Got out to a track this weekend...

Not motorcycles, ~8hp Stratos Karts down in Norway, IL (Trane Motor Speedway).

Showed up at an Arrive and Drive with a friend, about 50 people competing in total. We had a practice, qualifying, pre-final, and final; 6 laps each session.

I hit a 1:05 in qualifying, which is pretty slow, but to my defense I had the slowest kart (it broke down after a couple more sessions). Got placed in the 5th of 6 racing heats, and ended up getting second in both the pre-final and final.

Podiumed in my first event!

BTW my friend and I are looking to rent out the track for a private event (maybe have a session for motorcycles too). If you're interested let me know... enough people and we could maybe get a casual series going with a few races a year.
