STLAR is setting up some monthly indoor Karting events at Pole Position to cover the cold winter months. The first one is scheduled for December 5th at 7:00 PM. The fee is $70, which covers 3 sessions, Practice, Qualifying and the Race. We need a minimum of 10 drivers to get a reservation. The last time we set this up we had over 20 drivers and a good time was had by all. Please let me know if there is any interest in participating.

Here's a video I did from our event a couple of years ago:

The first event is Dec 5th. But we may schedule ones in Jan and Feb if there is interest.

It is going ahead then?

I'm not sure if I can get along or not, just wanted to make sure that it was actually happening since not many people have expressed interest here. Assuming it is, is it OK simply to show up on the night?

Actually we have almost a full list for Saturday night but there are probably a couple of spots open. The list was being kept on STLAR. Here's a current copy:

1. Barry Reed
2. Todd Knauer
3. Jeffrey D. Wheat
4. Gene Gene the Dancin' Machine
5. JJ Jester
6. Brandi Stanley
7. Chris Hanson
8. Jason Cohen
9. Mike Clanahan
10. Mark Trent
11. Michael Wirrick
12. Dave Lawshe
13. Tyler Lawshe
14. Nathan Nazari
15. Pete Kurtz
16. Robbie Graber
17. Tom Chevalley
18. Ernie Miller
19. Evan Adkins (Maybe)
20. Khaled Shabany (Maybe)
21. Michele Shabany (Maybe)
22. Seth Heim (Maybe)
23. Tommy Specker (Maybe)

I believe there is room for 24. So if eveyone shows up who said they are showing up and all of the ones who said they "might" show up show up there would still be 1 spot open. Most likely a couple of the maybes won't show up and even a couple of the ones who said they are going to be there might have something come up so, chances are that a few more people could show up and get in (1 for sure right now).

I guess there should be at "least" a few open spots if you want to show up tomorrow night Stig.

Ah right, I'm not on STLAR so wasn't aware.

I'm come along and if there is a spare spot I'll have a go.

Stig.

Great fun night, though after my two or three instances of heavy contact with the walls and in one case a head-on collision after a spin, I could barely walk the next evening. Still got visible bruises from the seat belt straps now. Jeez I feel Old.

When's the next one?

We have 21 drivers committed for this weekend. So if there is enough interest we will have the next winter karting in February. I will post an update soon.

Hey Stig, I should have talked to you about this last night at the meeting but didn't think of it. There is another STLAR gokart night this Saturday night, same time (be there around 7 or a little after) same place. I don't know how else to get hold of you so hopefully you see this. Let me know and I'll get you on the list (I think there are only 2 or 3 spots left open right now).
