Thanks for a well-run first event of the season!

Post by djrogers1 » Sun Mar 04, 2018 6:09 pm

Had a great time today. Course was challenging, but fast. I really liked how efficient things went and we started pretty much on time as advertised. It was nice to finish up before 2:30, but would have liked another run (or two).

I agree, it was a GREAT start to the season. Thanks to John for a great course & for everybody working so hard to make it run so smooth.

I had a great time.

Course was a ton of fun... I never got that big kink in the back section right... always behind.

Three cars on course with no overlap really makes for an efficient event.

That was a good course - nothing painful and the slaloms and offsets were narrow/tight enough to slow down the big power cars - Barr in ES was close and Greg would've beat me if he were clean. Fast but fair course.

Thanks to even one for working together to stay on time. Everyone I talked with was really impressed. Only one I heard complaining was me. I really wanted "just one more" lol.

Awesome first event to kick off the season and better weather than we thought it would be. What an awesome course to get us kicked off and hopefully it will help me this coming weekend at the Fort Myers pro. I think Steve, Chris and I are the only ones from ETR going so hopefully we can bring home some wins...... JY

Despite our issues and limited runs, Kieran and I both had a blast. He got three legit runs between the sprocket key failing on his first run and the wheel flying off on his last. I only got two, but it felt great to be back in the kart after the not-so-long winter. Thanks to all the chiefs who made this the smoothest event I can remember.

I remember years ago when I was actually excited about a course that needed 3rd gear. Now, I spend my life at 54.5 mph. It was a fun one though.

I'll echo everyone else's thoughts. Absolute efficiency at its finest. 5 runs and done at 2ish.
We were home at 730 even with a few stops.
Thanks to all who make it happen!
See y'all at Smokies!

Great event the new registration check in works fine. The course was fun JB and JY 👍 like the feel of the new tires. Saved myself on the last run by .002 avoiding last place to a young lady… .sorry Victoria.
