*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
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)
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

I have nothing planned for the rest of the day so open to anything, my son will also be driving, he'll be in the junior karts (much slower) so much shame if he beats any of you (no pressure lol)

Re: Karting At Wohlen

But he'll be lighter

I have a race in 4 weeks time so it'll give me a chance to get my eye in - I'm sure Wohlen in a kart is the same as Oulton Park in an M3

so last I counted 15 of us who confirmed...trying to get more by asking around but no takers...How many of those who said "Maybe" will come? perhaps we can get some firm commitments...

we'll just have to suck it and see, I'll ask around at work too, the only way to guarantee the whole track is to rent it, but that would be at around 2k chf (thats what it cost the last time I did one of these a few years ago) so people would have to pay upfront, which puts people off. We can talk about it on sat if people are up for more of these.

Re: Karting At Wohlen

37 or 48chf for 15mins - I think.

Exclusive is 4500chf per hour - for 3*15mins sessions (give or take) would require 32 people for it to be cheaper using the fastest karts!

Re: Karting At Wohlen

love to go, but the weather forecast for Sat doesn't look promising for an outdoor event. Any backup plan?

Re: Karting At Wohlen


Just to confirm, we are booked for 1pm, you need to be there 20 mins before at least! (no sneaky practicing tho )

so far I have 1 person needing a lift, so if you need one to and you haven't pm'ed me (or sorted one out yourself) the pm ASAP!

We can grab food and drink after if your up for it

I'll be in the car in the avatar (yes a rover jaro ) and wearing a sparco race suit, boots, carbon helmet and gloves*


*maybe, nothing like getting the psychological edge
