    From this point onward we shall refer to you as "Gopher Hunter" - a mysterious racer often veiled in a cloud of dust that somehow follows wherever he goes :lol::lol::lol:

    Sorry Joe, gents couldn't make due to being at the hospital with a mother that's fractured her hip, only a small fracture but at 94 I would say that's bad enough.

    Glad it was a hit Joe :tup:

    Damn, this looks interesting, and would be keen to be a part of it! BUT it's at 1am my time... and two options for that - I would be a bit tipsy by then, or sleeping haha.

    Stay tuned. I tend to be spontaneous. We may have some one off races in the future.

    Shifter Kart Race
    Where: Kyoto Mayibi (It's the shorter track)

    What: 125cc Shifter Kart
    When:Saturday September 21st 2019 Lobby opens at 8:00am cst. 30 to 45 mins of practice. Racing to follow.
    How: Send me a friend request on PSN (Pigpen13) The lobby will be set to private. I will post the lobby number here. Also, you can search for rooms that friends are in. It's also highly encouraged to join the voice chat. Even if you don't have a mic. It makes giving out info and apologies easy.
    Format: Two 5 lap heat races. One 10 lap feature. No pitting needed. No tuning allowed. Karts are to be stock.
    General info:
    This is my first attempt at this. So, If there are some loop holes or things I've missed let me know. The plan is for FUN racing. No rough driving allowed. With that being said, the occasional bump is to be expected. The karts can be a lot to handle. Please exercise some courtesy. If you bump into someone, give their spot back. If you are in the voice chat, please give an apology. There are no points, trophies, or prize money to be made. Please don't ruin someone's race because you had to be first.
    General info2: This is one of the easier tracks to drive with the kart. Not a lot of gear changes. It's smooth. Should make for some fun side by side racing. I'd like to test some different tracks this week. See you then.

    Had a great Saturday morning on the karts. Surprisingly we didn't run off the new guy. Thanks again Jarod for showing up. Here are some photos.

    General info2: I think we can all agree, we need a more difficult track. So, here it is. Interlogos is a good smooth track. Plenty of right and left hand turns for the whole gang.
    General info3: Since the crazy races seem to be a hit. At the end we will run a 2 lap Mt Panorama in the evening. Be sure to bring a flash light.

    I need to keep this week fairly short (1 to 1.5 hrs) as I have a race Saturday night. Thanks

    Are all these stupid or what,have they not heard of, you can't win if you don't finished.

    You would get less injuries jumping off a bridge, gloves would be a good move and a roll bar above their head.

    Crazy
