Event : KARTING - SUPER MINI GRAND PRIX

Location : XTREME KARTING, Huly Hill Road, Newbridge, EH28 8PH - https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Xtr...ngdom&t=m&z=14

Date / Time : SUNDAY, 13th JANUARY 2013 / 10.30hrs for an 11.00hrs start

Cost : 37.50 per driver.

Here it is - that chance to banish the post festive season blues and maybe even go home with a bit of 'silverware' for the mantlepiece. This is the same price as last time, with a freebie upgrade from a Mini Grand Prix format to a Super Mini Grand Prix - for that, we get a series of short practice sessions, followed by 2 heats of 15 laps each, then a 15 lap final for everybody. Although only 14 places have been allocated for now in the online booking shop, up to 30 drivers can be accommodated so don't panic if you should find it fully booked - just PM me and I'll get Xtreme to make the other places available. I've been asked by Xtreme to ask you if you could please make your bookings by 14th December, although I might be able to get an extension on this deadline but don't bank on it, .

Booking : Click on this link - http://xkedinburgh.clubspeedtiming.c...n/Default.aspx - which will take you to the 'Online Booking' screen. Near the top-left of the screen, select 'Next Month' until you reach the listings for January 2013. Select 'our' event by clicking on the red highlighted date (13/01/2013) next to the Event Title - "Alfa Owners Club - David Boyd", then select 'Book Now' and follow the instructions.

Remember to arrive no later than 10.30 so that you can attend the safety briefing and get kitted-out in racesuits and helmets before the serious business starts at 11.00

Also, to help speed up the process on the day if you could pre-register your details it would be a great help, . Go to : http://clubspeedtiming.com/xkedinburgh/register.aspx , and the Event Code is 8457.

P.S. If anybody fancies going for a bite of lunch afterwards, if you could indicate so in your RSVP I'll see what I can organise.

Only 4 weeks to go for this folks. It's a great fun couple of hours. I'm hoping to have some work colleagues along for it.

Would love to come but sadly I am one of the many that have been affected by our governments austerity measures and now fall into the zero tax credit band. On top of that every time I blink something is going UP in price ...my salary is struggling to keep up ....he ho its Xmas and 2013 is upon us. God knows what I will spent my 23p in the 1 after tax (direct & indirect) next year......

Unless we reach the minimum requirement for the event (set by Xtreme) of 8 confirmed competitors by Monday 7th, this will regrettably have to be CANCELLED / POSTPONED, .

Doing my best to get some of my mates to come. Difficult when it's so far away from us in the 1st place. So if we can make the effort from over 100 miles away, then I'm sure some more of you who are a lot closer can make the effort to come along too

Slowly but surely, we're getting there............... .

Good luck with the test Aimee. If you were an actor, I'd say "Go break a leg" but I'm not so sure that's the appropriate thing to say here.

I'm holding my breath as I type this - it looks like we'll scrape together sufficient numbers on the day if everybody who's said that they're coming turns up.

Could I ask those of you who haven't already done so via the RSVP facility, to PM me please to confirm whether or not you'll be joining us for a bite of lunch at a local hostelry after the event. If you could include an indication of how many 'heads' will be in each of your respective parties, it'll give me an idea of what size table I need to reserve.

Ta muchly!
David

I'll have 2 with me from Laurencekirk and my boss (a former karter) will be along too! By my reckoning I think we'll have at least 12.

A former karter, is that not cheating?

I now have a car load from Laurencekirk, so by my reckoning more than half of the drivers on the day are from Laurencekirk or surrounding area. My mate Eddie is Mr Competitive! Watch out for him!!

*** IMPORTANT ***

If you haven't already done so, could you please prebook with Xtreme Karting using this link: Club Speed ..:: Welcome to Club Speed Online Reservation System ::.. - scroll down the page and you'll eventually come to an entry that reads "Alfa Owners Club - David Boyd".

Reason being, Xtreme need to know in advance how many people they are preparing for in terms of staffing levels etc (there is a legal requirement on the ratio of staff to drivers seemingly) so if a load of 'extra' participants turn up unexpectedly, they could well find themselves confined to the spectator gallery, .

There are still, at the time of writing this, 5 slots available in the 'online shop' above but if they have sold-out when you try to book, drop me a PM and I'll get Xtreme to make some more available.

Thanks
David

OK, so that's lunch organised. I've booked a table here Home | Bridge Inn, Ratho (same place as last year for those who attended), provisionally for 10-12 people. However, I've promised them that I'll phone them on Sunday morning to confirm numbers so you've got 'til then to make your mind up and I can adjust the table size accordingly, .

@ Mike and Andy, I'll be leaving no later than 9 am. Another thought I'd had was leave at 8:30pm and have a Bacon Roll and cup of tea stop at The Horn? Just a thought.
