  • No team member can run more than 150 laps..
  • Each team must make at least 3 pit stops, and can take as many as necessary to complete the race.
  • Qualifying will be 5 laps in random karts, Fastest times will determine the starting order for the race.

  • Trophies will be awarded to first, second and third place.
  • To be eligible to race. Each team must pay the entry fee at the time of registration! Paperwork is considered void without payment.  Entry fee is non-refundable in the event that you do not show for the event.
  • The karts will not require refueling or tire changes.
  • The kart with the most laps after 2 hours or the first team to complete 300 laps will be declared the winner!

All G-Force Karts Rules Apply

  • The first penalty for violation of the rules will be a 10 second pit stop for that driver’s kart and driver in the pit. Penalties start upon all other karts exiting the pits. *Example. Driver 5 gets a penalty. Driver 4 is in the pit changing drivers. Driver 5 must wait to receive their penalty time until Driver 4 has exited the pit after changing drivers. The second penalty for a violation of the rules will be a 30 second pit stop for the driver. The third penalty for any particular kart regardless of driver will result in removal of the kart from the race.
  • Most racers are accustomed to a 20-lap race. This is a 300 laps or a 2 hour endurance race, not a sprint. Remember that there will be hundreds of turns to get past your opponents, not just the next one in front of you.
  • This event is non-refundable. No refund will be given for any reason, kart malfunction, and violation of rules, improper conduct or basically losing the race for any possible reason on the planet that could occur. No Whining, Complaining, or Running with Sharp objects.
  • Please remember that this is supposed to be fun. We award prizes, trophies and other items for endurance races, but the goal is to enjoy 2 hours of spirited racing in a competitive environment without someone getting hurt. Remember your manners and act appropriately as a winner or loser. Take into consideration that there are a number of other people trying to enjoy the same experience that you are. Don’t be a poor sport and ruin the experience for someone else. Inappropriate actions will result in the participating member being barred from racing at G-Force Portsmouth again.
  • Prizes will be determined by sponsorship participation. Prizes in the past have included but are not limited to, Race credits at G-Force Portsmouth and gift certificates to restaurants and other venues.
  • G-Force Karts has the right to change rules, add rules and delete rules at any time without notice to drivers or parents. By registering and paying your entry fee you agree to all rules and regulations.
