Nigie

Organizers requested the drawings that I posted last year
If they stick to the drawings, the base of the ramp should be 12ft. and the height at the back should be 4ft.
Which means that the ramps should have an angle of about 15 degrees instead of the 45 degrees that we started out with last time.

The price to attend is free and should the Rampersadsings and others take part, I understand from last night's meeting that $10,000 in prize money will be distributed across the board.

Some of us wasting time racing cars with engines that burn fuel, so build a box with four wheels, get paid and retire.

And the ramp has actually been built to specs. suggested.

We are allowing kart width to be up to 3 feet 6 inches, and length- wheel base 6 feet.

Following our briefing meeting on Wed. night, and with dialog with those in attendance, we have agreed, as suggested by the females present, that there would be no separate class for female competitors.

Concerns were expressed about those holding the Kart before start, attempting to give a push.
We shall have two separate officials looking at the release by those holding.
If there is any attempt at pushing, the competitors will receive a one-second penalty.
And a first warning.
If there is a second attempt at pushing, a two-second penalty will be applied.
A third attempt and the competitor shall be disqualified.

Our ARA team will be there from 9:00am when the road will be closed off and we put the infrastructure in place. We hope to complete this by Noon and have a formal opening by his Worship the Mayor of Arima and his Team.

Then hold a drivers meeting.

Then we get into practice. The length of practice will be determined by the number of competitors registered.

No entries shall be accepted after 12 Noon. All competitors shall report to the Control Tent where Arima B. C. officials shall collect the entry form and entrance fees, and issue competition numbers.

On arrival at Arima, competitors are permitted to enter the Car Park of Royal Bank - go pass the Market from the West, go straight at the Cross Road, swing right into the RBC Car Park. From the Car Park teams can pull their Kart through the RBC Exit tunnel, and on to the road, which will be the pit area.

Congratulations AutoSport - another event well done! Sorry we weren't there on Sunday with our box cart to defend our 2nd and 3rd place wins from last year.

Now, I do believe Rawle accepted a bribe so the Mayor could win. We will have to investigate this. We are going to call in the same team that is investigating the e-mailgate right now - okay as soon as they have done the PNM/PP case - so we should have the final result of this in a few years.

In the meantime congratulations to the people of Arima for supporting this event and the Mayor.

Now you see why the only rich people in this place are lawyers and Politicians!
Is the "holder", the man holding my Kart that probably collect the money.
I did explain that I have already lodged a protest and paid my protest fee of $500.0 to object to the manner in which the Mayor's Kart shot off the ramp. The International experts already checking for NOS and hidden Turbo. And then we going after the DNA.

And people trying to tell me bout "power to weight"!

Funny how AutoSport had this Box Kart Derby in Arima, well executed and praises all around.....and we make the front page of the Express today! And no, we didn't pay any bribe for that!

Look how a lil effort can bring so much fun, expose the younger ones to what a real box Kart with "skater wheels" looks like and provide a handsome pay-day!

Wel done Nigie!

But seriously, come with an old V8 block resting somewhere in the back, and take the advantage away from the Mayor :lol:
