We have indicated to Team Pressure Extreme, AKA Gormandy Engineering of California, based in Sea Lots, that we will be working with a 30 degree rise/incline.

Love the suggestions proffered by Red Dawg Engineering and will be applying to the Patents Office for "permission to use"after paying the appropriate "copy-rite" fees which we hope will be slightly less that the Marley Boys $200,000.00 fees.

So we move on.

Oh and remember we have been saying that the ramp will be eight feet and Karts not longer that 6 feet!

at 45 degrees, a ramp will have the same height at the back as it's length at the base.
by my estimation, the ramp in the pictures, which is 1/3 the height of it's length at the base, is only 15 degrees.
I think that 30 degrees might still be a bit ambitous.

Some additional information following last night's meeting at the Arima Town Hall:

WE hope that all competitors will be up by 11:00am.
Competitors to enter Royal Bank Car Park (opposite Pennywise) with service vehicle and Box Kart
Box Karts to be pulled to ‘Pit Area” located between Market and Royal Bank
No Entries accepted after 12 noon on Sunday.
Start at 1:00pm – provided all vendors are out of the way.
Length of run is approximately 330 feet.
First 90 minutes will be for test runs for ALL competitors.
Remember the basic rules of not less than 50% wood, this will be determined by Event coordinator Cheryl Lalla.
And again we repeat requirement of a hook to tow Karts back to the top.
Simple Drag Racing Rules will apply, including loss of run if centre line is crossed.

Depending on the final number of entries, Karts will be paired and we will be running races and gradually eliminate competitors when they have lost twice.

Among the entries received were from families that will be sharing their Box Kart, so that we do have some 12 and under, and then the older one in the over 12 Class - real family type event.

And already we are seeing the challenges from the so-called big-time racers with their International connections lending design support. Good thing it have F1 this weekend else they might just try to bring in the F1 front spoilers that get bolted on in seconds.

But wait, this Kart have 8 wheels!
So back to the regulations for these guys, I feel that they have secretly brought in Pininfarina.
Just waiting to see what that high-powered team from California in Sea Lots coming with.

And nice to se we have some teams from the South, Central and then the Kamikaze attack, sticking together God alone knows what!
If it is anything like the B13 Rally car we in for a treat. And if the father gets involved well is more trouble.

Spring loaded device to pole vault the kart over competitors that are in the way, plus sturdy bumper to push others out of the way.
Are you sure that box kart racing isn't a contact sport?

like the Initial Drag and Wine...if this event is consistent....the levels of competition will be awesome amongst the teams...The father -Son thing with Team Cozier and the AutoNation Team was something we need to see more of...

Was good going up against the greats like the Gormandy guys...and the picong in the "Pit area" about lodging a protest after the 16.6 run....

Was a good event overall.The rules were bended though which made it unfair to others who stuck to them.It stated the kart must be built out of MAINLY WOOD!!!
I guess if we where to stick to that rule there would've only been 5 competitors.

So finally able to stage an event on the roads of Arima and did not break the speed limit.

Big thanks to His Worship the Mayor of Arima, the Dep. Mayor and the Councillors, The Borough Police led by Inspector Preito. And of course Cheryl Lalla Event coordinator in conjunction with the ARA Team.

The competitors, some with real serious design and the long hours especially the BSL BlackStarLine Racing Team of Arima who set a National Record for Box Kart Racing. Christian Cozier three generations present including Grandfather Winston Cozier one of the pioneers of Circuit Racing in T&T.

The Gormandy Engineering team who built two racing machines, one selected by the Arima Fest Committee as winner of Best BOX Kart, the State of The Art and AutoNation team who came with one Kart and FOUR drivers, the Dindial and Rampersadsingh teams from South. Full report will be done separately, but from all appearances, we are on our way!

And yes Wagon R we already looking at a full championship series that we can move around the country, but yuh know our luck, somebody will start to ask for special licence and sanction.
