Participant ProfileJoan Williams
Carver Grand Prix
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 own parking lot race course at New Life Church!
Each participant will attend a drivers meeting, then get a low-speed orientation lap of the course prior to driving a total of nine timed runs. The nine timed runs will be spread 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.
Individuals and corporate competitors are welcome. Individual results will be determined by each driver's overall fastest lap. Results among corporate teams will be determined by adding the fastest single lap times of each team's fastest three drivers. The winning team will be the one with the lowest sum.
Participation takes approximately an hour and a half so please register for one of the four, ninety-minute sessions that will be held throughout the day. Entry fees are as follows:
Individuals (16+ years and older with driver’s license) - $50.00 per driver
