THE BIG ONE 2018

Post by REAR » Sat Jan 13, 2018 8:41 am

Rear Engine American Racer is proud to announce that we will once again be hosting THE BIG ONE at Fremont Raceway Park in Fremont Ohio.

This event is your chance to revisit the golden years of karting in a fun filled festival like atmosphere that is often copied but never duplicated. Come on out and see the machines that made up the roots of karting returning to their former glory being not only displayed but lapped also together with a swap meet, kart show, weekend long raffles, and much much more.

Mark the Labor Day weekend, September 1st. and 2nd. on your calendar now for the 17th. annual running of this historical karting classic and start making your plans for the best time you will ever have in karting.

Check the R.E.A.R guidelines for the simple kart specifications and regulations.

Keep your eyes on this website and this website only for event updates and please do NOT go to facebook or contact the track or anyone other then R.E.A.R. officials directly for any event info.

Hello,

Can you attach a 2018 Flyer / Schedule for the TBO event ?

Also in 2017 the event was Friday and Saturday - Sept 1st and 2nd.

This year 2018 it falls on Saturday and Sunday ? Sept 1st and 2nd ?

I believe there is no open track on friday, only set up and swap meet ? Track days are Saturday and Sunday ?

Please clarify this because of the day of the week change from 2017 to 2018.

Thanks,

Romero

Romero,

The official dates of THE BIG ONE have always been Saturday and Sunday with Friday as a early move in date only.

Friday move in starts at 11:00 and please do not try to show up early and set up where ever you please. Parking is first come first served however we must do it in a organized manner.

There is NO running of karts on Friday, swapping and shopping only will go on for the early birds however.

See you in a couple weeks.

R.E.A.R.
