    Should be a better turnout. Already have a FCA member from OK and his two SMU sons that are coming. I have the free passes for those that came last time and also I will give one to each new person that attends.

    Let me know if questions. I can post the website for any new people if you want.

    Might have to get them to open the garage, but there is nice indoor parking.

    Rob,
    What kind of Karts are you running? I have a 125cc Shifter set up for racing with a CR125 Honda; blueprinted, etc. Do you use this type of Kart or the ICC versions? Any comparisons on speed or driving differences? Just wondering what the rest of the country is doing.
    Have fun, stay in 5th gear,
    Jim

    We are the Scuderia Elettrica :D

    These are electric carts and an indoor facility. When the weather gets better, we'll probably go to Speedzone (outdoor, gas carts) a time or two for variety.

    Gosh I really want to try out this carting, but it is 4 days weekend, and I cannot make it as of now.

    Wasn't this used to be held in Tuesday?

    Looks like 8 or 9 total, plus whoever shows up unexpectedly. (Ron? Greg S?) Sounds like fun.

    Ron said he'll try to make it. I sent a reminder to TBC, just in case.

    I am out. Apparently I strained my back a little this weekend and I am a little sore. Bouncing around in those carts will not make it any better.

    Ken,
    Come on out and have a drink anyway. You could just hang out...

    Is anybody driving their Ferrari today besides Tillman? If it keeps clearing I may go home and get mine.

    Good turnout, I think I counted 12. One new person. Phil, what's your username on here?

    Karts were still hit and miss, timing was hit and miss (but not 100% miss like past 6 months).

    Still a good time overall. Jano, Jayson, and Greg were having great battles in group #2. I did well in the first session of Group #1, but Tillman dominated the other sessions.

    9 continued the fun over at Humperdinks.

    Everyone still happy with TBC each month?

    I was a lot of fun last night & great to see more people coming. My only question is this, if they don't re-open the bar & fix the carts, can we just find another place? TBC is already in major disrepair & don't see any future plains for fixing anything.

    My .02 cents

    We've tried other places Will, without much success. Speedzone is nice, but you can't race head to head as much, and there is NO timing whatsoever. There's also a place on Coit that you can race head to head, but again, no timing. All the options we've tried are pretty much 'equal' to TBC.

    Those 3 were no shows, but we had a few surprises too like Phil and Don.
