Spring is a time for New Beginnings and that is what we are celebrating on March 18th.
After the devasting floods last November, president Claudio Valiante seriously contemplated packing it in. It had been an amazing 40 years of business, and he had never backed down from a challenge yet. However, with no flood insurance and over $1.000.000 in loss and damage, at 77 years old he questioned whether he had any fight left in him.
As the weeks went by, he started thinking about the racers, the friends and the karting family that SIMA had cultivated over the years and how it enriched both his and so many others lives. The flood (pardon the pun) of support from so many of you, re-ignited his spark and here we are 16 months later ready for our new beginning!
We invite both current SIMA members and racers who have never visited our facility before! Drop in practice is FREE (except for $11 insurance bands) and will run from 10am – 5pm. Although our reno’s are still in progress, we are excited to show you around with a facility tour starting at 9:30am. Our newly reno’d café will be serving lunch at 12:30 while hosting a Q & A with the IM team. If you have any friends or family interested in trying your kart, Try-a-Kart will run from 1-2pm and only with a dry track. Try-a-kart is free drivers except for $11 insurance bands.
It's going to be an amazing day! Please register here!
