We used to do demo runs, not real races,at the local tracks: drag strips, paved and dirt ovals.

We have the lanier track (paved oval), Dixie Speedway (dirt oval) Atl Motor Speedway-Thursday night Legends, Atlanta Dragway in Commerence, and road Atlanta.

There was a pit bike race at Road Atlanta as part of the Mitty. I had a neighbor kid (who is now a pilot) run my Briggs Flatty in that race, and we cleaned up! Was a short course using the pit road and a small part of the front straight. Also the SCCA auto crosses at Turner Field.

I can imagine some clones and some shifter karts at Lanier Speedway. Then the kids! That really perks interest. cb

A parking lot at AMS is $5000 plus expenses.

The $5K quote is very close to accurate. That covers lot rental for one day outside the speedway. One of the lots included is smooth enough for karting, has good spectator visibility, and is big enough for a well designed track. The edges of the lot feature curbs that would be bad for chassis, steering components, and axles in the event of contact.

Extra expenses include the speedway security detail, EMS services, trash cans, and lights if the event will be held at night.

Another organization we race with rents these lots several times a year. They aren't cheap, but the service is top notch.

Before GSKA there was GRRA and they had advertised a street race somewhere in GA, I'm not sure if it ever happened.

I believe the one Chuck is talking about was a street race that was held in Athen's a few years ago.

We could have a race behind the Athens mall.

The PKA (Professional Karting Assn.) put on a street race in Athens I think in the 90's in conjunction with the Golden Ginko Festival.

Dicky, Geoff Barnes, me and several others participated. It was alot of fun and there were thousands of spectators.

It would be neat to race there again. Cool
