Gulf Coast Karters will be hosting it's very popular Winter Blast race again for 2013. This will be a “fun” race intended for everyone to come out and shake a little bit of the winter cabin fever and tune up for the coming race season. It will be a race-for-honor with certificates awarded to each class’ top three finishers (and all participants in kid karts.)
This race will also serve as a fund-raiser for GCKI to kick off the 2013 in a positive way. Track worker volunteers are being sought to offset the cost to host the race. All workers will immediately gain 110 worker points applicable towards the spring 2013 season – positions for corner workers, grid and scales are open. Racing friends from neighboring tracks are welcome, and all racers on this day will pay GCKI member entry fees (a substantial discount form non-member race fees.) Spectators are welcome $5 per person over 5 years of age.
Due to the possibility of inclement weather the following conditions are in effect to ensure the safety and comfort of all involved. The Winter Blast will not be conducted as a “Rain Race.” The Winter Blast will only be held if race day temperature exceeds 45 degrees F by 11:00am on race day. We hope to see a big field turn out for the fun and competition.
