That sounds like a challenge. I'll race you for the slowest lap around the track.

Well I'm all up for a kart.

And if we want to keep it FG'ers only thats cool - but for those who went on the last few cruises I can tell you that these guys would be eager - but I guess I'd only let them know if we need numbers.







Oh and also, as per usual - more than happy to be taking happy snaps :p

We can do a late afternoon karting session followed by a dinner and a photoshoot somewhere.

Only issue I see with Gokarting is someone has to organize with the place and start taking deposits. From previous events, it might be abit hard as people keep changing their attendance and some do not show up.

Sam (aka. FlyingFridge) seems to be missing in action here. I'll give him a pm to see if he wants to organize it since he's done this before and has done a pretty good job :D

Do you have to make a deposit to the karting place? I don't have an issue here -- once we make the commitment to come we most likely will book accommodation etc at the same time.

delurk mode. Interested in meeting melbourne FG peoples & photoshoot. Have missed the previous because of clashes, hopefully lucky this time.

Oh yeah I've met FBC waaaaaaaaaaaay back when he had in aw11 :)
Hopefully he'll vouch for my sanity, although I have bought a mk1.5 MR2 since then....

I never did get that front end vibration fixed on my (much missed) AW11.

Still a Hyundai...but this time an i30
I would love to go to a meetup, but still not enough (just) to go. But if you guys plan to go karting, Le Mans karting is probably the better choice. You've got a choice of two tracks, with the bigger one has faster straights. I went on the other one and I was slow. :p

Whatever you guys end up doing, I hope you enjoy it.

Damn if only I had of seen this earlier!! The meet-up place is maybe 2 mins drive from where I live and I certainly don't need an excuse to go go-karting. Next time for sure!
