We have made a number of updates to the LSGP website in preparation for the opening of online registration on 10.1.13. The competition schedule is updated as well as other parts of the site. Take a look at http://www.lonestargrandprix.us.
We have also finalized the process for the selection of the LSGP driver who will attend the 2014 Granja 500 in Brazil courtesy of MG Tires. The winners of the following classes will appear on stage at the end of the awards presentation and draw from a hat to determine the driver who attends the Granja:
Stock Honda Light
Stock Honda Heavy
The Granja is a world famous endurance race regularly raced by F1 and Indy Car racers and takes place in late November or early December each year.
The spec tire for all classes for LSGP 2014 will be the MG Yellow and you will purchase it online from LSGP for $212 per set. You must qualify and race on the same set of tires. You may practice on the tire of your choice.
Look for move interviews of LSGP racers on our FB page over the next few weeks including Ms. Sabre Cook, Josh Lane and others.September 16, 2013 at 6:25 am #10028

The Chonda Class at LSGP 2014 will have 2 divisions. The minimum weight for the Light Division is 385 lbs. The minimum weight for the Heavy Division is 405. The classes will race together but be scored separately. Last year this affordable spec class had 37 entries. This year we expect it to reach the maximum limit of 45 karts for the whole class.September 30, 2013 at 6:46 am #11721
The weights that we proposed for the Chonda class are too high. Current feedback is suggesting 365 for the Light Division and 395 for the heavy Division. That would put our Light Divisions at close to the weight for most club’s Medium Class but our thinking is that it is easier to add weight than take it off. We will continue to keep you posted on the discussion.October 1, 2013 at 6:28 am #11807

Reminder: The price of entry increases at midnight on 10.31.13.

We have had some questions about why racers must purchase a set of tires from us. Thank you for the questions.
We sell the tires to cover the cost of the race including the KRN Broadcast, jumbotron, barricades and other materials needed to put on the race.
In order to keep the costs down we only require you to purchase one set of tires no matter how many classes that you race on them. You may purchase up to 1 set of tires for every class that you race in. All qualifying and racing will be done on MG tires purchased from LSGP.October 31, 2013 at 7:21 am #14377
The Stock Honda Light class is filling up quickly with 10 spots left before we get into the waiting list and the last chance qualifier for the final 5 spots on the grid.
The TAG Sr class is not far behind.
