This is a karting experience event driving wheel to wheel with other competitors as a means to continue learning and developing our driving skills. Learn from the driver in front of you and let the driver behind you keep you motivated. All drivers are your teammate and friends offering opportunities for you to improve and learn.

We ask this to ensure that everyone gets their fair time at the wheel. There will be plenty of time to share stories and between your heats and over the break.
4. Care the Kart and Track (Speeders)
This event allows us to practice honing our skills and to push to the limit, and while the occasional touch will always be part of Motorsport, we request no bumping at all, please leave 1mm distance. Care for the kart and track like your own car or home. If you are unable to do so, please stick with Mario Kart on Nintendo.
5. Weight and Kart
Even with all the rules in F1, every car won’t be even, but the engineers have different interpretations of the rules, and drivers utilize different lines to take advantage of their cars’ specific handling. Drivers, please adapt to your kart, with your driving style and line. You are welcome to bring donuts, triple cheeseburgers, and cookies to help the lightweight drivers reach imaginary, non mandatory minimum weight limits.
6. What happens at Speeders stays at Speeders
Same as when you leave for a Vegas trip sometimes we make a mistake we may want to take back. There may be an occasion where one driver or another may drive past their limit. Most of these can be settled with a high five or a handshake. It is all about fun with your driver buddy.
7. The CSA event will continue to focus on safety, learning and fun experience with you, and if you have some suggestions please let us know feedback after the event. Our commitment to delivering a premier event to you will likely mean that we can’t make changes at the moment (unless it’s safety related). Our team plans to bring a full season in 2020 to you. We keep learning from Kimi too. Watch this videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sj5T6XZk-rw

The helmet visors also do a great job of hiding your identity.
