Kart Racing 01/30


WRAPUP:  22 participants came out to enjoy some intense racing.  We had a few new people and a bunch of regulars were broken up into two groups.  There were some thrills, chills, bumping and grinding, and a few short tanks of fuel, but we got a bonus longer race at the end to make up for it.  A fun time was had by all.  Fast lap time of the day goes to Steve R. at 22.76 closely followed by Ken E. at 22.82.

    from what i recall we can bring our own helmets right? looks like you need to borrow the racing shoes from adam so you can fill them.

  3. Yes, you can bring your own full face helmet with faceshield.

    Although Adam has smaller feet, there is no way that I can fill his shoes 😉
