Hello, Racers!
Race Calendar is still under discussion, however, nearest race agreement is done.
2016 Stage 2 Östergötland GoKart PRIX will take place in "GokartArenan Norrköping" on Saturday, 16 April, 13.00.

"Why Östergötland?" - You will ask: because this particular track located in Borg, but Norrköping GoKart PRIX is scheduled later in calendar on another track closer to Norrköping.

"GokartArenan Norrköping" is almost the only track in Sweden with bridge and tunnel. It serves their customers with 270 cc 70km/h gokarts.
Race format will be traditional for outdoor tracks with Qualification, Semi-Final and Final... but we've included some extra options to this race:

1. Weight balancers: at all sessions drivers will use extra weights on their gokarts. Minimum weight limited to 93kg - good news for heavy-weighters. If scales say that you are more then 93 kg, you will drive without extra weight.

2. Weather: beside that fact, that it's possible to relocate to indoor track, WE WILL STAY OUTDOORS, even while heavy rain, wind and snow. Please note this fact and take relevant clothes with you.
