Each race distance will be dependent on the length of the configuration that will be used. The AMP Public Karting Series will begin on and continue every other Friday as shown above (Subject to change).
The staff at AMP is committed to providing an equal opportunity experience for the drivers involved with our karts. Each race week the karts will be inspected and equalized the day before the events.
Because of the nature of 9hp, 50 mph go karts, weight becomes the determining factor many times where skill is equal. Our drivers will be required to weigh in and receive equalization ballast to be placed on our karts, up to a max ballast of 45lbs. To assist in making sure we have the most equal weights as possible, the AMP Public Karting Series will be split into four classes GT, GT-Heavy, GT-Light and Youth-GT. The GT, GT-Heavy and GT-Light classes are open to drivers that are 15 years old and older. There will be a fourth class added should the demand be met for GT-Youth.
The GT-Heavy Class will consist of drivers who weight between 215-255lbs with equipment.
The GT Class will consist of drivers who weight between 175-215lbs with equipment.
The GT-Light Class will consist of drivers who weigh between 135-175lbs with equipment.
This class will consist of drivers who are younger than 15 years of age, a minimum of 85lbs with equipment, and who have shown relative aptitude to the series stewards of their driving ability.
Each week will provide a new set of challenges for the drivers. The cost for each race day is $89 or a discounted rate of $400 for the entire Summer Series. The winners will receive a 100% covered entry into the next Series. Only the first twelve drivers in each class will be guaranteed to race in our Summer Series with a minimum of 8 pre-registered drivers required to make a class viable. So get your reservation in now to firstname.lastname@example.org. A down payment of $25 / race is required with your reservation. ($50 for two races, $125 for the series etc).
There must be a minimum of 8 drivers fully registered via their deposit in a division to make the division viable.
Thanks for your interest…. TJ Halsema & Jim Fry
