2013 Commercial Point Karting Classic Preview

The Commercial Point Karting Classic (website here, Facebook page here) is this coming weekend – August 3 and 4, 2013.  The CPKC (formerly the Commercial Point Grand Prix) has been the highlight of the season for Bruce Brothers Racing for the past few years.  Peter and Conor will both defend the clean sweeps they had in 2012.  The schedule for this weekend is posted here.  Peter's class is Spec 100 Pipe and Conor's is 80cc Shifter.  Practice starts at 10:00 am on Saturday with the second practice acting as a timed qualifying session for the heat races. The heat races on Saturday are scheduled to start at 2:00 pm.  The schedule can vary quite a bit, but if I had to guess, I'd say that Spec 100 Pipe will start no earlier than 3:30-3:45 pm on Saturday and 80cc Shifter will start no earlier than 4:30-5:00 pm.  It takes some time to park and get settled, so keep that in mind if you plan on coming down.  Admission is free, but if you choose to buy a pit pass, we have canopies for shade and plenty of folding chairs in our pit area.  We have a reserved spot which should be reasonably close to the grid area (where karts enter and exit the track near Turn 1). Feature races on Sunday are scheduled to start at 1:00 pm.  I'd guess that Spec 100 Pipe will start no earlier than 2:15-2:30 pm on Sunday and 80cc Shifter will start no earlier than 3:15-3:30 pm.  Both boys are entered in the pro races after that – I’d guess 4:00-4:15 pm and 5:00-5:15 pm for Spec 100 Pipe and 80cc Shifter, respectfully.  Come on down and enjoy the racing action.
p.s., Our pits look like this, except it's all grass at the CPKC .
