Still fun even if it sounds like a lawnmower, reminds me of karting at Erbsville when I was young. It's unfortunate that there's nothing legit in terms of rentals around here for shifter karts. Best you can do is that arrive and drive league but those karts aren't very good.

So, a few of us went to check out GPK on Wednesday night after not being there for 2 years. The track layout is slightly different. Since it was public karting we were running at speed 2. It was fun because it was competitive but not exciting. Then the last run of the evening we pressured the guys to put us up to speed one..............and they DID! WOW, I forgot the difference. Our lap times dropped an average of 1.2 seconds but that doesn't tell the whole story, the feel was more impressive. One of the guys in our group that was there even said, I'm going to HAVE to come now because this is awesome! Just giving you all a heads up of what to expect! See you there!

Damn, you're lucky Dave. I got penalized when the leader in my group came across my front like Devon did.

I'll have to remember my GoPro for next time.
