City/Town: Wohlen
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: KartBahn

ok is anyone up for some on track karting action?

http://www.kartbahnwohlen.ch/

track is near(ish) zurich and baden, outdoors, petrol karts. They won't let you race on the hire karts so it would need to be fastest lap.

(well you can race, but they wont allow you to start in a race fashion, they stagger you out of the pits, if your sly eveyone just does a rolling start, bunches up on the first lap then goes for it)
Time and date to be arranged, Need to get a feel for the numbers before I book the track, will be a weekend rather then a week night.

Update - Track is booked for Sat 28th Aug 1pm, you need to be there at least 20 mins before
RSVP'd Yes: 7 (5 members and 2 guests)

Just add your rsvp again with just a yes.

I think I am still in.

Do we have a handicap for the expert kart racers if we are doing timed laps?? Although I am up for a secret race...

I fear my 1 go on a kart track 15+ years ago won't hold me in go stead.

Re: Karting At Wohlen

Mama G wants a shot, but asked it there are ladies tee's... not sure if she's got the right sport, but if you see a woman with golf clubs looking confused and a guy hitting his head off the armco, say hi

Re: Karting At Wohlen

mmm, this is a nice activity. It's just that I only know last minute if I will be able to make it. Is it also OK when I just show up?
