KRP's Inaugural Weekend = Success!
Written by Administrator Monday, 27 September 2010 10:12
Kalaeloa Raceway Park's inaugural weekend of events is now officially a success! Even with severe competition from several other events, we had a huge turnout...in just two days we have cemented KRP as the official home of motorsports! What a validation...over 4,000 spectators attended the Sand Drags. KRP was simply packed with people and most importantly, racers! In addition, SCCA RallyCross was held on Saturday, and in the process opened up a new form of motorsports on Oahu for the first time ever! It was truly an epic weekend! And historically, this is the return of a dedicated motorsports facility since Hawaii Raceway Park's closure in April 2006!
We would like to thank everyone that has volunteered, supported, and attended our first ever events at KRP. A huge "Mahalo!" to George & Jeanette Grace III as well as the rest of the Grace Ohana for making this happen. You did it! Thanks to Avery Tsui and Bobby Enos as well as their dedicated crew for putting on such spectacular events. Thank you to my partners, Tom Bryant & Chris Messer for helping KRP come to fruition through the past few years of hard work and dedication. We did it! In addition, thank you to our concessionares and volunteers, including those from the 735th Air Mobility Squadron, USAF!
There was a deluge of coverage...KHON2 was all over the park this weekend, KITV came out and did a great story, Island Driver TV was on-hand, as well as Hawaii Motorsports News. In addition, over 900 photos and hours of video were taken. Within the coming week, this official website will be updated with results, photos, and video. In addition, we'll be working on getting a DVD out for distribution! Please keep checking back this week! We're all still recovering from the amazing experience this weekend brought forth!
