How It Works

Round 1

The tournament begins with a total of 16 drivers. These drivers are then randomly placed into eight different pairs of two that will compete against each other in two 14-lap heats. After the end of the first heat, the paired drivers will swap go-karts with each other, and will then go out for their second heat of 14 laps in their rival’s kart. We’ll then take your single fastest lap time from each session 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 2

This round includes the 8 remaining drivers who will be paired up once more to compete in two 12 lap heats utilizing the same elimination format as the first round. The 4 racers who win their head-to-head challenge will advance.

Round 3

The remaining 4 drivers will compete in this semi-final round consisting of two 10-lap races utilizing the same elimination format as the first two rounds.  At the end of this round, two drivers will remain!

Round 4

The final round will feature the top 2 racers competing for maximum bragging rights in two epic 8-lap heats. The driver with the fastest average of those two heats will be the K1NG of Speed!


As you see, each driver will run at least two 14-lap races. If you’re fast enough, you’ll enjoy even more racing for the same price!

The Prize

The K1NG of Speed will receive an 10-Race Package valued at $250! Wow!

The buy-in is just $65, and with only 16 spots available, this event will fill up immediately.  Don’t delay–be sure to register for your spot online today!
