Championship: City & State Champions Announced!
Last weekend was action-packed at K1 Speed locations across the United States as qualified World Championship racers competed at their local K1 Speed to become their city’s champion. The competition was done in a Challenge GP format: one practice session, two qualifying sessions, and a final race for position among the location’s best.
In California, Texas, and Illinois, those City Champions went on to compete for the State Championship. Races were run as a Challenge GP race in a reverse track layout in order to help diminish any advantage to the one racer who regularly races at that location.
Here’s a list of all the racers who came out on top by weekend’s end.
