Karting Sept 6th

Postby LEEding-Edge28 » August 21st, 2009, 9:20 am

Next race event for the TTKA will be held on the 6th of september. Last event was full of action and plenty of offs due to the new track and wet conditions. The track continues to improve and lap times will drop as more rubber gets laid down. See you in arima

well u tell him tell him salty dog. i hear you just signed up for 2. lol
prices can vary from $10,000 tt to as much as $90,000. all depends on what class you want to race in. 100cc can be from $10-$30 k 125cc rotax will range from $18-$50k and the shifters even more. that is just for the kart (chassis and engine) ready to run. you still need safety gear and tyres from there to start. And you get what you pay for. Keep in mind there are some great deals just in trinidad alone.

come out to the event on Sunday and ask around. all the karters will be happy to guide you along and help you to get involved

maintaining a kart is a lot like maintaining anything. if you take the time to do the little things from the start its a hell of a lot cheaper than waiting for it to break. tyres cost about $1300-$1400 per set and we use a set every meet. race fuel and other lubes about $300 per meet and i believe entry is $200 per meet. SO roughly we will say about $2000 per race. unfortunately the cost of going fast isnt cheap, but compared to running an evo at rally which is about $10,000 per event, it doesnt seem that bad.

As for the carfreak: Entry is FREE and coolers are welcome. There is supposed to be a caterer. The racing is held in the carpark of ARC (the horse racing track). all the club ask is that you park your vehicle outside the gate
