Event Information

Get ready for the ride of your life! You will compete against other drivers in a thrilling kart racing competition for top honors. Slide into the form fitting seat of a state-of-the-art, electric racing kart and let it rip on our a challenging parking lot race course.

Each participant will attend a drivers meeting and get a low-speed orientation lap of the course prior to driving a total of nine timed runs. The runs will be divided between three separate lapping sessions of three runs each, with breaks in between. This allows everyone to catch their breath and observe how other drivers drive the course. A computerized timing system will record each drivers' every lap. Results will be determined by counting each driver's fastest lap against the fastest lap of all other drivers.

Participation takes approximately an hour and a half. Please register for one of the four, ninety-minute sessions that will be held throughout the day. Participation is open to young adult and adult licensed drivers at least 16 years of age or older. The registration fee is $50 per driver, plus a $200 minimum fundraising commitment - OR - you may choose to pay a $250 registration fee and have no fundraising obligation. A three-person team may enter for $700.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are my financial obligations by registering and what is your cancellation policy?

If you elect to register by paying a one-time fee, you will be obligated to pay that fee unless you cancel your participation at least three weeks prior to the event or name a substitute driver to take your place.

If you elect to register by paying the nominal registration fee and then seek sponsors to fund the rest of your participation, you are responsible for delivering the amount of that pledge prior to the event. If you have not produced the pledge amount by the date of the event, you may still participate, but you will be responsible for making up the shortfall at on site check-in. If you have registered this way and you are unable to participate after registering, the donations of your sponsors are not refundable, but you may name a substitute driver to take your place any time up to the day of the event. You and / or your replacement driver are still responsible for delivering the pledge amount, however.

Where do I send people to make their sponsorship donation?

Once you register, you will automatically be provided with a link to your own profile page. On this page, you can add a profile photo and additional information for your prospective sponsors about your participation in the event. Your profile page is where your sponsors can donate.

Do I have to sign up sponsors?

No. You have the option of paying a single, $250 registration fee, which releases you from the obligation to raise sponsorship from donors.

Is there an age restriction to participate?

Participants must be at least 16 years old and have their drivers license. Any young adult participating who is between the age of 16 and 18 will need to have a parent or legal guardian sign a minor waiver for them at the on-site registration tent.

Where do the registration fees and sponsorship donations go?

100% of the event's net proceeds go directly to Uniquely You magazine to help fund the printing of additional magazines so that more special needs families in central Indiana can be informed of all the resources available to them. Miles Ahead, Inc. is paid a pre-negotiated fee to conduct the event.

What if it rains on the event date?

The rain date is the following day, Sunday, September 1, at the same location. The same session times will be observed. If the rain date is needed, additional communication will go out to all registered participants to confirm rain date arrangements.

Do I need any safety equipment?

Full face helmets and disposable head socks will be provided to all participants. You are free to bring your own helmet if you choose. No other safety equipment is needed. Please wear shoes, not sandals or high heels. Anyone with long hair will be required to tie it in a pony tail. No scarfs of any kind may be worn, including hijabs, as they may become entangled in the axle and / or gears of the kart, potentially causing serious injury.

Who can I contact if I have a specific question?

Please send an email with your question to info@bemilesahead.net
