    LSGP 2014 will again take place in Lockhart, Texas on March 1 &2 just 19 miles from the Austin airport.  We are really excited about the improvements being made to the streets by Lockhart and some of the infrastructure improvements our team is making.  We will have 20% more DOT plastic barricades and a new amber strobe light system at all of the corners.  You can follow us here on EKN and Facebook for up to the minute news and at http://www.lonestargrandprix.us for general news.  We will be updating the website in the next few weeks.  Online entry will open on 10.1.13 and you will find the process much simpler.

    We are really looking forward to having Texas Tony LaPorta, Rob Howden and Ken Walker in the broadcast tent for LSGP 2014. We are honored to have as much talent joining us on the broadcast as on the track.

    Classes will be limited to 45 karts and the adult classes continue to have the 20 kart minimum.

    We will run the same 10 classes as last year.

    The main events are increased to 15 laps.

    More  interviews and info coming.

    Thanks for continuing to follow us here and on Facebook. <span style=”color: #000000; font-family: Helvetica; font-size: 15px; white-space: nowrap; -webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(26, 26, 26, 0.292969); -webkit-composition-fill-color: rgba(175, 192, 227, 0.230469); -webkit-composition-frame-color: rgba(77, 128, 180, 0.230469);”>https://www.facebook.com/texaslonestargrandprix?ref=hl</span&gt;

    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

    Mod/ICC

    TAG Sr.

    TAG Masters

    KT 100

    Chonda

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Racers: Online entries are up 400% from where they were this time last year.  Stock Honda Light and Chonda will sell out.  We are looking at options for a last chance qualifier that will fit within the time constraints.  Enter online at http://www.lonestargrandprix.us

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

    Entries continue to look really good.

    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.

    The Best Western and Lockhart Inn both tell us that they are sold out for the LSGP weekend.  There are a few rooms still available at The Plum Creek Inn in Lockhart. http://www.plumcreekinn.net/index.html

    There is plenty of hotel space available in San Marcos, Texas which is 15 miles away.

    Only 5 spots remain available for the Stock Honda Light Class for LSGP 2014.  When those are filled we will start a waiting list for the remaining 5 grid positions on the 45 kart grid in the main event.  If needed we will run a short last chance qualifier  to determine those 5 final grid positions.

    MG is raising the price on a set of FZ tires slightly to $219 on January 1st.  Accordingly, LSGP will charge that price for tires  ordered  on or after 1.1.14.
