child's play. this place is more money, but worth it. HERE


I agree, this place is much better than speed zones. Unfortunately (as with all go-cart racing), it all comes down to weight. I need to race against people in my weight class, or everyone else needs to carry some weight belts to make it even.

Do they have weight belts at the track?

We could have an Open Division and a Clydesdale Division.

No, but they should. I'm bringing a 30lb weight for Lobo.

Totally in for that. It sucks to watch one a smaller, skinnier friend pass you on the straights.

Haha! Rad...

Let's setup a day and time soon, so I can make the proper arrangements to be able to attend...

Do these places get pretty busy on the weekends or are they pretty dead due to the economy?

If we're going to go as a group, I'd prefer a day/time when there are fewer people there.

Ben's not coming until Mid October - Let's wait to see what the CCL schedule is going to be.

I'm only familiar with Speedzone and the times that I went it was fairly busy on the weekends...

I agree with your sentiments on the second and third points...

everybody is welcome to join in.

don't mind on which day or which place we go, as long as they allow heavyweights like me to race as well.

i don't disagree with Lobo much, but K1 is 100x better than the other place.

when you decide what day you are going post it up, i might join in.

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which "unskilled people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it." The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average.

Let me ask my magic 8 ball whether or not we need to be concerned about the Galaxy having to play a CCL game in October...


"Signs point to No"

Let's wait until it gets closer to that week and pick a weekday evening to go. No one knows what their work or school schedule is going to be like that far in advance, so it wouldn't do much good to say "Who's In?" just yet.

Rebecca ALWAYS wins the chick division. Even better that it's at K1 Speed. We won like 3 free races a year or so ago.
IT'S ON BITCHES!
