SIMA announces 2014 Winter Series Schedule
October 17, 2013. SIMA opened its doors this year in 2013 for its most successful winter season to date, and the racing was incredible. The 2013 season saw SIMA draw over 130 championship contending racers. So now that they have another year under their belt and already looking to turn to the 2014 season, why would they do it any differently? SIMA Raceway is beginning their Winter season on February 1st 2014 to start the new year. The series will consist of three races, with the following two dates falling on March 1st and March 29th, and blend right into the start of their summer season as it did this year. Class structure will stay much the same as it did this year, with three TaG Junior divisions for ages 7-16, the ever popular TaG Senior and TaG Masters divisions, 4 stroke light/heavy, IAME Senior, and finally Novice/Expert Shifter. Just like in any other form of professional racing, SIMA started preparing for the following season as soon as 2013 was finished, and look to make their already popular local race series grow exponentially. SIMA accomplished that this year with a competitive and fun atmosphere for drivers and spectators alike, as well as giving away almost $30,000 in prizes and year end rewards. Prizes ranged from a small karting chain given away at days end, to one of four trips to the IAME International Finals Race in Lyon, France. There are very few series where you can travel so little and race for such substantial prizes. SIMA has done an incredible job with their new facility here and given so much back to the karting community. It gives the karting community something to be proud of, and hopefully entrants and attendance will continue to grow at this amazing facility and local club series come February 2014.
SIMA Raceway would also like to thank the amazing support from their 2013 sponsors; without them the season would not have been possible. Italian Motors USA, Italkart, IAME, Michael Valiante Racing, VP Racing Fuels, AIMsports, GMZ Race products, MG Tires, Courtney Concepts, Designs of All kinds, Le Crocodile, The Seattle Mariners, RLV, and Arroxx race suits.
