The popular Rental Kart League Racing is the perfect progression from drop-in open session racing to organized, competitive, gridded up racing. This is your opportunity to get in on the fun and excitement of affordable, thrilling go karting competition at an affordable cost! All Rental Kart League Racing events are open to the public and no previous racing experience is required, nor is a track competitive license required to race in these events. We provide the karts, fuel, tires, helmets, driving suits (rain gear, if needed) and fabulous racing venue. You just show up on the morning of the event ready to race! Come to all races or pick and choose those you can make it to. With PGP’s league racing there is no commitment required to race the entire series, but once you’ve tried it you may be hooked!
The 2013/14 Fall and Winter Rental Kart series will highlight a change to the racing format to include an additional heat race in each event. The first session of each event will become a Practice/Qualifying which will determine starting positions for the Heat races based on fastest lap of the session. The second and third sessions will be a wheel to wheel heat races for position. Drivers finishing position in the first heat will set their starting spot for the second heat. The finishing order for the second heat will set the grid for the event final, giving drivers more opportunity to work their skills into a better grid position for the final event. All drivers will advance to the final race of the day.
The 2013/14 Fall and Winter series will also bring the return of the “Rain Points Bonus”. In any race event deemed to be a wet weather race, all competitors will be awarded an extra 50 points towards their season point total.
Classes are divided into two divisions: Pro-Am and Pro. Our race officials are happy to assist with determining the appropriate division for you based on lap times and experience. Drivers who are new to the sport or have minimal experience in an organized race should consider our Sunday morning Amateur Kart Racing. Trophies are awarded each race to the top 3 in each class. Championship awards will be presented at the end of each series to the top 3 in each class, who have attended a minimum number of races in that series.
Due to the high demand of the league races, pre-registration is strongly encouraged to reserve your kart. You may also register the morning of the race before 8:30am, but day-of event entries cannot be guaranteed. Each event will start with a Driver’s Meeting at 8:45am and racing begins promptly at 9:00am. Entry fees are $85.00 per event with membership ($95.00 per event for non-members). Note: Minimum age is 15yrs. for all league racing.
And remember, as always – all Rental Kart League Racing events will run year-round, rain and shine!
