Thanks to everyone that turned up tonight .

We all had a ball , Jimbo was the first to arrive and I still think it was to have a practice run before the big race lol . I must say he had it a big go and broke out in a big sweat lol .

It took Bonz a while to get there , blamed it on the GPS of course lol , and then was disappointed to find that the carts had no car kit for his mobile phone.

Leigh was there on time with his big troopy up front , wasn't hard to notice we was a EO member lol .

Will print up a report soon with pics of all the EO balaclava gang .

I made a correction - Horsepower of the engine divided by weight of driver multipled by 3.76553 / angular momentum factor 3.4 divided by starting place on grid. Seems that I really one. Two guys in front of me marked down because of lighter weight!

Was a blast - great night Eric and thanks for organising it!

I must say I was pleased that Andrew was there, I was concerned about who would treat me for an Heart Attack.

Fair Dinkhum, for the last three laps I was waiting for the flag to fall. I was seriously knackered. I've got to lose some weight, apart from my health it retards those little Karts. I've given up the smokes, next is the food. Do I really have to give up sex?

The Kart Mob were great. My little Nephew (The Ferret) who is just 10, participated well and got lapped regularly. After we all got flagged in, they let The Ferret have another 5 or 6 laps on his own.

The Nugget (my eldest) made me look silly. I'll put that down to a 20 kg advantage on his part. I should have let him past earlier and he could have mowed Eric down.

A great night.

Jim.

"Do I really have to give up sex?"

No way. Equivalent to a 4 minute mile they say :)))) In fact, I reckon you've got to increase the dosage LOLOL

I forgot to mention the highlight of the night.

On the way home I was following my brother and a cat ran out and clipped his back wheel, got flung up in the air, hit the road and I got it with the front wheel of the Terracan.

Now that's what you call a Team Effort.

I'm glad you're proud of yourself Jimbo, you've possibly bleep tered the world of a young child somewhere and you are happy to boast about it on a public forum. I find it illuminating that those who brag about their ability to damage small animals are also those who regularly post comment on this forum which is intended to polarise or offend, in an effort to raise their profile. Sad really, that they should feel so insecure. I wonder if there is any correlation between this type of behaviour and a childhood which was bereft of any compassion or encouragement.

Oh Pious One,

Let me bow to your greatness.

Let me beg your forgiveness.

The cat was out at night, the time they hunt and kill native wildlife. Hence they are to be considered vermin. Responsible cat owners keep these evil greatures locked up at night.

I'm the most secure happy family bloke you'd meet. Tomorrow it's around to my cousin's, with my family, my brother's family and Mum and Dad. Then Sunday we'll do it all again at my brother's.

I had the most wonderful childhood. One of my fondest memories is going cat hunting with my brother and father at Batlow.

now now you two

The cat could have belonged to a child....but it may have been just a commodity of some "well meaning" family.....or even a feral pest. we dont know but it in any event it should be locked up at night

yeah i had a grouse time working ya week changing buggers !!

sounds good, next time i'll take yas all on :-)

re- WEIGHT PENALTIES, last time we had a cart night at work, i set the fastest lap for the night in the heat races, and came second in the final, just a bit slow out of the corners. Lost to a guy who has raced proper carts and bikes and weighs about 70kg, me - i was 120kg at the time.

Its all about the ticker (and maybe a lack of grey matter LOL)

It was a good night and thanks for organising it Eric. I think I managed to beat the 10Yo in the half pint cart but that was about it I think. That kid was good and will get faster no doubt. What I did learn was that I am now a 52 yo old fart and 15 laps is me limit!! After that I will be drawing NOS and O2 direct from the bottle through the CPAP wired to the inverter driven from the interference capacitor off the cart to give me some chance in future. I reckon were lookin for a re-match, with the fat blokes like me taking off from the front ....again!! Thanks guys..a good event. Happy Easter folks

A pleasure to meet you Leigh, we need to catch up soon. I'd love to catch up for a trip.

A rematch on a track with less turns and higher powered Karts would benefit us fat boys.

I agree that 15 laps is the limit for us fat blokes. Just for the record, I didn't shunt you or anyone else; I wasn't going fast enough to catch anyone LOL. The Nugget did admit to moving a few aside after he got past me and went after Eric. He could be the one. I'll punish him accordingly LOL.

The little bloke (I'm a proud Uncle) is a four time Victorian Little Aths State Champion. Afterwards his Dad asked him did everyone slow down to pass him and avoid him? He said "Yes except one who hit me as well".

Not sure excactly who that might have been. Only someone out for personal glory and recognition would do such a thing. His Dad is not impressed. Nor is his Uncle.

I wonder who that might have been??? Certainly not you Leigh.

Cheers,

Jim.

OOOoooops, but I can assure you it was only a tap...and after all I did apologise to him. Please, you must believe me...I was standing almost upright on the brakes, sweat dripping down my face, glasses fogged, feeling battered and under threat from testosterone charged 4 wheelers, and there I was...presented with an opportunity...to ram or not to ram. Mate..it was as easy as...and he didn't even see it coming!! LOL of course. Nah, I just couldn't stop in time..error of judgement and he took it as a real little champ would...graciously. I agree, a trip is on and look forward to getting something off the ground before the weather turns to mud. Cheers for now

Leigh, Mate, your little harmless tap (if it was you) was not the heartless shunt the little bloke endured. He's a hard little bloke, tolerates some tough treatment and didn't complain. It was just a question his Dad put to him.

He reckons he knows who hit him.

Anyway Mate, contact me at jimbest at internode dot com dot au.

A bloke with a grin like your's is someone I'd like to catch up with.

Cheers,

Jim.
