For those that might be iffy on your Membership being up-to date, no problem. We can renew your Trillium membership at the Location. Just arrive 15 minutes early to take care of it.

go here to see how points will be awarded
http://trillium-bmwclub.ca/content/2011-trillium-club-go-kart-series


The program is set up so it is fair for everyone. We will draw chips with kart #'s on them and that's your kart. It's the luck of the draw which kart you end up with. Before each qualify/race you will draw again for a different kart.

The location is really easy to find (410 and Steeles, 5 minutes from the 407)

http://maps.google.ca/maps?hl=en&tab=wl

Bring your helmets if you got em, for those that do not have a helmet Formula provides helmets with head covers.

Laps are usually around 30 seconds, my personal best is 26:16 If you can beat it I'll give you a hug. There are people who have run in the 25's but they're freaks, we don't need their kind round 'err. If I see anyone running in the 25's you will be disqualified.

For those that have not met me you might not know that I'm a little bit of a jokester, so the above paragraph mentioning people being disqualified for doing really good....... is false.

Just so that's clear.

Price per person is $50.00 no tax
Let's have some fun guys and Gals See you on the 9th!

Any questions or concerns you can email me at

david.richer@stevens.ca and I will reply asap.


Cheers!

Are the gas karts at this place fast enough that you're not always at full throttle?
What happened with GP Kartways? Those electric karts are pretty good.

These are fast karts. Some have more grip than others so depending on what you get you will have to brake in one, and not in another...instead flog it around a corner. I personally mostly drift them except for 1 corner. But the odd time I'll get a fast kart that's set-up differently and I'll have to brake in most corners. It makes it fun for competition.

Recently I did downsview (GP) and compared to Formula I wasn't impressed. It felt boring to me. So this year it will be at formula *wiggle*

Next year maybe we can do a poll.

Khurram, if you're new we want you! Fresh Meat! haha jk
In the drivers meeting I'll go over what's acceptable and what isn't. If you're new you'll learn fast. It's a really good chance to get out, have fun, socialize, and most of all be competitive!
Hope to see you there



Remember it starts This coming SUNDAY!

Glad to see everyone show up on Sunday! We had a blast!

Here's the Points awarded so far.

Mickhail...58 points
Me..........54
Randy......52
Devon......52
John........50
Devlin......50
Martin......46
Javier.......42
James.......40

Everyone is still in the running so far! It's still early!

Edit: Just had to throw in that in my 2nd race I LAPPED 2 people on the 3rd and 2nd last lap.
I informed the supervisor that it's really not fair to have a kart like that out there. I now have the burden of testing each kart before the event *rockout* to see which ones need to be spruced up. A daunting task I know, but I'm gonna take this one for the team. *wiggle*

That's good news Dave... I didn't like getting such a shit kart that I managed a 4th place finish after starting in pole!

davericher20
01-13-2011, 11:26 PM
I understand, that would really piss me off, I know how good of a driver you are. Even though each kart is different in many ways, I'm gonna try and get them as close as possible.
But remember also that it's setup so that everyone has a fair advantage/disadvantage if they get a good/crappy kart. Just the way it works.

Thanks for organizing a fun event Dave. It's nice that we had the track reserved for us the whole night and didn't have to wait for anyone.
However, I don't think I'll be going back to that place. It kinda sucks that they aren't fast enough to have to do any real braking. Plus the variability in karts was huge. My fastest lap was in qualifying. Also that place was so poorly ventilated that my throat was sore for a couple days after and everything I was wearing reeked of exhaust.
I'm going to stick with the electric karts at GPKartways.
Good luck with the rest of the season!

I was at GPK less than a month ago, their karts were pretty poorly matched too :(

davericher20
01-14-2011, 05:01 PM
Just a reminder to everyone. There is NO place that has every kart completely matched. It just doesn't exist.
1 or 2 karts are either really shitty or really amazing.
I'm going before the event to test them and tweak every kart so they are matched as close as possible.

Just to be clear, I definitely had fun and it was really good value for the money. The track layout is pretty good too, better than GPK. If I wasn't too busy these days with our new baby and everything, I'd probably overlook those issues I mentioned.
You guys are right that any karts are going to vary in speed. They actually were relatively close, only 1 was faster and 1 was kinda slow.
Good luck to everyone!

I'm going before the event to test them and tweak every kart so they are matched as close as possible.

By going there beforehand to help "match" them doesn't necessarily help. My last race (started Pole, finished last) wasn't because of a slower kart, it just didn't turn left (rights were fine!). I kept hitting the outside wall from crazy understeer (stone-cold tires from an un-used kart) which opened the gap for everyone to sneak by. It wasn't until the 10th lap that the front right tire got heat in it to maintain a somewhat tighter turn-in.

01-17-2011, 09:18 AM

You can jump in for as many as you want. It's best 4 out of 5 so if you came out to all 5 your worst score would be dropped. If you come out to the remainders all your scores will count towards the end.

davericher20

If your brother is a Trillium member then yes it's the same cost.
If he isn't he can't participate. I will be renewing and or issuing new memberships if you can arrive at 6:30.
The yearly membership fee is $62.15 including HST.
Your brother can be an associate member for $15.00 plus HST if he arrives with you.

740-iLL
01-22-2011, 10:48 PM
So if he comes with me, becomes an associate member of trillium for $15.00, then he may participate by paying $50.00?

REMINDER GO KARTING is on tonight! A rather large group is forming for this evening some are go-karting others are just coming out to meet. I'll take this opportunity to discuss with the community about the upcoming year! Things like on track events, Autocrossing, cruises and meets. Anyone interested should attend for this impromptu meet, and if anyone has anything to add, or share or just wants your voice heard this is the event to attend so we could put forth your ideas for the year of the BMW and Mini crowd!

See you all tonight!

I had an awesome time guys! It was great meeting and getting to know you! I hope we're all still friends after the beatdown you took by Me.

Dave.......(sigh) I actually think you're one of the best drivers I've ever seen. The way you handle the powerful gokart it looks like the two of you are one. How do you do that? The only person that would ever even come close to you is Senna or Schumacher.......:cool:


I know I know :puke:


Seriously, great time, good fun, amazing people.
Good job guys, definetely some skilled drivers and we all gave each other a run for our money in each event. As long as everyone had fun my goal is accomplished.
