Inverness City Announces Grand Prix Event Details
The Inverness Grand Prix & Motorsports Festival, is set for November 18-19, 2016 in downtown Inverness, announces the entertainment and race class list for this 2-day event.
Friday, Nov. 18, 2016 will kick off at 5 p.m. with vendors and music. Starting at 7 p.m. is a free concert by regional favorite Stormbringer. While the concert is underway, event volunteers will transform the streets of downtown into a race track. Street races start at 10 a.m. on Saturday.
One of the event founders and race directors, Harry Lewis, explains, “this is the only street race in the southeastern United States, making it a rare opportunity for karting enthusiasts. It is 3/8 mile course that offers challenges from road surface, five turns and a 680-foot back stretch where karts have been clocked at 72 miles per hour. It is a big job preparing the track and ensuring safety.”
