|Pit Spots and Tents – Planning and Reservations for this year’s SKUSA SpringNationals at PKRA|
Reserving Your Pit SpotAs always, the toughest part for the SKUSA staff in organizing large events each year is laying out and fitting everyone into the pits!
This year is no different, as our 3-day SpringNationals event at Phoenix Kart Racing Association circuit in Glendale, AZ will likely see the largest participation yet for a Pro Tour weekend! ALL RACERS or TEAM OWNERS can do their part now by reserving the space they will need (as well as encouraging all drivers to get pre-registered for the event – before their classes cap out at 40)!
The price of all pit spots will be $.30/SF for the first 3 rows, and $.20/SF for the 4th row. The paddock area will be rows of pit spots 12’W x 40’D, so your drawing should reflect multiples of these areas. Please also specify your top 3 choices for the pit spots you prefer (i.e., 23-27, 133-136, etc), based on the pit map posted HERE.
Here are the items to include on your pit request drawing:
TentsThe EXCLUSIVE rental tent vendor for this event will be ARIZONA RENTALS. You can reach them at 602-944-5561 to get tent options, pricing and to make arrangements. Their estimated tent price is approx. $.85/SF for tent canopies, and approx. $1/LF for walls. They also offer other rental items such as tables, chairs, food service items, and heating/cooling equipment. An add’l fee for set-up and/or permits may be required by the tent company, so talk directly to them about your tent needs. NOTE: You will want to confirm your pit space with the SKUSA office prior to finalizing your tent rental, although it’s a good idea to check tent availability and pricing right away in order to submit the most accurate pit layout.
Additional PKRA Pit Rules
There is no staking of tents into asphalt allowed, and no draining of kart fluids, including fuel, onto the asphalt.
No On-Site CampingUnfortunately, due to flood zone restrictions in the area, there will be no RVs in the pits and NO overnight camping allowed for this event. Contact the SKUSA office at 951-491-0808 if you want information about parking an RV inside the gates during the day, and then camping off-site at night. Otherwise, SKUSA has arranged a great price at the nearby Courtyard by Marriott Phoenix/Happy Valley as the event’s HOST HOTEL. Click HERE for pricing and room reservation information. Toy Haulers will be allowed in the pits, but only for working out of during daytime hours. NO OVERNIGHT CAMPING IN THE PITS.
Strict Fire CodesSKUSA has strict rules regarding fire extinguishers and fuel for this event. See SKUSA Rulebook section 10.4.1.3.1 regarding fire extinguishers, and note that NO fuel is allowed to be brought into this event (except by SKUSA, and no more than 5 gallons of generator fuel per trailer). All fuel will need to be pre-ordered or pre-purchased from SKUSA by Sunday, April 26th to guarantee sufficient supplies on site. All trailers will be inspected prior to pit placement to assure compliance.
SchedulePit move-in will begin on Thursday, 4/30 at 7:00am and must be completed by the end of the day, as practice starts Friday morning 5/1 at approx. 8:30am. Some teams may arrange to park earlier, if in town for testing or racing the weekend prior. Please add a note to your pit request if you would like more information and/or to make arrangements to pit prior to 4/30.
Move out will begin Sunday night 5/3, after the final podium presentation (approx. 6pm). All trailers will need to be out of the pits by end of day Monday, 5/4. Tent install begins Wed, 4/29 (except for tents set-up earlier for the previous weekend’s event). Tent tear-down: Monday, 5/4.
Trailer StorageIf you have a trailer that will be used for transporting karts and equipment only, and does not need to be parked inside of the pit area, there will be a $25 fee to store it in a secured outer lot of this facility. Please add that note to your pit spot request to give SKUSA advanced notice.
See you in Phoenix!
