3 THINGS TO DO THIS WEEKEND AT MB2 RACEWAY IN SYLMAR

Each Friday marks the end of another week of school and work, as you look forward to having two days of freedom, relaxation and fun. Every weekend represents an opportunity to exchange the pressures of the daily grind for more pleasant pastimes, but first you have to find the best mix of activities to maximize your fun. Luckily, MB2 Raceway offers at least three exciting things to do this weekend near Los Angeles in one fun-packed venue.

Kart Racing Tops the Heart-Pounding Things to Do This Weekend

The thrill of speed combined with lighthearted fun makes kart racing an exhilarating weekend diversion. An indoor venue means that your weekend entertainment plans won’t be spoiled by unpredictable weather.

 

You can challenge yourself and compare your skill to the other racers in your group. Keeping an eye on the big screen and pushing for your best-ever lap time revs up the intensity and gives your weekend an exciting goal to shoot for. By emphasizing safety as well as fun, MB2 keeps your weekend enjoyment on track.

Weekend Warriors Go All-In for Laser Tag

Tired of sitting around all weekend? As an active pursuit, laser tag will help you get your family up off the couch without nagging them into anything as boring as exercise! Laser tag is a great weekend diversion that will turn on your competitive drive, even if you don’t think you have one.

If your family is full of take-no-prisoners adrenaline junkies, you may want to dive right into a free-for-all, pitting yourselves against everyone else in the arena. Alternatively, you can split off into teams for a bit more controlled combat. Either way, an epic session of laser tag will light up your family’s weekend.

Arcade Games for A Day of Play


A night out that’s built around activities every family member can enjoy is not just an indulgence. It’s quality time that reinforces bonds and makes memories. One place where you can find something to appeal to absolutely every family member is the MB2 Raceway arcade. An assortment of almost two dozen games makes the arcade the perfect addition to your crew’s weekend fun. Bright lights, zany music and tests of skill will keep kids of all ages engaged and happy. Maybe you’ll introduce your young ones to a classic arcade game that you’ve always loved. On the other hand, your kids might enjoy schooling you on the ins and outs of their favorite. Fun, prizes and good-natured competition will keep your weekend lively even when you’re not racing. Arcade Game Shortlist: 
  • Space Invaders
  • VR Rabbids
  • Connect Four Basketball
  • And much more!

HOW TO PLAN A GRADUATION PARTY THEY’LL NEVER FORGET

While most students look forward to graduation with pleasurable anticipation, there is also a lot of effort and stress that comes with making such a big change. As school days draw to a close, the need to mark the occasion is matched by the need to cut loose and release the pressure. For these reasons, planning a graduation party that is both celebratory and exciting is a must.

Why Planning a Graduation Party Means So Much

With such a meaningful milestone, it’s essential to plan a graduation party that’s more than a just standard bash. That’s because graduation marks a period of transition on multiple fronts. Perhaps most significantly, graduation is often a moment when friends have to go their separate ways, or at least have less time to spend together as their grown-up lives begin. This change in personal relationships makes having one last blast with friends a central part of any graduation party.

The location of a grad-night celebration carries its own significance. While it can be nice to revisit familiar sites of previous good times, graduation is about new adventures. Booking a celebration at an exciting new place can make a graduation party an opportunity to strengthen existing bonds while discovering new sources of fun together. A party that introduces friends and family to a new pastime could become the foundation of not just fond memories but a new tradition!

How To Plan a Graduation Party: It’s the Experience That Counts

A night to remember is built around unforgettable experiences rather than things. Whether reliving favorite pastimes or embracing a new experience, what people do makes life more memorable than what they have.

 

Since graduating highlights the evolution from youth to adulthood, those experiences should incorporate both childlike fun and grown-up excitement. After all, who doesn’t want to carry the most enjoyable parts of their youth along with them as they head into their adulthood!

The key to arranging a graduation party full of both enjoyable and unforgettable experiences is non-stop activity. The best party options offer enough variety to please every guest. Some partygoers will seek out adrenaline or achievement, speeding from one competition to another. Others will prefer games and activities on the lighter or sillier side, prioritizing laughter and camaraderie. If variety is “the spice of life” as the old saying asserts, it is also the heart and soul of a good party. Nothing kills the festive spirit faster than having guests get bored with doing the same old thing.

Planning a Graduation Party That Makes Memories

The months leading up to a student’s graduation can be filled with studying, preparation, and anxiety about the future. The moment of celebrating graduation should be filled with unique experiences and opportunities to make long-lasting memories.

Injecting laughter, excitement and fun into those final days as a student can transform the graduation celebration into an event to remember for life.  If you need help planning a graduation party unlike any other, contact MB2 Raceway to arrange a celebration that sends you racing toward your future.

In Louisville last year, past winner Christian Brooks (GRC Lites), said “I feel astounding… I need to thank my group at Dreyer and Reinbold Racing for giving me an astounding auto. We wound up getting the holeshot in the warmth race, semi, and last, so it wasn’t too difficult to keep the lead after that.”

This year Red Bull Global Rallycross returns to Louisville on Saturday, May 19th at 11:00am ET for its 2018 season opener. It should be amazing to see and at MB2 Raceway we’ll be there to support him! Christian Brooks is certainly a great driver and his love for racing started with his seat time at MB2.

