World Championship UPDATE: Final Stretch!
There’s just one month left to earn the 4,000 K1RS points needed to qualify for the inaugural K1 Speed World Championship and have a chance at winning the $15,000 Prize – the largest of any indoor karting championship! Even more racers have now met the points requirement, with more than a handful of drivers just 200 points away from getting there.
Let’s see what our current tally looks like.
The Qualified: 4,000 Points
An additional 11 racers have joined the previous 59 racers that had qualified by the end of last month, bringing the total tally so far to 70 racers!
They come from the following locations:
San Diego | Atlanta | Santa Clara | Phoenix | Irvine | Concord | Sacramento | Houston | Anaheim | San Francisco | Denver | Dublin | Ft. Lauderdale | Kapolei | Austin | Dallas | Addison | Buffalo Grove | Redmond | Carlsbad | Torrance | Ontario | Salt Lake City
As you can see, Ontario and Salt Lake City now have joined the list of locations that have a qualified racer, bringing the total to 23 locations have at least one qualified racer. With only one driver near Ontario and Salt Lake City, it’s looking likely that these racers will enjoy a default City Champion status without enduring the nail-biting K1NG of Speed competition in some other hotly-contested locations.
If you’re several hundred points away from 4,000 – don’t fret! You can STILL get the points needed to qualify! Make sure you race with full fields and dominate to get maximum points quickly!
When is the Competition to Determine the City Champion?
We’re starting to iron out the dates for the competition that will determine the City Champion. Stay tuned next month for this information!
