KleenSpeed just sent out this announcement of an electric go-kart event to be held in a couple days in Fremont. Sounds cool, but I wonder why it was announced on such a short timeframe. To participate you'd have to already have your Kart built, ..so.... anyway, could be interesting and it's close enough I'll probably attend.

ABOUT WILLIAM CAMARA
Driver for KleenSpeed Technologies
The KleenSpeed E-KART will be driven in the ScootOut Challenge by rising racing star, William Camara of Fremont. Currently, just 16 years old and one of the fastest young personalities on the racing scene, William has already won 12 championships and taken over 400 1st place trophies in races and heat events driving karts, quarter midgets and JR NASCAR racers.
William will have his hands full with the instant torque and big power of the KleenSpeed E-KART, but we hope his native talent and considerable experience will help him master the machine and set the top Kart time of the Challenge event.
