Catalina Go-Kart Fundraiser

Cameron King is organising the Catalina Ski Race Go Kart Tournament – Region 2 Fundraiser.

Wednesday, 14 July 2010 at 18:00
K1 – 17221 Von Karman Ave, Irvine, CA

Before the big race on Saturday come down to Irvine to find out who is King of the track. Everyone is invited and all profits will go towards local ski racing and getting new skiers into the sport.

You can sign up as a single driver, $50, or as a team of 4, for $175.

Teams will be awarded points for each finish a driver makes, like the 800 point system (1st-800, 2nd-600, 3rd-450, etc…).  The further a driver moves on in the tournament, the more points a team can receive. Only 60 drivers can enter so hurry before all the spots are taken!

Even if you dont want to race, come out and support friends that are racing. Hope to see you all there!
