    i had a test day lined up here in wollongong for one of the teams running in the enduros......bugger me it rained, so got cancelled and i couldnt get there on the day they were testing again so i missed out on a gig. Was spewing....

    @PaulCox have you been up to the track at kembla Grange ? Its pretty good (although i havent run there for a while). Even the hire karts get up to about 80KPH at the end of the back straight...
    @Jurassic Mark if you need or are interested in another driver for the wollongong race let me know....happy to pay for a drive if fast enough and you need someone. Realistically a paid drive is the only way i could get into it...dont want to buy and store a kart and trailer.....missus would kill me !

    The Wollongong race is a 1000 lapper. Pretty sure last year it went for over 9 hours. I’ll talk to the other guys to see if we want to run a 5th guy as it gets closer (there’s also a possibility of someone not being able to make it, and I don’t think I’d want to do it with less than 4), so I’ll message you a bit closer (race is 21st July). We all basically pay to drive anyway, last round we all paid $250, and after entry, tyres and some repairs, we had nothing left.

    Last time I did karting I did a couple of laps and as I pulled over, the bloke that runs the thing comes over and said - Oi no professionals. I took my helmet off, I said I'm not a professional. He said - you're not a professional? I said - No, he said - well you should be, if I was you I'd take up Formula One, and if you drive like that you'd probably be the best in the country! I said - I'm not interested I'm making :):):):) loads out of computers.

    Where did you do your karting?
    I've done mine at both Barbagello and the Cockburn ones in Perth.

    By Driving Fitness do you mean overall body fitness or driving ability?
    Cause i'm a fit bloke, run a 5K 'Fun Run' in under 21 minutes.
    Not saying that sweating your box off driving kart isn't good for you, just trying to understand what your saying

    NOTE - I would love to do a kart day. I loved my last set.

    Both absolutely both. I'm lucky my job keeps me fit by running then I get to jump in the karts and get driving fit.

    Edit: I also fun run up the local volcano know as The mount twice a week
