The next GCKI event will be the GCKI Fall 5 Race by Consolidated Communications on October 2nd, 2016. There will be some exciting, close open wheel racing as racers kick off the first race in the GCKI Fall Series championship points!
The public is welcome to come out to watch. Spectator passes are only $5, we look forward to seeing you at the track!
We have seen tremendous growth at our races this year. Our first three races had 68,72, and 91 race entries. 91 entries was a club record! As a result of these record participations, it is imperative that the parking and the pit space be done in an efficient manner. Please see the revised diagram showing the pit locations at the track. Each pit space is 10’ wide, and there are two spaces between the yellow posts. There should be only one pit space for each trailer, with the pitting out of the back, but not on the pit runners. Exceptions to this should only be for teams with three or more karts, then a second pit space may be used.
Our Saturday practice days are almost as busy as a race day, and many leave their trailers overnight for the race on Sunday. It is important that pitting on Saturday follow the same procedures as race day, one trailer per pit space. Please pit as near to the front as possible, without taking the sponsor’s pit area. This will allow a more manageable parking for those that arrive on Sunday.
Please note that the track will be closed this Friday thru Sunday for the TSRS race. No trailers are to be left on property after Thursday without permission of the race sponsor.
Red areas reserved for sponsors
Pit area is 10’ section (two pit spots between power poles)
One pit area per trailer, please pit out of the back
