perfect chance to get seat time at the region’s premier racing venue in preparation for the start of the 2011 edition of the Stars of PGP Kart Series beginning next month with Round 1 on Saturday, April 23.
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 Rental Kart (B-Spec) 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 the finale 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 at the top of the PGP website at www.PacificGP.com.
Based on customer feedback, we’ve made adjustments to make viewing events at PGP easier than before. Now you won’t need to enter any information, just click on the link and watch. The event will also be available for “on demand” viewing after Sunday by following the same link.
The 2011 edition of the Stars of PGP Kart Series will be eight races, four Saturday-only events and two dual Saturday-Sunday events. A new perk for 2011 is the extension of PGP’s race weekend format to give competitors exclusive use of our track for practice on Fridays, beginning with April 22.
Even if the weather-guessers are wrong about Sunday, 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.
