Alright, so the plans are set. The Itinerary is below. Now I just need a basic head count for James (SF) and the Go-Kart Track.


When: 2:30PM
Where: SpeedFactory (Directions on site - http://www.speedfactoryracing.net/ )

What are we doing? Hanging out, taking Pics and BBQ!!


Then what? Then we will all mob down to the Go-Kart Track for some head to head racing. (Directions and Prices here: http://www.grandprixraceway.com/ )
Ok guys, I just got off the phone with my friends Aki and Amber from Grand Prix Raceway. I have a pretty sweet package deal lined up for each person. Lots of racing will happen for each person. Even if you don't qualify for the final event, you will still get to have an extra race session.

Ok, if we just walked in and raced, this is how pricing goes. $20/race for non-members, $18 per race for members. This means if we each only wanted to race two 10min races, it would be $36-40 per person.

However, this is what we are going to get for $40/person

* Each person will get 5 practice laps to get to see the layout of the track and familarize themselves with the karts.

* Each person will get two 15 lap qualifying heats.

I asked that qualifying be done on a lowest lowest laptime basis and not a position basis. They said they can do this. The reason is because laptime gives a better idea of racer skill than position, because if Don or Krycheck's lard ass spins in front of you and traps you for a minute before you get free, it doesn't matter if you are Michael Shumaker, you are going to loose the race. By laptime, you only need to get 1 clean lap in to show your skills.

The top 7 (maybe 8 if we drive well enough to not just have bottleneck crashes with that many karts) laptime holders from the qualifying sessions advance to a 25lap main event. The top three fastest guys will get trophies on the podium, along with winning the betting pot. :)

The remainder of the whole group that didn't qualify to run in the main event will still get to run a full extra session each.

Also, the owners wife personally informed me that she would make sure that we all get extra long sessions to race.

Does this sound like a good enough deal for everybody? I think it's about the best bang for the buck you are going to find for $40 spent karting.

If this is what everybody wants, let me know ASAP, because she wants to be able to reserve the time block on her calender.

I am SOOO pumped about this! Karts are so much fun!!!
