      Seems this event is drawing some new and old runners. 125 laydown has seen karts that haven’t touched a track in years. 125 stock is growing and will see imported runners taking a shot at the title. Let’s dance ladies… ;-)

      Okay all thank you for your patience. Here is an update for the Grand Nationals.

      Several items have been changed in the schedule from the original. Please take a look at the schedule make notes for your classes. As always there is the possibility that we have to move the daily schedule a bit due to track requirements etc. We will hold to what is printed as tight as possible.


      We will be able to load into the track Wednesday evening. Gates will open at 7:00PM we will be entering through the back gate as there will be drag racing going on. See the below map on route to get to the back gate.
      All other days entry will be through the Start/Finish line gate.
      We will have registration open Wednesday evening at 7:00PM till 10:00PM and hope that you take advantage of the time to complete your registration. Camping will be allowed Wednesday evening.
      Wednesday practice is controlled by John Sullivan. We will work with John on the practice if it is a go.
      When you come to registration you will need the following items
      1. CURRENT IKF MEMBERSHIP CARD. YOU WILL NEED TO SHOW IT TO THE REGISTRATION PERSON, OR YOU WILL BE PURCHASING A NEW IKF MEMBERSHIP. NO EXCEPTIONS THIS IS THE GRANDS.

      We WILL NEED TO BE OFF OF THE TRACK THURSDAY EVENING AT 4:00PM.
      So we will be running the schedule very tightly on Thursday. So please be on grid and ready to go when you are called up.

      Your kart will need a tech sticker for the day to be able to go on to the track for practice. Each day will be a different color.
      In order to get your tech sticker you will need to fill out a tech sheet completely turn it into the tech person to receive your tech sticker. The tech person can request to see your kart or your personal safety equipment at anytime.
      (word to the wise here. have all your stuff ready to be looked at when entering the tech area for pre tech)

      FOOD
      There will be NO Concession stands available at the track. So please purchase your needed food stuff’s prior to the event. There are restaurants outside the track and grocery store at the each exit off of I-5 north and south of the track.

      Update.

      There is a misprint on the schedule. 80cc Laydown class weight is printed wrong. The weight should be 410 pounds not 420 as printed.

      Please make a note of it.

      Thanks

      Mike

      Are your Yamaha KT100 classes laydowns or sit ups?  If you guys have Yamaha laydowns, I would like to try to come out next year.  I was under the impression that this class was dead in IKF land.

      Sorry Chris, Yamahas are laydowns and we get about 6-8  on average.  *80 laydown and Yamaha are about the two laydown classes left out here. ICE and Unlimited are decent numbers too.

      Results are on Mylaps and the IKF website.
