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.

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.

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.

So if he comes with me, becomes an associate member of trillium for $15.00, then he may participate by paying $50.00?

I also want to mention that Devon made the fastest lap time of the series so far and the fastest I've personally seen!
