Its a Meet at a go-kart place in Braintree. Its a ton of fun...check out their website:

www.f1boston.com

Alright y'all. I missed a call from the F1 rep yesterday so I will try and follow up with them tonight or tomorrow. I am thinking of organizing this meet for 11am and then have the buffet from about 12:15-1:30ish. This is what I am going to shoot for unless the masses think this is too early.

**Please note that if racing begins at 11am you need to be there by 10am for a briefing, licensing, and a safety video. They will note let you race unless you see the video. I've been there about 3 or 4 times and have gone through it every single time.

Here is some more additional info. Please note that this is a little pricey so I am leaning towards the half hour although if we get enough people we can do the 1 hour bit and have a grand prix type event.

This is for track one, which is bigger. I've always done this one and its hella fun!

½ Hour track rental (exclusive use)
$850.00 (Includes day licenses)
Number of races and laps per race vary depending on the number of drivers.

1 Hour track rental (exclusive use)
$1,700.00 (Includes day licenses)
Number of races and laps per race vary depending on the number of drivers.

Assuming we have 17 people that would be 100 bucks for an hour. This should include licensing and everything you need to race for an hour. Track one can hold upto 12 people at once. I will see if any discounts are available. if we do a half hour for 16 people then it comes out to roughly 54 per person with people getting one to two races in.

My suggestion is that if we have 12 or fewer we do a half hour. If we can get 20-24 people then we can optimize the hour and everyone gets at least 2 races in with the top 12 getting a third for the championship. obviously if we get 24 people it also lowers the cost. here is the list I have so far. I am breaking it up because I know some people still want to come out but might not want to race. we have 3 months so if you need to penny pinch a little a dollar a day should be enough to cover you!

and what are the lap times on this track?

and how exactly are we going to be able to race 17 ppl in an hour?

5 races? 10 mins each?

its high speed go-karts, one hour grand prix style race. i think the max ppl is 12 or 16 per race.

Thanks formatsee. Any questions about F1 just check out their website (www.f1boston.com). On track one the max is 12 per race. These are go-karts. I believe laps avg something like 25 seconds and the karts go around 30mph (have to double check). Anyway here are some new details. Please get back to me ASAP if interested. V6 and Acura-Zine peeps getting first dibs but might have to open it up to other forums:

Hey everyone,

I spoke to the manager and got a quote as far as racing. Please note that this is not the final price but I need everyone who is interested to pay me so that I can reserve the time and day. I am still looking to bring the price down but in the meantime I do not feel like putting down all the money and then having people back out at the end. The necessary deposit is $850 and so I need everyone on the list below to give me their $65 by Sunday (3/13/05):

1. ferizzo
2. DEI99662
3. SONNYS99TL
4. UnsanePyro
5. Ray Khan
6. SSMTL04
7. Always Dirty
8. Greenmonster
9. savage
10. TI_TSX
11. jfonz25
12. JMoMo
13. ls91crx

Once the final price is determined and the number of participants confirmed then I will return any money (if need be). Please note that with the low number of people commited we would do a half hour of racing (although everyone would race the entire half hour...3 races I believe). If we get more people to commit then we would extend it to a full hour.

Some of the guys on the list I know personally but I will let you guys tell me how you would like to pay for it (mail me a check, paypal, or even in person)...whatever is easiest/safest for you. Just as an FYI I live in Quincy and for those further away I can maybe meet halfway. I am willing to meet face to face so that those that don't know me can get to meet me and not feel like I might run off with the money. Should we not get the necessary funds for the down payment I may reschedule or cancel the event (the racing part as we can still have the buffet) and return everyone's money who pays. Please let me know ASAP about payment by PMing me or sending me an email at [email protected].

Thanks,
Freddy

If I don't hear back from people then the racing will be cancelled. The Meet is still going to take place and most likely the buffet but since people are slow to respond I will lose the track reservation this weekend. People should still be able to race but it will be with the general public.

Thanks,
