Go-kart Track

Just been karting at this place in Oldbury:

The Raceway Birmingham

I think it might be fairly new (not heard of it before), but just thought I'd let you know it's there, as it's a good fun indoor track.

I did the 30 mins, and I feel like I've been thoroughly beaten up... I think the 60 mins would kill me Still, I'd give it a try!

Well if enough people are interested I'm happy to make some enquiries. Their website seems to say that the Super Circuit, with both tracks joined together, is available at no extra cost until the end of August. Sounds like a pretty good deal.

So who's up for it then?

OK, so so far that's:

Aubrey
Redgiulietta
146alfafan
v6hughes
Turismo Todd (possibly)
Garwood1

Who else?

Once we've given folk a longer chance to express interest, I can start investigating dates and cost

I'd definitley be up for going again! IIRC it was £35 each for 5 mins of qualifying + a 30 mins race.

We're up to:

Aubrey
Redgiulietta
146alfafan
v6hughes
Turismo Todd (possibly)
Garwood1
EVEL
GTV Rob
Simplyalfas x4
cloverboy145 (possibly)
thefunkaygibbon (possibly)

So that's already 14 if we can get a date that everyone can make. Any other takers? If so, copy and paste the above list into your reply and add your name. Once I've got some possible dates, I'll let you know. Then we can agree the date and set up a proper event thread so you can all submit an RSVP

Cheers
Aubrey
