Indoor Kart Racing (01/29)

WRAPUP: We had 26 racers participating, and a few spectators.. The track layout has been recently modified and was very challenging.? We ran in 3 groups with some unfortunate delays due to timing issues and?other groups sneaking in ahead of ours, but a fun time was had by all.? Fast guy of the day was Steve at 36.256 closely followed by Gary with a 36.328.? Fast gal was Reese with a 37.948.

    Hi Pete, congrats on the new MINI, and absolutely.. please come on out and hang out. There is a pit area where people wait to race, and we will be in a couple groups so there will always be a bunch standing around.

    Looking forward to meeting you.

    We’ll be getting pizza delivered there at the end for those interested in staying and eating afterwards
