K1 Speed to Host Celebrity Charity Event for Harbor Interfaith Services
K1 Speed Blog - go karts, karting and go-kart race events
On Sunday, August 30th, 2009, we will be holding a celebrity charity event at K1 Speed Torrance to support the Harbor Interfaith Services organization. The HIS charity provides disadvantaged individuals with the tools, encouragement and support that they need to lift themselves out of poverty and onto a path of self-sufficiency, and has helped thousands of people improve their lives. We believe that the HIS organization does invaluable work and we are proud to be associated with them for this worthy cause.
The charity event will be open to the public (only $10 for spectators) and feature wheel-to-wheel racing action with more than 25 Hollywood celebrities from the world of entertainment and athletics. Among the celebrities currently expected to participate are Corey Feldman and Michael Rosenbaum, who played Lex Luther on the hit television show Smallville. Taking place between 11AM and 4PM, the event will feature a driver orientation meeting for participants, a celebrity introduction and race, and patron competition between 11AM and 1PM. The top 6 patrons will receive prizes and the individual with the fastest time of the day will be awarded a 4 day / 3 night stay at the Estrella del Mar vacation resort in Mazatlan, Mexico!
If you are interested in supporting a noble cause, experiencing the thrill of competition, and mingling with celebrities in one afternoon, join us on Sunday, August 30th for a fun-filled event that you will not soon forget! Our rider fees are $20 for a 14 lap race and spectators can watch the action from the sidelines and talk with entertainers and athletes for only $10!
