http://gokartsport.com/

Le Mans Go Karts
11-55 Waterview Close, Dandenong South

thanks guys.

I'd definitely be up for it, but not for another 3 or 4 weeks I reckon. I just dropped a grand getting some work done on the Golf, and it's back in the shop for some more now haha. Gonna be pretty broke for a while!

im a newbie too but i wouldn't mind going...only problem is i work on the weekends...

Well when we set a date, we'll try to give everyone some good notice. If you're able to get the day off or swap your shift with someone else, that'd be cool! The more people we get, the better :D

The course out at Sunshine - Ace Karts - is the best I reckon, but because it's outdoor, you've really gotta hope for good weather. The Moorabbin course is pretty good though, I've been there about 8 or 9 times.

Luc: Same problem for me mate!

hey guys! can i come!? :P

i recommend the Dandenong circuit. Outdoor circuit, pretty competitive track.

I went the other week, cost me $75 for 10 lap qualify, and two 15 lap races with trophy finish for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I think there are a couple of packages available.

van

Sounds good to me!

van

Alright, how does everyone feel about the following:

Date: Friday 13th April
Time: 8:00pm (open till 10pm)
Location: Le Mans Go Karts - Dandenong South

Sound good? If we can get 10 people together, they'll do us a package and close the track so that the 10 of us can race the shit out of each other. But I'm guessing we can't do that - unless y'all can bring some friends. If we can't get 10, we can just show up and try our luck, according to the lady I just spoke to.

Okay, I've sent a mass private message to the following Melbourne-based users:

Dori*mon, MissyK, Luke, Luc, mzeggy, JMO, dhdevil, gimic, RyanP, Mike.V, Flawless, Sp33dY, spoon, rakfint, clutchcargo, Kijima

Not all of those people are regular JDMST forumers, so the final turnout will probably be less, but still. It's a better starting point than we've ever had before!

Auskarts in Port Melb got a $1 per lap deal on Sundays and Mondays.

Fridays and Sats are no good for me.

gimic
27-03-07, 04:42 PM
Well count me in for sure. Sounds good. I'll speak to spoon and id say he'd be down too. Cant be that hard to get 10 people, surely.

Ryan you cant really get a good run on those $1 lap runs. besides, how much more fun is a grid start and a trophy finish!! :D

van
27-03-07, 04:44 PM
Ryan: Always gotta be difficult don't ya :P

Why are they no good? It's almost a month away, cancel whatever you've got on! ;)

RyanP
27-03-07, 04:46 PM
La Famiglia stuff mate.

Any other day is good.

van
27-03-07, 04:51 PM
Ah right. Well we'll see what the others think of Friday night I guess. Knowing my luck, if I change it to Sunday, I'll have just as many people saying Sunday is no good.

Not gonna be able to please everyone, that's for sure :(

Mike.V?!
27-03-07, 05:21 PM
Dandenong? What the fuck?

Dori*mon
27-03-07, 05:37 PM
defiantely hope to make it, so is it dandenong?

Luke
27-03-07, 05:43 PM
that date sound good to me!

we should have moved and settled in by then.

but friday the 13th! we're all gonna die on the track!

jokes, ill have a chat with the folks and see if i can come

van
27-03-07, 06:36 PM
Mike.V: Whine less and suggest more, jackass. Only a few people have made suggestions, so don't be blown away if we start leaning towards something that whoopsy daisy doesn't suit the people who ain't putting in their ideas :P

Nothing wrong with driving to Dandenong anyway, any car enthusiast should have no problem with a bit of a hike!

Dori*mon
27-03-07, 06:45 PM
well van, if we each bring a couple of mates, we'll easily be able to get 10 people. what happens if there is more than 10 people, will they still have to package avail. for us?

van
27-03-07, 06:46 PM
Not sure eh! I'll make another call tomorrow :)

Dori*mon
27-03-07, 07:00 PM

gimic
28-03-07, 09:39 AM
van it probably wouldnt be a bad idea to have a limit as to how many ppl come. its a track that allows a bit of a traffic without it being shit, so i reckon no more then 20 ppl.

van
28-03-07, 10:43 AM
Sounds fair to me cuz.

mzeggy
28-03-07, 12:33 PM

Sorry, net's been down since last week so I haven't been able to log on very often.

I should be good to go most days so long as:
1. I'm not rostered for work (casual)
2. I can get a lift of someone(n/w suburbs).. ryan? :)

ohhhhhhhh

Thanks for the message VAN.

I'm in, if I'm welcome :|

van
29-03-07, 07:00 PM
Ah sorry man, the member list doesn't let you sort by location, so I had to try to remember off the top of my head who is from Melbourne! I did a couple searches for "Melbourne", but your name didn't come up in any of the threads that were in the search results. Either that or I didn't see it anyway.

Anyway, of course you're welcome man!

Alfadog

I haven't posted in a long time... only really just started to get settled down here in the big smoke! I now live in Glen Iris. So Dandenong isn't too far away I hear.

I'm definitely in tho.
