Man that driving was redonkulous! You obviously understand that kart. When I drove I didn't have the feel for it. You could have used a rear mounted camera too.

Thanks for the video Lawrance... I was driving the same line (maybe a foot wider/deeper before Red Bull corner), but you/your kart never got squirmy under braking like I was, Nice driving! Next time we have to put the 50lb vest on you just to satisfy our curiosity.

Maybe you should have talked to them about switching brake pads between races.

I agree on additional weight. I think 185 lbs is a good cut off point.

Oh no, you mistook my comment. The squirmy brakes were most likely driver induced, although I did have one kart was substantially worst than others my fast times were all within a a couple tenths.

I was the slowest yet i still had a lot of fun, thanks Rob for putting this together, and i would definetly like to do it again over the winter.

and Jason, i think Brian's comment was a little tongue n cheek relating to the autozone (buying every grade of pad) story you told us at dinner, maybe not, but just a thought.

Somewhere in January after all the holiday junk has settled down would be good.

I'll check with Jim Beaudoin &amp; CIR about coordinating another event. Does anybody have a preferential day in mind? I can't make it Jan 22nd/23rd...

Given what happened last year when we tried to book a karting day the same day as the Packers played, should we do something in February just after football season's out? Or maybe at least wait until the Packers are out of it to book something?

Good point, Chris. In the meantime, I'll at least check with CIR to see if the big track is an option on Sundays. I'm guessing Sundays are still the preferred day of the weekend?

The full track should be available at Buffalo Grove on the following dates:

January 30th
February 13th
March 27th

Those are the days that they have endurance races scheduled for the evenings so I'm assuming that they will have the track set up in the morning.

Not necessarily, it takes maybe 20 minutes to set it up

If the long course is not already set up, there is a separate special additional charge for for creating the long course.

I prefer the long course - either direction - that way, there are more opportunities for people to try to pass me :)

Sounds like you've been strategizing more chicanery!

Hmmm.... yes..... chicanery.... To what might you be referring, pray tell??! All in good fun, of course!

One additional note regarding the big track: If we want to have our own "event" as we have in the past, we need to have at least 18 participants. So start planning your chicanery now!
