Alright guys, we're on the books. Sunday April 17th from 1pm to 5pm. We can have 12 karts on track at a time so ideally lets get 24 people and we'll have two run groups alternating. The cost is going to be $110 each and includes safety gear for those who don't have it. Assuming enough people sign up some drinks/snacks will also be provided.

If the weather prevents the event we will reschedule for another date. I have to pay a flat fee for this up front so I cannot give refunds. If you need to cancel ideally you can find someone else to buy your seat off you.

The list below is the people who said they would be interested. When I've received your payment you'll be locked in. Any names below which I haven't received payment from by Friday March 18th will be removed to allow others a chance. If there's an open spot feel free to throw your name on it.

PM for address if you want to send a check or paypal evan.levine@gmail.com.

Rough Outline - we can adjust as needed. Thanks to Peter K for the idea.

1pm - 2pm - (4) 12 minute heats to determine times and warm up

2pm - 3pm - Sort into two groups by lap times and run (2) 25 minute standing start races

3pm - 4pm - Run another (2) 25 minute standing start races

4pm - 5pm - 60 minute Enduro with 1 person from each group per team of 2

Roughly 105 minutes of seat time, which should be more than enough to make everyone's drive home miserably sore.

Alright guys, looks like perfect weather for tomorrow!

As mentioned earlier, a number of people are meeting at my place at 10:30 to carpool, if you need my address PM me or call 919-599-5644. Otherwise we'll see you up there. I recommend getting to VIR by 12:30 so we can get any paperwork and equipment out of the way before we start at 1:00.

Wear a long sleeve shirt, pants, closed toe shoes (sneakers, etc). If you have a helmet I recommend it, otherwise they have loaners.

Sorry I couldn't make it to this one. Work schedule didn't allow for it. Hopefully this will be another success, and there will be another one that I can make it to. I see Val's name isn't on the list, either, so it looks like someone new gets to win. Laughing
Have fun, be safe. Hopefully I'll make the next one.

I had a blast. Thank's Evan. I think everyone who drove kart 36 at least once should get some kind of purple heart medal or something. I know I did and that was _painful_.

P.S. I accidentaly kicked up some gravel pulling out. I hope i did not send it into any cars. If i did, I am so sorry. Please lemme know.

Some pics below. Sorry I was able to take only shots of the group I was not driving in.

Maybe we can do something shorter with half the people so it's not so hard to fill up. It's not that I don't want to do more karting events, it's just that this group has proven itself pretty unreliable at this point.

Thanks to those who brought friends, co-workers, etc, to make this happen.
