WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—The Purdue Grand Prix Foundation is excited to hold its 64th annual kart race. Organizers said they've anticipated this moment.
With the effects of COVID, in-person spectators are limited. However people who purchase a ticket will have access the Live-Streamed Production of Race 64.
Director of Public Relations for Purdue Grand Prix Foundation, Sami DeLey said the board had to receive permission from Purdue and the county. DeLey said she's thrilled because she hasn't had the opportunity to experience a kart race.
"It's just kind of cool to be that year that we did it and that we put on a race in the midst of a pandemic and did it safely and did it correctly and also successfully as well," said DeLey.
Tickets are on sale right now. If the event is canceled due to weather it will be held the next day. Grand Prix 64 will be held this Saturday April 24th from 2-5 PM. The track is near the Alexander Field.
