Kart Racing - Pole Position Raceway Oct 13th - 10-01-2012, 09:04 PM

As discussed at the club meeting last month, we'll meet at Pole Position for some go-cart racing and fun on Saturday, October 13th at 9:00 am.

This takes the place of our monthly meeting, so we will not meet at Bankston Ford, but at the go-cart facility instead.

Pole Position Raceway
10550 John W. Elliott Drive
Suite 100
Frisco, TX 75033

This is a club subsidized event for all current paid members in good standing. For you, the club will pick up $20 of the karting tab. Non-members and guests are welcome, but will pay the normal rate. Henry may have some discount coupons to help offset the cost for guests and non-members. You can pick those up when you arrive at the facility. See Henry.

The facility normally opens at 10am on Saturdays, but the owner will open early for us so we can get in and get started as a group. We'll race first, then get together for an an abreviated board/club meeting after the racing and while at the facility, in one of their meeting rooms. Then the plan is to caravan over to Rudy's BBQ/Smokehouse for lunch, right down the street. Lunch is buy-your-own, but I'm sure it will prove to be a great time none-the-less. Rudy's has some great food (and drink) and I'm sure there will be some spectacular (and not so spectacular) go-cart racing stories to share.

It is an indoor facility and the karts are electric. As with any racing event, I would recommend wearing long pants or jeans and some good sturdy shoes (i.e. no flip-flops).

Pole Position photos and videos - 10-13-2012, 03:19 PM

The club had a great October meeting/driving event this morning at Pole Position Raceway in Frisco. More photos can be viewed here. Hopefully some member from the other run group also took photos of our group - I find it hard to drive and take photos at the same time!

We had 22 drivers in 2 run groups so there were plenty of people on the track at every turn!
