9th Annul Spring Sprints/Whitten Tour

When:  March 21, 2009
Where:  K1 Karting, Redmond, WA. 
What:
 We will see who can set the fastest lap time in the 40mph Tesla-like environmentally friendly "green" electric racing karts at K1 Speed in Redmond. You will be amazed at the performance of these karts around the tight and twisty track, where "drifting" around the corners actually produces the fastest lap times. We will arrive at 10AM on Saturday when they first open, register, and do a couple of "arrive and drive" sessions. Hopefully we will all be on the track together. Remember that we are racing against the clock as opposed to each other. The strategy being to get yourself in a position to have a clear track in front of you and set fast time! Please check the K1 web site for prices and other info.   NOTE:  Because of some confusion over the K1 opening time, the group took a quick trip to Greg Whitten's garage to view his collection.
