NEQ Go-Karting Endurance Race and Social
On Saturday November 22nd from 4:00 PM to 8:30 PM
We had a great time at the last NEQ Go-Karting team endurance race, and now it’s time for another. Cold weather and winter can’t stop the need for speed so let's fire it up!
The event starts at On Track Karting in Brookfield, CT. There will be 15 teams of 3 people each competing for gold, and each person will get up to 30 min of seat time (if desired) as we rented the track for 1.5 hrs. The race will start with a 5 minute qualifier round for grid position and teams will pit in to change drivers throughout the race. No karting experience is required. This a friendly competition, and no trophies will be awarded (just bragging rights).
Following the event, we will drive 3 miles down the road to Maggie McFly’s sports bar where we have rented 3 adjoined golf simulator rooms to create one, nicely furnished venue. Non-stop appetizers will be flowing constantly from the staff (as the main courses) and the cash bar will be open for your drink purchases. You are free to walk around the venue socializing while standard sets of clubs are already there for our use.
This event is open to Audi Club Members only but each member may invite one fellow driving enthusiast friend! NEQ has subsidized the cost of the event so it's only $40 per person. Dinner-only option is also available for both you and your guest.
Note: Drivers are required to be at least 16 years old
3:45PM – 6PM : The race starts at 4:30 but you need to be there for registration, team organization, and briefing by4 PM sharp! Your spot will be forfeit if you show up too late.

The Kart Track
On Track Karting hosts one of the longest and fastest indoor kart tracks on the East Coast. Over 1800 feet long and 20 feet wide, our track has plenty of room for pure wheel-to-wheel racing action. In addition to arrive-and-drive racing, we offer competitive racing leagues, individual and team endurance events, birthday parties, and corporate outings. From our fast straight-a-ways to our tight turns, even the most skilled racers will be challenged. Our large 7,500 square foot build-out features meeting/event rooms, an arcade, a snack bar, and lots of viewing areas to watch the racing action. Television monitors throughout the building display lap times of all the drivers on the track so friends and family can monitor their progress!
Before hitting the track for the first time, all drivers attend a comprehensive safety briefing and orientation session. Our 8-minute briefing video covers basic kart operation, proper use of safety equipment, our driver communication systems (which includes signage, lighting, and flagging), and important rules and regulations. Attending this session will help ensure you get the most out of your experience on the track.
When it is time for your race, you will head to the equipment areas, where On Track Karting supplies you with all the safety gear you need to race (of course, patrons are always welcome to bring their own equipment, provided it complies with all of our safety regulations). Drivers are required to wear a full-face helmet with integrated shield (motorcross-type helmets with goggles are not acceptable) and a neck brace.
