Days of Thunder / Talledega Nights Meetup

How about we get our winter speed fix at http://www.speeders.ca/ followed by a stop out for a pint? It looks like it costs $49 for all of 28 laps. Sure, there are two too many wheels, and they are electric carts, but they go 70km/hr. and where else are we gonna "ride" on Thursday nights in the middle of winter?

    and did you know Wed. night it's $40 for 3 races which makes it $13.33 per race? and Fri. night is ladies night (cheaper, but not sure by how much) AND bring your own motorcycle helmets! if you use their helmets, you also have to wear one of their head covers. and the karts are awesome!

    I just got off of the phone with Speeders. It seems at the bottom of each page there is mention of a membership being required to book. The "normal" cost is $15 but due to my surprise (disappointment) they lowered it to $10 each. Sorry for the surprise everyone. Its still going to be a blast - so I hope the extra $10 bucks isn't a deal breaker....

    Cheers,

    Spaces left? What gear do we need to bring if we decide to attend? Helmet, gloves etc... Would be bringing my lady with me

    February 14, 2013

    • Bruce R

      At time of writing there are two spaces left. We should be able to get more, however I am capping my reservation at 10 as I have pay for it up front. Once we are past 10 on the reserved list you can either call and reserve your own for the same time OR take you chances by just showing up. As for gear I took the following from their website:

      February 14, 2013

    • Bruce R

      "You will need to wear an approved safety helmet, which is provided. The use of a race suit is not necessary with our prokarts. Wear comfortable clothes and closed toed shoes. Any long hair must be pulled back into a pony tail. If you bring your own helmet, it must be a full face helmet and must say DOT or SNELL approved."

      February 14, 2013

  • Bruce R

    Better take it easy on those smarties guys, there is a max weight of 260 lbs in the carts..... just sayin' ;)

    Hey all - time changed to 7:00PM Sunday night. I tentatively booked (must wait until they get back to me for confirmation) a group of 10 to get the $49 rate for 14 qualifying laps and a 14 lap final race. The first 10 that RSVP are in, but please understand that you are committing to the $49 price even if you don't show ('cause otherwise I am left on the hook). If we have more interest than 10 we can look in to booking more spaces. For the guys who booked before the time change, please let me know if you are still in.

    Cheers,

    Bruce

    • John

      I'm still in!

      February 12, 2013

  • Bruce R changed the time from 11:30 AM to 7:00 PM

    February 12, 2013

  • Bruce R

    Hey everyone: If we don't yet have the date nailed, we will finalize it by tomorrow (Tuesday) night. Therefore - please get your comments in by end-of-day Tuesday Feb 12. to close on when we should do this.

    Cheers,

    Bruce

    P.S. - For those so inclined - beers to follow. :)

    I'm taking the kids skiing on Sunday, but could go if we are at 7:00pm or later. No work the next day for most - what does everyone think?

    February 11, 2013

  • Dean

    I already have a pro kart license so you'd all be doomed.
