  7. What a GREAT event! I hope the drivers liked it because as a spectator it was a lot of fun! My brother raced this year and I really enjoyed watching. Good job Lockhart!

  8. Incredible event, incredible KRN coverage!!! great job by the city, by promoter and the broadcast team. street racing came “alive” on KRN, i will be racing this event next year!

  9. The quiet little City of Lockhart came alive over the weekend of March 2 & 3, 2013 with the introduction of the “Lonestar Grand Prix” to Central Texas. Visitors to Lockhart were amazed when they realized this was not your average go kart track race but instead…and I emphasize, “A WORLD CLASS KARTING EVENT”! The city is is abuzz about the weekend event and are already starting to look forward to next years event. City of Lockhart personnel are already planning to improve the race track for next year. The majority of the drivers said they LOVED the track because it was, in their words, “Scary and Fast”. Many of the drivers, especially in the shifter class’s, loved the ability to open up their Karts for some awesome speed down the straight away. Speaking for myself, I found the drivers to be super friendly and enjoyed their racing enthusiasm. Formula 1 has nothing on these guys except a bigger kart! 2014 here we come!

    • Couldn’t agree more, Lee!

      For those readers who may not know, Lee Weatherford is the City of Lockhart’s Public Works Director. Lee played a HUGE role in the staging, planning, and success of this event, AND in the success of our live broadcast here on Kart Racing Network.

      When you hear racers say “the city of Lockhart welcomed us with open arms”, Mr. Weatherford was a big part of that hospitality.

      • Thanks to the Staff of KRN and Lonestar Grand Prix Organization for putting Lockhart in the International limelight with your broadcast of some outstanding racing! We look forward to seeing you next year! KUDOS

    • Lee, just want to thank you and everyone else in teh city of Lockhart who helped make this event happen!! everywhere we went the city people were as kind and as polite as could be. can’t wait for next year!

    • this too was my first time watching kart races. so exciting!! never thought you could race these things through the streets, so AWESOME! to the people who made this happen, thanks for a great weekend and please come back next year!!!!!!!!!!

  10. This event was a blast. I live in Lockhart and was excited to hear that it was going to happen, but I must admit that I was more looking forward to it for my 7 year old as something new for him to see. I’m nat a race fan and until this weekend had never sat down and watched a race. I was really suprised at the speed and agility of the karts. I will say that now I am a race fan, at least a Kart fan. Good job Lee, Mayor White, and everyone else that helped pull this off. I can’t wait till next year.
