Welcome to the info & registration page for our arrive & drive twilight kart enduro on the 5/8 mile VIR Kart Track during the NASA Mid Atlantic weekend on the full course. It will be on Saturday night March 21st 2015 for 120 minutes, starting at 6:30pm and ending at 8:30pm. Please click here for more information about our kart enduros.
This is an "arrive and drive" event so the karts will be provided. They are 270cc Stratos karts and the track is run clockwise. This enduro is only open to teams of two or more drivers, and at least three pit-stops will be mandatory (stop & go pit stops are allowed; the idea is to make things more equal for teams with additional drivers.) NASA membership is not required to participate. Spectating is free and encouraged. Consumption of alcoholic beverages by any driver is not permitted.
The team captain and all drivers should be at the kart track by 45 minutes prior to race start time for registration and the drivers meeting. All drivers must be 18 years of age with a valid drivers license, or under 18 with a minor waiver and parent or legal guardian present (please contact Jon Felton first if any member of your team is under 18.) All drivers must wear, at a minimum: closed face helmet, gloves, closed toe shoes, safety neck collar. Pants and long sleeve shirts are recommended but not required at VIR. Gloves, neck collar, head sock and helmets are available to borrow from the track at no additional cost.
There is no qualifying for this race. Starting positions are assigned randomly at the drivers meeting. There will be a Le Mans Start and several pit stops/driver changes per team. At the end of the 120 minutes, the team that has gone the furthest distance shall be declared the winner. Trophies will be awarded for first, second, and third place finishes. Rough driving is not allowed and is grounds for immediate ejection and disqualification. Point-by signals are strongly recommended. Spare karts will be on hand in case of mechanical failures. Refueling will not be necessary.
The person signing up below will be considered the team's captain and point-of-contact. Please list your team's name in the "Sponsor" or "Additional Comments" field. Also please note two registration choices: just this race, or 15% off to sign up for this race plus the three other 2015 races (May 2, July 18, Oct 10) right now.

3/16/15 UPDATE: We are now on WAITING LIST status. The only way to get a Waiting List spot is to register for one below, await confirmation of an available team entry, and be at this race anyway - worst case we will know during the drivers meeting if we have any no-shows. IF we do not have a spot for you, that Waiting List entry will be automatically applied to the next race (5/2/15 during Hyperfest.) Thank you!
