I like the ideas. 

At the core, The Challenge is about editorial content. This also means that Cycle Karts might not fit The Challenge but Gainesville in Oct is where you will find all the writers and cameras of GRM in one place. I am sure there is the ability to get some cool pics and some cool words into the GRM medias.

Said another way, "if you build it, they will write about it!"

and many of US are in Gainesville in October!

I understand safety and finding space to allow us to do things and getting past the liability aspects. I'm just spit balling ideas, since that is where you need to start. Once we have an idea we all like, then we can sort out the logistics...

SVreX, it'd be a lot of extra stuff for me to bring on a 2000 mile round trip just for a concours. Not saying I wouldn't still want to build one, but we even get to race our valve covers! What if we just had to judge which valve cover racer looked the best?

Heck, even a 60ft drag race would be fun. Maybe setup a barrel race like they do at rodeos?

In reply to Robbie :

I’d like it too. 

That’s why I suggested a local farm. devil

Bump. Is anyone building and bringing one to the challenge this year?  October is rapidly approaching.

With building two Lemons cars, I have had zero time. The engine, and CVT are sitting in a box on the shelf. sad

After I get these stupid cars out of my shop...we'll see.

I’d love to, but the GRM staff pretty much closed the door on this at the town meeting at last year’s Challenge.

Can you please elaborate?  I wasn't at the town hall meeting (obviously)

I know they karts aren't legal to enter the challenge, but I thought an exhibition type showing / sub class was in the works.  ( I still plan to build one of these with my boys)

In reply to Indy-Guy :

My understanding was that the staff felt they needed to focus their resources on cars. 

They can’t be driven at the track property (liability), and staff will be too busy to be involved in any way.

They'd still look great buzzing around the pits!
