Hey all,

Was talking today with Mark (Tabs) and we wanted to see what people thought about having a Go Karting event? I've had a look at this place - Daytona - in Manchester. Could have a NW meet there then go for eats in Trafford?

Let me know if you're interested? Haven't got any dates yet but I need to know if people are up for it before enquiring about booking etc.

P.S. I'm the queen of Go Karting so remember this before you sign up [:p]

Hmmm, I could be up for this depending on dates and work commitments.

Just think, I could show Mark a clean pair of heels yet again [:p]
Detune your wagon to 100bhp and around 150 ft/lbs and then we'll see who's laughing then [:D]

I can see this being a really good event if we have a few of us [Y]

Anyone else up for it?

Here's the description from the website

GP Open Heats
The GP Open is popular with Stag Parties and perfect for individuals and groups of any size. Every driver in your group will take part in a pre race practice, followed by 3 obligation heats. The top 32 drivers qualify for the semi finals with the top 10 drivers competing in a Grand Final. The top 3 drivers after battling for 10 laps in the Grand Final will receive an engraved trophy.

Takes place most Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Sounds like fun!
