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'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
I'll be the one in the sparco race suit, fireproof sabelt boots and fireproof top, sparco fireproof socks, fireproof gloves, stand 21 fireproof balacalva and HANS, painted helmet - with the 2010 scrutineering sticker - and 2010 National A licence.

I'll be looking to crash big time so get the **** out of the way.


NOW that's a psychological edge

You sure?

When it's wet and everything is burning you'll end up steamed and not burned.

Re: Karting At Wohlen

someone just pointed out that the address on the website may be wrong
http://www.kartbahnwohlen.ch/index2.htm (Just the street name)

I Don't know if it is, I've never needed it! from the map on the site it's easy to find, and signposted from the main road

http://www.kartbahnwohlen.ch/images/...chreibung2.jpg

if you don't have my mobile number already then pm me and I'll give it to you just incase

Re: Karting At Wohlen

Your sat nav will probably take you here:
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=47.328...,0.009645&z=17

And you want to be here:
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=47.325...,0.009645&z=17

So to make it nice and simple, this is what you need to do:

Hope that helps!

Re: Karting At Wohlen

Damn - can't drive 2 karts at once.

Plenty of tail action tomorrow then - although the track show be drying by the time we are out.
