surprise surprise they didn’t contact me yesterday. i’m not going to chase them right away as i don’t want to appear too keen. if we want to negotiate with them our leverage will be limited if we’re too eager.
as it’s an indoor go kart track and no one in london currently offers this, or looks like they will, i think we will have to be prepared to pay slightly over the odds. as for session length i’d imagine it’s 2 hour track hire and then up to us how we divide it. we’ll see what pans out but i’ll consult back here when i know more.
as i mentioned earlier in the thread we’re a long way from db limits! still need to find out if they’ll let us on track, how much it is, how much time we get, how many allowed on track… db limit will be right at the end of the process fella. i’ve got a full system on mine with no baffle and it passed a test at brands indy. this is an indoor track in the arse end of SE london so doubt they’ll be many resident complaints, especially as this is the first one they would have ever had there!
starting to get a bit hacked off with this lot now. they’re not answering the phone and i’ve called them about 5 times today. starting to get the impression they may be giving me the runaround. will keep trying but i’m starting to loose faith
oh dear. right finally got back through to mike today. it seems there was some confusion regards his understanding of ‘supermoto’. he thought i meant mini moto! :hehe: they haven’t got the height clearance for full size bikes there so it’s a no-goer. :crazy: i only found out as i heard him describe them like that to a colleague. imagine his (and our) faces as we turned up! woulda been like arriving at oompa loompa land or something.
massively disappointed after all that, not least by stringing you guys along too. really sorry about this, i hate topics like this they’re completely pointless - ‘let’s do something’ ‘yeah yeah’ ‘oh hang on we can’t’
Now that winter is here and the roads getting greasy and gritty, I think it’s time for me to do another one It always seems to be horrible weather when I turn up.
Still at least a couple of weeks before I get the all clear from the doctors though
ahh thats a shame was looking forward to this untill i saw it wasnt happening anymore. I want to get an SM track day together in London more than anything! there must be a track somewhere that is willing??? I know this go kart track in croydon that said it would be possible before but the track is wayyy to small… Think it was called track or tracks
