    OK, here are the OFFICIAL details on the NYMC Grand Prix New York Karting League. This is what you need to know:

    1) There will be 5 race days. 4 days will be a qualifier and race, the final day will be the enduro race with no qualifier. Starting position will be based on points for the season. Each race day will feature a different track configuration. There are two tracks, so 4 possible configurations. The final enduro will be on the combined super-track.

    2) In order to actually hold the league, we need between 20 and 26 people. We cannot do the league with less than 20 people. This is the price for the league:

    NYMC Members: $600
    Non-Members: $700

    This includes everything you need to show up and race with us.

    3) These are the race dates:

    Tuesday 2/19 8PM
    Tuesday 3/4 8PM
    Tuesday 3/18 8PM
    Tuesday 4/1 8PM
    Tuesday 4/15 8PM

    We will have exclusive track use from 8-9 pm on these dates. That means, we will be on the track at 8 PM, and you should plan on arriving by 7:15 to sign in and suit up.

    But Matt, it seems so expensive!

    Let me be very clear. It is expensive because it is exclusive. This is the only way to ensure that we will have a private track at a guaranteed time. If you want to do arrive & drive, and you show up with 10 friends, and there's a 16 year old girl who doesn't know what she's doing, they will put her with you and she will **** up the whole race. Or, they could split up all your friends based on first come first served. This way, it's just us, with customized configurations and points standings, and the super track, which is not available at all to the public. Additionally, once GPNY opens it's almost guaranteed that the wait times for arrive & drive will be between 1 and 2 hours. With this league, there is NO WAIT TIME. At 8PM every other Tuesday, the track is ours, period.

    if you want to be a part of the league, I need payment in full by February 10th. We accept cash, checks, or credit cards. PM me or email me at Matt@newyorkmotorclub.com.

    The league is open to all members and to non-members on a case-by case basis. Well known friends of the club are welcome. If we don't have at least 20 people, the league cannot happen, so if you're interested, sign up now and tell your friends.

    I'm in, who's coming with me?

    I think the price is fair for what your offering. The first tuesday is during the Presidents Week holiday and I will be away as I'm sure others will also. Otherwise I'm in.

    I know the first day is at the tail end of presidents weekend, but it's 8 PM on the tuesday, so i figure most people would be home by then. if that day is the day holding you back from joining, please let me know, as maybe i can get the whole thing shifted by a week.

    This is an awesome awesome opportunity to have the time of your life (on a weekly basis).

    I was up there and recently did a private event and it was worth every cent and then some.

    Due to business travel obligations I can't make most of these dates, but if I were available, I'd be there.

    DO IT!

    If there is still anyone out there who is interested in joining the karting league, now is the time to sign up! I need 20 people to do the league, and signing up means actually paying, not just telling me that you're in. There are 5 days left to sign up, I need money by the end of the day on the 9th. If there are any questions please let me know.

    unfortunately no, and today is the last day. I guess people weren't as into it as I thought they would be.

    Karting league officially off..... ugh.

    Hey Matt

    We've got a league we're trying to pull together among a group of Porsche Club racers and DE guys. The group is being formed at www.rennlist.com in the racing forum.

    One of the guys from Rennlist sent me a link to this thread. I'm headed over there today to work out the details. We have over 30 guys right now who have expressed interest pending the final details. As you experienced, we'll probably be short of that number but we do have quite a number of guys who are very close to the track. If you or anyone on this board would like to hear the details of the league, send me an email at sfoster13@aol.com and I'll add you to the email list for details. The more guys we get the better.

    Regards,
    Sean Foster
