Grand Prix - $1,000.00
Paid at the conclusion of the race day following
Team Continental’s Event at O.R.P.
October 1-2-3, 2010
Cuz what’s a Grand Prix without a Grand for a Prize?
STAR Projects division of Master Mechanics is posting a $1,000.00 prize
fund and you (and that dubious ride of yours) have just as much chance of
winning it as the big spenders (maybe better).
• Here are the rules:
• There must be an Official existing lap record in your class previously
established at either of this year’s two T.C. Races.
• Your car must be legal for the class entered. Conference legality
rules apply.
• You must finish the race.
• The Driver to lower the official race lap record the most wins.
• The prize fund will be distributed as follows: $500.00 for most
improved, $300.00 for second most improved and $200.00 for third
most improved.
• The lap record you beat may be your own record from a previous
race. (Aren’t you glad you sandbagged).
• Sponsor reserves the right to increase or extend the prize fund as
additional funds are available.
• In the event of an exact tie, both competitors will be awarded the full
amount of their winning position. (at a thousandth of a second I am
feeling safe).
• Sponsors (or maybe someone else’s) decision will be final.
• Female winners also get a kiss from a handsome mechanic! (sorry to

Hope to see you at the Grand Prix.

See you there


Just out of curiousity how are you measuring the decrease in lap time? By seconds or by a percentage decrease from the existing lap record? Two seconds quicker in a GT-1 car is a much more 1.9% decrease in lap record, in RS a 2 second decrease in the lap record is a only a 1.6% decrease in the lap record.

by time, not precentage. Thats how we are doing this. Bring out the good tires, and get it done.

We are trying to get more prize money in the pot. I talk to some of the guys, but i think if you can break the official ORP lap record, I might be able to talk someone into it.


Well-known member
dont know for sure what holds the record, but i know it is fast. Randy would have his work cut out for him and it would be fun to watch, especially if he beat it.

Official Lap Record Time At ORP

Time: 1:42.095
250cc anderson shifter kart
80hp and under 500lbs with driver.

Also the Prize Fund has been changed. An additional $500 has been added. That makes it $1500. Still trying to work out if we will pay deeper or just more for the top three. Stayed tuned for more details.

Just this guy, ya know?
For some reason, I keep seeing the title of this thread as "Special Prize Monkey," which I think would be a cool idea. Just a suggestion, if anyone from TC is listening...
Adam may take exception to that.

Your times are just about there Randy... How's your rear-end.

I know I shouldn't ask that.

It's fine, thanks for asking Ken.

Just picked up 104 hp at the dyno today as a matter of fact, wonder if that will translate to a half second.

If you are interested in being a sponser and adding more prize money please contact me at jhbowler299@gmail.com. And remember this is a race to lower the RACE LAP RECORD in your class, so anyone has a great chance.

Epic Win, I push limit
We need Tom Carnegie to do his famous line "race fans, you are not going to believe this....iiiit's a nnnnnnewwwwww traaaaack record!" for Randy.

Just sayin :)
