    Scottish Karting Meet

    There seem to be a decent number of us now - Anyone fancy a trip to ScotKart one Saturday afternoon (Clydebank or Cambuslang)

    How about the one in Edinburgh with the twin engine outdoor track? If not, as you say, plenty in Glasgow.

    Re: Scottish Karting Meet

    Scotkart run "open" events most weekends that allow smaller groups to race against each other - If Raceland do a similar deal then it would be a great option - A longer track with faster karts - Awesome in the wet [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Exclusive events at Scotkart are for 24+ and Raceland for 16+ - Will we get that many?

    David/Mark,
    I'm going to ping a few others to see if we can get a decent number - Scotkart will take any number from 1 upwards.

    Happy Birthday to David R!

    Wah!, DJ, what' happened to the 13th! Well, actually, I know, cos I phoned them up.

    I'll need to check if I can make the 20th. 3 hours is a fair time on the track and I've got some other arrangements already made, hence me reserving the 13th. I'll see what I can do though.

    Any more takers?

    Scotkart has 2 indoor circuits - Both with single engine karts - LPG at Cambuslang and petrol at Clydebank - The only place in Scotland I know with twin engines is Raceland south of Edinburgh. - Raced there 2 weekends ago - with ice on the circuit [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Glad you all had a good time. Hey Mark 10 out of 38 'aint that bad! Last time I was carting I got t-boned all the time. The drivers got a caution but it was of no use to me having been spun into last place. Small consolation, I got my Xmas shopping done! Drove back to Kilwinning at 40mph after I came off of the M8!!!! Why do people have to drive soooo slow!

    Yep, by the last couple of races I was probably needing some anger management [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif[/img] , but starting at the back meant I could get some revenge. That was fun [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    40MPH, ouch!

    Re: Scottish Karting Meet

    been there to! my old boss said you could go flat out round the start straight and 1st corner on the track North of Glasgow. I eventually tried and realised that being 3 stone lighter I got up a bit more speed on the straight. Full speed into the tyres sideways does rattle your rib cage a bit LOL

    Re: Scottish Karting Meet

    Just checked the Raceland web site - They have an open sprint meeting ( 4 heats of 10 laps - 930M outdoor track) with their twin engine karts on the morning of Sunday 11th Jan - This is a non championship round of their open hire kart Super GP series - Think I'll give it a go - Anyone else up for it?
