June 29th: Professional Sprint Kart Racing at Infineon

Our next drive day has been scheduled for June 29th at Infineon Raceway’s kart circuit. We’ll be driving their 28 HP SRW professional racing karts, which when geared for top end speed are capable of over 100 miles per hour (these are not anything like the run of the mill indoor karts most people have tried). We have confirmed attendees from a range of backgrounds including VC partners, startup founders and CEOs, and representatives from larger technology and automotive companies.

Since we’ll have half a day of training to get us off to a good start, we’ll be able to drive on the track without a pacecar, and all laps will be timed (and possibly shared with the whole group, so bring your A game).   We’ll culminate the day with some challenges to see who can take the crown as the fastest driver.

The event will cost $700 per attendee.  We also have a limited number of free and discounted seats for members of the press and earlier stage startups. If you think you can keep up with the pack, apply here.

Rough tentative schedule is as follows:

Late Morning: Classroom training and lapping sessions
Midday: Catered lunch
Afternoon: Race sessions
Wrapup: Networking and drinks
