YETI Go go go Karting 2014
« on: February 18, 2014, 11:28:47 PM »
Hey Everyone!
Which of you occasionally feels a Need for Speed? Or does throwing a banana peel followed by a turtle shell get you all excited? Well , that's perfect! As YETI is proud to present the return of

YETI Go go go Karting!

It's a ton of fun and is open to anyone, even absolute beginners! Hell, a few years back, Kelly F came third and she'd never driven a car let alone a go-kart! So come one, come all and see who will be crowned YETI Go-Kart Champion.

When: Sunday March 9th, 12-3pm
Where : AZ Karting, Fruits park, Yamanashi shi
https://www.google.com/maps/place/AZ%E5%B1%B1%E6%A2%A8%E3%82%B5%E3%83%BC%E3%82%AD%E3%83%83%E3%83%88/@35.7031472,138.6596263,18z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x601bfee744bc9ffb:0x7975281265006a19
Cost : 4000 yen / 3000 yen (YETI members)

This includes everything you need including the helmet and the gloves. Just come in clothes appropriate for the day. No open toed footwear though.
The rough plan for the day would be as follows, assuming we have 3 heats per session.

Session 1 - Practice -  Everyone goes out in small groups to get used to the track and cart
Session 2 - Timed laps - Everyone goes out again in small  and tries to set their fastest times
Session 3 - Race time - Ranked by the fastest laps set in session 2, we'll have the bottom third in race 1, middle in race 2 and the final race will be the top third.

***Things to note***

- We are limited to 30 spaces
- RSVP by March 4th please. Any cancellations or no-shows on or after the date will have to pay the full amount.
- If you are coming, let us know if you need a ride from Yamanashi shi station/have a ride/can pick someone up from the station.
- The start time is 12pm. It's not flexible as that is our slot. If you are late, then you'll miss out on track time.
- If anyone needs a place to crash between pub quiz and go-karting, I can put some people up for the night.

Obviously with the heavy snowfall we have had, there will be some concerns about whether it will be cleared in time for the event.
I am going to be talking to the circuit and see what happens.
I went up last Thursday (Feb 13th) and they were fully open after the snowfall on Feb 8th. So I expect them to be open in time too.
So please RSVP and we'll keep you updated.
