COMPETITIVE RACING

Bluegrass Karting endurance races and leagues are the cheapest form of competitive racing in Louisville. Simply show up, compete, have a great time, and leave the hard part to us. It’s that simple. While our Arrive & Drive karting format is competitive based on fast lap times, some crave more. The primary difference between general Arrive & Drive karting and our competitive formats is drivers are competing for position. This type of racing is intended for both recreational drivers looking to begin a racing hobby as well as seasoned racers with prior experience.


LEAGUE RACING

League Racing takes place on Monday evenings and runs seasonally with 8-week sessions. Typical sessions run Mid-September to Mid-November, and Mid-January to Mid-March. Multiple divisions based on lap times are available. We welcome inexperienced drivers but do require at least 3-races at Bluegrass Karting prior to Week 1.

HOW IT WORKS:

1. Pre-Registration REQUIRED.

2. Endurance Races are open to experienced drivers ONLY. No first-timers please.

3. Endurance races typically include a 5-lap Qualifier, 100-lap Main with 4 pit stops. Each person will be placed in a division based on weight and/or experience/lap times. Winners based on position, not lap time. 3 separate divisions (lap time criteria subject to change based on sign-ups): Pro (<21.5 lap times), Middle (21.501-22.000 lap times), Heavy/Amateur (22.001+ lap times)

4. Leagues typically occur two times a year - Fall (September - November) and Winter (January - March). While we do break league participants into skill-levels, prior karting experience is requested.

5. Payments are non-refundable.
