Post CalSpeed shade canopies
I am writing with the unfortunate news that CalSpeed Karting Center is forced to remove the mesh canopies shading the grid and private garages. The removal is mandated by the County of San Bernardino Building Department, due to the canopies not having official ratings for wind load or earthquakes. I have been working with structural engineers and county officials for several months on possible solutions, all to no avail. At this time, all options to keep the canopies have been exhausted, so they have been removed as of July 16.

The timing of this removal is far from ideal with the heat of summer upon us. Aside from shading the grid at club races, CalSpeed uses the canopies on a regular basis for schools, corporate programs, and arrive and drive events. As such, we are working diligently on an affordable solution that will satisfy all the requirements placed upon us by both the County and the Speedway.

Thanks for your understanding in this matter.

Only as a stop-gap measure while this all gets worked out, I suggest we go to umbrella holders like they use in Moto GP.
