As most of you can tell, I've been really busy lately with the Holidays and work but I'm going to find out about having a get together at Victory Lane Karting in January. They have new go karts that are supposed to be a lot faster then the previous ones. Afterwards, I'd like to have a "Carolina Meet" so we can discuss the 2005 seasons' events and open up a forum for any member to ask questions, give suggestions, or just a chance to get together. Nothing has been done yet as far as reservations but I'll get the information together for everyone. I'm thinking January 8, 2005 with dinner at Carlo's Italian Restaurant unless some one else knows of a better meet place that can accommodate at least 20 - 30 people?

Your thoughts??

Victory Lane is indoor, and the best karting you will come across, in my opinion. One word sums that place up......FAST!:thumbsup:

So far, this is the list I have of people attending:

Burke Dawson (Beverly?)
Tony Sorrentino
Jason Herd and Lan
Mike & Tina Boyle
Scott Allan
Greg Oswell
David Lewis
Matt Crutchfield

Here is what they will set up for us:

3 races - 1 practice, 1 qualifier, 1 actual race. (6 min, 8 min, 10 min) or you can run more for $5.00 more.

The cost is $50.00 per person. They can have as many as 13 carts on the track at one time and they have the new 9 hp engines which I hear are very fast and can reach speeds of 35 mph. If you have your own helmet then I would suggest bringing it with you. All of this is set up on a 1/3 mile road course! :bounce:

Also, we'll eat Italian afterwards and have a meeting to discuss the 2005 events. I'll update the list as we get people signing up! :thumbsup:

Tony,
Don't know if you have talked to Ronn Hale about special pricing or not. He still works there part time and can probably get you the best price. He's always come through for us when we go to VLK. email me if you want his new email address or phone #.

Terry, I can meet you in Rock Hill on I77 so you can find the place without hunting it down with a map.

hey Infamous, when you come up to the 77/85 interchange, after you go past it, look to your right, there is a long white building, on the corner of the building is Victory Lane. Take your next exit, right off exit, then next right, go to bottom of circle, and follow the driveway around to the karting center. Hope that helps!

Mike, is there somewhere around the 85/311 interchange that we can meet up with them?
we can just go to where I 85, and business I 85 split and wait for them.

Dave, here is my cell phone number, so you can call me when you guys are getting close to Greensboro

I'm thinking like I'll stroll down there and watch... I may even participate if there isn't too many people (ie overcrowded). I'm sure you and a few others might want to look at the "stock black supercharger option" perhaps... maybe take a ride. It's gotten a wee bit faster since the last time you rode in it :D:D:D

Too bad, I was looking for any and all reasons to trade up.... maybe I'll work on my top 100 reasons to buy a new mustang for the 06/07 model year. There should be a wide selection between the GT's and the Cobra's. :fordflag: Hmm, maybe I can set up a 69 fastback for the track. I can see it now... where was I... :scratch:
Oh, Saturday, right. :)

I'm aiming to be at Hardees a bit earlier to grab a quick lunch.

See you Saturday!

Well, we all had a great time and you still could have eaten dinner with us as it is always fun when you have 30 plus members eating dinner together.

I got black flagged at the karting facility for "going too fast". I said, WTF, I mean if you didn't want me to run wide open then why not govern the karts down. They said I was too aggressive and was bumping too many others around the track. Thanks to those yo-yo's I went from number 5 to number 11 in the final race. That was not fun but the event sure was a lot of fun for me anyway! :thumbsup:

I guess the funniest part was when I literally did a 360 in the middle of the track. :rotf:

Glad I got to go out and have a little quality time with the rest of the club. There's always next time for you. :)
