This event has been canceled.  Super bummer since it was nearly sold out and we were shaping up to have a great time.  We'll try to reschedule it later in the season.  Sorry all for the inconvenience.  Stay healthy!!

Back by popular demand - The NEQ Endurance Karting Invitational is upon us!  15 teams of 3 drivers each will compete in a 90-minute winner take all endurance karting event hosted at On Track Karting in Wallingford, Connecticut.  The winner brings home the greatest, most important trophy in all of motorsport: bragging rights.  Following the race we'll head to Two Roads Brewing Company in Stratford, CT to enjoy craft brews and assorted hors d'oeuvres.

 

The event starts at On Track Karting in Wallingford, CT. There will be 15 assembled teams of 3 people each competing for gold, and each person will get up to 30 minutes of seat time (if desired).  If you wish to register and assemble as a team please let us know at registration, otherwise the team formation will be at random. The race will start with an 8-minute qualifying round for grid position and teams will pit in to change drivers throughout the race.  How you communicate throughout the race is up to your team and is part of the fun of and camaraderie of an endurance event! No karting experience is required but be advised these are not "amusement park" go karts.  They will corner over 1.5Gs and reach 45 mph on this indoor track, so the racing is fast and physical.  This a friendly competition, and no trophies will be awarded. 

 

Following the event, we will make a 30-minute drive to Two Roads Brewing Company in Stratford, CT.  This brewery was named one of America's Ten Best Breweries and has won many awards for their craft beers. Our group will enjoy our own private room and catered finger foods will be provided for 2 hours. The cash bar will be open for your drink purchases with over 2 dozen beers on tap.

 

Pricing for the entire event to include an 8-minute qualifier, 90-minute endurance karting race, and 2 hours of food, fun, and drinks at a private room in one of America's best breweries is just $56 for NEQ Member in good standing. NEQ members can invite a guest to join the fray and your guest can register for the event through MSR.  E-mail the registrar with questions or clarification.

Please Note: The brewery has limited capacity so we cannot allow the option of brewery-only registrations.  Please email the event master concerning bringing other people (significant others, etc.) to the brewery.
