thank you saleenlocator and pas for sponsoring

g-force carts

Our -mile indoor track is a road course that twists and turns throughout our facility, allowing drivers to use their skills to out maneuver their competitors. The track is concrete and is specially prepared, so the grip of the karts are excellent. To compliment the racing environment, we used NASCAR tires to outline the track that were used at the Coca Cola 600, Richmond, and the California Winston Cup and Busch Series racing events. Yellow caution lights highlight the track during mishaps on the track and the end of the races. Our state-of-the-art facility features a computerized timing system that tracks each karts lap times. Sessions can include up to 12 races and last 8 minutes. Each racer receives a printout of their race performance: number of laps, lap times, average lap time, heat ranking, and over all ranking of the day.

After receiving your race ticket, a safety briefing is conducted to cover the rules, regulations and racing eticate on the track. From there you'll be properly filtted with a DOT approved helmet, a neckbrace and off to the pits for your heat. Once the Track Marshals buckle all racers into their karts, down comes the green flag to begin the race! The Track Marshalls will monitor the race and communicate to the racers solely using the international race flags, which is covered in the initial safety briefing.

Well there is food and drinks for 350 people... I'd have to guess it'll be a good turn out! See you tomorrow Mike!

07-08-2011, 07:48 PM
I think Greg is joking about the rain. He is a card.

07-08-2011, 08:00 PM

Greg said the go cart track was not the best. Greg also says other than possible early day showers, the weather should be great tomorrow. Have fun!

CONGRATULATIONS to the Stig for beating Ted's daughter who was out for a joy ride. After carrying his ugly helmet on the plane, he managed last place in those who were trying. Drank himself to bed. Anyone near PAS come on down as the weather in great as well as the turn out. Scott

I grabbed a few pictures and videos. Here is a link as well as a few pictures...

Photographic evidence.... notice the final lap time... my daughter who has never
driven a kart and was basically out for a joy ride beat the pink stig on the last lap...

Chris... a 40? Really? If my shoulder wasn't killing me, I probably could have beat
that and I outweigh you by at least 75 pounds...
