Competitors may reserve pit spots anywhere within our four rows of parking. The price is per spot (12'x45') and guarantees your pit spot for Thursday, Friday and Saturday of each Karting Challenge event weekend.  

The most notable change comes in the idea that you are reserving a 'Pit spot' rather than a 'Parking spot'. Please understand GPMX requires the function of the main lot on race day to be a 'pit area' and are working towards the best solution we can. GPMX further requests that you do not purchase a spot to 'park' personal vehicles in that are not towing or hauling a kart; you will be asked to move if the space is needed (again, you have reserved a 'Pit spot', see agreement).

Reserved Kart Numbers:
Competitors may reserve a kart number for the year at $50 per class.
