Paul Newman and Don Bleu Race for Charity at the San Jose Grand Prix

On Friday, July 29th, Newman stopped by the GKR track to get a feel for the karts before Saturday's Canary Fund Charity Race at the San Jose Grand Prix.

August 12, 2004 - San Mateo Daily Journal

The San Mateo Daily Journal—news coverage from San Bruno to Redwood City—an article featuring GoKart Racer and Kevin Chambers took over nearly a full page including photos. Kevin is a race car driver in the Speed World GT Challenge and drives a 2002 C-5 Corvette on the circuit's windy, road courses. Kevin practices a couple of hours a week at GoKart Racer and says, "They have this 'SuperTrack' there now and it's really a smaller simulation of a road course.

Karting in the bay here in Northern California

Now when I say Karting, I'm not talking about Malibu Grand Prix.  Granted Malibu provides and \93outdoor racing\94 experience, I'm talking about the racing facilities that are indoors with Karts that absolutely haul butt!  We have a few facilities that have been open for sometime that provide a great racing environment for us speed demons.  Such places like RPM in Sacramento, Lemans in Fremont, and Speed Ring in Santa Clara have paved the way for an exciting way to get together with friends, co-workers, and family.  I have gotten the privilege to race on all these tracks and found that Karting is a great racing experience.
