2023 King of Speed Event Dates
MONDAY, May 22nd
MONDAY, November 20th – CANCELLED
How Do I Sign Up For King of Speed?
Registration starts at 7:00pm at the center the night of the event. Racing begins promptly at 7:30pm. The cost for this event is just $55 per person.
Here’s how this unique competition works:
FIRST ROUND: 16 Drivers, Two 12-Lap Races
The tournament begins with a maximum of 16 drivers. These drivers are then randomly placed into eight different pairs of two that will compete against each other in two 12-lap heats.
After the end of the first heat, the paired drivers will swap go-karts with each other. Then they’ll go out for their second heat of 12 laps in their rival’s kart.
We’ll then take your single fastest lap time from both sessions and determine your average fastest lap. The driver with the fastest average lap time from the two heats and two karts will advance to the next round.
As you can see, it’ll be the driver that really makes the difference since you’ll be driving the same equipment.
ROUND TWO: 8 Drivers, Two 10-Lap Races
The next round includes the 8 remaining drivers, who will be paired up once more to compete in two10-lap heats utilizing the same elimination format as the first round.
ROUND THREE: 4 Drivers, Two 8-Lap Races
From there, the remaining four drivers will compete in two8-lap races to determine the top-two drivers.
ROUND FOUR: 2 Drivers, Two 8-Lap Races
Those top-two drivers will then compete for maximum bragging rights in two 8-lap heats. The driver with the fastest average of those two heats will be the King of Speed!
As you see, each driver will run at least two 12-lap races. If you’re fast enough, you’ll enjoy even more racing for the same price! The top two will get EIGHT races!
And get this: the K1NG of Speed at each center will receive a FIVE-RACE PACKAGE valued at over $100! Wow!
The buy-in is just $55, and with only 16 spots available, we expect these events to fill up sooner rather than later. So, make sure you arrive ON TIME at 7:00pm for registration!
Sorry kids, this competition is just for racers 4’10” or taller.
**NOTE: King of Speed requires at least 8 racers for the tournament to operate smoothly. If less than 8 racers have entered, this event may be canceled at your local track. Additionally, if we have more than 8 racers but less than 16, we will only run the first 8 drivers who signed up and will refund the rest.**
