We’ve listened to our fans’ requests and demands for a new reverse race in Anaheim and are happy to announce the very first Reverse GP on the current layout of our K1 Speed Anaheim indoor go kart track! Unlike previous Reverse GP races though, in which competitors drove in only one direction during the practice and qualifying sessions, this time racers will have to qualify going both clockwise and counter-clockwise! The average time of both runs will then determine the starting position for the final race. Drivers will have to quickly adapt to the nuances and idiosyncrasies of both layouts in order to consistently run fast, and it should result in some exciting qualifying sessions.
The race format for the event will include an 8 lap practice session in reverse (counter clockwise), a 10 lap qualifying session in the standard clockwise configuration followed by a 10 lap qualifying session in the counter clockwise configuration, and a 14 lap final race for position running counter clockwise. Needless to say, the reverse layout should result in some interesting racing, as the standing start dash into the first left-hand hairpin turn is going to be exciting! The entry fee for this unique and exciting event is only $50 and we believe is a great value. If you want to experience wheel-to-wheel racing at K1 Speed Anaheim and view the track in a whole new light, make sure to visit Thursday, October 1st! The first karts will hit the track at 7:00PM so show up early to register!
Update: Please note that this event has been rescheduled from September 30th to October 1st, 2009
