anybody want to do some high speed karting up by road america? they have a large (0.8 mile) karting course. it is actually inside the main 4 mile race track - the karting track is inside the carousel. if you have been to chicago indoor racing this is a little like that - only the track is wider and larger, it is outdoors, and the karts are a bit faster. just as with CIR you get print outs of your lap times when all the racing is done.

here's a video of a version of the course (its configured by race and group size i believe): Road America | Road Racing at its Best! | Briggs & Stratton Motorplex

date:
may 22nd, sunday morning, probably 10am

location:
road america, elkhart lake, wi.

cost:
$105

i'm going to be up here at a resort for a work thing on the weekend. this is a post work thing event. we need 30 people to make this happen else the price is not very economical. i'm at 19 last i checked for work. i need to know if you are interested soon and need to get the money prepaid as well. the event goes on rain or shine; i've heard it's rather fun in the rain although i bet you get a bit dirtay. fyi concessions will be open and there will be SCCA races going on all day on the 4 mile race track around us. please respond to this thread or PM me if you are interested! sessions were estimated at 8 minutes and you will get at least 4 sessions on the track if this is run like it was when we did it in 2009. if you want to watch the SCCA races outside of the area we're in i believe you'd have to pay general admission, if you wanted to hang around and watch the races from this area for a while it would not cost anything. not if we don't get 30 we can still do it, it just costs more; ie. 25 people at $126.

I'll see if I can get a few people rounded up. I've done it before, would be fun to go again!

Unfortunately, no. I blew my pay check on Supra parts and of the 6-7 people that I asked, all wanted to go, but had plans to go out of town that weekend.

we might be in 2 years, or 1 at the earliest. i don't think it's very easy to get on this track, the price point is not cheap until you get a group of 30 people. because i have a good history and relationship with them now i was able to get in with a group of 20, although that is still more of an exception kind of situation.
