Brought home the gold..

Had a company sponsored race kart event yesterday as payback for some hard work our team has put into things lately.

The karts were decently fast, I'm guessing around 7 hp .. the track was indoors and quite nice. We got up to about 40mph down the back straight.

I brought home the gold, got a trophy for 1st place. Go me! :)

It was a good group, from the experienced to the inexperienced and overall everyone was pretty fast.

There were 25 laps for qualifying and then there was a 40 lap race. Each lap was roughly 30 seconds. I qualified first, and lapped my boss once, and my two co-workers twice by the end of the race.

Maybe the race kart school I went to last year had somethin to do with that... :P

Still, lotsa fun followed with beer and food.

Today my back is VERY sore, I'm bruised up good all over my spine. Those things beat the crap out of you and I feel it...

They have an expensive little set up like here, I haven't been there yet but I'm told spinouts are common.

I've always been curious about the "cart racing" that involves motorcycle engines. But annoyingly, I can't get ideas of those being flimsy and relatively dangerous little toys out of my mind.

Annoyingly, the only other open-wheel racing I know of above that is the low-end formula stuff, where cars cost like $30k, plus an engine. Though I guess there's those kinda "modified" oval racers too, but I dunno if that really counts.

You'd think someone would come up with some kind of entry level formula thing where the car is like $10k, or something vaguely affordable.
