    Default Interest in a Brisbane Go Karting Day?

    Hey guys and girls,

    Just wanting to gauge how many people would be interested. Any thoughts on which track, dates, who we should handicap... Cal, Neil... looking at you two... I like Kingston Park Raceway myself and don't want to clash dates with any motorsporting events people might have on. Ideas?

    Ok guys, reading the thread orestes created a while back and others, the venues come down to Archerfield, Landsborough, Kingston and Willowbank. I'm thinking the weekends of the 31 July-1 August or 7-8 August which should give all interested enough time to sort things out. Have to see how busy the tracks are as well to see if we can get those dates or others.

    i was always intrested in this, i just don't think theres enough of us frogers in queensland to get the numbers required for a good day of karting ... or maybe its that nobody likes me enough and doesn't want to be asociated with any of my ideas

    I'm in for this. I'll run rings around you Cal. Well, I will try hehe. And yes, i agree that some ballast is needed to even up the field to one particular entrant.

    Either of the mentioned weekends sounds good for me Rich.

    7th/8th August sound good to everyone else? Which track? Kingston Park Raceway, Archerfield or Willowbank? I vote Kingston Park. I'm leaving for Winton in the morning so I'll ring next week and see if we can get track time on that weekend. Let me know which track!

    Hey guys,

    I'm moving the go karting weekend back a few weeks as round 4 of the motorkhana series is on this weekend. Due to other commitments, how does the weekend of 4/5 September suit you guys? I'm looking to get a group of workmates sorted for that day so that should bump the numbers up sufficiently even if there's only a handfull of AF'ers. Kingston Park Raceway, Corporate Level 2 Sprint is what I'm looking at, $70 for a five lap warm up, five lap qualifying session and three seven lap races included for the price as well as karting license and helmet hire for those that don't have one. We've done Level 3 Sprints (4 x 7 lap races) and we were wrecked by the end of it.

    Rich

    p.s. I'm seeing if we can get 20 or more which entitles a group discount so that price may or may not come down depending on numbers.

    I stuffed up, the Beaudesert Swap is on the 12th of September, although it seems interest is low in the Kart day whenever it happens, Rich.

    I'm still keen if this happens. Depends on the weekend as I'm very busy at the moment.

    I know of a carting nite that runs every 4 to 6 weeks, wa based around the QR engineers and workshop guys, but has grown out of that and now also has 4 or 5 ppl from the VW club show up, aswell as many rings ins. Used to always be at willowbank, but now goes to one of the 2 tracks at archifield (the new one is expensive so not many ppl go to the ones at that track). I will tell you guys the date when I get the email in about the next one if you want?
