About this event

Event requirements

We look forward to seeing you at Ocala Gran Prix March 11-14 in Ocala, FL for the opening round of the 2021 USPKS championship.

Registration will open at the track at 11AM on Thursday, March 11th for entry check-in and packet pickup.  

For 2021, all drivers must be members and have a valid USPKS Membership.  Please visit for full age requirements for each class, as well as the Competition Rules.  Memberships are required to complete this online entry.

Driver and Kart Profiles and Transponders

Your vehicle profile(s) in your MSR "garage" are where the kart brand/type and transponder comes from.  If you register the same "vehicle" in 2 different classes, you will be using the same transponder in both classes, as they are tied to the vehicle.  To use 2 different transponders, you need to create 2 different "vehicles" in your garage.  For example, create a X30 kart and a KA Kart to use to separate transponders.  Using the correct vehicle information will help make sure that your stats online are correct.  You may use the same transponder in 2 classes, but you are responsible for moving them back and forth.  If you want your driver's name and hometown information to show up correctly, put them in your profile correctly.

Ocala Event Timeline


Once you complete your registration here, it will show as being "New' until it is confirmed by USPKS staff (usually within a day or two).  If you start a registration, but don't complete it, MSR will send you a reminder email, just to make sure you're aware that you didn't complete the process.  Anytime you want to check your registration status, or make an update to your information, you can just log into your account and do so.

If you hare having an issue registering, where the system tries to get you to select a number for a second class, but you didn't check the box for a second class, please try to register using Google Chrome, or a different browser.  Motorsportreg is aware of this problem and are working on the solution, but it looks to be dependent on which browser you are using.  Feel free to contact us if you can't get registered.  Sorry for the inconvenience.
