Looking at the long-range forecast makes us re-think our plans for this Sunday’s event on April 8th. You’ll remember that we wrote this on our 2018 schedule;
CARBURETION DAY, SUNDAY PRESEASON PRACTICE DAY
APR 8 @ 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Well, maybe not like Indianapolis and their famous ‘Carburetion Day’, but we hope you get the idea. Yes we know, Indy cars don’t have carburetors anymore, but they still call their last practice day before the 500 ‘Carburetion Day’. What racer doesn’t need an extra Sunday to get ready for the fast approaching 2018 season? This Sunday is an extra practice day for those who can’t make it to the track on a normal Wednesday through Friday practice session (and for that matter those that did practice during the week).
Why attend? Work the bugs out of that new or freshly rebuilt go-kart. Practice laps make all drivers better, so practice, practice, practice. Take advantage of a non hectic race day to check your kart and driver weight. Get your proper engine restrictor installed, Get some time on the computerized scale to dial in handling and where to add that extra weight. Pick up the parts you’re missing. Take you kart through safety tech. Get those new tires mounted up. Meet the old pros and the newbies as we prep for race day #1.
$20/driver practice fee.
Yeah, that long-term forecast suggests rain and 40 degrees for Sunday the 8th. So with that bit of unscientific study we are going to move this practice day to Sunday April 15th. Same schedule, just hopefully a better weather day. See you at the track
