View Full Version : [Melb] Go-Kart day - Sunday 15th April - Cancelled: lack of interest

31-03-07, 08:29 PM
Alright folks, this is the plan!


Sunday April 15th


1:30pm, for a 2pm start. That's a 30 minute window, so don't be late eh!


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

Venue info:


Likely prices:

If we can get at least 10 people, we can have the track to ourselves (check the Prices PDF linked above for more details). If we do that, it'll cost $59 each.

However, it also means we'll have to book ahead, so please let me ASAP know if you are coming - and I mean only if you are 100% sure - so that I can call them and book us in as a group.

Good man.

Oh and everyone, feel free to bring friends! I'm not sure there's enough JDMST members interested, so we might need a few extra folks.

01-04-07, 09:53 AM

04-04-07, 05:19 PM
Haha, only the people that have replied positively to this thread have confirmed. I'll send around another email I guess.

04-04-07, 06:16 PM
If I can get a lift with someone, I should be able to make it.

I'm located in Essendon, N/W Suburbs :)

04-04-07, 07:00 PM
Mike or myself will be able to pick you up. Let me know when your "should" becomes a "definitely", so I can tell the place how many confirmed I have :)

go karting rocks my socks

04-04-07, 11:47 PM
Dori: Sweet as, but like Alfadog said, we can arrange a ride for you if you need it. You're virtually on the way for me!

Alfa: What kinda car ju got?

05-04-07, 08:33 PM
It's JDM.
And it's twincam.
And it's old.

The rest you'll have to guess !!!

05-04-07, 08:36 PM
If it's twincam and it's old, chances are good that I'm not interested ;)

05-04-07, 09:11 PM
The Infamous 4age ? If not ... maybe 3T-GTEU ? 3S-GTE , Were 2T-GEU twincam?

Im tipping old Celica, or something by Toyota ... but probably way off.

For all i know it could be an FJ20 Gazelle.

But then again, im thinking too new .. maybe an ancient Corona, or Crown.

05-04-07, 09:43 PM
If it's twincam and it's old, chances are good that I'm not interested ;)

I thought you were meant to be a huge Z fan?


05-04-07, 09:47 PM
Shit, I didn't think of that.

If that's what it is, I'm about ready to be your bestest bestest buddy.

05-04-07, 10:40 PM
Nah it's not :P I am not quite that rich!!!!!!

its a toyota and you're probably right ;)

06-04-07, 01:23 AM
Hahah, I knew it!

07-04-07, 03:03 PM
I love how ClubITR can organise a dinner with a week's notice and get, let's see, 18 people confirmed, yet we struggle to get more than 4 people to a meet with nearly a month's notice.

08-04-07, 04:57 PM
If we don't get more than 10ppl.
Does that mean we have to pay more than $59ea?

Because I'm not really in a position to be wanting to
pay any more than that.

08-04-07, 05:08 PM
Dunno, I'll find out.

Frankly I'm not even inclined to go if we can't get all of us on the track at the same time, and a minimum of 10 people is the only way to guarantee that.

So if we have to cancel this, we'll just go dinner or something.

09-04-07, 08:04 PM
Mike: Have we ever gotten more than 10 in any meet? Let alone five.

09-04-07, 08:49 PM
Yeah I know, but there's a lot more people on the forum now man. Figured it was worth a shot eh :)

10-04-07, 09:24 AM
I reckon we'll get 10 easily to the dinner meet :P

10-04-07, 04:04 PM
sorry van, wont be able to make it. Have fun guys :)

10-04-07, 06:12 PM
Hahah it was your own idea and now you can't make it! *shakes head* haha.

Well I'm inclined to call this off. I don't want to go if we can't guarantee that we'll be the only ones on the track, and I don't wanna share the track with others.

Who's up for lunch instead?

10-04-07, 06:38 PM
Yeh, maybe we should just leave it as just dinner later this month.

Go go-karting another time?

10-04-07, 06:39 PM
Oh I'm all up for the dinner later in the month, but I'm thinking that if anyone wants to do lunch this Sunday instead of karting, I'm totally up for it.

10-04-07, 06:45 PM
lol don't you have anything better to do with your time :lol:

If we can more than just the regulars going, sure I'm up for it!

10-04-07, 06:47 PM
Hahah dude it's a Sunday, whether I'm spending it with my school mates, my girly, or JDMST mates, what's the difference haha? The Sydney dudes meet like every week almost!

10-04-07, 09:11 PM
man, melb people must suck at gokarting/driving , bit of a piss poor effort eh!

oh well, next time ...

10-04-07, 09:50 PM
I have NEVER been go-karting!!

10-04-07, 10:10 PM
ah bummer.

you sure we dont have 10 ppl.

maybe its a better idea to start off with the smaller, lunch/cafe meets etc, then if we get along, lol, then we'll be more inclined to be involved in other events?

10-04-07, 10:19 PM
Yeah Ryan suggested that as well, and it's a good idea.

So if anyone's up for lunch on Sunday instead of karting, let me know! :)

11-04-07, 12:17 PM
haha sorry van, bit short on money :(

dinner sounds great, maybe go karting later this year/end of year last meet up something like that?

11-04-07, 07:23 PM
potentially keen for lunch on sunday,
where at ?

11-04-07, 07:44 PM
I don't think anyone's down for that either mate. Just spoke to Mike.V and he's going to be busy. So if Dori*mon was saying that he's up for lunch/dinner this Sunday, then it'd just be you me and him. Probably not worth the effort!

We've got the dinner on the 28th, I think we'll just can this week and wait for the next one.

11-04-07, 07:56 PM
yup sounds like a plan.
