    1st March is my choice, epic 14 collides with 22nd Feb.

    I'm up for our annual trip to the Karting, wherever we land.

    Me no have iRacing :(, me no want iRacing :p

    Let's assume it's gonna be 1st March.

    One other idea maybe, we might be able to do the karting on the Saturday night? I sometimes wondered if the racing day felt a bit short with the karting in the middle as if we do the Monaco event it takes a few hours (with travelling) which is more than we usually spend watching F1.

    Do you mean have the race day on the Saturday and finish with the karting?

    Nope. Karting on Saturday evening (either Ayr or Glasgow) and then race day LAN on Sunday.

    Going to be selfish here.

    If the karting is in Glasgow I all for splitting it. If the karting is in Ayr I'd prefer a single day.

    How about a different thought. Assuming we're doing Ayr karting, plan the karting for last thing so we get a whole day of racing in the shop, clear up, go karting in the evening and home from there.

    I prefer the idea of splitting it into 2 days, would rather have a whole day of racing rather than splitting it midway.

    Might be we need to look at Glasgow for the karting, the place in Ayr is in a spot of bother according to the local rag this week.

    How many would be up for this on Saturday night on Feb 28th at one of the Scotkart venues (ideally Cambuslang, it's bigger if I remember correctly)?

    £29.75pp Grand Prix 2 – 10 lap Qualifying race for position, 14 lap Grand Final with Grid Starts, Medal Presentation (1 ¼ hours)

    If it's too short notice, we could always organise it in a few weeks instead and just have a full day of race LAN on 1st March.

    I don't think doing Glasgow karting and race LAN on same day is a good move, it's too much to fit in one day.

    is that 2 x 10 lap qualifiers or is the race called grand prix 2 ?

    As for dates, I should be able to get the 1st off for the Lan. I'd be biased as to have the Karting a week or so after to make sure I can get that off as well.

    We'll look at doing the karting some time in the future.

    I'm run off my feet at the moment and ideally for Scotkart we want to try and get a decent group and book an event, but best to put it a month or so into the future and do it properly, giving everyone ample time to be available from work etc.

    I'll update the first post in this thread now for LAN on 1st March.

    Would have liked to put in a more serious game like iRacing / Project Cars but realise not enough people will have it. Shift 2 was really erratic, so suggesting we pick up cheap keys for GRID Autosport - even if it's a bit arcadey, should still be fun at least.

    I dunno if the trial of rFactor 2 maybe allows multiplayer - that with the NGTC Civics could maybe be fun, I'll try and check that out during the week.

    Put up a spaces list - let me know when posting if you need a key for GRID Autosport and I'll PM you a link and code (obviously this applies to LAN attendees or if you're coming along for the first time, if I know you through the store you're welcome to one)
