Last Minute Details To Prepare For Your Arrival At KartWeek

12.18.2008 - As Daytona KartWeek 2008 fast approaches, we felt it important to cover a few last minute details to help make your arrival that much easier.

Competitors will be staged in the West Lot beginning at 7:00am on December 27th. Upon arrival, please advise Daytona personnel if you are a Road Race Sponsor, Road Race competitor with a garage, Road Race competitor without a garage, Sprint Track (Manufacturer's Cup) Sponsor or Sprint Track (Manufacturer's Cup) competitor. The WKA & Daytona staff will direct you to the appropriate staging area of the Lot. For DIS staging map go to www.worldkarting.com/downloads/eb-2009/DISmap.pdf.

Pit Pass Sales will open at 7:30am with separate lines for Road Race and Sprint Track (Manufacturer's Cup) attendees.

In addition to obtaining your Event Pit Passes, the following items will be distributed to you at Pit Pass Sales:

Window Tags: You will receive a window tag denoting Road Race or Sprint. These tags will help identify you to the DIS and WKA staff during load-in. These tags must be displayed in your vehicle throughout the weekend.

Road Race Garage Passes: All Road Race competitors who purchased garage spaces must pick up their garage pass at Pit Pass Sales. The Garage Pass will be issued to the competitor who purchased the garage. Your Name & Garage Number will appear on this pass. This will allow you to participate in the 9am load-in process with WKA sponsors. Garage co-occupants will be moved in with the 11:00am Competitor Load-in.

Welcome Back to Daytona Vouchers: Food vouchers will be distributed for the Welcome Back to Daytona Party in the Sprint FANZONE.

Event Load-In will begin at 9:00am for all WKA Sponsors and Road Race Garage occupants. All other competitors will begin moving in at 11:00am. We will alternate between the Road Race and Sprint Track (Manufacturer's Cup) competitors as we bring you from the West Lot to the infield. We ask that you exercise patience and understanding as the WKA & DIS staff work to get you settled into your assigned areas.

The Road Race and Sprint Track (Manufacturer's Cup) parking areas are full. Our staff will work as quickly and diligently as possible to see that you are in the facility in a timely manner.

Tow Vehicles will not be allowed in the pit areas except to drop your trailer during load-in. Sprint Track (Manufacturer's Cup) vehicle parking will be adjacent to the sprint track per the direction of DIS & WKA staff. Road Race tow vehicle parking will be along the International Horseshoe on the Lake Lloyd side for Road Race.

Overnight Specialty Vehicle Parking (Lake Lloyd Lot): Individuals with pre-paid Lake Lloyd Specialty Vehicle Parking Passes must purchase a pit pass prior to entering the facility. Remember to bring your SV Lot Parking Pass for admission into the lot. SV Lot Load-in will begin at 9:00am for WKA Sponsors on the 27th followed by 11am for competitors. Each lot offers power, water and cable hookups. DIS will provide a pump-out service for $35 per vehicle, cash only. Showers will be available for use from 4pm -- 9am daily.

Pit Pass Sales will close at 5pm on the 27th and operate from 7am -- 5pm daily throughout the weekend.

Lastly, don't forget the "Welcome Back to Daytona Party" in the Sprint FANZONE starting at 5pm on the 27th. Music, food, beverages and fellowship are the theme for the evening.
