You'll never be able to spot me in the morning traffic because I'm totally camaflouged(sp?). I drive a silver civic
Got it before I had an appreciation for cars. I just wanted something that wouldn't fall apart. No worries though, I will soon leave the empire and join the rebellion!

If you look at the guest passes (12/$240) that's like $20. So maybe individual trips are cheaper? Otherwise I don't see this place lasting very long.

Yeah, that's about right.

Post

So did anybody go to the open house and shell out the $2500?

Maybe all of us can get in on a lifetime pass, and use the guest passes for free yearly meets?

What's the deal with this about no seatbelts (see FAQ)? Them's better be some GRIPPY seats I tell you -- 1.5 lateral G's and I am about half as wide as your average American ... hmmmmm...

You could probably purchase a good used racing kart for $2500.
