Back by popular demand is the annual Trillium Winter Go-Kart Series!

We are (once again) holding the event at Downsview Park’s electric K1-Speed Canada (formerly GP Kartways).
Dates and Times: Each of the 3 events take place at 6:30pm Sunday evenings (arrive by 6.00pm), bi-weekly starting on Sunday February 23rd. There's a possibility of a 4th event on Sunday April 5th, depending on interest levels.
- Sunday February 23rd
- Sunday March 8h
- Sunday March 22nd
- Sunday April 5th (optional)
Cost and Registration:
Cost is $70.00+hst per event and you DON’T need to be a Trillium member to race. Please feel free to invite friends & family to make this event more competitive. K1-Speed has implemented some changes over last year and in order for us to secure the venue for each race, we require full deposit payment from a minimum of 10 racers prior to the first event.
We require a minimum of 10 racers per event to make this series work. Registering for the series through MSR allows us to secure the venue and saves you a $3.00 payment processing fee for each event!
Race Format and Point Structure:
The format of each event includes a 14-lap qualifying session followed by two 16 lap races (total of 46 laps). The 2nd race will have the racers start in reverse-grid order from the 1st race & qualifying results (to make things interesting). The following point structure will be awarded as such:
2020 POINT STRUCTURE
1st place – 10 points
2nd place – 8 points
3rd place – 6 points
4th place – 5 points
5th place – 4 points
6th place – 3 points
7th place – 2 points
8th place – 1 point
9th place – 0 points
10th place – 0 points
Minimum age for this series is 14yrs and height requirement is 58″ (147.3 cm). Maximum weight restriction is 300lbs and height is 6’7”.
Track rules will be explained on the day of the race, during the qualifying briefing. Helmets are required and loaners are available at K1 Speed for free.
K1 Speed has the ability to run 10 karts on the track at once/per session. If our group is larger than 10 competitors, we will run multiple heats. Each racer that qualifies to race in the ‘fastest’ heat is awarded a 5 point bonus.
The overall results of this series will count towards points for the 2020 Competition Trophy presented at the AGM meeting held annually preceding the Christmas Dinner.
