2016 DINNER CRUISE ROUTE:
Sunday, May 22nd, 2016DGM Domo Cup (Go-Karting)
Xtreme Racing Center - Pigeon Forge, TN - 10:00am
The third annual go-kart championship series for those wishing to participate. The winner will get their name on the Domo Cup trophy. Racing will start at 10:30am sharp, competitors will pay their entry fees on site. Entry at this time of day is $19.99
The racing will be done in a Time Attack
format, so racers don't need to be the overall race winner since the fastest combined lap times will determine the Cup winner.
The facilities at Xtreme Racing Center has electronic lap timing capabilities. This electronic timing system will be used to establish each racer's top lap times in two separate races. The top combined time of the two races will determine the overall winner, not their finishing position on-track.
The two races will use different karts on the same track, but the course direction is reversed for the second race. This setup keeps the odds more even, and should somebody excel in one direction versus another they may not score the fastest combined time should somebody set a better pace in one or more races.
Last year the margin of victory was 0.009 seconds.
In the event of a tie the driver's second fastest lap times will be used to calculate their combined time.
Currently the karting is planned to take place at Xtreme Racing Center of Pigeon Forge
which requires helmet usage during "Xtreme Track" races. If you wish to use your own DOT approved helmet then it is recommended that you bring it with you. Also, open toed shoes are NOT permitted on track. Please wear appropriate clothing.
