Wnt to do a little shake down on the vintage kart. A parking lot will do. Turner Field parking lot? Somewhere where I will not be chased off cb

They do a lot (no pun intended) of solo/ club event at Turner, but I bet you get run off without organizing it 1st.

I remember driving around until I found a empty lot when I first installed the GSXR 1000 in my old FB (just to make sure everything worked)- I found one and made a few laps then security came out of the building. He did not run us off... just wanted to watch!

Side note- this was a glorious day. Something about cutting the back off a perfectly good race car and just hoping that everything works- clearly it did!

hey chip... try heading behind one those shopping mall or strips that normally only has the freight truck behind it. pretty much no traffic and they are long stretches that are great for testing.

Great pics Sean. I think I speak for all the Rotax Masters karters when I say that we're looking forward to seeing you in the pits and racing with you.

It was cooler our Sun then I thought: worked in the garage putting in more lights, finished building a second electric starter, mic kart and motorcycle work.

Will just have to make it to Barnesville for a good practice day.

Went working from 3-4 days a week to6, so don't have as much time as I did.

But that will change as the weather gets warmer! c
