Indoor Go Kart Racing Poll

We are hard at work planning an Indoor Go Kart racing event for the end of January, and we are still working on details.

We are looking at doing a 3-race Grand Prix series with the top finishers running championship race.

Cost for participation is $40.

Due to limited availability, we are currently narrowed down to two time slots..

Saturday evening 1/31/03

or

Early Sunday Morning 2/1/03.

We would get a discount for Sunday (probably $10 – $15 or so) if we are done before the standard opening time of 10:00 am. This means we would probably have to start by about 8:00am.

For those who are interested in attending, please post which of the times you would prefer. I think we will need firm commitments from 25-30 people to make this a go.

We will hopefully have our date and time nailed down this weekend.

  1. My vote is also for Sunday morning but I'd change my plans for either 🙂

    BTW for those that haven't experienced Chicago Indoor Racing in Buffalo Grove it's an amazing experience. First off you have to take a quick class and it does require you to wear a full driving suit and helmet (all provided as part of the cost). However it's extremely fun and very fast. It's also fairly demanding – I was actually quite sore the day after 🙂

  2. I too have raced, with Gabe actually, and agree that it's an amazing time. However, my vote is for Saturday Evening. They have a restaurant and bar as well as pool tables and many top quality video racing games.

  3. ACK! Not again! I was excited by the prospects of January, because my workplace is closed for the month. But we reopen on that weekend!! BOO!
    I really want to go, but neither time is possible for me unfortunately. I'll stay tuned to see if any other options open up. 🙁

  4. It doesn't look like we are going to be able to show up. I am going to have surgery on my knee in the begining of January, and am probably not going to be healed. Maybe next time!

  5. I think my preference would be Saturday night, but the notion of a slight discount on Sunday could sway my opinion. Either way I'm planning on being there. It sounds like I'll need to make an earlier trip to even have a chance against all the indoor cart racing veterans. Just remember…rubbing is racing!!!

  6. I am interested! My vote is for both, and lock us in overnight! All kidding aside,
    whatever choice can bring the most folks together is the one I vote for.

  7. argh! you early morning risers are going to be the death of me. i'll see about the sunday morning option.

  8. Just got my car 5 weeks ago, so I'm not a member (yet). But I'm interested in participating (and joining). Either day works for me.
