RESERVED TRAILER PARKING: RESERVE YOUR SPOT NOW 

Competitors may reserve pit spots anywhere within our four rows of parking. The price is per spot (12'x45') and guarantees your pit spot for Thursday, Friday and Saturday of each Karting Challenge event weekend.  

The most notable change comes in the idea that you are reserving a 'Pit spot' rather than a 'Parking spot'. Please understand GPMX requires the function of the main lot on race day to be a 'pit area' and are working towards the best solution we can. GPMX further requests that you do not purchase a spot to 'park' personal vehicles in that are not towing or hauling a kart; you will be asked to move if the space is needed (again, you have reserved a 'Pit spot', see agreement).
 
There will be no change in pricing for those renewing from 2019, however there will be a slight increase for new Pit spot customers in the 2020 season and all moving forward.
 
Those wishing to renew for the 2020 season (and keep the 2019 pricing) must do so by January 14th, 2020. Failure to do so will result in the loss of your current Pit spot as well as pricing increases will be in effect.
