Rod Powell from The Ridge Motorsports Park has offered a saturday within the next three weeks for kart testing (no specific date). $3000. Not sure whether that covers corner workers and/or emergency personnel but the opportunity is there if we want it.

I dont want to spend much time on this if we cannot quickly get 15-20 serious takers or perhaps a lesser number with fat wallets. I dont have kart club money to put towards losses so unless we get some interest...

PM or email or phone is encouraged.

I spoke with Rod Powell today. He wants to provide us an inexpensive and dry track day after our lousy rain race. The price is still $100 which is VERY inexpensive. Spread the word to those not on the forum since we need a good turnout.

He will be keeping an eye on the weather forecast and will make the call mid week prior if the chance of rain is too high. We will announce it here on the Forum.
It is possible or even likely that we'll trade sessions with motorcycles if the kart turnout is insufficient to cover expenses - Rescue, Flaggers and Insurance.

I spoke with Kart-o-Rama. Roger intends to be there.

Here is the list of names we have compiled so far as confirmed or possible entries (sorry if I mis-spell someone's name. Please correct me) Keep the names coming. We need 30 for an ALL KART day.

Mika Salkind
Jeff Newman
John Sullivan - maybe
Jim Ballersby
Richard Keen
Chris Luessen
Ron Luessen
John Wright
John Kappler - maybe
Blair Nelson
Rus Dyer
Martha Morse
Ed Alverson
Brian ice47
Eric Johnson
Gerry cyber1
Ty Schlorer
Rob Schlorer
Greg Cavouras
John Benson

Hi gang, as Blair said, what we are trying to do is get you guys out on the track when it is not a monsoon.

Would love to see all Karts, then you would have the day to yourselves, and likely get sick of driving.

This event will be "revenue neutral" as they say, in that The Ridge does not want to make a profit, we merely want you to see what we have to offer. Believe it or not, yours was the only race event rained out all season. And we feel obliged to at least try and get you some decent, dry track time.

At any rate, stay tuned. As Blair said, we are watching the weather closely. As of today (Saturday, Oct 27th) there is 40% chance of rain, according to the weather channel. Notorious Liars, that bunch at the Weather channel :-)

And, believe it or not, we actually get less rain days in Shelton that Seattle. We get more inches, that is true, but actually less days, as the clouds do not pass over Puget Sound and recollect moisture.

Stay Tuned.

Rod Powell and the TRMG team

Hi Rod, will we be able to park trailers in the pit area Friday late afternoon if this is a go?

You can always park the day before, no worries.

However, the weather, which I am monitoring closely, is barely cooperating. So look tomorrow for an announcement, and if anyone has what they believe to be a reliable weather source for the PNW (I cannot believe I even said that, "reliable") let me know at

info@ridgemotorsportspark.com.

Weather underground says 70% chance rain
Weather Channel says 30% chance rain
King 5 Weather says rain likely.

Crap

AccuWeather is saying:
"Chance for a bit of rain or drizzle" and is showing Friday and Sunday pretty good so it may end up being OK for Saturday

The only reliable source of weather info in the PNW is a window.
