Starting March 24 from 5pm to 10 pm my shop has rented the 3/4 mile 14 turn paved circuit in Riverside known as Adam's motorsport park for a time attack/ tuner meet. To drive will only cost 20 bucks an hour. This is gonna be the cheapest you will ever get to run on a track. Come out and support and we can make this event every week. There will be DJ's playin music and you dont have to worry about any cops harassing you and no raids. To spectate is only 5 bucks and there will be food vendors there. I need all you evos out there to represent. I will post a link to our flyer that has all the rules for tech inspection. You can check out some videos on youtube keywords "proto grip". This is not your average meet, so come out bring your helmet and battle it out for the fastest lap time. Its a great place to learn the basics of circuit racing, on the back stretch Ive seen up to 80mph. If you have any questions call my shop at 951-276-3395. Thanks

Video of some random MR2 Turbo driving around the kart track tonight at Time Attack Tuesday. Not the greatest track, but i guess something to do if you're bored on a Tuesday night

Wow. Count me as VERY surprised that Adams is allowing this. They have had a hard enough time keeping that track in good condition. Karters hate that track because it's so rough. They finally repaved it a few years back, and now they are allowing cars on it?! Unbelievable.

I can't imagine Kart drivers are very pleased about this.

I am very familiar with Adam's Kart Track. There is one good straight, but the rest of the track is pretty tight. I wouldn't think it would be much fun driving a regular car on it, and I am positive that driving a Shifter Kart at Adams would be much more fun that putting a car on it.....even a Lotus!

I agree, and it makes me wonder, seems like kind of a desperate move because I really doubt that track was designed to take the much heavier loads of street cars.

So, that means the track's going to break down quicker, which will only end up costing them more down the line....

I have raced my kart at Adams and it really is not a big track. Surprised they would do this.

You think Time Attack Tuesday is bad? Well, Thursday is Drift Night! LOL I think they've been doing drift nights for the past few months, but the time attack thing is brand new...

I have driven Adams many times and this is a very bad idea.

If something goes wrong bad things are going to happen.

Too many light standards right off the track for me! A trivial spin off the paved surface could end up well into a 5 figure repair...
