There is a group of shifters planning on coming down for the August 20th race, should be about 6-8 of us coming down - possibly more.  Any of the local shifters on here planning on attending?

EDIT: More like 10 of us coming, appx. 4 hondas and 6 KZ powered karts.

Heck yes, its worth it!!! If that's what your heart desires, get one!!! If you get a shifter, that's one more than we had! Normally, we will have 2 or 3. And the racer that was there Saturday, that was his first time. At the July race, anothershifter was sold! We were looking foward to having the group of shifters from the Georgia area but something must have come up. If all the shifter drivers would show up at the same time, we would have a strong class!!! Don't hold back!!!!

Hope to see you at the next race!!

most are using the stock Honda's. Primarily for the low cost and maintance. The Honda's seem to be bullet proof, providing proper maintance is followed. Take your pick on karts! Check out various dealers or check out the inventory of karts and engines at CMP.

No license required for CMP, just the usual safety equipment, homologated helmet, neck brace, gloves and racing suit. TonyKart built some of the best kart racing chassis ever during those years, but vey probably it will be much used and flexed. If not and the price is low get it and have fun. A Honda will be the cheapest option, and if you want more speed at a higher price but still affordable get a TM. Now if you want the best of the best get a Pavesi, more expensive and hard to get in the US, but it should be faster than any other 125cc 2 cycle shifter in the right hands.

I also race dirt, but for asphalt I would get a one piece racing suit. If you have a wreck like the one I had last race at CMP you'll understand the difference between asphalt and dirt on your skin and flesh. I have some burns, but without the suit it would have been way worse, and on a shifter it can be even more dangerous. Get a one piece suit, believe me, you don't want to touch the asphalt on jeans.
