If you love the thrill and adrenaline of karting and racing but don’t have enough people to do your own event or just want to race karts regularly then our Open Race Night (for 16-year-olds and older) is perfect for you.
Held on alternate Wednesday nights, the race format is an Indy Grand Prix where each driver will take part in 3 x 5 lap heats and have a place in one of the 10 lap finals.
Each race in the heats is for points and the computer will try to give you a balanced position on the grid. For example the computer will try to put you to the front, middle, back consecutively for each of the heats. It will also try to mix up the groups taking part in each heat, but this is dependant on the number of people in the event and works better with more drivers.
At the end of the heats we will have a table of each driver’s accumulated points. If two or more finish with equal points, the computer will work out who had the fastest average lap times and move them to the top.
Your place in the finals is determined by how many points you accumulate in the heats and where you finish on the leader board. Everybody competes in a 10 lap final with people who finished on a similar points total to their own. For example, in an event with 18 drivers this would result in two finals of 9 drivers, leading to a runners-up final (with medals for the top three places), followed by a winner’s final. There are trophies for the top three places in the winner’s final, and bubbly for the overall winner.
The session costs only £20pp. All 16/17-year-olds must have a consent form completed and signed by their parent/guardian before racing.
