"6th year for the traditional indoor event during the famed trade show!"

Chicago Indoor Racing will be hosting the 6th Annual Team Endurance Race on Friday, February 26, 2010 at Chicago Indoor Racing located in Addison, IL. With many from the Karting community in town for the Franklin Kart Expo presented by NKN in St. Charles, IL, this is the perfect opportunity to catch up with friends, kick back, relax and either take part in or watch a great event, all in the comfort of Chicago Indoor Racing's new Addison (Illinois) facility.

The event is setup to be competitive, but friendly, with Team members ranging from racers to retailers, tuners to distributors. In fact, anyone involved in the business that enjoys competition, hanging out with friends and having a good time is more than welcome to attend the event, whether as part of a team or as a spectator - the adjoining restaurant and lounges provide excellent opportunity to socialize while watching, or taking a break from, the race.

The event will be held on Chicago Indoor Racing's Track 8, which at just under a 1/4 mile in length, produces lap times of just over 30 seconds for experienced drivers. As in the past, we will NOT be permitting regular CIR Endurance Teams to take part, although other teams are free to recruit regulars to join their team. The organizers reserve the right to refuse entry to teams stacked with CIR regulars.

All teams must provide at least 3, but no more than 6 drivers. All drivers must be at least eighteen (18) years of age (drivers with prior experience at CIR in adult karts will be permitted to join teams and younger drivers may be permitted to take part, subject to CIR being able to assess their racing experience and the driver being able to safely race an adult kart). Teams will "pick a number from the hat" to select their kart from a closely matched grid and then take part in a 20-minute qualifying/timed practice session.

The fastest individual lap time for each team will determine the starting position for the main event. The driver finishing practice will start the 200 lap race, once the karts have been assembled into qualifying order. All teams will be required to make a minimum of five driver changes and a refueling stop. Driver changes and refueling strategies are determined by each team.
