WEEKLY COVID UPDATES

Well, I thought we were done with updates but I guess it is still 2020.  I intend to cover Gran Prix, Banquet, and track hours with this post.   

 

1.  Halloween Gran Prix — I dislike having to cancel this event (a tradition for 26 years) but do not see a date or way to run it this year.  Those that have prepaid for this event will get a full refund this week.

2.  Banquet — Well the weather (on a 10 day outlook) looks promising for the Sat Nov 7 date.  Remember to sign up this week.  Flyer on a previous post.

3.  Track hours — At this time, we intend to resume open track on Thurs morning with our normal 10AM till sunset hours.  We intend to be available for FNL and normal Sat/Sun hours.  Remember DST reset happens Sat eve.  We intend to answer the phone so give us a call with your request.

SUNDAY CLOSING

We will be closed on Sun Oct 25.  Since Matt has tested positive for COVID last week and we are not completely certain about all of the details surrounding a positive test, we choose to NOT be open for practice/rentals this Sun.  Stay tuned for further updates.                                                                                                   

HALOWEEN GP CANCELLATION

We have an unexpected twist to our 26th Halloween Gran Prix.  Matt went for a covid test earlier this week and got results this morning that he tested positive.  While he has no symptoms today, the fact remains he got a positive test.

This means we will be short staff but more importantly we feel we have a moral obligation to do our part in not spreading COVID.  Because this happened with VERY short notice, we see no other solution than cancellation.

Our advice is to wear a mask wherever you go and limit indoor activity as much as possible

TODAYS EVENT CANCELLED

We have wet conditions now, with forecast for heavy rain until at least noon.  This will activate a second race on the second rain date.  This means both rain dates are now double events.

Those that pre-registered were NOT processed for charges.  We need to consider banquet planning.  We reserved prior to COVID but what do we think is the smart thing to do now?

JR & SR League finals

Jr and Sr Leagues are finalized for the 2020 season.  The schedule was altered due to COVID but we saw some real competition regardless.  Our 2 eight week sessions were combined for one 12 week session, counting the 10 best for season trophies.  (See FB for pics)

It is now time to consider any changes for the 2021 season.  Jr’s mentioned running under the lights but that would mean a 2+ hour delay from this years schedule.  Do we need a weight min for Jr?(Maybe 130?)    Sr weight, min 180, saw all carry at least 7#, so should we lower to 175?  Do we schedule 3-8 week sessions, like Fridays?  Are the days and times good?

We passed out some trophy hardware during our pizza party at last event end with the following top 3:

JR   1st – Mak Regnerus                            SR   1st – Myles James

       2nd – Luke Norris                                     2nd – Kyle Lohmar

      3rd – Justin Naughton                               3rd – Brady Travis

Elite Karts on Track

Tags

Aug. 28th 2020

Elite Karts are 360cc Honda engine karts compared to the 200 and 270 karts that you can arrive and drive.  The Elite Kart also runs on the BIG Track – same as the Point Racers that own their own karts.  You can drive an Elite Kart but only after you have qualified and received permission from the track administrators.  These karts are as fast as the L206 racers even though much heavier and are a real challenge to drive.
