Fast-Paced Summer Fun at GPNY Mt.Kisco, NY Junior Racing Camps
Facility NewsKids, start your engines! Grand Prix New York (GPNY), the area’s leading indoor entertainment and team-building venue, will once again be offering junior racing camps this summer. Aspiring racecar drivers ages 7-16 can choose from a novice or advanced 5-day camp.

The 5-day Novice Racing Summer Camp features a structured curriculum for participants with little or no experience in karting/driving and teaches junior drivers the basics of driving and racing. During the week long racing program, campers work their way through a course curriculum which includes learning how to identify and follow racing lines, kart control and the basics of passing and defending. Campers enjoy five days of high speed wheel-to-wheel instruction and racing, along with other recreational activities including the iRacing Sim Room, bowling and the arcade.

The 5-day Advanced Camp is for drivers with a competitive edge who are ready to take their skills to the next level. Participants will learn about racing lines, passing exercises, defending position on the track and cutting lap time down. The last two days of camp, instructors wet the track to teach drivers to deal with different road conditions.

“Whether it’s a first time driver who wants to learn the basics, or a child who already has some racing experience, these camps are sure to thrill,” said GPNY Vice President Nat Mundy. “Most of the novice participants can’t wait to come back and take the next course and many of the advanced graduates head into a junior racing league. It’s a safe way for kids with an adventurous side to have a lot of fun and get a little competitive.”

Each 5-day session is $800 per applicant. Sessions are from 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M., and lunch is served. Both Novice and Advanced courses consist of approximately 70% driving and 30% classroom work.

Novice camp dates are July 8-12, July 22-26 and August 12-16. Advanced camp dates are July 15-19 and August 5-9. For more information, contact Chris Pricola at (914) 358-3613 or chris@gpny.com.

OCTANE’S ‘FAMILY FUN’ KART RACING GEARS UP TO CELEBRATE SCOTTSDALE MOVE
Facility NewsOctane Raceway is putting the final touches on the new racetrack that is set to open at the Pavilions at Talking Stick next month. After ten years, Octane is raising the bar by moving their business from the current Phoenix location to a modern facility in Scottsdale that will house the only permanent indoor and outdoor racetrack in the United States. A final celebration is planned at the Phoenix location throughout the upcoming 4th of July holiday weekend. When the party is over, the Phoenix location will close for a fluid transition into the Scottsdale venue.

“For many months, the excitement has been building about our move to the Pavilions at Talking Stick,” states Scott Sanders, president of Octane Raceway. “From the moment we started thinking about a new location, our sole focus has been to deliver the best racing experience imaginable. Because of the dedicated Octane staff, our valued partners and loyal racing fans, we know that this new facility will offer the best of the best. One of our regular racers, who previewed the Scottsdale venue, put it very succinctly saying it is the ‘Holy Grail of Kart Racing’.”

Their current Phoenix facility, located at 48th and Washington Streets, is going out in style with a final celebration from July 4 – 7. Octane will be open on July 4 from 11:00am – 8:00pm and as a way of thanking customers for their continued patronage since 2003, they are offering a free race at their new Scottsdale facility to anyone who purchases 2 races during the final weekend in Phoenix. To share the memories and excitement of the Phoenix facility, Octane encourages customers to post photos and videos to Instagram tagging #OctaneMemories & @OctaneRaceway.

The last day of business for the Phoenix location is Sunday, July 7, with the doors permanently closing at 8:00pm.

The Grand Opening of the new facility at the Pavilions at Talking Stick takes place July 19 – 21 with special activities all weekend long. The public is welcome to join in the celebration, tour the new facility, and then experience the thrill of the new racetrack. The Trackside Bar & Grill will have food and drink specials all weekend. On Saturday, July 20, beginning at 7:00pm, meet and mingle with the Hooters Girls and don’t miss their featured race as they fly through the one-third mile track.

Specifically designed for the venue, the track layout is unique in that each lap begins indoors then winds through an outdoor section of the course before returning inside. Air walls separate the indoor and outdoor track sections, which drivers are able to navigate seamlessly. For temperature and element control, the outdoor portion is covered with a permanent steel canopy and has a misting system throughout the track.

The new venue is 65,000 square feet of entertainment options and meeting spaces with an on-property restaurant and bar. The meeting spaces have full conference amenities with state-of-the-art audiovisual capabilities and can be set up in many styles according to group needs like boardroom, theater, conference or dining room formats. The facility can easily accommodate groups of up to 500 and boasts a 5,000 square foot outdoor patio giving a relaxed environment for happy hours, post-racing analysis and family time.

The event planning staff manages all details for corporate meetings, team building events, and social gatherings like birthday celebrations, graduation parties and any type of group get together.

“The new location is highly visible providing easy access to our existing customer base in Tempe, Mesa, Chandler and Phoenix,” says Sanders on their new geography. “We are now in the center of Scottsdale just minutes from the
Scottsdale Airpark and North Phoenix business districts. I am very proud of the first class operation we are building, bringing both indoor kart racing and corporate event planning to the next level. We’re looking forward to the next chapter of Octane Raceway in the Pavilions at Talking Stick.”
