Calling all Esk8 racers :
Our community has been invited to participate in an exhibition race at the 11th annual ‘Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix’. This is a 3 day shifter karting event sponsored by Toyota that pulls drivers from across the country to compete for bragging rights. This is a rare opportunity to showcase how Esk8 has evolved and grown into a sport worthy of its own place in the exciting world of extreme sports. The owner of SKUSA, the premier karting association in the US, is offering us a night race on Saturday, Sept 28th to include announcer, cameras and big screens highlighting every turn for an audience of thousands in addition to a spotlight interview to promote our sport & sponsors. We need at least 15 riders with boards that will do 30 mph or faster to commit by this Friday, Sept 13th in order to secure our spot at this event. There are no entry fees, insurance is covered by the promoter, the event includes street party, live music, car show and great kart racing. Check it out at www.streetsoflancaster.com and contact Moe Stooge with any questions and get your name confirmed on the roster!

Damn… that’s super rad.
Really hope this happens.
Wish I was closer and had a board up and running. ( that could compete )

If you can crack 30mph, have a full face helmet and pads you are in👍 . I need 15 confirmed by friday to get the green light. 35,000 spectators at this event last year. It will be a big step for Esk8.

What are the helmet requirements? Just full face? My bell super 3r is full face but only meant for mountain biking.

I’m just finishing my build so I won’t be able to practice really but I am interested

Wait why ride the streets of Lancaster? Lancaster is shitty and grid roads. Willow springs is literally 10 minutes down the road with world class racing tracks from steep and curvey to straight and flat.

And why does all the cool shit happen in places I’ve lived, when I’m not there? #salty

Thanks. Won’t be attending. Otherwise I’d love to. God damnit!

Lol. I just heard one of their songs the other day and was wondering what happened to them.

Really wish I lived closer and could go to this. Sounds like loads of fun.

Anybody from MN or the midwest wanna organize a carpool/roadtrip? I’d love to do this
