I've done the endurance race @ SpeedSportz. That was a blast! Would do again.


Agreed! Lots of fun!

Sadly I haven’t won though.

So after looking at the pricing logistics getting the kart from Indiana etc we are considering skipping the Orlando race and running another 24 hour at a different track in June.

I’ll keep everyone posted


If anyone wants to hit up HKC or speedsprtz let me know I’m DTK for either pretty much anytime

If yall are serious about this, I would highly recommend renting a real kart on real tires in preparation for the event... ie: do an arrive and drive with a shop/team.   Not just do rental kart stuff. 

 

Rental karts are heavy and the tires are typically hard as rocks, so they slide thru the corner.  Real karts grip, load up and lift the inside rear.  They end up driving pretty differently. 

 

 

Where is your weight requirement coming from?  150-160lbs in a 206 kart will put you at Junior level weight without any lead on the thing.

yah I plan to.   

 

There's an experienced 206 driver on the team already.     I plan on doing some arrive and drive stuff soon on 206's as well. 

 

I'm 143lbs barely make 150 with suit/helmet.
