Sep 17th On-Track Club Event - 09-01-2011, 06:06 PM

9/28/11 update -----------------------------

No date established yet. Henry will bring this up at the Oct 8th meeting and take a poll from general membership on when we should attempt to do this next. Once selected, a new thread will be started.

UPDATE 9/15 -- Event is cancelled and will be re-scheduled

I need to let everyone know that one of our very own members has passed unexpectedly and the funeral service is scheduled for this weekend. There are club members who wish to attend, so I think the right thing to do is re-schedule this event to a later day out of respect for the services this weekend. I'll send out an email notice to those that expressed interest in the Karting event. Hopefully, between the email notice and this posting, no one will show up to Dallas Karting Complex on 9/17 as originally planned.


OK club members, it is time for an on-track event!

We reviewed and discussed this at the August meeting. Since then, Alex has been working through the details of the event itself, negotiating the cost and what we'll get for our money. I'll post updates here as they become available and we'll share all the details at the Sep 10th club meeting as well.

This is a club event, so your club will be picking up 50% of the tab. Please read on for specifics.

Who wants to attend?
Limited to licensed drivers. Per Alex's final update, no min or max. Post up if you want to attend so we have an idea of how much lunch to order.

This is open to all registered club members who are paid current with membership dues. If you wish to bring other family members or guests, they are welcome but will need to plan to pay the full fee.

What do I need to bring?
Bring a helmet if you have one. That is all you need.
If you don't have one, you will need to pay $10 to rent theirs. Per Alex's update, you'll actually be purchasing a head sock in order to use theirs.

When and where will this take place?
Right now, here's what it is shaping up to be. So go ahead and mark your calendars and re-arrange your schedules so that you can participate.

When: Saturday, September 17, 2011

Time: 10:00a until ? (probably 2 or 3)

Where: Dallas Karting Complex
5025 FM 1565 North.
Caddo Mills, TX 75135

We'll meet at Bankston Ford in the morning at 8:45am departing at 9:00am for those who wish to caravan to the facility. Otherwise, plan to be at DKC by 9:45am. Meet in the parking lot. I'll hand out a special discout coupon to each of you which you will need, as you will be making payment prior to going on track. We'll all go inside together around 10:00am.

How much does it cost?
As voted upon last month, the club will pay 50% of your fee, for each paid member in good standing. $40 for members, $85 for non-members. Lunch will be catered to the facility and we'll have a brief post race ceremony.

How does the racing work?
You'll get a 10 minute practice heat, and a 10 minute qualifying heat against the clock. Then based on how you perform, we'll be grouped by driver type for some heads up racing against each other in a 10 lap feature race. Plan is to only have club members racing on the track with other club members. If enough SVT club members show up, we will have the entire place to ourselves for a half day. If we back fill with outside participants, we'll structure it so the club members that do show will race against each other.

This will be fun, so don't miss it.

Stay tuned . . .

This is a huge adrenalin pumping event. Also a nice A/C place to rest between runs
