Rock Island Grand Prix Website Updated
 


The Rock Island Grand Prix, the world's largest karting street race, has updated and reorganized its website (www.rockislandgrandprix.com). This race, which is on the FIA/CIK International Calendar for September 3-4, was one of the first in the world to handle registrations online through its web site and now receives more than half in that manner. The site has also become even more valuable as foreign teams seek information about this international event.

The site was designed and is maintained by Quad-Cities Online. It also includes the complete printable entry packet including supplemental rules, as well as a graphic track map, photo gallery and sponsor information. Another feature is a complete list of previous competitors over its 10 year history and a complete collection of stories about the races and organizational newsletters. Entries are currently being accepted.

"The Rock Island Grand Prix has been a trendsetter in the use of the internet in kart racing. Over time, our web site had become a bit difficult to maneuver. By reorganizing and refreshing its design, it is now more user friendly for racers and spectators alike," said Roger Ruthhart, president of the Rock Island Grand Prix.

This year's race will once again feature Superkarts! USA's King of the Streets. New to the lineup will be the Stars U.S. Street Grand Prix for Intercontinental C and Intercontinental A classes. Also returning in 2005 are the Briggs & Stratton Rumble at The Rock and Tom Argy Jr. Animal Roundup. Two TaG International-sanctioned races are direct qualifiers for the TaG World Finals. The Rock Island Grand Prix features 15 races for 2-cycle, 4-cycle and gearbox racing karts.

SBC Communications and CJC Investments, a HomeVestors franchisee, are Presenting Sponsors of the Rock Island Grand Prix. Jumer's Casino Rock Island and Kart Expo International are also major sponsors.