ATTN: GO KART DRIVERS AT MB2 RACING – GO KART RACING FLAGS

UNDERSTANDING GO KART RACING FLAGS

Go Kart Racing is an exciting sport but making sure you are safe at high speeds is important. Knowing what the different kart flags mean is an important part of ensuring the safety of all racers and getting the most from your time on track.

We have a team of marshals on the tracks that are there for your safety. Their job is to ensure you have the best racing experience possible. The key importance between racers and the marshals is communication, best shown in the flags.

Each flag has a different meaning that should be obeyed at all times. If you ignore flags you may be disqualified, so it is important that you learn them well.

 

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT FLAGS & WHAT DO THEY MEAN?

Blue flag – One of the most common flags. This signals that a faster race car is coming up behind you, and you should hold your line and let them pass. Once they are passed you can increase your speed and get racing.

Yellow flag – Caution on the track, reduce your speed and do not pass.

Red flag – This is a very important flag, and it means that the race is being stopped. Stop your kart as safely and as quickly as possible, stay in your kart, and do as instructed by the marshal.

Black flag – You are being disqualified for dangerous racing or failing to adhere to other flags. You need to pull over as directed by the marshal.

Green flag – This signals the start of the race or that the race has resumed.

White flag – This means that you are on the final lap of the race.

Checkered flag – The first one across the line wins, and everyone else needs to slow down because the race is over.

We hope these flags will help give you a full briefing on how to use your kart and how to have a fun and safe race.

CATCHING UP WITH CHRISTIAN BROOKS

MB2 Motorsports driver Christian Brooks is in the middle of his second season on the Red Bull Global Rallycross circuit, competing in the Lites division. Brooks competed as a rookie last season, earning a reputation for being one of the most solid and consistent young talents on the tour, and inspiring many people to believe that he was destined for great things soon. While he finished fifth overall in the standings and never reached the podium at any event, he held his standings position for most of the year and almost never dropped out of the top five despite being one of the youngest drivers on the tour.

Now in his second season and with a new team, Dreyer & Reinbold Racing, Brooks has shot off the line and taken the circuit by storm. Let’s see how the MB2 Motorsports driver has fared thus far.

The season kicked off in Memphis, Tennessee, and from the very first practice, Brooks put the competition on notice, registering the fastest lap at 1:06.970. After qualifying second, Brooks won his second heat comfortably to claim a spot in the semi-final at the event, and a second-place finish there earned him a spot in the final. Brooks drove his best main event to date in the Memphis final, battling it out and claiming his first-ever podium, finishing third, just two seconds behind the race winner.

The series moved to Louisville, Kentucky, where Brooks once again made history. After a blistering practice run where Brooks was once again the fastest driver around the track, Brooks won his second heat and semi-final rounds to advance to the final. In the final, Brooks held off the competition to take the checkered flag and claim his first Red Bull GRC Lites series victory! He did so in resounding fashion, finishing over two and a half seconds better than the second-best racer.

That victory gave him a huge momentum boost in the early going on the season, placing him in the frontrunners of the championship standings.

The third stop came in Thompson, Connecticut, where two events were held on back-to-back days. After once again being the fastest driver in a shortened practice session, but he faced his first major adversity when he was disqualified from the qualifying heats. He didn’t let it deter him, however, and he won his first heat and finished second in his second and semi-final heats. All this led up to another solid final, where Brooks took second place, just 1.8 seconds behind the winner.

The second day appeared to be off to a flying start, but Brooks crashed out and didn’t finish his first heat before finishing third in his second heat. In the semi-final, Brooks once again ran into trouble, and didn’t finish, giving him a rough starting position for the main event of the day. Despite the immense adversity, Brooks still salvaged an excellent finish in third place, his fourth straight podium to start the year.

The series then headed north of the border in to Ottawa, Canada. However, for Brooks, this trip could not end quickly enough. Like the Connecticut race, the Ottawa event was actually two races in one weekend. The first event saw Brooks get off to a great start in practice, but Brooks struggled in qualifying with the fifth-best time. He bounced back, winning his semi-final heat comfortably, but the final did not go his way, and he was forced to retire early from the race, taking a DNF.

The next day didn’t get much better. Brooks struggled in qualifying, both heats, and the semi-final, finishing below the standards of success he had built for himself early on in the season. The main event didn’t treat Brooks any better, as he was unable to start the race, and once again was forced to take the tenth and bottom spot for the final.

As a result, the Ottawa weekend has put a dent in Brooks’ championship standings. After running at the front of the pack with the leaders for most of the year thus far, the Ottawa events saw his lead slip away, and he has since fallen to fourth overall. However, the series has a long way to go and Brooks isn’t far off the leaders. In fact, he sits just 12 points behind the third-place driver and 23 points behind second—a gap that can easily be made up in just a single event. Even the circuit leader Cyril Raymond’s gap isn’t safe, as he sits 63 points ahead of second.

With six events still remaining, including the season finale event in Los Angeles, the sky’s the limit for Brooks this season, and he’s already proven he has what it takes to contend for the title. He’ll be looking to get back to that form soon.

MB2 Raceways is a proud sponsor of Christian Brooks as he races the Red Bull Global RallyCross circuit this season.
